Thanks everyone
Here's one of what's a very typical outdoor Japanese train station
It doesn't quite matter where in Japan, they look pretty much the same
It's like they came out from a mould, fabricated somewhere else and plonked in

They look very similar in older, outdoor stations in Europe as well. Guess the most basic is all that is needed.

Larry, welcome to this fine thread! I like framing and colors of the first shot a lot.

Andy, nice street-shot! How would you rate the Df's finder compared to other Nikon DSLR finders?

Chin, the train-station looks like an old one over here indeed. Nice structures to play with...

Thanks. I do love the precision of trains in Japan, they stick to their schedules so fastidiously.
We were in for a treat at the other end of our journey though.
Reaching the city of Hakata, we were amazed at the number of people crowding around the terminal, an unusual occurrence.
Everyone and their mothers (honest, saw three grannies worm their way to the front of the crowd) whipped out their smartphones, some with DSLRs and started snapping away at this purplish train; uniformed men with white gloves were ushering people in, waving, looking important
We peered in, the interiors looked real posh. Until we reached the one with a grand piano.
And private chefs? Backs to us but we could check out the one busy dipping his hand into the rice bucket, making sushi like an automaton.

Turns out the Seven Stars in Kyushu's the attraction, a cruise train that costs a bomb, upwards of USD2000 per person
Kinda figures all the passengers were umm old; at least 70 I figured
Like mini celebrities they waved to us as the train pulled out of its berth
Btw it's booked up all the way until next year April
Here's an article on the train service:

Some shots from this afternoon, jumping on the train-theme:


Molli von georgsfoto auf Flickr
D700 + 180/2.8ED, framing with room for improvement ;-)
Was waiting for the train from the opposite direction, snapped some quick shots from this steam loco too.


Molli von georgsfoto auf Flickr
D700 + 180/2.8ED too, ISO 12800, the light was fading quickly. Colors may be off, but are reflecting the images taken with my eyes and the gray stuff behind ;-)
cropped a bit - still not a shot with a framing to suit my taste


Bahnhof Groß Schwaß von georgsfoto auf Flickr
train station in rural Germany - some folks here seem to be able to write French terms ;-)
D700 + PC 85/2.8D shifted upwards

...and now for something completely different:

Dorfkirche Hanstorf von georgsfoto auf Flickr
a small village-church, built from the late 13th century on - not the best point of view, but the only view without traffic-signs I could find today
3 vertical and fully upwards shifted shots with the PC 85/2.8D stitched together (panned the camera)

Not much time to shoot lately or keep up with this thread, but I found this image from the other day.
Walking back to the car after picking the girls up from school. Looked up and found this in the viewfinder.

Thanks for the response. Yes, I suspect a micro prism would be of much more aid... I recently purchased an FT3 to try and use the focusing screen from it (awesome microprism) but as it turns out, It wont fit. Glass is same thickness and length, but the width was too short by a few mms.


I use a Katzeye on a D300. It is not very good with lowlight and it seems to be in tune with the focus confirm light I probably use the light more out of habit.But the screen is good in daylight
The camera came with the screen along with the original

Philippe, terrific "Monarchist" shot. The photo of the "Porte de la Craffe" with the 50/1.8 is outstanding.

Chuong, great long range egret shots.

Ray, hope you're fully recovered from the flu. Very nice Christmas shots.

JD, wonderful, colorful birds.

Samy, I really enjoyed your PC shots of the impressive churches of Baltimore.

Scott, great work on the icy bittersweet berries.

Luc, really enjoyed the exposures, colors and subjects of your NASA shots.

Chin, "arrowhead" is a terrific shot.

Brian and Ray, beautiful ornament shots.

Steve, I agree with Leighton. "Peveril of the Peak" is one of your best.

Laura, love your takes on Charlie Brown's Christmas tree.

Avi, I like your ice shots, especially the bokeh play in the last one.

Buddy, very nice tree silhouette.

Welcome Sebastian!

Philip, nice ones.

Ronny, beautiful flowers.

Andy, lovely shots from the gardens.

Sar, very nice falls.

Sandy, I like the window with the 105/2.5.

Leighton, very nice composition work on the windows and doors, especially the caboose.

Welcome Larry!

Georg, wonderful train and church photos.

After seeing Chin's, Georg's and Don's images on this page, I'm suddenly reminded of "Murder on the Orient Express". Good shooting guys! You too John!

George, excellent images all, including the Orient Express shots! Interesting about the stitched shot of the church. Made me think, should I try to do that with 28 3.5 PC images (at least a couple of merged shots when the subject is too tall and I know the top part is going to be fuzzy). I think in that scenario though when the lens is at an angle to the plane of the subject, the distortion may get in the way. Worth trying still.

Of course I still don't have enough RAM on my machine to let PSE create a pano merge, this is only an academic discussion

Sticking with today's theme, here's one from yesterday of the Staunton depot. Processed in Analog Efex Pro.

Thanks folks for the encouraging comments on the church images. There's quite a number of them and with time I want to also do retakes when there's better light. Ray (OH), it took me a bit to realize what urban furniture meant. I will try to find some that don't have that furniture in the way.

Philippe, nice pic of the 14th century prison/gate in Nancy!

Sandy, welcome to the thread, and great lens to use for that jumble of cables!

Sar, wonderful waterfall!!

Ronny, terrific flowers again! I especially liked the 2nd one.

Leighton, glad I could help you go looking for doors again Quite frankly I don't think I ever paid attention to doors until I came across your posts

Larry, welcome and just love that photo of the red wing blackbird! I have taken some snaps of them here, but never that close and I like its assertive expression! Beautiful birds in Dallas, is that a row of cormorants directly behind the pelicans you focused on?

Andreas, nice holiday street scene!

Chin, very interesting Japanese train station, and quite a look inside the luxury train.

John, loved the fractal tree with your 45 2.8 P, quite a structure going on there.

Don, what a lens to use for your latest mystery cover, the result is still the same!

I'm sure I've said this before on this forum but the Nikkor 300/2.8 Ai is probably the best bargain in long Nikkors. Also--other than ultra wide angles---it's also the easiest manual focus Nikkor to focus. It's big--and you have to use a tripod--but every time I take it out I get some keepers!

John, your "Fractal Tree" is the perfect example that great B&W-images don't always need to show a full scale of graytones. Well seen and captured!

Leighton, I really like the second Stanton-Depot-image, but prefer the processing of #1 Nice shooting!

Don, it's almost thrilling to follow you into your "cosmos" full of spies, hitmen and other highly questionable characters ;-) I love your unique style - thanks for sharing your work here.
