Nikon Wednesday 2017: #39

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Matt Laur, Oct 4, 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: This forum's moderators are allowing up to three Nikon Wednesday images per week, so share some work!

    Looking for a little bit of peace during a painful week, and hoping that none here were caught up in, or had loved ones who were, Sunday's events in Las Vegas. I try to keep current events out of the posts here, but of course we're all thinking about it. Dug back to some shots from a wedding earlier this year, to remind myself that in this country of hundreds of millions of people, there's much to happy about as life goes on. Here, a bride listens to her new husband's vows, and her father looks wistfully on. The ceremony was up against a huge bank of windows in the afternoon sun, so I just went all-out wedding-ish and let the light and the flare and glare do what it would to me. Let's see some normalcy and happiness, how about. Share some photos, folks, on this fine early fall Nikon Wednesday. wedding_father.jpg wedding_bride.jpg
  2. My sympathies, of course, to anyone affected by Sunday's events. I was lucky enough to have spent the week getting away from it all, and fortunately saw lots of good in humanity as people helped each other, and me, out with the wildlife. In the (contrived) spirit of being stronger together, here are some pictures of Molly's wolf pack in Hayden Valley, Yellowstone.


    Hmm. Having trouble with multiple attachments. I'll try multiple posts.
  3. Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make.

  4. The last two were crops of about half a frame, downsized to show the whole pack. (Incidentally, I've tried more sharpening, since my previous images here have tended to come out soft. Sorry if I've misjudged the amount.)

    This last one is 1:1 pixels, hence my thread about 700mm not being enough glass...


    (No, I don't know what the wolf on the right had against the rock, but it clearly looked at it funny.)

    Oh, I'd meant to say: all of these were with a D810 with a 200-500 + TC14E-II, at f/10-f/11 and at the long end. I'd expect a bit more definition from more expensive ways to get past 700mm.
