Leighton, I'd say skip the internal and just go with a USB 3.0 external one, Sandisk and Lexar ones are good. Daughter just got a new laptop and there are plenty of tech support issues going on right now..... MOM.. help me!

Hey all,

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

Thanks Alan!

Great shot, Ray!
Really Good shot Reagan :-)

Seems to be no shoot today either when it is raining today .. may take
one from yesterday when at least it not rained for a whole hour ;-)
Almost identical to last one .. iso 3200 and f2 . Bokeh is lovely on this lens :-)
almost directly from the camera .. just a little more black and added darken/lighten/ center in Color Efex pro

I put Nikki to work this morning doing chores with me. She told me she didn't like getting up so early, especially on the weekends!



What's weird is that when I scroll that shot, I get a green outline of the mountain over John's right shoulder.

John, the fisheye-selfie with green-filter should make a really nice B&W. Sometimes accidents can lead to fantastic pictorial results;-)


Here you go Georg!








Love it!
(that is one of the reasons I like b/w. I have soooo much trouble with white ballance)



Thanks Leighton!

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


Ok, I give up, in a day you've posted a lot more pages than I'm going to keep up with, in between daughter's pleas for help with getting her printer working with her new laptop (different house south of town and I'm not making a house call tonight!) and trying to get ready to go out. I've only caught up to page 2417!!

Thank you Leighton. That 85mm 1.4 lens never disappoints. Since Nikki has proved to be a great FOV for you I know you will love this lens when it makes it's way into your arsenal!

Philippe, Ronny, Jose - thank you!

Here's an old summerly shot, discovered while searching for another picture:

105/2.5 Ai'd at f/4 on a D700 - the oldtime-Nikkor makes a nice lens for ship-portraits;-)


Cool!
I love the "face" on the ship

Here's a quick panorama with the 100/2.8 series E. This is looking West towards the Olympic Mountains - down there somewhere is Seattle.

Actually, if you blow it up you can just see the tops of the skyscrapers downtown about 30 miles away.

Oh Man John....

Took the D800 and my 16/3.5, 50/1.8G, and 100/2.8 Series E out hiking in the snow this morning. None of the 50/1.8G images made the cut, but got some good ones from the MF lenses:

Zenfolio seems to clobber the sharpness in slideshow mode.

I got some of my breath on the front of the 16/3.5 and after that it seemed to show more ghosting than usual with the sun in the frame.

Here's some samples -


You're killin' me John!!!!
I run out of superlatives when trying to describe your pictures.
Really, really nice.

Monty, I hope 2013 will start picture-wise like 2012 ended - I love all 4 shots above!
The perfectly composed, wonderfully processed icicle-shots made me think about beards - time to play some of my favorite ZZ-Top-tunes ;-)
The friendly mailwoman is beautifully captured (great timing and focus) too and the still life top-notch.
Wow, great work

Ray, another pair of beautiful flower-shots. Love the very natural, yet rich colors. Your focusing-skills are amazing.

As usual too many posts for me to comment on But I looked and enjoyed them all
Winter pics from John are outstanding
Monty, I don't know how you even go outside in weather like that

I know this photo has all kinds of things wrong with it but I like it anyway

I've spend the midnight-hours with 3 Nikons, 3 tripods and my battered Stanley full of hot, strong Coffee at the local river and tried to capture the fireworks on the other river-side.
There's no "official", big firework here for financial reasons, but the locals tried their best to step into the breach and banged up my old hometown like there's no tomorrow ;-)
I've felt like a piano-player hammering the 3 remote-controls...
Here's a tilted fireworks-shot, taken a bit after midnight. I like the effect, but it would work better on a professional, higher firework:

D3s, PC 85/2.8 at f/5.3 (the effective aperture is recorded with these lenses), 8seconds at ISO200

before carrying all the heavy stuff back to my car I've snapped the set-up with cold, shaky fingers:

A D700 with 28/3.5PC and later 105/2.5 was on tripod at the left side

Reagan, I like the glitzy high-contrast-look. A perfect fit for your beautiful Chevelle.

Rafael, your shot of the fireworks-failure is impressive to say the least.


Georg, I had posted this before, it is from the 4th of July in San Diego Bay, the computer programmer made an error and 2 hours worth of fireworks went off in 20 seconds, I was disappointed, but lucklily I did not wait and took a 30 second exposure that caught most of it as a white blob. Unexpected but spectacular.

Hope 2013 goes off with a Bang too!

Very impressive - and until I looked at the date I thought YOU had blown the highlights
