  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!

    Howdy fellow Nikon people and a good Wednesday to all. So, the holidays are upon us, and if you're an image-making-person, there's pretty much no escape from employing at least one or two bits of your work on social media, or in some cards, or to circulate by e-mail, or on behalf of a client because of the season. Here's a piece of shameless photoshopping that will have some business graphics/text added to it in another context. But 'tis what 'tis! So, 'fess up and share something you've dolled up for passing around this December. Or better yet: share some good photographs, and never mind all of that! toterhome_christmas.jpg
    D810 at ISO 1000 and 1/6th sec, with a Nikon 14-24/2.8 at f/5.6 and 20mm. And, a tripod. It was dark out!

  2. Good Wednesday, everybody. (It is still Tuesday here in California.) Here I am again with more pictures of our new Havanese puppy, Toby. This time, Toby has found an acorn in our backyard (which is not difficult), and proudly brought one indoors. 17_11_19_5733.jpg
  3. And here he is just looking into my D7100 17_11_19_5735.jpg
  4. And here is he posing with the acorn 17_11_19_5753.jpg

    Sandhill cranes in flight, Staten Island, California, Nikon D850 with 600mm lens @ f4, 1/800 sec, ISO 64

    Since I lived in the New York area for over a decade, when people told me to check out the sandhill cranes in Staten Island, I immediately thought about the borough in New York City. The Staten Island in California is in the Central Valley farm country, near Sacramento. It is just about as different from New York City as you can get.

  6. Tsypkin: cute pictures, but don't let Toby eat the acorn - they're not good for dogs.

    Lao Cai Province just south of Y Ty - unfortunately the farmers had finest the harvest early, which I understood a couple days later, as there has been several typhoons in northern and central Vietnam since September 17. An excuse to go there next year again -:)

  8. A common redpoll that I walked by a couple of weeks ago.

  20. two weeks ago I posted a couple of shots from previous Christmas cards I've done for daughter #1 and her brood of 5. The theme is Naughty or Nice or Who's Been Bad or Good.
    Here's the Bad and the Good for this year.

    Robbing the Whitney National Bank with Nerf guns is bad


    and seated posing even with a forced smile is the Good


    I made a mistake on the bottom photo...It was with my old nikkor H 50/2, but I had the non-CPU lens set for my 20/2.8 AI. I think it made the focus look soft on the faces, though I zoom live viewed focus on the plaid shirts. I think I like the effect but don't know why it should make a difference. Does the camera, d810, know the attributes of those old different lenses and compensates?
