Alan - Newfoundland is not so cold (well, it is compared to Texas), but it's so damn *windy* that you feel cold all the time. A difficult place to enjoy the outdoors in the winter.


Sounds like the Texas panhandle...

Laura, praying for you.

Scott, the shot of the church is stunning.

Leighton. It looks to me like Nikki will enjoy her time on the farm.

Monty, Tina will love it. I am glad you were able to lend a helping hand

Hey all,

My card reader just bit the dust. Anyone like to suggest one for an internal fit?

Thanks Alan!

Since my last visist 9 days ago you guys have delivered 35 more pages!
I took 2 days just to read all of them!

Great photos and conversation as usual from everybody; too many to comment, just some for now:

John, spetacular sunsets in a snowny scenario with the 24/2.8;

Georg and Philippe, great sets with the 28 and 24 PCs;

Scott, liked the red fruit + snow and the Moon + Church, really special shots;

Monty, loved the "Higgs meet the straw" shot;

Rafael, what a great image with the 8mm f/2.8!

Mark, Philippe (inspired by Mark) and Leighton (inspired by both), great cloud sets;

Ray, impressively sharp and well composed set of Billy Ocean with the 80-200/4.5 AI;

Tony, what a contrasty and sharp 3-shot pano with your new 55/1.2 SC, congrats!

Chin, liked your guitar sets;

Ray (Ohio), nice winter scenario.

So we got a bit of Christmas rain out here. Just the kind of weather for a few plastic bags, and lenses without fancy electronic gizmos. Unfortunately I'm nowhere near my fancy electronic gizmo with Lightroom, so I'm working with a Capture NX2 trial.


D600 - 105/2.5 Ai - 10sec - /11 - ISO 100


I Absolutely Love It!
Well executed


+1, beautifully captured!

Well, for those of you who are not comfortable taking pictures of people, I found the perfect starting place. A wedding.

Last night my POD (Personal Occupancy Designstation) partner,Tina, got married. The hired photographer ditched out after the ceremony. I was wandering around the dinner and reception with my camera. I kinda looked like a pro. D600, grip and an 85mm f/1.4. People were coming up to me asking me to take their picture "Will you take our picture?" , "Will you take my picture with me grandma?" I just walked around and took everyones picture. No one crabbed at me.

When the bride and groom cut the cake, people ran over to me to photograph it. I'll tell you one thing, I know why real photographers use flashes. THe light was terrible for many pictures. I know my camera has a flash on it, but I've never used it

I only had my 85mm and found it too long for many of the shots people wanted me to take. If I was a real photographer, I would have taken my 28mm, 50mm and the ever present 85mm. Maybe the fisheye for the ceremony. (or a nice close up of the bride, making her nose about 10X larger than normal )

I'd like to print this picture and give to to Tina when we return to work on Wednesday. I've never been so worried about a print. I hope she likes it. I hope I didn't PP it too much.... Oh Well..


Beautiful happy wedding photo Monty.

During my vacations I experimented with the 105mm f/2.8 micro Nikkor + TC16 A (= "micro-Nikkor 168mm f/4.5").

One of the first images was this rusty stuff


Rusty chains with the "168mm f/4.5 micro-Nikkor" by labecoaves, on Flickr

D3 + TC16A teleconverter + Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 AI-S [= 168mm f/4.5], hand held, SB-800 flash with diffuser, ISO 800, f/11 at 1/60s.
Even at f/11 this combo delivers a thin DOF.
