Tree Trimming
3

I'm surprised to be the first to post for October! Especially since I shot almost nothing in September.

This is my wife, Carol, trimming branches from one of the trees in our back yard. She is a very reluctant subject, so the few shots I have of her over the 55 years we've been together come mostly from candids like this. I took this from inside, through the patio door glass, while she was distracted working in her garden.

V3, CX 70-300.

Hey everyone!

Haven't posted in a while, but I'm still rocking my V1 for everything I shoot. For the vast majority of the last couple of months, my recently acquired FT1 + 50mm/1.8G have been stuck to the front of my V1.

Just wanted to share a couple of picures for this month's thread, edited to personal taste:

Feel free to C&C!

Jerusalem Artichoke flower ( and bee )

- a sunflower of sorts.  The last veg plant to flower in the garden.

Re: Tree Trimming

Great shot - and it reminded me to get our long reach loppers out and sort out our shrubbery.

Really vibrant colours and nice composition.  Great lighting.

Re: This month with your Nikon 1 - October 2021

Nice photos and you are getting good separation with the 50/1.8. I haven’t tried that lens with a V for some reason but it is obviously a really good tele.

At the risk of being boring - the V1 is a gem of a camera.

Thanks.

It took me a few years into photography to learn that pulling a zoom back from the max focal length could improve a composition!

What was the weather like when you took these? There's an interesting hazy feel to them with an unusual color tint.

A mink

An american mink, an invasive species here in Europe. Cute nevertheless. He just came walking towards me in the same path I was taking, then he jumped to the river.

Re: A mink

Great shot and looking at your Flickr page you certainly are getting the best out of your J5 - some lovely images.

Re: A mink

Thank you! The J5 is certainly a joy  to carry around.

Hey Rich!

The warmer tint comes from PP in LR. I'm not very good at editing yet, but I try to go for moods (nostalgic in this case.)

Here's an unedited pic from that very same day that perfectly illustrastes the hazy feel you see (you were quite right!)

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I wholeheartedly agree! I know that saying this in the N1 forum might sound like a bit of an echo chamber, but if there's any truth to the N1 cameras, and especially with regard to the V1, is that if you spend enough time with them, you come to realize they are so much more than a glorified point-and-shoot (read that somewhere).

As for the 50mm/f1.8 with the FT1, it's a combo that brings me so much joy when I shoot. An EFL of 135 @ 1.8. It gets great separation (even at f/6.3).

Looking up into the canopy ( tilting LCD essential )

Pretty much like this all year round - a 35 year old tree we planted.

Re: Paperbark Maple ( Acer Griseum )

Neat stuff. I haven't seen that species of tree in a long time.

V2 6.7-13
1

String Lake Wyoming (if I remember correctly, could be Leigh Lake). V2 6.7-13

In this trip I used mostly 6.7-13 on V2 with rare 70-300 AFP with FT1.

Sadly, the best pictures were with my wife cellphone due to 13 mm Eq lens ultrawide lens and better automatic HDR...

ps. I truly believe photography as a hobby is defined by the pleasure you get from the activity. It does not matter what equipment or results. I am a hobbyist and a very awful photographer (snapshooter is a better name) but a very happy one.

Very nice capture of your wife at work. Why do you say "while she was distracted working in hergarden"? Do you each have your own garden?

I like them both. What is this building in the first one, Looks like a restaurant, but closed? Where is it?

Nice composition in the second, with excellent subject isolation.

I like the special color in both pictures. Why is it special, I can't say...
