Nikon Wednesday 2013: #25

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by uplandlife, Jun 18, 2013.

  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:http://www.photo.net/nikon-camera-forum/00W7km. This forum's moderators are still allowing up to three images per week, so share some work!​
    Happy Nikon Wednesday, all. Our local farmer's market is a never-ending supply of faces. We're fortunate in that the people running the recurring event invite musicians, chefs, and other interesting folks to keep the place lively. This three-piece was delivering some truly sublime jazz for a couple hours straight, and out in the sun. A labor of love, surely.

    Speaking of trios, I'm happy to see that once in a while we get a three-fer from some contributors to this thread each week. Keep it up!

    I went to this location to capture some test images with the new 18-35mm/f3.5-4.5 AF-S, and I brought the 14-24mm/f2.8 AF-S along for comparison. I captured this image at 14mm, f11 on the D800E. The glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly occupies across three stories.

    Happy almost-summer everyone:
    I love the sharpness of this nearly 1:1 shot taken with my newly acquired [but used] 300mm AF-S f/4 plus TC-14E. It was taken with the lens wide open, handheld, in my back yard.

  7. This past weekend, I returned to a favorite setting of four years ago. Wanted to do SOMETHING different this time while being true to the original. The time of day was right so I decided to go for a sunburst in the upper left corner of the frame. Composed the shot carefully, adjusted the f/stop and waited for the results.

  13. This past weekend we flew into Peoria, Illinois ...there last month for the Susan B Komen/Race For The Cure (Susan Komen's Hometown) ... got invited back by the locals for the 40th Annual 'Steamboat Classic' ... billed as "The World's Fastest 4 Miles" Runners in from all over the World. Left the hotel at 'zero dark thirty' with my dx body (D7000), and my FX lens bag...wake up, wake up. Here is an out-take from the finish ...Shadrack Kosgei with a run time of 18m5sec (about 4:30per mile!) ...Organizers set up on the Riverfront and gave away some 27 kegs of beer (cup at a time) to the runners and volunteers ... quite a party rolling by 9:30 am. This one, D7000/70-200.

  29. Here is another shot of Rigby (with Ina, his trainer), the dog who's learning to bowl to help publicize the annual "Bowl-4-Animal" Rescue fundraiser held every August here in the Detroit area.
    Since last time, Rigby has started using a ramp, which helps a lot with both aim and ball speed. He's very enthusiastic. After rolling his ball, he races up to the foul line to watch it hit the pins, then runs back to the ball return to see it come back. In between shots, he likes watching the other bowlers.

  32. Great stuff so far, especially Elliott's foliage and Miha's black & white series.
    I'm not a huge fan of the multiple posting thing, so here's just one from a family photo shoot over the weekend.

    Hope you enjoy

  46. On vacation in Jackson Hole this week. Spent an afternoon kayaking on the Snake River oxbows - calm water with wildlife sightings (moose, eagles, otters, pellicans and other waterfowl) frequent. This time, we had a surprise. We were drifting through a slough 10 to 15 feet from the shorelines when Karen said she saw a black bear. I readied the AW100 and as I drifted past, the bear raised his head ... not a black bear but one of the grizzly adolescents that are in the area. I captured a few images as the bear came to the water's edge to check us out. When the bear splashed the water, I splashed the water too - with a few power stroked of the paddle to get clear.

  51. Great shots everyone. I particularly liked Roberta's dragonflies, especially the third one.
    I managed to get out in the countryside with the dog on Saturday. It was one of those lovely days with sunshine, rapidly moving clouds and a warm breeze making the crops in the fields sway so they looked like water from a distance. A perfect chance to try a bit more HDR.......
    00bkuu-540879784.jpg
     
  52. and a second one......

  54. I slightly overfilled a demijohn and my homebrew beer frothed out of its airlock, resulting in what you see below.
    D800 + Tamron 90mm macro lens. Lit with a single off camera flash held above and slightly behind the subject, triggered using CLS from the camera popup.

  57. Here I am--a day late, but happy to see that the thread's not closed; I thought I was going to miss out. Budi, that's a precious photo. Mine for the week is a Hollyhock, backlighted.
    00bl4c-540894884.jpg
     
  58. Greetings from the depths of northern Ontario...or rather, northern Quebec.
    We were camping near Fort Temiscamingue. No cell or internet access. I didn't want to miss out on Nikon Wednesday. Better late than never.
    The Fort was a node in the Hudson's Bay Company trading network that stretched from Quebec City to the Northwest Territories. It is found at the 'narrows' of Lake Temiskaming. The Gov't of Canada has set up a display depicting life at the old fort.
    #1 The Voyageurs unloading/loading their canoes. They were massive freight canoes that had to be portaged many times on the trade route.

  59. #2 The Flagpole
    00bl8H-540898584.jpg
     
  60. #3 The principal reason for the trade route was beaver pelts. Beaver was a 'must have' for hats in 18th and 19th century Europe. This display shows a first nations person trading a stack of pelts for goods.
