Nikon Wednesday 2012: #7

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by uplandlife, Feb 14, 2012.

  1. Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels on the longest side for in-line viewing, and please keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc).

    Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Wednesday threads are right here: Remember: only one image each week!​
    Brrr! A nasty cold snap the other night - with single-digit wind chills and some blowing freezy-stuff - meant it was a perfect evening for some indoor work on a couple of product shot projects. I keep the ol' D200 and some lights rigged up to use like a sketchpad when sifting through the beginnings of some ideas. Headed towards an image with a set of leather coasters (featuring iconic cattle brands), and I thought I'd show the equivalent of a sketch-on-a-napkin. Perhaps a Wednesday in the next few weeks, I'll show the finished version. I hope the bourbon I'm using in the shot's shot glass lasts that long.

    Used your Nikon gear to rough out any ideas lately? Share a photo!
  2. Morning all, my friend's Son from a shoot at the weekend.
  3. Couldn't sleep so I'm in early this week.
  4. Working on a new project for the next couple of weeks so hopefully I will have some available to post. This one is from my favorite place to visit. Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
  5. Taken in December 2011, in Kolkata India, at the James Princep Memorial. D300, Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 @ 70mm, f/2.8, 1/1000s, ISO 200.
  6. Ooops. My previous comment referred to a photo that was not taken with any Nikon stuff. This one was.
  7. Taking Notes
  8. Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day :)
    This shot was taken last weekend on our evening doggy walk. Thought I'd take the new 60mm AF-S along for a change - I usually keep the 24-70 mounted if I don't have something specific in mind.
  9. Grabbed a shot of ducks roughing it through a light morning fog on a crisp fall morning. Finally unloaded the film and had it processed and scanned this week.
  10. A coyote checking out its territory in Yellowstone NP's Hayden Valley this past fall
  11. A bud from the Valentine's Day Rose
  12. and now with the photo
  13. Chris Wick, thank you for mentioning my photo last week.
    I'm posting early tonight to honor a friend and a prolific pelican photographer. :) I met up with Bill Boyd a couple of times last year, including one outing to photograph pelicans at White Rock Lake in Dallas. I called him a few weeks ago, and when I found out he was packing to move to Austin, I told him I had to meet him one more time. Bill is one of the nicest people I know, and I'm sure he will soon have lots of photography friends in Austin.
  14. Working on portraits.
  15. A shot from 2004. Taken on a Lake Michigan beach, my wife holding some sort of shell.
  16. Good Photo's so far this week. Mine is just me trying HDR from a photo from last year.
  17. [​IMG]Greetings everyone. Mine is a winter scene in Longueuil Quebec. The attraction was the late afternoon light, the granular appearance of the snow and the brown shrubs in the distance. For what it is worth, I am dreaming about the D800.
  18. Happy Wednesday all..... Nice shots so far.....
    Have you ever felt you're being observed?????
  19. Good Wednesday all. This was taken at an orchid show I was draged to this weekend. Nice of them to provide a disinterested spouse and child bench.
  20. Good morning all.
    My photo from very early Monday morning.
    Have a nice week.
  21. Morning all.
    This is from where I work. Just a few of the myriad of satellite dishes that litter the complex. They do at least provide some coloured lighting to make them more interesting.
    Anybody out there?
  22. Happy Wednesday all. So many great pictures. There are many skilled photographers here. A couple of my favorites: Sasvata Chatterjee's dog, Bill ORourke's ducks and Bogdan Nicolescu's snowtrain. My picture this week is from January 2012.
  23. Good Morning cold here this week so tried something different with a flower shot,my Idea was to make a photo look like a watercolour so blew the whites in raw to destroy detail and aggressively used noise reduction to the same end opened into elements and finished of there ending with a slight vignette kept me out of trouble for a while have a good week and good shooting
  24. Rio de Janeiro, view from the Sugar Loaf. Sorry, bad connection.
  25. Must be too early forgot photo
  26. Testing out the new 50mm 1.8G , I happen to find at a not so far bestbuy, after looking for a while.
  27. Thanks for the mentions of my photo last week. Now, as the snow goes from our local hills.
  28. My son dressed as a ghost for a birthday party
  29. Mackinac Bridge in early spring around 8:00 pm.
  30. Greetings from the depths of northern Ontario.
    Like a solar eclipse, it is infrequent, of short duration and you must be in the right place to witness it...........Harry taking a nap.
  31. Good Morning Wednesday :)
    Last Sunday it was chilly cold here in New England, had an opportunity to shoot orchid show indoor for just photographers. It was very difficult to shoot inside due to different colors of lighting and busy background. Here is the one I like using Nikon D90 and Sigma 105mm EX lens with SB600 mounted on camera with diffuser.
  32. Happy Wednesday! I was taking pics of Indian Blanket flowers two Saturdays ago, when this Vesta Crescent decided to add a little more color to this one. D90/Sigma 150mm @ 1/1250, f/6.3, ISO 640. (Thank you Lisa E for last week's mention, and yes, that was a butterfly milkweed pod :)
  33. Mine is a picture that has been taken approximately 1 billion times and counting, but this is the first time it's been taken by me!
  34. Good Wednesday morning to all. Some great work already today. My shot today was taken a few weeks ago of Lexie during a walk in the park.
  35. Dusk on ice
  36. This busker plays the guitar and harmonica. Simultaneously.
    Nikon D90, Nikkor 50mm f1.4@f4 for 1/500 sec. ISO400
  37. Another pic from Huopanankoski, Central Finland. Over 20 degrees Celsius and little of sun.
  38. Great shots everyone!
  39. Well now that I'm fully awake let me try this one more time. :))
  40. Happy Valentines Day to all our ladies. I hope everyone gets to LOVE there loved ones today. I saved this one from a few weeks ago. I got to watch this couple as they worked hard building there nest 50' up in the top of a pine tree. One of them (I would have assumed it was the male) would fly off and return with a branch. Together they would work to get the branch just right. Then they would engage in some kind of romantic dance which would include locking there beaks and dancing back and forth 5 or 6 times. This was repeated over and over as I watched for an hour. Really felt like I was peeping into there bedroom. Love was in the air. Nikon D3x, Nikon 300 2.8, Nikon TC-20E III, 600mm, F/6.3, 160 sec, ISO 200
  41. By The Sea Shore

  44. Good morning everyone. Last week I made a move from Dallas to Austin, Texas to be closer to family. My first photo in my new city was taken at the Texas State Capitol.
  45. Dogs running by my favorite tree here in Milwaukee
  46. Lisa E...thanks for meeting me in Dallas a couple of weeks ago for my final pelican shoot at White Rock Lake. Haven't found any pelicans in Austin area, but there is lots of photo ops here.
  47. Image this week is from the Crestte Butte area in Colorado.
  48. Experimenting with exposures during the recent full moon
  49. Brrrr!
    The weather turned very cold for this time of year a few days ago in South Alabama, which caused me think back to August of last year. Although winter in Australia, the weather was beautiful. That is where I captured this photo.
    It's from the Cunningham Pier, Geelong, Victoria, Australia. The Cunningham Pier area is a photographers paradise. So many things to photograph. A thunderstorm had just passed and you can see the aftermath in the shot.
  50. Here is mine for the week. It's another, somewhat unusual, angle of a Christmas cactus flower. Hope you like it. Nikon D700 + nikon 105mm macro D.
  51. Matt Laur - sweeeet. Did you find a happy home for that fine glass of bourbon when you were done photographing it?
  52. There is no place better to shoot sports action photos at the Olympic Games. I've been to 16 Olympics and offer up a shot a closing ceremony that I caught with my Nkion300.

  53. My feeble try of a product shot of my bookmark. No flash, no nothing used.
  54. Gorgeous shots everyone . Thanks for commenting on my photo last week.
    A couple of weeks ago, I posted the monarch caterpillar and hoped to watch the metamorphosis. I did not find the chrysalis early enough to watch the entire process.
    I missed the actual emergence, but did get a shot of the newly emerged monarch drying its wings with the chrysalis next to it.
    Hope you enjoy
  55. Hmm, here is the photo...
  56. next try :)
  57. Rufous Hummingbird. D700, 300 mm.

  60. Hi all,
    This my contribution for this week.
    Nikon D300 and 16-85 mm VR @ 16 mm, f/5, 1/100, ISO 1600
  61. Wow. Snow. Amazing what 2 inches of it can do for a otherwise dull photograph
  62. Never had this much of a problum. Photographer yes, computer person not yet.
  63. Submitting a bit late today as I've been under the weather with the crud. So many great shots thus far. I attended a Valentine's event as a guest of my 80 year-old Mom at her church last Sunday evening and captured her with one of her best friends. That's my Mom on the left.
  64. I'm a bit in a hurry so I'll check the thread later to check your work.
    Mine is no more than a frame out of a test I did with tethered and timelapse shooting. It was actually nice to see an onion change into a plate of pasta :) Didn't bother to decorate it though (too hungry).
    D90 with Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 tethered to laptop.
  65. Submitting a bit late today as I've been under the weather with the crud. So many great shots thus far. I attended a Valentine's event as a guest of my 80 year-old Mom at her church last Sunday evening and captured her with one of her best friends. That's my Mom on the left.

  67. Great photographs again. Jeannean, another crisp, bright photo. Are there a lot of insects where you live?
    Joe Elrod: very crisp photo. Doug Santo, great hummingbird shot. Rick Dohme: wow!

  68. WOW, what a gallery this week! Amazing stuff. My contribution is another shot from my Woodbridge River series that I've been working on, Nikon D200, pretty sure 180mm and ISO 125. Happy Wednesday everybody.
  69. Harlequin drake and hen.
  70. just got in here is the photo that should have been on page three though the standard is so good this week that I will hid behind my keyboard this as mentioned before is a photo that is trying to be a watercolour have a good week and glad to see harry is taking the odd rest
  71. Wow, too many great photos today. Too many of you have the time on your hands for this, wish I did. Jeannean and
    Roberta D, the butterfly photos are nothing short of beautiful, great work. This is just some pansies still alive, and thought I'd get a shot of them before the inevitable comes.
  72. Happy Wednesday everyone! Great pictures as always. My favorites this week:
    Simon J's portrait (those eyes!)
    Jens's harbour
    Tor's portrait of his son
    I'm on leave this week, so have had lots of long dog walks with the children who are also on holiday. The snow has now gone, but there was still some lingering on the higher ground at the weekend. Here's another picture of my eldest daughter on one of our favorite walks........
  73. There has been some snow in the south east of the UK and as it fell on a Weekend it allowed everyone out to have fun. I took out my Nikon F and 35mm f/2.8 Nikkor-S lens combo. It was amazing to see the speed at which a fully functioning igloo was made.
  74. The new central library in Birmingham, reflected in the facade of Symphony Hall, from a couple of weeks back:
  75. This is my first post. I took this portrait at a birthday party.
  76. Jericho Beach, Vancouver
  77. Misty River Morning
  78. From the Rincon Classic Surf Competition last weekend. Surf was mushy, but every once in a while a nice wave would set up like a freight train and chug all the way down the bay. Here's a surfer from the pro heat with a ticket to ride.
  79. Jose - Have you been to the cathedral when Paul Winter does his Winter Solstice thing? One of my favorite shows on public radio.
  80. d90 and 40/2.8 micro nikkor[​IMG]

  83. d90 and 40/2.8 micro nikkor
  84. It is one too warm exposure...
  85. No, I haven't. I am usually in attendance at St. Patrick's Cathedral. I will definitely put it on my to do list for this Winter.
  86. First attempt at off camera flash.
    When kids get beyond a certain age, they stop smiling when the flash goes off. Next time, I use trickery ! Hopefully, I can get better with more practice.
  87. Nikon Buddies,
    Busy times! Enjoying lots of photos, especially those from Simon J, Ann O, Tor Egil B, Tim H, Jonathan P, and Joe R.
    One of my girls made tiramiso gifts, tonight, so I thought I'd share.

  89. Oops... I'm a day late... Anyway...
    My wife was sleeping late on Saturday, so it was fun-time for Liam and I. We were just rolling around on the living room floor and I decided that the light looked good for some pics. He agreed. :)
    Nikon D7000 - 85mm f1.8 @ f2.8 - window light.
    Thanks for looking!
