Nikon Wednesday 2017: #44

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Matt Laur, Nov 8, 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 Nikon Wednesday images per week, so share some work!

    Hello everyone and a good Nikon Wednesday to all. Today, it's a mere 1000-pixel-wide version of an image I'm working on that will be part of a client's 10x10' display backdrop at a trade show. The people producing the final physical display actually print at 300dpi, so to make this look good when it's ten feet wide, it was shot as a twelve-frame composite with a D810, and stitched together. That file is hundreds of MB, but it will print well. What's everyone else been up to? Share some photos! trailer_composite.jpg
     
  2. Last weekend was our "Bonfire night" celebration to commemorate Guido Fawkes thwarted attempt to blow up Parliament and King James.
    Here are a couple of shots of fireworks with the full moon. Both are straight single exposure shots - honest!

    And a landscape.

    All shot with a Coolpix P6000.

  3. While driving home last night I noticed that we were in for a good night of aurora borealis, so I fetched the camera and tripod.

  9. I was also at fireworks last weekend, but the weather report (incorrectly as it turned out) predicted rain, so I didn't take my camera. So here's what I was doing the week before instead...

  12. They are still flying these here in Uruguay. Very noisy making it hard to sneak up on any rapiñeros Huey.jpg
     
  13. More fireworks, this from last July...

  16. It'd dreary and Novembery here, so I haven't gotten out much. Stayed inside and played with macros instead. Trying out a Schneider Componon enlarging lens on a little French Gendarme figurine one of a pair I got back in about 1951. He's had a hard life.

  17. His partner has had an even harder life, though, I think. Here's the same lens reversed. In both cases, a bodged-up mount consisting of the lens, a piece of a broken microscope and a slightly turned down filter adapter, jammed into the flange from a broken zoom lens...

  18. A fly died in the bathtub, so I aimed another macro setup at that one. This a Compugraphic typesetting lens in a microscope adapter. Lousy depth of field, but easy to shoot freehand.

    I like the action, but the lighting is far from ideal, with back/side lighting at 12:03pm, almost right at noon time.
