Thanks for the kind comments on the fireworks-shot!

Today I went out for another fireworks, this time done by professionals:

D3s, 28/3.5PC at f/11, 10 seconds at ISO200

vanity, pure vanity ;-) a quick grab with a 50/2Ai on a D700, ISO 12800, 1/20sec


WOW
The fireworks shot is beautiful.

Monty, look at all those lenses!


Monty these 2 are very clever - I think I prefer the one with you out of focus - but I don't know.

wonderful Leighton - all so good - and yet very different. (On my monitor the red headband is doing strange things on the third one - especially against the muted winter colours - but I'm nitpicking what is a beautiful shot)

Leighton, very nice set from Monticello (had "to wiki" it, I'm a bit more cultured now ;-).
I like especially the more study-typed pictures: the first one (the thin twigs against the massive building) and the reflection.
Great idea to shoot your double-selfie from a low point of view to include the hill.

no, I knew what Monticello was - and I'm impressed Nikki's been there. I'm more impressed at how you managed to run in front of the camera and look so composed for the shot (don't tell me you got someone else to take the pic or used a wireless remote - let me go on imagining you pressing the shutter and running into position).

Ronny, the movement of the person in the foreground enhances the unswerving expression of the horse - very nice!

Dylan, -20C - brrr! I enjoy a bit of frost/freeze, but that's a bit to low for my taste;-)
Very nice images from the frozen river - my fav is the second one.

Rinie, nice to hear/read from you! A happy and healthy new year to my Dutch/Netherlandish neighbors!

Jose, thanks for sharing the comparison! I will try focus-stacking for some still-life sometimes (for outdoor-shots it won't work on most days here - to much wind=subject movement).

Eric, Scott, Ronny and Ben - thanks for your kind comments!

I love these shots. It's been years since I visited Virginia and I appreciate the photos. This one is especially nice!

Thanks John, Georg, Ben and Ray! Nikki performs admirably!

And Ben, you were right, I set the camera on a bench with the timer set to 10 seconds and ran into position.

This is the main entrance where guest would come. There's a huge foyer with all kinds of artifacts that were brought back from the Lewis and Clark expedition hanging on the walls.
