*** This month with your Nikon 1 - February 2017 ***

My newest gear acquisition led me over to the Sony forum. They maintain a quite inspiring series of posts: a weekly thread where forum members can show their work.

I think this could be great feature on our Nikon 1 forum as well. With new gear well below the horizon, we can work with what we have and get the most out of it.

The rules would be simple:

  1. Add your contribution by responding to this first message in this topic.
  2. Change the subject of your message, then embed your image into the reply with whatever you’d like to say about it.
  3. If you want criticism/critique (C&C) or technique feedback, say so. It’s generally assumed that you want general feedback, but direct requests make it clearer.

The title of this thread shouldn't discourage you from posting older pictures. It might be anything that you found again in your archives, or that you are currently working on.

If this thread takes off, I'll be happy to start a new one for March, or even on a weekly basis if the response is really great.

Cheers,
Holger

I'm starting off with an older picture from my archives. It was one of my favourites from 2015, which I had re-worked over the weekend with a new software version. The results weren't any better, so I'll post the old version again:

Hello!

Good idea! More than a decade ago I used to host a Weekly Closeup thread in the Oly SLR forum (was the second host, and it is still running in warmer months, carried on in generation +x). Maybe (hopefully) this one will have a similar lifespan!

A cold, low light snap at the zoo (winter tour with the kids), Dezember 2016:

V1 and VS1 70-210/2.8-4.0 (third iteration); had to process this on mobile device for posting here, but I hope it is not too off in terms of processing...

Looking forward to the other entries!

Best,

Alex

Have been to both towns several times and have taken shots of the Yaquina Head lighthouse as well.  Just had a bit of fun on a sunny Sunday in January.

What a good variety you have shared so far - from Art to Arbat, Oxford to Oregon, wildlife diversities, beach portraits and moonshine, the chance to practice cyrillic reading abilities ("Delikatessen", hah, I know about food!), and a city that I haven't recognized (@Wu Jiaqiu: is that Budapest?).

I realized that I have manouvered myself into a corner: have been playing with my new Sony toy but got no presentable results from my N1 stuff in the past weeks. I'm now taking along both, the Sony with an adapted Nikon 50 AIS, and the N1 V3 with the 10/2.8.

The following required a wide-angle so it was time for the V3:

I'm completely baffled.
What is being presented to the group here that they don't already have?
