I've been up to my elbows in alligators that past couple of weeks getting ready for a last elk hunt with my oldest son before he leaves for med school. Unfortunately, the hunt got canceled when he came down with a serious case of the flu and had to be hospitalized. With some unexpected time to fill while I'm waiting for my son to repair, I've been rolling through one amazing page of MA2A images after an other.

To fill the void that would have been travel today, I've been working on the images for my upcoming Southwest Aviation Review article on the F-35B. Accordingly, I offer one last teaser photograph before my article comes out next week (keeping fingers crossed). Sometimes I like backlit images

Wrei, thought you'd be interested in a charred JD 9770.

The rear axle got hot enough that it snapped.

Uncle #1 was harvesting soybeans when the combine caught fire. Dad was working in a field 10 miles away (as the crow flies) and saw the smoke.

Their combine was in the shop so this was a dealer loaner.

Uncle #1 has burns on his back and arms and broke his leg jumping from the combine. His hospital stay is currently at 58 days. Doing 'fine', it's just a slow process.

The JD and the insurance company have looked at it. The insurance man says he knows where it started, but will not say where.

An hour before the fire uncles #1 & 5 had blown the dust off the combine which should've eliminated the usual dust fire. Dad's theory is that a hydraulic fluid from a broken hose started the fire.



I feel for you and your family. As an ex farmer I know it is tough enough to be picking over a drought damaged crop without having this to contend with.

Hoping all gets well with Uncle no:1 soon. send him down to Australia for a holiday to recover

Jeff,
very nice. with the treatment you've given the image, it almost looks like an artist's rendering.

Look forward to seeing and reading your article.

Thanks Gero. I'm working to whittle my images from the 20 I like to the 5 that will be used. I'm used to the client doing this chore; however, it has fallen into my shaky hands and I'm struggling with the process

Nicely Done Jeff. It definitely has a "rendered" feel to it.

Reconstructing some LR catalogs and overhauled this from 2009 outside Nellis...

Don't know. I found the link on FB, and it said it was shot with the 1DX.

Wow, Phantom or 1DX, still pretty awesome. I love seeing the front claws extend on that clip where the cheetah almost catches that furry thing they are towing along.

Here's a short behind-the-scenes video, you can see where the 1DX's were used. Not clear how they were integrated into the final product, though:



The cheetahs were shot at 1200 frames per second. How about one trillion frames per second, shot at MIT:



You can actually see light in motion.

A little compare and contrast. In the afternoon, pylon 8 is where you want to be if you want to hear the big boys in full song. This is the fastest part of the course, but the light gets worse and worse, as the afternoon goes on.

Tim, your Reno images are outstanding! Tough lighting conditions or not, you are producing some moving images. I really like the mood in the B/W's. Thanks for sharing.

Well, I finally bit the bullet and booked my flights for MotoGP in April.

I had been concerned because last year The Circuit of the Americas was on the tentative schedule then Dorna pulled the plug on it at the last minute over concerns of the facilities not being ready in time for the proposed date, but I don't see that happening again, so barring any dramatic work life changes happening between now and April I will be flying in to Austin Thursday afternoon and flying out Monday early morning.

My first Drobo 5D arrived today. I just spent about 1/2 an hour prepping it and firing it up. Haven't installed an SSD in it yet, but the speeds I've seen so far are remarkable. Pulling up and saving files in Photoshop happens so fast that the saving dialogue boxes close instantly after one clicks the "OK" tab, even with D800 files at full TIFF res.

The bottle neck currently is the fact that it's the only Thunderbolt drive I have, so moving anything from other drives is limited by the read/write speeds of the slower arrays. Once I have the array filled with client files, I'll be able to take advantage of the speed. Having everything stored on Thunderbolt arrays would save an incredible amount of time over a year. A stack of 5D arrays hooked up to the newest iMac platform would be a real treat.

I also want to purchase the latest iMac, they just look so nice. But that might be a tough one to sneak passed the wife

Hi Steven,

I think Apple was a tad optimistic on release dates. The smaller version said "November" and there's no sign of them so far. The 27" said December, so they have a month to make good on that. They do look pretty cool.

Halle and I burned up a couple of loaves of bread this afternoon. When I clicked this, I think both parties were wondering what they had gotten themselves involved in.......................

Delivered a Christmas present to one of my favorite clients this afternoon. A 40" pano of the T-38 post dusk image. We printed it on an Fuji pearl paper then did a special overlay with a protective high gloss, micro thin product. The presentation was more dramatic than I anticipated, and hitting it with a strategically placed accent light will make for a breathtaking presentation. A second edition is being printed for HQ.

First unscientific 5D speed test. A 35 GB folder took 9 minutes to download from the 5D to my MacBook Pro desktop. Same folder took 90 minutes to copy from the desktop to an array in my network via ethernet cable.

The real time saver for me will be the lack of a lag in pulling, retouching and re-saving images. The rest you can just begin and walk away. Although it has to be a great deal easier on the drives to run for 9 minutes vs 90 x all the backing up I do in a year's time.
