    Hello Nikon people, and a good Wednesday to all. I'm crunching through a fair number of stills taken along side the mountain of video I shot at a recent event. The client is all about the video, but of course I can't stop from shooting photographs of stuff that catches my eye. In this case, the glorious hood ornament of a 1940's Cadillac. Had an eye for the details lately? Share!
  2. Beautiful Colorado Aspens near Telluride.
  3. Hi Pnet Nikon forum. Looking forward to seeing what you all have to share this week. Last week was wonderful as usual.
    Matt - always details. And that's lovely details :)
    Rich - that's just lovely :)

    This week I staying with my theme of late - horses. All I’ve been photographing.... I apologize to those who don’t like horses. This week it’s our boys again. I let them do a few moments of supervised play & this is what I got. I felt all these would look better in B&W so I converted them all to B&W.
    All shot with the D800 & the 24-70 AF-S f/2.8 G ED

    Sorry long time since I have been here. I have not had the opportunity to come around, so here is a photo from my latest trip to Myanmar:
  6. I was testing the 28mm f/3.5 PC-Nikkor at night and noticed the iris star patterns mirrored the fake windmill ice dispenser. This fellow in yellow walked into the shot and paused for a moment. Made a test shot more interesting.
    28mm f/3.5 PC-Nikkor on Fuji X-A1, ISO 200, 5 seconds at f/8 or f/11.
  7. Squirrel keeping an eye on me
  8. Erik, love your photo.
    My "eye for detail" is rather less sophisticated. I call it "along the tracks"...
  9. WW II War Birds on tour last week. Pictured is a P-51
  10. Taken in my garden a couple of days ago. Enjoy. Nikon Df w/ Voigtlander 28mm.
  11. In another thread, the Tamron 28-75/2.8 was suggested to me. I snatched up a used one from KEH; it arrived Friday. The weekend here in southwestern PA was beautiful so I had to try out my "new" lens. It's going to be a good lens for me as it's going to teach me a lot of things-and with no stabilization, hand-holding techniques will be at the top of the list! I think I'll keep the lens, yes?
  12. Lil Judd - you just keep right on posting those horse photos. Matt - love the opening shot! Chris, love the colors in your flowers (whose name is escaping me at the moment...)
  13. The spiral staircase inside of the Pemaquid Point Light at Pemaquid Neck Mid coast Maine.
  14. The beautiful bridge that crosses the Penobscot River from Bucksport Maine to Verona Island.
    The photo is looking from the Verona Island side.
  15. Scarecrows are everywhere in town. The best theme was this colonial scarecrow in front of the Historical Society's colonial house.
  16. This one is too realistic ... it will keep some of the kids off his porch next Friday.
  17. The Pemaquid point light, Pemaquid Neck Mid coast Maine.
  18. Fall color.
  19. Hey Matt, found one just like it. In a car museum though, so access and hence the freedom to compose were severely limited.
  20. Here are a couple of shots from walking around Manila (D800 with 28-300, cropped square).
  21. Ball drilling at Aleta Sill's Bowling World. I struggled at first to eliminate the reflections but finally decided they made the shot more interesting.
  22. AT-6 Warbird. This is a WWII era flight trainer in Dallas. For $345 you can take a short demo ride.
  23. Train pulling into the station, Madison SD.
    D5100, Nikon 17-55mm f2.8, SB-900.
    Kent in SD
  24. Renee Shipley - Thanks for the complement on my flowers. BTW they are called a dahlia.
  25. Took a trip through Green Bay and into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan
  26. A picture of some Yooper colors
  27. Let's see if anybody can figure out what this is . Reminds me of Steam Punk for some reason
  28. The Champlain Bridge was blown up and replaced, but they left a memorial.
  29. Last Saturday at MoonFest, downtown West Palm Beach, I decide to shoot without flash with a D7100 and a 35mm 1.8 DX. It was my first adventure shooting at high ISO and results where surprising good, for a beginner. Here are some samples each with different light conditions. Just a little crop and adjustments on Capture NX-D.

  30. Not much digital activity this week, I`m having more fun at the darkroom. Below is a frame of a TX roll taken many years ago.
  31. Speaking of details, we're heading into "stick season" here....
  32. One more
  33. and another one ...
  34. Dennis, it should be a locomotive. I`d be surprised if it is not... :)
  35. The old bridge had crumbling piers. Let's hope they got this one right.
  36. Yep Jose you got it right
  37. Another fan of the hood ornament.
  38. Our daughter has recently started crawling, so we had to put her in jail.
  39. Last night the Allman Brothers Band played their final show. They finished after midnight, on the 43rd anniversary of Duane's death.
  40. Healey Front End
  41. Might be a "Franklin?"
  42. One more -
  43. Up here in Minnesota the last week we had unseasonably warm weather. The outdoor flowers were still blooming due to lack of frost at night. My wife picked "the last rose" of the season a couple days ago.
  44. Top view
  45. The fuschias are still blooming on the porch too.
  46. I don't usually come around late in the thread to add more, but in keeping with the you-can-post-three spirit of things, and because I'm suddenly fascinated by vintage Cadillac hood ornaments, here are two more from the same shoot. If I could have spent all day on just a couple of them, brought in lights, and bought their original sculptor(s) a beer, I would have.
  47. And the '53 El Dorado in a fantastic turquoise pant job. I'm not a car nut, but these things were just works of art.
  48. Well you've encouraged me to come back too Matt, I'm a fan of old hood ornaments for their work of art as well.
  49. Another

    This one was taken in the visitor centre at Algonquin Provincial Park.
    Here are the details:
    D800E, AF-S 17-35mm at f/4, 1/60, ISO 100 and onboard flash.
  51. In our office, Hood Ornaments are the marketing people. As in - "Can you go to dinner with the client?" "No, send the Hood Ornament." One more from me too. Gas cap this time. Likely from a Cobra.
  52. This afternoon, mountain light, north Wales style
  53. Model A hood ornament....
  54. Night fall on a small Greek fishing village...Cheers!
  55. From our grand daughter's school Halloween party, last Thursday
  56. Jon Eckman I could be wrong but that flying Goddess hood ornament looks like one from a 1930's Packard.
    And Mitchell I think that one of the swan is also from a Packard, 1950 era. ??
  57. Bit of street shooting last week.
  58. Dennis inside a steam locomotive????
    Renee - thank you so very much & so I will. And I would say the lens is a keeper :)
  59. Waves.
  60. Yet another Packard hood ornament.
  61. Lovely shots everyone.
    A quiet week for me photographically, so here's one from a couple of weeks ago.
    It was taken at the mouth of the Cuckmere river in East Sussex, UK. The folk on the beach were shooting what looked like either a Bollywood movie or a pop video.
    Happy Wednesday :)
  62. Some really great B&W shots this week - and far too many radiator caps!
    Not a hood ornament, but part of a car. Taken using a 50mm f/1.2 Ai-S Nikkor at full aperture.
  63. Chris Speaker - dahlia!! Thank you! I knew it started with a "D" so all day at work I was trying to think of every "D" word I knew!!
    Wow-I had no idea cars had hood ornaments like that. So glad I got to see them through you all.
  64. Oh, and I forgot to mention John P - I love your staircase shot. I had to study it to determine whether I was looking up the stairs, or down...
  65. [​IMG] Mine is a reflection on the hood of a car in a parking lot.
  66. Hi Renee,
    That was looking up. I probably should have mentioned that in the description.
    Thanks for the compliment.
  67. Bogdan: the dunes shot is just wonderful.
