Nikon Wednesday 2014: #1

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by uplandlife, Dec 31, 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: This forum's moderators are allowing up to three images per week, so share some work!​
    Happy New Year, and of course a Happy Nikon Wednesday to everyone. I just checked the Mayan calendar, and it looks like these two celebrated events won't coincide again for another 340 years.

    Just a simple memento from me: this is the last sunset of 2013, seen over the local horizon. Some impossibly persistent oak leaves are toughing it out until spring, and I'll take that as a queue for my own resolve. Hope everyone is in good company and travels safely tonight. Share some photos!

    A week ago, I walked by my local library and saw this new display outside. I immediately recognized that it must be segments of the Berlin Wall, as I have seen similar parts of the Berlin Wall at the Ronald Reagan Presidental Library before. We realized how tall it is and it must have been very difficult to scale it.
    Unfortunately, in this case the wall segments are protected by plastic cases such that there are serious problems with reflection. I ended up using a polarizer.
    Nikon Df with 18-35mm AF-S lens at 24mm, f5.6, 1/13 sec, ISO 100 and Nikon polarizer on tripod.
    Just in caes anybody would like to visit this location, I had the GPS on: 37°23'26" N 122°5'1" W
  27. Greetings from the depths of northern Ontario, and Happy New Year.
    We began 2014 with -37C. It appears a little creature took refuge from the cold under the weeping spruce in the front yard.
  28. Happy New Year everyone. Lovely photos this week, I particularly enjoyed Kyle's three.
    Here are some of low tide on a local beach
  29. Chalk ridges....

    These were taken in my driveway on Boxing Day afternoon. My first excursion outdoors with the D800E. After 5 weeks I am again mobile (slipped off a small cliff on a wet day...) and I am beginning to bond with the new guy although I keep missing the shutter button for some reason. I guess it has been repositioned from the D700 (I don't have one here to compare).
    It has snowed here everyday since November 24th except for three and with the exception of one 5C afternoon, it has been real cold. February cold. Unfortunately for my Queen, I haven't been able to even lift a snowshovel ;) even if she would let me.
    Happy New Year to you, Matt, and all members with wishes for peace and prosperity in 2014.

  35. After a long time... my entry for 1st Nikon Wednesday of 2014.
    Fashionista at Snow Tubing, taken with D7000 and 18-140mm VR.
  36. Happy New Year, all!
    Matt, I'll match you with the last sunrise of 2013.
  37. The new year was celebrated in a show at Senate Square in Helsinki.
  38. I had a good spot at the front of the stage (secured almost two hours before the broadcast) so I could get close-ups.
  39. Unfortunately the crowd of 20000 was so tightly packed that I could not get in position for the fireworks at midnight so I decided to try to make the most out of what I could photograph from where I was. Which was not so bad. ;-) Due to the televised broadcast, the stage lighting was very nice also for still photography.
  40. Greetings to all on the first day of the year :)
    This afternoon I decided I to take my camera and go for a walk. After leaving the house I then resolved my walk was going to be a lot shorter than originally planned and next time I'd check the temperature first.
    (also had some fun playing with split toning in lightroom)
  41. A Dickens of a New Year.
  42. Jake says hi and Happy New Year everyone!
  43. Coolpix S31 on the Rideau Canal, Ottawa. Canada.
  44. Happy 2014 to all! We've been pretty quiet today, and it's snowing, so I spent a little bit of time capturing our world on this new year's day. The snow was the biggest showoff so I'm sharing our buried flowerpots. Spring is less than three months away!
  45. Downtown a few days before Christmas.

  47. My mom wanted photos of her miniature nativity scene. So I did. Then I added Popcornthulhu. Mom thinks that piece of popcorn looks like an angel, so she didn't consider it blasphemy. I think it looks like Cthulhu. Only with butter and salt.
    Nikon D2H, 105/2.5 AI Nikkor, a bunch of LED candles, a Mini-Mag flashlight, and Eartha Kitty swatting at my carefully arrange figurines because I'd perched them atop her kitty tower.

    Popcornthulhu. Yeah, R'lyeh.
    Santa Popcornthulhu knows you've all been very naughty.
    Your punishment is listening to hours of tedious tales woe and dread about neckties and socks for presents.
  48. Mini Mags are awesome for shooting miniatures!
