    A good nocturnal Nikon Wednesday, everyone. It pretty much always is, when these threads are started. In keeping with that, here's a quick skyline shot from just a couple of hours ago, peering out over the Capital Beltway as it winds its way through Northern Virginia, past a recent-vintage office building with exterior lighting that may have been imported from Las Vegas. Had that shutter open for 30 seconds recently? Share a photo or two!

  6. Dieter, love the smiley face on that boat lil'toot. Not quite nocturnal, but end of day near sunset, trying to get a few landings into the near sunset at London's busy Heathrow on Sunday evening, with all the obstacles that that entails. Enjoying the freedom of mobilty that the older mirror lenses allow. The slight vignetting is not the lens, but due to the tight opening of the fences and gate which I have to poke the lenses through, not always giving a totally clear view. Here's a sample of my efforts.

  19. How about 6 seconds +/-. This was from fooling around during a lunar eclipse a few years ago

  20. West Rutland Vermont, it turns out, is something of a Mecca for international scuptors, owing to its long history in the marble business. Nowadays many work in metal instead. There's a sculpture park, which I'd never even realized. Not too many people represented yet, but there's a huge scrap metal locomotive done by a Chinese artist that certainly catches the eye.

  21. Here's an urban punk bird. One of the two species of songbirds that it's legal to shoot, this fat, garbage fed house sparrow is full of attitude.

  22. Of course, country birds can be pretty stroppy too. I'm not sure what makes this one so angry. Perhaps it looks forward to a lifetime of criticism for eating with his mouth full and farting at the table, and having to say "but I was brought up in a barn!"

  23. 30 sec..... it's been a while, I had to go back for a while to find a long nocturnal exposure like it, and stumbled across this one. The arc collapsed this new year during storm, rendering a fotogenic place I loved to go into a far more ordinary mess.

  25. Recently came back from AK where light made virtually impossible to do any nocturnal image making. Yet, on the mind of the young (week old) moose was:
    Yes, but does it smell like moose ?

  33. [​IMG]Great shots as usual. I attended a funeral yesterday and was asked to take a few images. This is an image taken inside the funeral complex where a small reception was held. It is the Mount Royal Cemetery Complex interior located on the highest Mountain in the city of Montreal. Remarkably it is a non-profit organization since 1852.

  37. Hi Folks -
    Just wondering why my image does not appear like the others. There is a hyperlink to it, but the image is not "live". What did I do incorrectly so I know for the future?
    Thanks,
    Rick

    Richard, I edited your post and brought your image in line. Usually such huge images without downsizing would totally dominate this page. That is why we have a limit.
    Please read this old post of mine for more info: http://www.photo.net/nikon-camera-forum/00W7km
     
  40. Thank you, Shun. My image was under the 300kb filesize, but I believe I forgot to adjust the dimensions.
