WOW leighton I see you saved the best for last! That shot is amazing. You show almost the whole platform in one terrific shot!

Leighton, I really like the "depth" of your latest depot-image. Very nice B&W too

Chin, very nice shot of the smartphone-photographer! Dark maroon and gold are a nice contrast to his jacket.

Chin, nice story and images of the luxury train. I am surprised the logo is in English.

Georg, great trains and churches. You are rocking! The farmland shot is very nice.

Don, another great book cover image. Very moody.

Leighton, I like the first station shot. Amtrak does not use that line much anymore. Many years ago it was the passenger main for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad. EDIT: After I posted this, you had put up another image from the station platform. Very very nice!

Ray, very nice work with the high ISO.

Thank you Chin I had to look back at my setting and I did add a little noise reduction in that photo in the color and contrast. I really like the photo of the guy taking a photo
Thanks Leighton I think we both made the right decision in choosing the D600
Georg I really like the lighting as well as the grain
Thank you Scott

Had a weekend away for my birthday, 3 nights in a lodge in the rainforest.

Here are some macros - d800e, 105/2.8 ais micro + PN-11 to get to 1:1. Some cropping involved, sometimes a lot of cropping involved as some of these are tiny insects ie 2mm long !





Robber Fly

  NIKON D800E    0.0 mm f/0.0 lens    105mm    f/8.0    1/200s    400 ISO    0.0 EV  







Tiny leafhopper

+1. I've decided I'll ignore the Df, D800E, etc, for the foreseeable future, until something critical dies in the D700. I'm only at ~40k shutter clicks, so statistically speaking, I have a long way to go.

Some shots from the barn this morning. We went to do chores this morning and there in the middle of the barn was the first lamb of the season. It's always nice when you go to the barn and they're already standing and cleaned off with a full belly.

The iodine on Barbara's hand is from dipping the lamb's umbilical cord. We do this to help dry it up fast so it doesn't get infected.

Just a ewe wondering what's going on. I love the look from this lens at f2.

What a terrific photograph of a very interesting subject. I can't recall seeing another train station on a curve. Really nice Leighton!

Lovely train, night shots, and animals! Not much along those lines here, but we do have doors!
D800 45PC-E @ f/5.6





I like the way the sun gets into places normally in shadow this time of year.

I just received my 24mm PC-E back from repair. I had the tilt rotated 90 deg. while it was in the shop so it will behave differently.
I wonder how a long focal length PC lens would handle? I suppose you would use the focal plane control to advantage but wouldn't get as much perspective control as you would with shorter focal lengths.

Here's another wide open 85mm. I have to really work at getting used to this focal length!

Thanks everyone.
Scott: I remember reading a paper on wealth distribution in the prefectures in relation to their distance from Tokyo.
Kyushu and Okinawa at the far end south have some of the poorest prefectures.
The train was built to attract tourists, local and more so foreign. If you’re a visitor from abroad, you actually have priority in booking the seats.
In a rare move, the company also invited foreign media to cover the opening and maiden voyage (or so I gathered from the numerous English travel and business portal articles online).

Leighton: That’s really cool, thanks for sharing especially since it reminded me of stories my dad used to tell me.
I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned this but my dad got retrenched in the late 90s Asian financial crisis.
He was in the same bank since he was 18, and I guess it meant a lot for him – the routine, the camaraderie, the sense of purpose, providing for the family

It was odd adjusting to him being at home days, and he was always restless, unsure of what to do
Ended up mostly sleeping and reading, an entirely unhealthy habit to be on; he became a shadow of the man he used to be, less confident and recluse
He was ‘saved’ by an old bank client, who bought up tracts of land at the nearby limestone hills and decided to start a farm, gathering up old friends who were willing to help

Think millionaire retiree astride a horse with shotgun on the saddle (for monkeys, squirrels and monitor lizards), wearing a stetson, dogs by his side, and the ubiquitous silver flask of whisky (!) - I think he’d fancy himself a modern day cowboy.
He’d grow anything you’d suggest him to, rear whatever he fancies, learning from books or advice from the local agriculture and livestock council.

Sheep were a favorite (huge demand during the Muslim celebrations) and my dad would tell me of hours spent climbing the mountains to look for that odd one who missed morning roll call. Not particularly bright they are, going all the way up and then not knowing how to come down again, legs trapped in goodness knows what crevice.

He’d tell us at the dinner table of helping birth the young; I can almost remember his laughter and his eyes growing large, when he remarked, ‘I couldn’t imagine the legs of that creature within the womb when they came out!’ His friend reading off the book with a torchlight, him with his hands dirty.
He put in a lot of effort there, came home sweaty and dirty in the evening but he loved every minute of it
