  1. Thanks, everyone. This little place is a novelty. I camped out in back of SUV right there and several cars pulled up to see it even in the dark. I guess people have read about it. I'm curious how the time exp shot will turn out. I think that will motivate me to shoot the rest of the roll (it's 645 film, a 15 shot roll, w/ only 2 shots taken). Attached is a pic of the inside. Somewhat basic!, but I forgot to bring Easter flowers myself
  2. A small little church on the outskirts of Yuma, Arizona. Also took a 1.5 hour exp on film, but need to shoot the rest of the roll.
  3. Thanks Dallas, I do see those artifacts up there now. I may be able to remove them. This is downtown Wash DC btw on a quiet Sunday morning (one of the advantages of cooler weather, less people walking around).
  4. Comments welcome. GB (ps - I've no idea what that phrase means)
  5. Very nice... how come I never get animals to act like this? (probably because I don't sit out there for days and days..)
  6. Thanks for the comments thus far. I agree that the red is a little loud and steals attention from the rest of the scene, but seems sad to lose the Key West text. Too bad there wasn't a white sign in there. That DXO correction software did wonders! It doesn't look much softer either, which is also great. But still don't know which way to go on this one ... It's a tweener. G
  7. In Key West. Comments welcome. I'm thinking this one needs a crop, as tried here, but not sure what needs to be in the picture? I sort of like the Key West sign on the right, to place it. GB
  8. Beats me guys. It was meant to be a philosophical question.
  9. Comments welcome. GB
  10. Hey, who's been trashing my D700 !?! I've had mine for 3-4 years, and besides the occasional annoying battery-not-making-contact issue that my old D200 also had, its never given me a problem. The flash shoe mount handles my SB-800 fine. I am getting a little rust around the pop up flash area, ... nothing serious. A friend's trying to convince to buy his D800 (he got an 810), but I haven't seen any reason to do so yet. The D700 seems to have been ahead of its time. My D700 has 2, 5, 10, and I believe 20 sec self timer. It's shutter delay function's time is locked at 2 sec. I use the latter on occasion when on tripod at slower shutters. I use the 2-sec self timer all the time on the tripod because I'm usually too lazy to connect my remote shutter trigger doohickey (or misplace it in my bag). I'm all for sharper images but have never really gotten into mirror lock up. I think a photographer's DNA is set the first two years of their journey, and never used it.
  11. I don't know Dallas... it's a tough market out there in the "better than a phone, but not professional" market. If I were them I'd stick w/ the professional market and abandoned the consumer riff raff. The Japanese seem to be notoriously slow to admit when things are going south and to adapt. But like Ann says, from concept to market could take years; many things can change during that time... They prob made the right decision to cut their DL loses. Nikon and Canon are known for their technical savvy and durability.. they're the Toyoda and Honda of cameras. The Japanese have already lost the TV market and have major competition w/ cars: will they lose the camera market one day too? hope not.
  12. I think perhaps a single additional forum, for 'manufacturer news' or related, that covers all announcements like the Nikon one mentioned above might work? As for the DLs, I think Nikon's idea was DOA There will be high end cameras / DSLRs, cell phone cameras (Apples, Samsungs, ..), and maybe a few niche point-and-shoots like underwater doohickeys, incredibly powerful single lens zoom cameras (100x monsters), etc.
  13. How about a monthly challenge? I think weekly is too quick; unless you're between jobs that's a lot like work, and most people won't be able to do it. Could go mid month to mid month, i.e. 15 Feb - 15 March? G
  14. Since it's the dead of winter and the days are shorts/nights are long, how about this: Not to make good of the issue, but what about Depression as a topic? Shots of people, animals (if that's doable), even streets, towns, or cities. GB
  15. Nice angle and composition
