Great firework shot georg, fantastic conversion.

Thanks scott, love that 1st one of yours. 14" wow ! Does the snow last ? Whenever it snowed when I lived in the uk it turned to grey mush all too quickly.

By the way, it's 36 degrees Celsius here, has been since before xmas and set to continue all next week at least so the snow looks almost appealing ! We would love some rain at least.

Scott, the "Life is good"-lettering caught my eyes before reading your caption. Nice catch! Hope the snow-storm won't cause any serious problems.
Btw, are you straighten your shots in post? The church-sets from a week or so ago made me think they could be corrected this way.


Thank you Georg. Yes I did straighten these in LR5. I should have done the church series the other week but I did not have enough image to work with. I did not want to cut off any more of the steeple. Need to use a wider lens and reshoot that scene.

Hi Andy, thanks for the comment. This time of year the snow usually stays around for quite awhile. The long range forecast does not predict a daytime high above freezing (32 degrees F) for the next week.

When I saw this, only two places came to mind... Australia, or Iraq. I've always wanted to visit Australia... my trips to Iraq, on the other hand, were never what I would consider "voluntary." Lol. (Though during my first tour, i did see the most beautiful sunset of my life... Never appreciated an incoming sand-storm until that evening!)

Enjoy the t-shirt weather!

It would be fine if I didn't have things to do in the garden ! You know what they say about "Mad dogs and englishmen"

Still, at least the pool is nice and warm ;-)

The storm arrives. We are in for a good winter storm the next day or so (most of the Midwest and northeast US). Since last night 14" of snow, plenty of wind, and a high in the single digits today. Took a walk a noon today for some early storm shots. All taken with the 35 f2 Ai. Stay warm and safe everyone. Thanks for looking.
Scott


Very very nice Scott. It looks like you walked around in Staunton, maybe they're sister cities.

Have fun in the storm, I think we missed this one, just really cold and windy.

Seeing Samy's comments on Francis Scott key reminded me of a couple of images I took in England last year at Sir Edward Elgar
s cottage in Worcestershire.

He is the composer of the Pomp & Circumstance marches and In Britain today the Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 is inexorably linked with the words ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ and has become a second national anthem.

There is a life sized statue of him sitting in the garden looking out at the Malvern hills in the distance and I took a couple of head and shoulders shots.

A delayed Happy New Year to everyone !
My humble contributions, two fireworks with 20mm/2.8 and the 400/5.6 K:



2014 New year Fireworks with Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 AI-S by labecoaves, on Flickr

D600 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 AI-S CPU'd supported on a beanbag, ISO 100, f/8 at 20 sec of exposure. ~50% crop because extra areas had no fireworks.




2014 New year Fireworks with Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7100 + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K ai'd + tripod, ISO 100, f/11 at 20 sec of exposure. ~15% cropped. The scene was over 1 km of distance.

Scott and Leighton, stay safe and warm. Only 4 or so inches out here but the wind is a killer. And some of the temps predicted in the next few days I haven't come across before, they are more Scott's domain.

Scott, loved the architecture images in the snow! Very enjoyable and I would rather see them through your posts than be brave enough to walk through the snow in these temps

Peter (Knysna), nice selfie (j/k ). Very well taken images of that statue. Pomp and circumstance sounds like something the British royal family would like, will have to look up more on Sir Elgar and the poem.

Happy New Year Jose. That's a fine fireworks photo. Too bad I spent New Year's Eve playing mahjong

Love those two Peter, I like how you got in close. Very lifelike, the angles are great

Chuong, wow, what a fantastic portrait! I really like the silhouette-style of it, "lifting" the foreground via fill-flash of some sort would have been a bad choice.

Jose, wonderful fireworks-shots! Beautiful examples that good firework-images should contain an interesting foreground.

Peter, very nice "portraits" of the composer. I wholeheartedly agree with Chin about angles and lens-choice.
