Nikon Wednesday 2018: #28

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Matt Laur, Jul 11, 2018.

  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!

    For me, this week, it's Wayback Wednesday once more. But I'll at least try to keep it feeling seasonal. Here's a local bullfrog that was hanging out on a bail of barley straw at the edge of a farmer's pond. Shot this one in marginal late day light with that dinosaur, the venerable D200. If you kept that camera at or under ISO 400, you could get decent work done!

    It's Nikon Wednesday - share some photos! bullfrog.jpg
    D200 at ISO 400 and 1/320th with a Nikon 70-200/2.8 at f/2.8 and 200mm.

  6. I'll follow the wayback scheme: image of a wayback car taken with a wayback lens on a now also wayback camera: D700 with leitax-modified Leica Apo-Telyt 180/3.4

    Same lens on an even older camera: D200, Black Canyon of the Gunnison

    Breaking with the wayback scheme - hot off the press: replaced my AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G with the Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD F017N (just because of Nikon's shortcomings of not having enough alphabet soup in the product's name)

  12. May I go for a different kind of historical? Tuesday was the 100th anniversary of the founding of the British Royal Air Force (RAF), so there was a fly-by of various aircraft. I expected to pick a quiet area near Windsor (where we only had the jets, not the Spitfires, Hurricanes and Lancasters that flew over central London), but actually there were several hundred people who chose exactly the same place. Complicated by being incredibly hot (this isn't especially out of focus, it's just heat haze - I checked my lens and camera when it had cooled down, and everything was fine) and a nearby field being on fire. Thank goodness for the 1000px limit.

    Here's a 1500 pixel crop to show the haze, but these are apparently the first public showing of three of the RAF's Lightning II F35s, so plane spotters - you're welcome. D850, 200-500, f/7.1, 1/1250s.

  13. Cropping less tightly so the haze is a bit less intrusive, Eurofighter Typhoons. These had been spelling out "100" earlier in the flight. Same settings.

  14. And finally the RAF display team, the Red Arrows (same settings). Not that we needed more smoke, especially if they'd been pumping this out all the way across London. Given the flight path, I can only assume all this caused chaos at Heathrow airport.


    I now pass the aircraft baton back to the usual suspects who go to air shows and, unlike me, know how to do this kind of thing. :)

  16. In retrospect, I suppose I must point out that the Lightning IIs are stealth jets. So the fact that I couldn't get a clear picture of them may have had less to do with heat haze and more to do with a cloaking device. :)
  17. Day late, always dollars short...
