Nikon Wednesday Pic 2010: #18

Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels wide for in-line viewing, and please keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc).

Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Wednesday threads are right here. Remember: only one image each week!

A happy Wednesday to everyone.

You know how your spouse always says to you, "Why do you really need to lug a camera bag when we're just trudging to a coffee shop through boring suburbia?" On Saturday, I got to say to her, "Because you never know when we'll cross a grassy spot along a row of townhouse shops, and run into three Maasai. That's why."

Is at least some of your Nikon gear always close at hand? Has that turned out to be a good habit? Share a photo!

D300 at ISO 200 and 1/1600th with a 17-55/2.8 at f/2.8 and 30mm.

Thanks to all who commented on my surf photo last week. Much appreciated.

I didn’t take any photos this week. Instead I worked on this one taken last year in Cambodia of a fisherman at Kompong Khleang. I was never happy with the balance in the photo and cropped it several times during the year without satisfaction. I finally printed a copy and showed it to my wife. She commented that she really liked the bright green reflection in the water, to the fisherman’s left. I realized that was the item that had been distracting my eye from the fisherman, the element that made the photo seem unbalanced. I desaturated the reflection and recropped it. The focus is now squarely on the fisherman furrowing his brow, looking over his shoulder at something happening out of the frame.

Nikon D300 & Sigma 30mm f 1.4

Exposure: on “P” 1/200 f5.6 with compensation – 2/3 stops, ISO 200

It rained heavily here for a few days last week through the weekend and finally stopped late Sunday afternoon. So I took a ride to get some fresh air and even though the light was terrible, I grabbed my camera and fast “normal” lens along for the ride. While leaving the park I noticed the symmetry in this scene and took a shot. It sort of works, for me.

Greetings Nikon Users. Thanks to everyone for you comments last week. This week's contribution was taken last Sunday as I did the Bluebonnet Tour near Ennis, Texas. The dog is not mine, but it did a lovely pose. Image taken with a Nikon D80, 70-300mm lens, f/5.6, 1/1000.

A recent picture of the kids at the Art Museum. The "floor" they are looking at is held up by small human figures with upturned hands.

Thanks to all who commented on my post last Wednesday. Today's picture is taken at the same place as the last. Although I took some pictures last Saturday, but had not had time to process them or sort them.

How do you beat an opponent in a marking contest that is almost twice your size? Jump twice as high! An exceptional leap by a much smaller opponent spoiled this near certain marking opportunity against his much taller opponent.

Camera: Nikon D300

Lens: AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200 mm f/2.8G IF-ED

Settings: 70 mm, 1/1000 sec, f/2.8 and ISO 720 (Manual, hand held, VR off)

Greetings from Seattle! That's a heckuva lead in for this thread, Matt. Great images, so far.
Thank you to Alpo, Louis, Dieter, Benjamin, Jeanne, Linda (fellow Gleek!), Doug, Martin and Jamie for taking the time to comment on my image last week.

Lil...I hope this week finds you in better health. Your situation sounds extremely frustrating.

My contribution this week is from my son's first soccer game. A team of 4 year olds...so much fun. A few of these kids really know the game already. Here is our future Sounder, Ziggy...shot with my painfully slow lens, that actually held up pretty well for the event.
