This is just a side view, looking into the delivery of one of the presses. I was trying to get the motion of the grippers, but at 18,000 sheets per hour, they aren't going to be much more than a blur anyway!

Thanks all for the comments!

Leighton - I really liked your street sunset. I like the fact that you aren't centered on the street so you can see the storefronts.
Scott - Great color on the berries.
Jeff - I like the washed out look on the surfer.
Laura - All I saw on your sign was Free Naked Ladies! Cool shot with the snow.

Some shots from downtown after I returned that book The last one, I immediately thought of several people here who would have missed the last line....



Very nice set, Laura! Sorry, can't read the last line - everything below "Perfection has its price" is just too small for my eyes



Very amusing shot Laura. Love the small pile of snow as well, I hope your car isn't under it. I like the dog's expression in the second of the dog shots too.

Georg - the lines underneath read
"Always Enjoy Responsibly
(c) 2007 Import Brands Alliance
Importers of bottled beer & [something] [something] liquors" (and then followed by an address I think)

Rafael - amazing setup on the D800 and a great shot with it, what detail that camera and lens gives! The shot works really well with the rain behind the house giving it quite an atmosphere.

Monty - amazing shots of the dogs playing. Rocky looks quite the psycho, glad it's just friendly.

Americo - lovely bokeh with the 85mm. i like how you captured the lights through the mask's eyes in the second photo especially.

Tony - I like your series from your workplace. Giving monty's Webex shots a serious bit of competition.

Ben / Chin - Love your respective PCE panoramas. Ben, I hope that you and your family are not affected by the horrible bushfires there.

josh - great family portraits, and glad you are safely back from your service. I like the expression / pose of your daughter with the open hand and painted nails. lovely rendering by the lens too.

Kind regards,
Mark.

Sorry, missed one. Jeff - I like your B&W set, not so keen on the surfer, I think it would look better in colour as it's too washed out to work in B&W in my opinion (although I see that Tony disagrees with me, taste is subjective of course) but the pelican shot is really eye catching and well done plus the first one - the sunset(?) really makes me look twice.

Scott - Love the berry shot. This is one noxious weed we have way too many of around here!

Josh - Welcome home, and welcome back to the thread, love the shots of your kids! I also love the fact that you did them using the D3000.

Santa was kind enough to drop a copy of silver efex pro2 down the chimney and I've been working on learning this Lightroom plug-in. Here are a few test images. Any comments or suggestions for improvement from the b&w conversion pros on the forum would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Jeff



Jeff, beautiful B&W's, especially the Pelicans. I've used SEP a little, and the thing I like best about it is the structure slider. It sort of adds clarity without changing any tones. There's some great tutorials on-line that can help as well.

^ Someone is going to be very happy with that lens. I would buy it in a heartbeat if I didn't have one already.

WOW, great price for that lens in such condition Reagan.

I am officially joining the fisheye club. Here is my 16mm f3.5 AI'd. I just took about 1hr this morning to make it AI.
Mounted on my D700 just fine now. I will have some images from it soon.

I do it from Dropbox. A lot of us seem to be doing that from Flickr.
