    A happy Wednesday to you, Nikon people. Winter's still toying with us here in the Mid-Atlantic area, and this week I stayed inside to get caught up on some web content projects. Tuesday evening, it was a quick go at using studio light to produce a morning sunlight feel for a product shot. A spot of tea, anyone? It's loose English Breakfast from Twinnings and a high-tech, but devilishly reflective gold-plated infusing widget. Used your Nikon gear to shoot something that chases away the February chill? Share a photo!
  2. Bottles
    D700 and 300/f4.0 AF-S @ f7.1, studio lights.
    ETA: First!!!!!!!
  3. Dallas had snow last week...more expected tonight.
  4. Still cold here, went back to the Conservatory to take indoor flower pictures
  5. Just playing with some flash photos.
  6. [​IMG]
    but mom!
  7. The truck is on blocks and as you can see it sits where moisture drips on the windshield. I converted the shot to B&W and then painted in the Budweiser sign. I didn't find out until later that the sign is lit during the eventing hours. I'll go back sometime in the coming months to get that shot.
  8. Another old photo from the summer. I have always tried to capture birds in flight but the equipment or my shooting wasn't up to snuff for me. This is a sandpiper on South Island, South Carolina.

    This baby ring-tail possum fell out of a palm tree. I picked it up to see if it was OK. Come nightfall I placed at the base of the palm tree. From what I could hear (but not see) the mother came and took it back up the palm tree.

    Morning Folks, another from a recent trip to a local nature reserve.

  24. On Sunday I changed a light bulb in the living room. As I removed the glass lamp shade dish to get to the light bulb I found a dead fly lying in there. So, being a nerd, and having nothing better to do I decided to take a picture of it. As it turned out this fly had been collecting dust for some time. He was quite ugly too...
    D3s, 105mm nikkor + reversed tokina 28mm, SB900 fired manually off camera in three different directions, during the 6 second exposure.
  25. Happy Wednesdays to all Nikonians. Epp, Craig, Johnny; congratulations for your beautiful shots.
    I missed last week's event due to a trip to Switzerland. Below is from that trip, the oldest wooden bridge of Europe in Luzern.
  26. A shell. Obviously!
  27. My contribution this week is a tiny pink flower on a red bamboo like indoor plant taken with a Nikon D40 and Sigma 50mm f1.4 @f4.5 iso400.

    This guys has been on high alert for a LONG time....taken at the Tower of London.
  29. Early morning
  30. Rio das Ostras beach, near my city.
  31. Spent some time Sunday at the local Monarch Butterfly Grove:
  32. We have got a little snow this winter.
  33. Hi!Everybody,
    This picture is from a roadside exhibition of paintings involving painters from all over India.It was called 'Chitra Santhe' and we got to see paintings of all hues.
  34. We had some of the coldest weather in the last few years on Thurs/Friday (28 degrees). I woke up early Friday morning excited to see what I would find. *Everything* was covered in ice. This is an ice sculpture created by Mother Nature and a blade of grass. It looked sort of like a bird to me. (D90/Tamron 60mm, 36mm tube, SB 600 on side bracket @ 1/90, f/9.5, ISO 250)
  35. This image was captured yesterday morning after another snowfall. While snowshoeing past a stand of pines I disturbed these deer who were bedded down there. They didn't spook or seem to mind my presence.
  36. Oops!Deleted the picture as it was too large on the screen,here it is.
  37. So many beautiful, interesting and colorful shots everyone! I 'hired' an Owl butterfly this weekend to model for me.
  38. As always, nice work everyone!
    Winter is way too cold for me to go out and take pictures, but last sunday we had a very nice day here at the Costa Brava, so we headed out for a walk in a local animal reserve. We didn't plan the visit in advance, so I only had one lens with me :)
    D90, Tamron 17-50 f/2.8
  39. This lichen was (conveniently) about 4 ft off the ground, growing on the roots of a spruce tree that had blown down.
    I believe it's called Cladonia diversa, but I am not sure of a more common name.
  40. Whew!!! Still asleep when I tried the last post. Harlequin Ducks... Barnegat Light Inlet Jetty - New 300mm f/2.8 VRII lens. Great posts as always friends.
  41. Hello, Fellow Nikonians !
    This week I have spent my spare time testing the limits of my brand new Nikon D7000, and I am amazed with its perfomance, specially for grainless night shots, and for sports. The photo I share with you this week was taken at the riverine Belém area, in Lisbon, where this beautiful fortress was built in the 16th century, to protect the mouth of the river Tagus. I hope you enjoy it. Have a good photo week !
  42. Happy Wednesdays Nikonians, After the snowstorm, somebody must pick it up. Here takes 5 days non stop. So with those long hours, why not flirt for a change.... (just kidding)
  43. I've been doing my shooting indoors lately. This is my favorite guitar.
  44. January 24, 2011 fire in downtown Windsor, Ontario. The fire started in a massage parlor and destroyed a couple of neighboring businesses. No one was hurt.
    Coolpix P7000, 94mm full-frame equivalent, ISO 100, 1/380 @ f/4.5.
  45. This was what I saw through the kitchen window when I got home from work on Monday. At least it wasn't dark out. There was very light snow which gave the sunset its vertical orientation. The guys ice fishing didn't seem to mind.
  46. This week's image was taken with my Nikon D200 and Nikon 18-70mm lens. ISO 100, f11.
  47. I haven't been posting for awhile, mainly because I have not been shooting as much as I would like. Given the many snow storms that have been occurring this year, here in the north east part of the US, I thought it would only be fitting to show what my Siberian Husky does/likes the best, just "Chillin"in a snow storm.
  48. Off to a roaring start today. All beautiful photos.
    My photo today is of "Sammy Bird" our African Gray Congo. Sammy is 20 years old now and loves to have his picture taken.
    I used my Nikon D90, Sigma 70-200 @ f13, 1/60, iso 200, manual exposure, flash off camera (2) powered by CyberSync wireless.

  49. Since I'm not a wine drinker, red punch had to do. ;)
  50. I took my dogs on a walk an hour before the Super Bowl for good luck and it worked, the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburg Steelers. I am going to do it again next year too.
  51. Nikon F100, Nikkor 28-70 F2.8 AF/S, 2 stop graduated neutral density filter, Kodak E100VS:
  52. Walking the dog on a snowy morning I noticed my husband's birdfeeders as well as the landscape around them was perfect for this picture. So needless to say it was a short walk for the dog.

  74. Great stuff so far! But then, what else did I expect here?
    I'm still "on the beach" but this time going a bit abstract. On this section of sand is writ the day's passings. In the morning the tide and surf will have wiped it smooth and clean, ready for a new day. It was also an opportunity to see how good the D700 is at high ISO
    D700 @ ISO 6400, 24-85 @30mm f/5, hand-held @ 1/100 sec. [Light supplied by under-deck halogen spot]
  75. Seattle

  79. Didn't get a proper look of most photos yet, but like some others, I was also playing with close-up photography and ended up with this coin picture.
  80. I stayed indoors as well, playing around with random stuff I found...
  81. Flowerpot in arcade in Carmel. Nikon F4, Fuji Provia 100, slide scanned with Epson Perfection V500, no modifications other than resizing in GIMP for upload to the forum.
  82. Karl Masreliez - that flower you have posted is the real thing!
  83. Beautiful pictures today. Finlay, I love your geese photo - beautiful color and composition.
    We had 4 days of ice and snow last week in North Texas. It was quite a treat for us but kept us indoors. The kids and I spent some time setting up and photographing old Peeps in distressing situations. Ultimately, all the Peeps escaped and we had an hour of fun.

  88. More great shots this week. I particularly love your glitter/water shot Roberta!
    It's be mostly grey and damp in the UK, so I've continued with my portrait practice. This week it was Merlin's turn to be my model.
    I'm particularly pleased with this one. It's the first time I've used layers.

    Like a number of others, I prefered to shoot inside this week.
  90. Still cold weather here, but everyday a little more daylight after work... Always taking a camera body with me to work.... In this case just clicking away for fun with the D2H I picked up just for occasions like this :)
