* This month with your Nikon 1 - March 2017 *
3

With more than 40 contributions and replies in February, I believe that the interest in this kind of thread is high enough to start a second round for March. So still without any new N1 gear on the horizon, let's continue work with what we have and get the most out of it.

The rules are 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.

Cheers,
Holger

A hint of spring
7

Group of crocus - Nikon 1 V3 / FT-1 / Nikon FX 70~200/4

This started off about 20 years ago when I planted a few crocus bulbs into my city lawn. Carefully avoiding to mow the lawn until late May, the crocusses have multiplied and early spring has become very colourful. Though my wife still claims that this was just an excuse for me to avoid the garden work...

Re: A hint of spring

This is a very nice picture. A bit noisy when viewed at full size, but personally, I don't care at all about noise here.

Thanks for sharing.

Colors of sugar water in Mumbai

Shot during a trip to Mumbai in Aug 2016. Enough sugar in this stall to give a few hundred people a sugar high.

Sunset in Scotland

Taken on one of the lochs, I think it's Loch Lochy, while I was canoeing across Scotland on the Caledonian Canal for the first time.

Male mallard.

No ice on our pond today, so we had visitors. One of first shots with my new 70-300 CX; an improvement for using with V3 vs. my 70-300 FX. RAW processed with DxO Pro and PRIME noise reduction.

Re: Colors of sugar water in Mumbai

Would be hard to think of any other camera producing the colors any better than this.

Was this shot jpg or raw and how was it edited?

Re: Colors of sugar water in Mumbai

Hi,

I shot the image in RAW, and adjusted it in Lightroom CC. Following were the salient edits:

WB - sunny

Highlights - lowered

Shadows - raised

Whites and Blacks adjusted

Clarity and Vibrance punched up

I first edited an image with a person in it so as not to mess up skin tones, then applied the same adjustments to the picture I posted. The image with the juice guy in it is below.

Three from today. For Blue Tits I often prefer 1/5000 sec to freeze movement. C&C welcome.

Thought I'd share an astrophotography photo that I stacked with my V1 with FT-1 adapted 300mm F4 AF-D lens. Was also my first time stacking too. I used an iOptron Skytracker pro for tracking

This is all from my backyard with light pollution skies

I shot 32 exposures at 15 seconds each for a total of 8 minutes , 1600 iso, stacked with DeepSkyStacker, processed with StarTools and then photoshop for noise

Wow! Very nice. Is that what is called the golden hour?

The picture is a bit small, but well...
