    Happy Wednesday, Nikonistas, and here's hoping everyone - here in the States, anyway - is going to have a peaceful and happy Thanksgiving day this week (or, "Canon Thursday," as it's now called). Personally, I'm thankful for how well something turned out just the other morning. Despite every fiber of my being warning me not to do it, I got talked into photographing an actual human baby. We only had a half an hour or so, starting at 7:00AM... and it was a gray, misting, dark and somber morning... and of course Mom wanted Baby in the autumn leaves. And yet, it all actually worked out. I was having some fun dragging the shutter to capture some leaf movement, and the baby was glad to oblige. Mom's happy, the baby's happy, and thus, I'm happy (and relieved - whew!). Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Hello Nikon Users...I discovered an artist at White Rock Lake in Dallas, Texas.
  4. A Boy And His Dog...
    Happy Thanksgiving!
  5. My kiddos and my attachment, oops ;)
  6. Happy Wednesday, everyone! Here's my pic for this week.
  7. Hello Everybody,
    thank you very much for the comments on my photo last week.
    This week my client from Sunday photo shoot.
    Taken with Nikon D700, 24-70 mm, f/2.8@ISO 200, f/4.5, 1/200s
    Have a lovely week.
  8. Nikon D50, 18-20mm Nikkor Zoom
  9. Happy Wednesday to everyone. Hope everybody has an enjoyable and safe Thanksgiving holiday.
    I've been laboriously scanning and post processing some old negatives recently, since work and school have been keeping me pretty well occupied during the daylight hours. This is a shot from a shoot back in 2005 or so at an old derelict creamery building back in my hometown of Starkville, MS. There was a lot of interesting looking equipment left there to rust. The building was torn down to make way for some condos about 2 weeks after I took these pictures. The condos never came to fruition, by the way.

  11. Hi all,
    it's been quite some time since I participated in the Wednesday thread, but had a chance to do so this week. This is a macro shot of a hand-blown glass globe my wife had placed on the dining room table. I was intrigued by the bubbles and the deep blue colors. No saturation was added - you're seeing what the camera sensor recorded.

    Six! This ball was hit out of the park, the second of two consecutive sixes. To have a batsman hit a six in cricket is like having a batter in baseball hit a home run – it rarely brings a smile to the bowler (cricket) or pitcher (baseball) but it does excite the crowd.
    Camera: Nikon D300
    Lens: AF-S VR II Zoom-Nikkor 70-200 mm f/2.8G IF-ED + TC-20E III
    Settings: 400 mm, 1/500 sec, f/5.6 and ISO 200 (AP, monopod, UV filter)
  13. Happy Wednesday, everyone!
    A couple of days ago I took my D90 and Nikkor 70-200 mm and went to the Asilomar Beach planning to photograph dogs -- usually there are many of them in late afternoon. I brought home no decent dog pictures; instead, I tried to photograph a rather spectacular sunset.
  14. It's getting to be that time of year

    Nikon D700 with 24-120mm/f4 AF-S VR lens @ 48mm, f4, 1/30, and ISO 400. SB-800 flash bounced off the ceiling.
  16. Greetings all - some great images today, I cannot wait to see the rest!
    This one comes from last Wednesday -a view from Suite Level at the XCel Energy Center in St. Paul Minnesota. With some 16,000 fans looking on as the Anaheim Ducks took on the Minnesota Wild. The Wild won in OT.
  17. I was up in Idaho this week with a Labrador looking for pheasants in the corn. I borrowed a friend's D300 to take this photo of him coursing through the corn.
  18. Hello everyone...

    I took this photo at the London Jazz Festival on Saturday. It's held every year for two weeks and it's a good opportunity to listen to some established acts like Herbie Hancock and also a few up and coming ones like Arun Ghosh Sextet. This is a photo from the later's performance on Saturday.

  19. This paragliding shot was taken in Goa, India on a sunny day in a beach.
  20. Here's one taken a few years ago in Yokohama, Japan, aboard the 1930 motor ship HIKAWA MARU, berthed in permanent retirement since 1960. Taken on a rainy November day with my Nikon D80 & Nikon 18-70mm DX AF-S ED Zoom lens, ISO 400. Processed in NX2 with corrections to white balance and exposure.
  21. Central Park, last year.
    Best regards.

  24. Some pretty good light and unusually clear view of the Santa Barbara back country, specifically, the San Rafael Mountains viewed from near San Marcos Pass.

  26. great photos, everyone to begin Thanksgiving eve.
  27. Happy Thanksgiving!
    My contri was taken during a moto-cross race past sunday, a cloudy, windy, cold day.
  28. Hello All.........Happy Thanksgiving!
    Tx to Doug Rice for commenting my pix last week...
    That shot of Central Park is really nice Aguinaldo...
    Mine this week is of my son taking a nap....
  29. This past Saturday marked the grand finale of the youth [American] football season in Northern Virginia. The so-called "MetroBowl" pits elite teams from Maryland (home of our esteemed moderator) against teams from Northern VA for bragging rights. Our club team in this contest gave a textbook demonstration of speed overcoming size.
    D700 + AF-S 200-400 @ 280mm, ISO400, 1/3200s @ f/4
  30. This bridge connects a house with their land on the other side of the river. It's on my route to work. For the past few years, they've been lighting it for the holiday season. Yesterday, I borrowed a tripod from work and waited for them to turn it on.
  31. Happy Thanksgiving to all those who celebrate. We have a family reunion dinner of sorts with all my wife's 75 relatives at a park every year. This past Sunday a couple of moms dressed there little girls in thanksgiving outfits. This one was so cute with her turkey dress and turkey hair bow. Thanks for your kind comments and I'm off to the east coast of Fl. for the weekend. That means 2 days of great beach sunrises and sunsets.Nikon D3, Nikon 80-200 2.8, 1/100 sec f/3.5, 200mm, ISO 800, no flash
  32. Well, Matt left the side door open, so a crusty old Canonite wandered in here by accident (read - on purpose). Terrific photos, folks! Very nice work!!
    And Matt, just out of curiosity, when you were shooting the baby pics, did you catch yourself saying, "Sit...stay"? ;-)

  35. My son and daughter-in-law at their wedding a couple of weeks ago. The family cats join in the fun through the magic of Photoshop.
    D700, ISO 2000, 24-70 @ 39mm, 1/160 @ f/4.
  36. Our Milwaukee flickr group had our walk last Saturday and we explored an old cemetery in the city.
  37. Mark, you interloper! ... despite my instincts, I didn't have to use dog handling commands on that baby because her mom, who's trained their family beagle (if one can train a beagle) was already doing it for me. Baby and dog respond as a team. Something tells me it will stop working once that girl's a teenager.

    A nice Wednesday worth of Nikonery so far, everyone!
  38. Hi folks, I went out on a very cloudy day to try my new Tokina 11-16mm. To say the least, it is very wide.
  39. Good Morning Wednesday :)
    My submission this week is from past Saturday when I went to Portland Light house with my friends early in the morning. It was cold, obviously in north east winter has started but good thing is not seen snow yet :)
    Shot this picture with Nikon D90 and Tamron 17-50mm
    Happy Thanksgiving to All
  40. My pic this week was taken at a local sand sculpting competition in Treasure Island Florida. Pretty amazing what these people can do with a pile of sand and a few days work.
  41. Happy Wednesday and Thanksgiving tomorrow to those in the US! My photo is a sleeping moth on a dewy morning. D90/Sigma 150mm @ 1/80, f/8, ISO 200.
  42. @ Matt - so when I didn't see a picture with dogs or guns, I got vertigo and fell out of my chair ;)
  43. i am fascinated by this place, which in fact is just a big hole in the ground. in early morning, however, as fog moves along the river in the distance and the sun starts to peek over the treeline, it creates a lovely vista. this photo doesn't do it justice, but at least it's an attempt.
  44. Happy Thanksgiving to all. My this week was taken with Nikon D300 with a Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 lens. Thanks for looking....
  45. D90, ISO 400, 1/800 @ f/4
  46. Nikon F90X with 50mm f1.8 AFS-D lens. Fuji 400 H Pro film.
  47. As always a pleasure to watch the great work here on Wednesdays. Especially those among you that take the effort of developing and scanning film!!!
    My contribution: a shot while wondering around the World Heritage Site of the Royal Palace in Sintra, Portugal. A photographer flying around numerous times around the palace. I think the guy pointing was thinking the same thing as me. Get lost!
    D700, Tokina 28-80 AT-X Pro F2.8 1/500 F80 ISO200.
  48. Organ Pipes, St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral San Diego. D700, 24mm. For Paul Beavin, thank you for your comment.
  49. Nothing like homemade apple cake. Not my best but interesting though. Nikon D700 + Nikon 70-200mm f2.8. Enjoy and happy wednesday.
  50. Jeannean, nice picture. I'm an ignoramus when it comes to insects, though. How does one ascertain that a moth is sleeping? Snoring? Tiny pajamas?
  51. Good Morning to everyone and a Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrate it.
    My shot is of a lonely cucumber beetle hanging to a blade of grass in the wind.
  52. The "boss" of the lake at Nymphenburg, Munich, rushes against a competing male. Last Saturday, D700, 135 f2 AF DC, 1/2000 f5.6 @200 ISO
  53. Went to a small waterfall over the weekend. d90 + 16-85.
  54. Hi Jeannean, I think you have a bogus yucca moth , nice shot.
  55. Happy Wednesday all.
    Gaudi of Barcelona.
  56. This is a Navy memorial service at Arlington National Cemetery earlier this month.
    Nikon D300s with 70-200mm at 155mm and f6.3, ISO 800
  57. Here is a pic from a walk in the woods. Nice gray skies.
  58. Oregon Coast Last July, 2010. Nikon D300, 70-300 VR
  59. Hi there, my photo was taken over the weekend, I was practising my skills and new ideas when the kids decided to do their own make up and insisted in being part of the photo shoot.
    My two lovely models..
  60. Kent, the fluffy white hotel robe is the give away. I don't know if they actually call it sleeping, but they are resting and not moving until it warms up, and since it was early morning, I prefer to call it sleeping because I should have been sleeping instead of looking for bugs. ;-)
    Roberta, I got an Oregon Cycnia id, but you know these bugs...a lot look similar to each other.
  61. Hello, Fellow Nikonians ! Last Sunday I went for a walk to the coast of Lisbon, near Cascais, to a place called "Boca do Inferno" (Hell's Mouth) and took a picture of these amateur fishermen with both my digital and analogic Nikons. Here is the digital version. The analogic version, in b&w, may be next week.
    Have a good photo week !
  62. As always, a lot of great shots. Favorites so far this week:
    Dieter Schaefer
    Hamish Gray
    Peter Simpson
    Roberta Davidson
    Mine is a shot of the Olde Kerk, in Amsterdam. Conveniently located beside the Red Light District.
  63. I always look forward to Wednesday to see what people have been shooting. My contribution is a portrait I took at a lighting workshop last weekend.
  64. Don Harper- Fantastic image...
  65. Jeannean, thanks for the explanation.
  66. Over 600 flags collected from the community were retired recently by members of Boy Scout Troop 136 in Grove City, Ohio as part of an Eagle Scout project.
  67. Happy Thanksgiving to all. I am on vacation in the Chicago, Illinois and did not have a photo for today, so I used this corner of my Sister's house to try out some lighting setups that I have learned lately.
    I used my pop up flash to trigger 2 off camera flashes, 1 sb-600 and 1 sb-900.
    I also do not have my computer so I wasn't able to do anything in Photoshop, so this is right out of the camera, except for resizing to 700.
    All photos so far are absolutely spectacular.
    Again wishing all a wonderful holiday.
    phil b
  68. Doug Santo--thank you so much!!
    Absolutely beautiful!!
    I'd love to hear that trumpet...
    Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving to all...
  69. We went for a walk this weekend on our monthly gathering with a local photography group. I usually take only one lens with me, and now it was the turn of the 12-24 mm, on my D90.
    This guy joined us as if it were our guide through the whole visit of the town.
  70. Hi Everyone! Great portraits in this week's thread!
    Last Friday I was teaching some kids the very basics of photography (read: everything I know :) ) in a workshop at a local school, and one of the kids had this neat concept in his mind. His shots of this were better than mine, and since I can't post his photo, here's my grab shot of his idea.
  71. taken in the studio, black background, umbrellas on left and right
  72. shot of my wife. Lovely shots everyone.
  73. Nikon D80 18-135 kit lens, manual exposure. I love the blue of the sky in the upper left corner :D
    Naked tree
  74. Taken about two weeks ago in Noto Antica, a bit of landscape that worked much better in black & white than I expected, at least worked better for me :)
    Nikon F65, AF-D 35 f/2, Kodak T400CN
  75. Great pics everyone.
    Mine was taken yesterday at Rye Harbour (again). I'm lucky enough to manage the guys down there, so I get to visit quite often.
    This one was taken with the aid of a gorillapod.
  76. Out for a hike and came across these old toys, made me think of a toy graveyard. Where do toys go once they are no longer used? Anyhow Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it.
  77. Here is one of the hundreds of varieties of plants at the International Rose Test Garden, Portland, Oregon. Sorry, I forgot to write down the name of this one, which I shot in August.
  78. Blackwater Falls, WV, Nov. 13, 2010, Nikon D80, 16-85vr lens, polarizer
  79. Nikon F100, Nikkor 105mm F2.8 AF/D Macro, Fuji Velvia 50.
  80. I was playing with my new D7000 and produced this picture. I don't know exactly why, but I think it's kinda neat. 50mm F1.8 lens, F13@4s, SB600 off camera.
  81. Great pics one and all, fellow Nikonians!!! My pic is from the Dupont Farmers' Market, Washington, DC, this past Sunday.

  83. Wet cobblestones, first days of christmas decorations
  84. Great stuff this week. My contribution was taken earlier this year from my backyard.
  85. Rick and Benjamin, thank you so much !
  86. Aguinaldo, by far my favorite. Pic rocks.
  87. Richard Lanthier, thx for mentioning my photo last week. [​IMG] D200, 18-70, Newport Beach, CA
  88. Benjamin -- many thanks
  89. Thank you Pascal Burel (congrats for your lovely son) and Barry Fisher (I love your candid shot too) for mentioning my pic.
    My favorites are Dieter Schaefer´s landscape (beautiful light) and Bogdan Nicolescu backlit job scene (nice mood).
    best regards
  90. Here is one for this WednesdayPic :)
  91. Two pics that catched my attention this week... Dieter Schaefer`s interesting, overcharged and plenty of textures landscape and Hammish Gray´s group portrait that emanates friendliness; both are pretty simple but very beautiful to my liking.
    I also found Adam Zyto inspiring (I`d say it`s a classic shot), Wayne Wrights (I want to shoot one like yours), Jens Frederiksen (it`s easy to recognize La Pedrera in your pic... ;), José Arnaud dizzy perspective, Karissa Walker`s model expression (and maybe that classic look?), Barry Fisher`s beatiful everything...
  92. Late to the party but let us push it over 100 posts :). Actually just got my slide films back from a lab. Images look good on slides (I do learn something on my digital) but definitely not so nice after scanning and on the screen. This one is a snap while attending my little girl on the tour train at a local zoo.
  93. Picture taken in LoroPark, Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife.
  94. Sacramento Theatre of Lights. Father Christmas enjoying the light show. It's a good idea to look behind you. D700, 70-200, SB900. My first watermark. Refused to use one til I thought the work was good enough and not just a gwc- guy with a camera. Techniques compliments of the Denis Reggie/ Joe Buissink workshop last week in Atlanta. Thanks, guys. It was an amazing workshop.
  95. Photobucket host site had been mucking about with the website and people were unable to copy/paste the URLs for the last few days, so here I am after they seem to have sorted it out. Landing into sun, I hope this crew were wearing good Raybans. Pity the aerial mast wasn't more cooperative. D700, iso 1000, 85mm, 1/1250, f/25[​IMG]
  96. Jose and Rick, Thank you very much for your comments.
    My two picks for the week are Dieter's landscape and Roberta's lonely beetle.
