Discussion in 'Nikon' started by uplandlife, Jan 3, 2017.

  1. Important: please keep your image under 1000 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 allowing up to three images per week, so share some work!​
    Well! A new year, Nikon people. Hope everyone's holidays were happy and peaceful. We rang in New Year's Day with a nice pile of greens and a perfectly sizzled pile of leftover tenderloin bits from an earlier feast. It was just the meal to break in one of the gifts we bought ourselves: a new skillet. Not just any, though. Love to support smaller US-based artisans and businesses, and very happy to report that Smithey Ironworks in South Carolina makes a fantastic cast iron pan. Not in this shot is the highly polished cooking surface that behaves wonderfully and cleans up with no fuss. If you're a cast iron pan person (you know who you are!) check out Smithey's two early products (10" and 12" pans) - I'm really impressed. Not affiliated, just happy!

    Hope everyone's got some photos to share, whether or not cooking implements are involved. Let's see 'em!

  2. From this summer, when I was able to climb up beside the stage during a concert by the Cape Breton Old time Fiddlers. What an awesome experience

  3. A short trip to the Santa Barbara Marina hoping for some photogenic could cover. During processing I felt the color was distracting and chose to do a B&W conversion.

    I am though hadn't heard of Smithey's before. That's a beautiful pan.
    Happy New Year, Nikon fans!

  17. Happy New Year to all! While sitting at the dining room table for lunch on the second day of the new year, I looked out to see that we had a surprise visitor to the back yard ...

  24. Haven't been out lately. Minus 1 F this morning here in MN. The trails in the woods where I bike are icy right now from freezing rain last week. So, here's a couple shots from last night: granddaughter Iris (pink pants) playing with a neighbor girl Vivian.

  30. Out on a lunchtime walk with my new (for me) Micro-Nikkor AFS 105mm/2.8. Wow, is that thing sharp! (Even if you can't tell in this severely down-sized image.)

    All the best in this new year to you Matt, and all here at P.net.
    Here are a few from this afternoon.
    We had a brief respite from a serious snow storm so I sprang into action. These were taken 45 minutes apart.
    We didn't have any appointments scheduled for today so I'm just letting it pile up. Tomorrow will be a serious snow removal day. I will unleash the mighty Honda track machine and we will together do battle against Mother Nature, usually a failing cause.
     
  32. I did a lot of work putting up and tearing down toy trains to benefit several museums holiday events. This shot is from the B&O Museum in Baltimore testing out my newly acquired 14-24.

  33. Several day of rain have cleared with cold coming.
    00eIr0-567196784.jpg
     
  34. I think I found something interesting to shoot this week. I need to get a cable for my Pocket Wizard PlusX's so I can snap the shutter while the camera is in front of the shooter and I'm behind them in a safe position. The benefits of a dreary day... every once in a while you can catch the muzzle flash.

    Immediately as I was about to post this afternoon, our power went out. Not unusual given the conditions. So, six hours later, I'll try again...

    The sun interrupted the storm for less than 5 minutes.

    And one from an upper side window.
    These were all taken with a D800E and my ever-trusty AF-S 17-35mm. The reason my Sigma ART 35mm spends a lot of time in it's case.

  42. @Wade Roth - that's a great photo! A friend of mine once captured me shooting a handgun just about like yours. Only he was using a manual focus film camera. Quick reflexes. :)
     
  43. Happy New Year!

  44. Great shots to start the year off!

    Thanks, Patrick S. 10 fps helps a lot. I'd like to get one with the bullet just past the muzzle flash. I was having to much fun
    shooting the guns to shoot much with the camera though.

  47. Happy new year everyone. I've had a new year's cold (or some combination of ill, anyway) so I hope you'll forgive me defining "Wednesday" as "Sunday" for a week (otherwise I'll still be posting shots from my last Yellowstone trip when I'm back in Yellowstone...) My holiday had finally reached Yellowstone, and in the interests of editing, I'm going with the elements, starting with earth.
    You can't go to Yellowstone and not take a picture of a bison. This is the Yellowstone sub-species, known as the "not another" bison, the cause of many a "bison jam" in Yellowstone. (Not to be confused with a "bear jam", which is marmalade if you like Paddington and hunny if you like Pooh.) Maybe it's because I'm belatedly watching a Peter Pan holiday season pantomime on television (a comedy version), but I'm going to say that this picture is evidence that every time someone calls one a buffalo, a bison dies. (Don't worry, it's fine, it's just what our guide was insisting was the "dating season" and this is a scent thing.)

  48. "Earth" is supposed to mean "land animals" (if you think it's confusing and I should have mud pots here, it's not as dubious as how I'm distinguishing fire and water...)
    I have various shots of big-horned sheep, mountain goats (blown highlights every time - I must remember that next time I hire a D500) and mooses meeces mooce a moose, but it was this prong horn that had the decency to step out of the foliage and show an interest in a modelling career.
    00eJDB-567259484.jpg
     
  49. Interesting. It appears you actually have to turn javascript off to get strikeouts through the editing system. Learn something new every day...
    Finally, lots of bears and wolves! No, just kidding, we didn't see any (which, at least for the wolves, is why we're going back). Absent a big land animal, here's a small one, which Brits will either love or hate. And if anything sums up 2016, it's something that splits opinions.
