Nikon Wednesday #52

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by lornesunley, Dec 26, 2012.

  1. I haven't seen the regular Nikon Wednesday thread yet ... so I am starting one
    This is taken out in the -25C Christmas day chill.
  2. The lone ornament on our plucky little official Charlie Brown Christmas tree. It's plucky. Not sad. Taken with my new Nikon V1 (thanks, dad!). I'm liking this quirky V1. It's chunky-funkiness is surpassed only by its impressively quick reflexes.
  3. Lamar Street Bridge in Austin, Texas.

    Lorne, thanks for starting the thread. I noticed overnight that Matt hadn't started a new thread yet. I am at my dad's house and was tired up talking to him this morning, so I hadn't started one.
    And since I am traveling, I have no access to PhotoShop to edit some images for this thread. I'll take care of that in a couple of days. In the mean time, I have glad to see several good images already.
    Important: please keep your image under 700 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: Our forum moderators are still allowing up to three images per week, so if you've got the photographic trifecta, use it!​
  5. Using the 24-85mm VR lens that came with the D600, this shot on an F100.
  6. [​IMG]
    D600 • ISO 6400 • Nikon 105/2.5 Ai • ƒ/2.5 • 1/80th
  7. We had a semi-white Christmas in North Central Texas.
  8. Here is mine for the week. Bubble macro. Enjoy.
  9. Medieval Church of Ulvila on the 25th.
  10. One from today's first bird outing, D7000 + Sigma 70-300mm lens.
  11. Sun was shining and the ice crystals made beautiful statues in cold weather (-25C). Pic taken w my new Nikon 1V1.
  12. Here is a shot of some frost covered thistles taken a few weeks ago.
  13. Our kids and granddaughter gathered with us for a holiday card photo yesterday. Happy New Year!
  14. Greetings from the depths of northern Ontario.
    A dog's nose is a testament to the evolutionary process. Harry is showing how it can be wet and covered in snow at -10C and still not freeze.
    They also retain cold very well as I discovered after emerging from a nice hot bath and bending over to clean out the tub. Next time I'll either close the bathroom door or get dressed first. I think the neighbours could hear me 4 doors down.
    Hope you are enjoying the Holidays.
  15. N/T
  16. Happy Wed. and Happy Holidays to all.
    We had a foggy Christmas eve, so I tried to get a shot showing 'then one Foggy Christmas Eve'. But all I could get was a foggy street light.
  17. Ooops! That 34-70 is supposed to be a 35-70 but of course you knew that.
    John R. I like your story. I bet you'll look behind you before cleaning out the tub when wearing nothing but your birthday suit.
  18. Anchored north of West Palm Beach last week heading home.
  19. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. Just a blue eyed babe. Nikon D3X. Nikon 80-200 2.8, 1/100 sec, f/2.8, ISO 400
  20. Apple pie cooling on the table before dinner Christmas day.
  21. Holy Yule Procrastination, Batman! Lorne, thank you for being Santa's helper and getting the thread off the ground while I got my wits together after the tail end of a marathon 48-hour e-commerce IT crush-a-thon ... which caused me to completely space Nikon Wednesday. My profound apologies to everyone. No, it wasn't too much eggnog.

    I would like to blame it, if possible, on this very stubborn seasonal subject ... the Yule Mule.
  22. Brand wise, this one is a bit of a hybrid. Originally I took the photo with a Pentax ZX50 (My first camera, which I still have). Recently, I was looking at some old contact sheets and decided to shoot the negatives with my Nikon D7000 and 60mm 2.8 afd macro. I loved the way it turned out. I'm a bit saddened by the streaks that I made from incorrect developing, but I think the image holds up. Suck it Instagram! I don't need your filters! I've got poor developing skills!
  23. This was taken from my back door this morning the temp was about -22c and the Moose was about 1/2 away taken with D90 and a 55-200 lens
  24. "Suck it Instagram! I don't need your filters! I've got poor developing skills!"​
    LOL! That's priceless.
    You'd better license that "Agitation surge marks" filter before someone else Instagrabs it. While you're at it, better license the dreaded "Oops, I fixed the film before developing it" blank negatives filter too. The classic darkroom newbie filter.
  25. A belated Merry Xmas. A collection of nutcrackers accumulated over past Xmases, photographed by candlelight, with an obligatory tree in the background.
    D700 + AF-S 24-70 @ 28mm, ISO200, 2s @ f/8

  28. Happy holidays everyone!
    Just family snaps for me this week. Here's one of the dog taking a break from social networking on Christmas Day...
  29. Belated Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays...

    Back on the Barge, sitting in the Caribbean. the only Torment is my shift is 12hrs and pretty much swallows all the daylight hours, so much to shoot here. I grab 5 min here & there only bonus is the light is generally good and there is no end of subject matter, just timing and a bit of change there!

    The caught my eye; Lorne (Squirrel), Bill, Patrick (geese), Markku (Another of Mother natures great effects). John & Chris dogs always deliver! Like 'em.

    Here's a lucky timing shot...
    D80 (70-300mm f/4-5.6G) @ 300mm, f/8 @ 1/400s, ISO 200

  30. Conn River with the F4
  31. Taken last Saturday. Not your typical holiday photo. I shot an extreme metal show. This is Gene Palubicki of the band Perdition Temple. The flash was held by my lovely assistant (my daughter) and bounced off the wall, fired by a PocketWizard.
  32. The Yellow Mountain, Anhui Province on Christmas Day.
  33. Happy New Year to all!
    This is straight from the camera...our 2012 Christmas tree and my daughter...
    Good to see you all!
