Nikon Wednesday 2017: #46

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Matt Laur, Nov 21, 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!

    I'm strongly resisting Thanksgiving food-prep photos on this fine Nikon Wednesday before Thanksgiving. But I suspect next week there will be some aftermath shots. Because that turkey always lasts at least a week. Hope everyone's with friends or family and enjoying a peaceful week as best they can. And making photographs.

    But this time around, it's just some quick shots from a session on site with a client. Was there to get some vehicle images made, but a client showed up to take delivery of a beautiful 40-foot motor coach, and get an introduction to this new rig.

  3. Association of Matt's phrase 'boys with their toys' inspired me to remember:


    and then I remembered this from the same day:

  5. And here is one more Toby fresh after grooming. 17_11_17_5722.jpg
  6. And here is Toby with the treasure he found in our backyard. D7100 Nikon 18-200 17_11_21_5796.jpg
  7. Sorry for the equipment identification error in the first two posts - it is D7100, of course.
  8. The Boys and their toys theme reminds me of the choices available to us. So this week I chose the same photo in colour and black and white - which do you prefer?


    Nikon D800E, AF-S 70-20/2.8 VRII

  10. Happy Thanksgiving, y'all, and Who Dat!

    All shot with d810 and a nearly 50 year old nikkor H 50/2

    Grandparents Day last week at Stuart Hall School...Aidan looking at the camera. Sometimes this new to me d810 amazes me...this is ISO 10 thousand.


    And this past weekend was the Gumbo Festival here in New Orleans, held at Armstrong Park--the old Congo Square.

    The contrast range is a touch shallow for B&W - the colour works very well.

  13. Yes. I think the band of fiery sunlight on the clouds backlighting the trees adds quite a lot. I like the monochrome one, but the colour one says more (partly about time of day) to me.

    Took the D850 and Sigma 35mm/1.4 Art to the the Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, and that overlooks the City Hall.

    San Francisco City Hall image: f2.8, 1/40 sec and iSO 3200

    Concert Hall image: f4, 1/125 sec and ISO 2000. This image has a bit more noise than I would like to see. Probably should have used f2.8 and maybe 1/60 sec instead, but then I would risk having some motion among the people.

    The dogs got me up very early yesterday, nearly dark, and outside a herd of Mule Deer, which I saw as shapes. I had the 28-300 on my D750, and got this shot. The orange patches are light reflected from the kitchen. Always amazing. The next two shots are in decent light, switched to the 80-400.

  18. Others may be having snow, and it's been windy and rainy today, but last Friday was a sunny autumnal day in my parts. I needed to get out of my catless house (Soda would have enjoyed sitting on the window in the sun, then jumping on me to show me how toasty her head had got), so here are some bright colours.

  19. It was a little gusty even on Friday - all these are D810, 24-120 f/4 + polariser, this one is at 1/20s and f/18 for some blur. I also fired up my drone (bought several months ago, I've been busy) and regretted standing in a field for half an hour in a T-shirt while it did a firmware update - but I can't really claim that was Nikon related.
