Thanks so much for all the nice comments about the egrets. They certainly look peculiar cropped, so perhaps I'll have a go at posting a selection. However Flickr is particularly recalcitrant today so it was a struggle just to get this photo ready...

Rafael, if you have LR it's a breeze to edit large amounts of images.

Georg Nice colors! That 1st shot's sign must be prohibiting something...

Ram I like the silvery B&W version best.

Gregg Rust and wood make a very nice subject. I recently got accused of carrying that tin around, but honest, it was just a polarizer!

Ken What an interesting waterfall, lots of interesting angles possible with this one.

Leighton Took me 4 times before I saw what is going on, pretty cool!

Just for you Ram .... and all those interested ......

Took pix at f2 or f2.8 and at f8 on both lenses ..... the exif should let you know which is what !!!

Thanks for looking.

Steve

Today ....

Because it is a door ....

And Leighton likes doors .....

Not so grand as some church doors we have seen recently on here ....

But, nonetheless it's a church .... and it's a door !!!

Jay, the Egrets are just "wow"! My contribution for the caption-contest: "Egret-Duet on a Hot Tin Roof".
Btw, absolutely love your cannon-shots too.

Thaks everyone for the kind comments.

Curtis & Ronny, very nice flowers, as usual;

Nice to see Rinie coming back;

Mihai, beautifully captured girl;

JD fantastic mockinbird (?);

Georg, loved the "bird" with the 85/1.8 H;

Jay, superb herons with the "crazy hairs"

Leighton, loved your last B&W "artsy" capture with the 50-135;

Steve, thanks for the comparison of the 180 vs 200/2.


From my last trip to a Brazilian savannah, the White-eared Puffbird with Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 IF-ED AI:


White-eared Puffbird with Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 IF-ED AI por labecoaves, no Flickr

D7100 + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 AI IF-ED CPU'd hand held, ISO 400, f/8 at 1/800s, 50% cropped. Due to the DX sensor, this was effectively a 600/5.6. As I was inside my SUV ("mobile blind"), it was easy to approach ~< 10m the puffbird.

Leighton, great B&W and very nice unusual framing on your eating sheeps!

Steve, thanks for sharing your 180/2.8 vs 200/2-comparison. The wide-open birdfeeder-images really show how much 1 stop can be in terms of DoF. The door is very nicely captured.

Bert, very atmospheric shots from your neighborhood - nice work!

Rafael, I really like the first image from your Mariachi-festival.

Ram, nice processing-studies. The outlines of the trees are looking strange. I've got similar effects when using SilverEfex with certain settings.

Gregg: nice wood!

Ken, nice sets - I like especially "Both Falls". Your images are looking a bit too much JPG-compressed lately - no offense meant.

Ronny, superb work as usual! I really like your longtime-exposures.

Ed, your door-details are wonderful!

David, the evening light on your shots is really beautiful. Note to myself: Should shoot more at dusk…

James, I really enjoy looking at your fine studio-shots.






Thanks for the kind words on my recent images - much appreciated!

Some more MF-shots from yesterday. Closeout at a plant with a long history. Sad story - they used to make really large diesel-engines here, up to over 35.000 HP (for ships, without gearbox - all those horses were directly delivered to a large fixed prop).
Now all tools and machines are for sale, from a screwdrivers (sold in lots) to mammoth machines.

This friendly worker started in 1966 his in-plant-training here and is one of the last workers right now, cleaning up the plant, helping equipment-buyers to dismount the machines. He is 62 now and never worked elsewhere:

Last days at the closed plant - D3s, Ai-Nikkor 55/1.2 at f/1.4


55/1.2 wide open


55/1.2 at f/2


a rather small pickup-truck - "Eidechse" = "Lizard" - 55/1.2 wide open

Georg, your photos of the factory closing are very much the experience I had back
in 1995. After my 28 years there, they also closed, and at age 60 I was looking for another job. I know how the fellow in the photo must feel. I hope he has good luck
with retirement or finding other employment.

Ed, thanks. He is 62 now and is hoping for promised new retirement-regulations. After 47 years of hard physical work he should have the right to retire with full pension in my opinion.
Most new jobs here are desktop-employments (call-centers, insurances, marketing and stuff like this). Not the proper job for many people formerly employed at the wharfs and industrial plants...
