Wall Calender - February 2019

For 2019, I had created a wall calendar with a variety of animals - this bright smile is for February:

Giraffe, Namibia

Daughter stole my V1 so bought anotheroff eBay and put AF-P 70-300 DX VR on this morning. I love the look of V1 output.

Just returned last week from a trip to a small part of southern Utah. Took this photo from the Weeping Wall, at Zion National Park using the J5 and the 6.7-13mm wide angle lens, in  RAW, to get the broad dynamic range of the alcove and the scenery.

Nikon 1 J5. 6.7mm. f/3.5. ISO 160. 1/160s.

I still have so many photos to process perhaps I will add some more to this thread

Common Kingfisher.  V2/CX 70-300

Saw this guy at the end of a 12 mile hike.  Not sure what other system has this combination of portability and capability.

Cheers,

Russ

Excellent, Holger! No need for those superzooms, with worse image quality, unless you're in birding

Thansk for sharing

Wonderful! The J5 + 6.7-13 is unmatched when you consider size, weight, and image quality.

Thanks for sharing. Fell free to post more!

Thanks for sharing.

Sunset Panorama
4

I've been playing with stitching when I need something wider than 10mm.  This is a six image Panorama from a J5 with 11-27.5 handheld in portrait orientation.  I exposed the first image and used manual for the rest.  I did take a risk and allow autofocus for the series.  I used Lightroom Classic CC to combine the images.  I'm continually impressed how good software has become at stitching without artifacts.  The water might have been a challenge if it wasn't frozen.

Re: Sunset Panorama

Very nice. I got hooked on manual panoramas with my J2 when I was in the Adirondack Park in October. And, yes, it is absolutely incredible what Lr can do with faultless stitching. Looking forward to a waterfall workshop in June with my used (new to me) J5.

Nikon 1 J5, f/5, 1/1600 sec, ISO 160, 6.7-13mm lens at 7mm. Red Bluff Conservation Area, Utah. Posted to my Flickr account where it was selected for the Explore photo gallery feature. A little too much sharpening applied as I was learning new software.

Driving into the sunset

Caught the last glimpse of daylight when I left the office today:

6 lanes of traffic, 3 lanes moving slow... song playing in my head every time I see this cityscape
