****PHOTO OF THE WEEK-2 May 2014-8 May 2014****
2 months ago

REMINDER: We have 5 votes each, please vote for your 5 favorite photos.

GUIDELINES:

  • Post one (1) photo per participant.
  • Categories: anything you wish - landscapes, portraits, birds, sports, abstract, your choice.
  • Your photo must be no older than 2 weeks from the date you submitted it. (* see explanation below)
  • Use any Nikon DX or FX camera.
  • This thread ends one week from the start at 12:00 PM Pacific Time (-8 GMT).
  • Next tread begins a few hours later

VOTING: Please remember to vote.

  • Vote for your 5 favourites by clicking the “Like” button beside the photos.
  • Voting begins anytime, ends one week from the start at 12:00 PM Pacific Time (-8 GMT)
  • Anyone may vote, even if you didn't post an image.

IMPORTANT NOTICE - Please read the 2 items below and follow the instructions - thanks.

  1. Please reply to the first(original) post and please replace the subject title with the title of your photograph.
  2. When you make a comment please do not re-post the person’s photo so that we don’t end up with multiple copies of the same image, it makes voting confusing.

OBJECTIVES:

The main objective of this event is to get people taking photos on a weekly basis and sharing their single best shot of the week with the rest of us, all in a spirit of light-hearted fun. It’s hoped that participation in this thread will foster community building among the participants, plus motivate us to keep improving our photography skills ranging from creative imagining, to shooting, to processing. The weekly voting is not intended to make this into a highly competitive “contest”, but to provide a sufficient level of motivation to maintain interest over the long term. If you have any questions they were probably addressed in the original discussion thread which you can find at this link:http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3479611

* EXPLANATION for eligible dates of photos:

Why a 2-week period for photos? I received some emails lately saying that a one week period was not long enough to find a subject and to do a good job on the shooting, processing and selection, they feel too rushed. Since the main objective of this challenge is to get us out taking photos on a regular basis rather than just posting old photos from our archives, there's no real difference between one week old photos and two week old photos, they're all new and fresh. Hopefully, this will give those who felt rushed a little more time to relax, enjoy and participate

Ocean Shores (Washington Coast).  It was a beautiful day with only intermittent showers.  I didn't even notice the ship entering Grays Harbor when the picture was taken (my eyesight is getting worse by the minute)...

Cool shot David. I hope to visit there sometime in my life. Just won't like the flying time... LOL.

Cheers to down under...

Say Hi to the Kangaroos for me. Such wonderful stuff you guys have there, but I think all parts of the world offer wonderful things. It amazes me all the wonderful creatures and the world (earth in general, trees, mountains, oceans, lakes, deserts, etc. - need to keep list short...) at what it offers us all. So much beauty. You just sometimes have to look and not be trapped in the little world that sometimes we live in.

Thanks Chuck!   Everyone should try to visit "Oz"... it's truly an amazing place!  The flying time, although daunting (especially to Western Australia), can be broken up with stop-overs in Hawaii etc...  With a daughter in Canada, and one in New Zealand, my wife and I have been "hemisphere hopping" for the past 8 years and gotten used to the long flight (but still don't relish it).

Dance routine with foul...
In reply to jimoyer, 2 months ago

Just for fun. Shot a soccer match using Df/80-400 afs and D610 /70-200vrII. Early in the match (5:15PM kickoff) the D610 had some at iso 900 but most were between 1600-3200 and at the end 6400. Just for fun and something different here

Still learning PP for the Df. I will probably use the D3S/300 2.8 w/TC and Df/70-200vrII for the next match   If they went back to 3:30 PM kickoffs I would use the D7100 for the first half .

Lovely capture Laurence!  I find it so hard not to blow out the reds..... you've done a masterful job of keeping them under control.  Visually very appealing...

Perfect timing tommiejeep!  I'm thinking of upgrading my D700 to a DF, especially for using my collection of old lenses.... you're making it very hard for me to control my GAS!
