John, thank you! I'm a novice at this and played just with the sliders in CameraRaw. In most cases I don't touch the clarity-slider, but for these shots I added a bit of local-contrast. I really have to dive deeper into the art of image-processing.

Here's another one, this time gone through Silver Efex:

at iso 16000, do you know what's a star and what's a hot spot on the sensor? guess in black and white it all becomes stars

with NIK









I like the Nik-treated shiny skin shots the best - just brings out the shape of the plane really well. Also the hot air with Nik is very textured.

One day I'll do a road trip to the museum - I've been on their web page quite frequently.

I'm heading out to California this weekend and will be driving past the Strategic Air and Space museum west of Omaha. I hope to hit the area at a time I can visit.

Georg, love the fisheye starry skies.

Laura, the Nik versions of the planes are interesting, and catch my eye, but in the long term I prefer the non-Nik versions overall.

Curtis, the series from under the bridge really tell the story of a bridge, really enjoying them. The black & white landscaping shot it awesome.

Appreciate the comments and encouragement from my last couple of postings. I think Ray, Georg, hope I did not forget anyone.

One more from the air show, run through some Camera Raw magic (I make my own Nik filters)

D7000, 105mm f2.5 @f4.0 1/1250s iso 100. Cropped, split toned, post vignette, saturation changes, curves, plus some aggressive sharpening in Photoshop, as well as some multiply overlay of the image in itself.







Peter, love this shot and your magic PP. In my opinion it's the best image from your recent plane-series. The glossy look is a perfect match for the subject.


+1 Peter. Very nice image and pp work.

Played with 2 Fisheye-lenses at the Baltic Sea this late evening - it was cold, cold, cold (a stiff breeze came over the open sea directly from Ronnys beautiful country ;-).
I've never tried to shoot some stars before and while I'm not happy with the resulting images I could have done worse (tipping the tripod over, for instance).


the lights at the horizon are from ships or my Danish neighbors - D3s, ISO12800, 30sec 16/3.5 at f/5.6


Nice composition and star detail Georg.

looking east-north-east (Hi, Ronny ;-) - lot's of lights on the water and the shore - D3s, 30sec at ISO8000, 16/3.5 at f/5.6


I like these. Shooting at night is tough when you have man-made light in the area. For 30 second exposures, I am not seeing a lot of star trails, did you use something to keep the camera aligned with the stars?


30 seconds with the 16/3.5 will produce star trails - but they are tiny compared to these image sizes. It gets worse on the D800 if you want to use all the pixels. Anyways - at these small images sizes you can't see the trails and these images look great!

Georg, great night sky photographs!

I was playing around with some star shots over the weekend as well and wanted to post a couple that were converted in sep2.

In the first, there was quite a lot of ambient light from the city of Palm Desert. I captured fewer stars, but liked the way the light highlighted a stand of palm trees.

The second was shot to the north. There's a bit less light from town and the Little Dipper can be seen next to the palms.

As a novice in this type of photography, I'm amazed by the light these sensors can record at night.

Cheers, Jeff.

Roberto, nice to hear from you. I see the blankets on your beautiful picture - still no spring in Italy?



Thank you Georg, no spring in North Italy yet, the year before I had lunch outside in Venice on march 18.

I like the second one a lot
