p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Your Best Nikon shots.


There's been a lot of talk and discussion around theories and rumours lately, so to help lighten it up, it might be interesting to have a thread for shots taken with a Nikon, with just average equipement, to share and learn. Can I suggest recording some insight and settings used. Keeping it to 1 or 2 shots max is the challenge.

I'll start.

The shots not art or even very different. Its been done a billion or so times before, but its still my favourite because its the very photo that got me really excitied about photography. I waited two hours for the sun to set that day.... and it didn't let me down.

1 sec exp.
f8
taken in 1994 with a Nikon F601 with a standard boring 35-70/f3.3-4.5
Plain old Kodak 100 Gold.







PS With such great contributions... the 'challenge' was changed to 1 or 2 shots a day!

My favorite captures are of my grandchildren, not because of the quality, just for the fact grandkids are just special!

I would hard pressed to pick favorites of my other work. Here are a couple that I like because they are simple

Taken with a Nikonos V with a wide angle lens, Kodachrome ASA 25.






Here is one taken with a Nikon D2H, 200-400mm @ 200mm, f/13, 1/2000 sec

Nikon is dead.

Long live Nikon.

Nikon D200 ,Nikkor 35-70mm f/2.8D AF
5s f/10.0 at 35.0mm iso100







I have too many "favorites" to pick one, but thought this shot would fit with the contemporary web hype on the demise of nikon.

J,
Pull out that old Velvia Bud! I love that shot! DS is making a 24x36 print of sunrise for me, I forgot it was the H that took it until I looked it up.

Rusty, beautifully done!

Kerry, I love your theme! With all the hype recently you would think that Nikon was incapable of taking great pictures. And to think you used a zoom and not one of those specialty fixed focal lengths jobby thingy's that everyone wants custom made for their needs.
What's funny is all of the UW work I have done I have only used one camera and one lens.

Not my best ... I tend to value some of the people shots ( buried in hard drives at home - none here ) ... but lately I've taken to liking this one.

Adorski ... I take it that is your daughter? She has amazing eyes. The way you shot it also brings them out. Good work!

I particularly like this shot:
Shot with my trusty old N80 and the only lens I had at the time my 70-300 f/4-5.6D on Kodak E100

Who would of thought you could get bokeh like this with that lens

This was a complete snapshot taken during a visit to the beach. Most of my best shots seem to be taken completely by accident.
