  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: This forum's moderators are allowing up to three Nikon Wednesday images per week, so share some work!

    It's been a while since the last one, so it's time for a Wayback Wednesday. Here's a helpful German Shorthaired Pointer happy retrieving a duck from a Potomac marsh. Good boy!

    No need to go back in time, Nikon Wednesday folks ... but when we do, it's always interesting to see what people come up with. Share some photos! This one was shot with a D300 and a 70-200/2.8. duck_retrieve.jpg

    Mexican dance, Nikon D5 with 70-200mm/f4 AF-S VR @ 102mm, f5.6, 1/1000 sec and ISO 360. I captured this image at 3pm. The sunlight was still very harsh.

    70-200mm/f4 AF-S VR @ 70mm, f8, 1/1000 sec and ISO 220. I used f8 to gain a bit more depth of field.

  8. Back to 2008. Wynnie talks to Papa via Skype reducing the 565km that separated them to about a meter and a half. They would chat back and forth for 10-20min. Here Wynnie is telling Papa what she found in the Canadian Tire catalogue. Sadly, both Wynnie and my dad are both gone; but, thanks to the D80 and a 18-200mm lens, I can go back and see them together again. Wynnie talks to Papa on Skype.jpg
  9. A follow up to last week's shot of my magnificent amaryllis flowers. 3 days later and they were in the sad state below.
  10. Helsinki Samba Carnaval on Saturday. It is common that once I choose a spot on the edge of the sidewalk, people pile up in front of me, on the road. Sometimes they get moved aside by the security, this time they were not, and so I did some cloudy samba photos through gaps in the crowd. ;) D5, 105/1.4 at f/1.4, 1/2000s, ISO 100.
  11. Batteria. D5, 70-200/2.8 FL, 72mm, f/2.8, 1/800s, ISO 280.

  12. Soap bubbles. D5, 70-200/2.8 FL, f/2.8, 70mm, 1/800s, ISO 640.

  13. Not going back too far, but cleaning up the desktop a little, we have a rock whose grain struck me as being nicely matched to the lake behind it. Usual error on loading, will see if it goes in on edit.....
  14. Too late to edit, as I had to change computers. This site is utterly unusable now on Vista. Now a try with Win 10....

    I haven't participated for a while, but with a learning curve on some new equipment I may try for awhile to keep up!
    Great Salt Lake images, a friend was in town and we went out to see the lake. It was gusting up to 70mph winds, and the brine flies were everywhere!
