    Hello Nikon folk. A good Wednesday to everyone. Was just sifting through a folder of architectural detail material, including several shots documenting the stone and cast metal elements used in this recently installed piece in a memorial garden. There are other, cheerier shots and some that place it visually in context, but this one had a particular role in recording design features. Share what you shot, please!
  2. Well, not to seem too eager, but as I just happen to be here, I'll add one.
    I've been using my old 35/2.8 PC manual lens as a normal length on the D3200, figuring if you're going to go manual and no meter, it might as well be preset too. It is very sharp when carefully focused, but I have not gotten adept at doing it fast on that teeny tiny screen. This one came out not badly, though.

  27. Sam I am.
  28. We spent last Sunday watching the USRowing Masters National Championships in Grand Rapids where a friend competed (and won) in the 70 year old category. I have never attended a rowing regatta and the activity on the shore amazed me. The various rowing clubs arrived with trailers carrying 20+ boats each along with with dozens of competitors. The process of preparing, launching and landing the boats was facilitated by the host club volunteers so what could have been chaos ran like clockwork. There was a steady queue of boats and sweeps carried to the launching docks and launched, with the reverse process on the takeout dock. Traffic wardens stopped pedestrians, bikes, and carts to let the boats cross paths so the competitors could get out on the water. Races were started every 4 minutes with up to 6 lanes used so there were probably 60+ launching and landings per hour throughout the day. Congratulations to all the rowers who participated in this regatta and theWest Michigan Sports Commission and Grand Rapids Rowing Association who hosted the event.
  29. These ladies just won their race.
  30. A lot of gear coming and going to the docks.
  31. Happy Wednesday everyone. Hamish and Rick, I loved your pictures this week.
    My first picture this week is our washing line......
    I met this Cyberman at the Dr Who Experience in Cardiff. Well worth a visit if you are UK based.......
    Lastly, another one of a kitten. They are now gradually starting to explore the garden - all senses maxed out and ready to run back indoors at a moment's notice.......
  32. There are some really nice photos here already. Tony, your island coastline shot knocks it out of the park! I just bought a D3300 kit, and have been working with the in-camera raw processing options. Here's a view from our back yard over a maturing cornfield in the afternoon. B&W, Yellow filter effect, Sepia +2.

  37. Three favorites.
  38. Last week I dug out my old 28-80 G lens that I got with my very first Nikon, an F65, many years ago. It's a slow, variable aperture kit lens that's made almost entirely of plastic. However, if there is sufficient light to stop down a stop or two, it's capable of producing some nice images.

  46. Happy wednesday!
    scratched Ai-Nikkor 400/3.5 IF-ED at f/4, D3s, cropped
  47. I always love these red British phone booths, and there were 4 of them in a row. I realized I was in the right place at the right time when two lovely children began to play with the phone booths, and a passerby, in perfect posture, looked on.
  48. Shot of my (mostly) Boxer on our deck. She always keeps an eye on me when I'm out in the yard.
  49. John P. of Ashland. I live in Amish country in Perry County. I've taken several photos of the Amish around here (at farm equipment auctions, traveling down our State Route, etc.). I always end up deleting them from my camera due to the Amish aversion to having their photos taken. Did you get permission to take the pic of the Amish boy? Just asking.....trying to resolve my internal moral dilemma regarding pictures of the Amish. Especially with a face showing.
    Now to another dilemma. We own a just about 100% pure white Australian Cattle Dog. 100% purebred. AKC registered. One of our Blue Heeler studs is in the blood line. We have 3 adult Blue Heelers, 2 juvenile Blue Heelers, 1 juvenile Red Heeler, and the latest addition is a White(????) Heeler??????
  50. And another of White Dog. Prior photo was D300 with 70-200 f/2.8. So used to having the 17-55 f/2.8 mounted.
  51. [​IMG]Taken today in the Laval nature center - probably Grampa and Grandson.
  52. I'll throw in one more from my recent "fun with old lenses" exercise. I bought an ancient pre-AI 28/3.5 lens a couple of years ago for $20, even though I didn't need it and never cared much for the length, just because it's a Nikon, and well, you know, Nikon pixies live inside it. Come the DX digital age, and suddenly its edge softness cannot be seen, but its ability to shoot practically straight into the sun can.
    The picture itself isn't interesting, but I think the lens might be!
