Jeff, excellent pier-shot! I like the processing a lot. Just in case you will enter it into a contest: the lower parts of the pillars at the left side would benefit from slightly deeper blacks in my opinion, but that's just nitpicking. I'm far less critical on my own pictures ;-)

Kevin, I prefer the monochrome version.

Laura, I'm glad that Moggy Nikki is no longer a nameless cat. The bounced flash makes her whiskers stand out very nicely. I've noticed beautiful colors and great fur-detail on your earlier posted cat-images too, probably the result of a bounced flash and your skills ;-)

Pburke, very nice inventory-shots. The DIY-lightbox works great.

Reagan, I wonder if the D600 delivers more highlight- and shadow-details than your D700. Pictures of dark cars with chrome accents would benefit from the reported higher dynamic range.

John, sorry to hear about the multi-exposed Provia-leader... I've had this happen a very long time ago and I'm now double-checking the film-transport since then.

John, Reagan, Ray, Jeff, Jose, Scott and Ray - thanks for your kind words on the B&W-pano!

WOW! This hasn't happened in quite some time. Three pages added since my last visit. A lot of great images people!

Thanks for the comments on the snow pics.

Thanks Georg, I do need to work on my light skills a bit more, but I have fun with my flashes. I'll pick up Moggy Nikki from the vet this afternoon, after school, so that the other cats aren't picking on her (one in particular is asserting himself lately)

+1, I may go back to one of the local cemeteries and retry the panos I did last year, before the leaves pop out again. Stitching can be so addictive

Definitely the color version!

OK folks... I had enough people wonder what the hood ornament shot would look like in B/W. Since the Dodge is really old, I tried to give the conversion a feel like it was just as old as the truck (sans any scratches in the picture...)

Taken with the Series E 50mm, f/1.8. Which should I enter into the contest? Tomorrow is the last day.

Bravo! very nicely done. The frames are apparently coded in, but don't come back on quoted images, as it appears to be a table surrounding the image. (viewed page source to see the coding)

Laura,I have something like that .It's big and Black with lots of Chrome

John, I had also done that a couple decades ago Then I got in the habit of watching the top of the winder of my F2 to make sure it was turning when I advanced the Film

Kevin, I also like the B/W version I think the orange in the color version is a distraction

Love the pier shot Jeff

Thanks Ben, Georg, Laura and Reagan!

Georg, I appreciate your suggestion on the pier black levels and will do some fine tuning on the image with SEP. One of the great things about this thread is getting constructive feedback from excellent photographers, like yourself. Keep it coming!

+1 Strange how there's so much sharpness in the water at a 20 second exposure.

Found an old favorite.

Shot with a Nikon F2AS and a 50mm 1.4 back in the 80's when I was young. My uncle has a 40 x 60 framed print of this and it holds together really well.

Thanks Ray, Leighton and Scott!

Leighton, the foreground sharpness in the water got a big assist from a negative low tide, almost no wind and a period of slack water at the turn of the tides. When conditions are right, it's pretty amazing how reflective a thin sheet of water on sand can be.

Jorge, gorgeous cityscape. Is this a scanned slide/print? French city?

Thank you Leighton. Sorry to spring them on you all at once. I enjoyed my time with Nikki and will be sad to see her go
