Those are some great air show shots, Kadath! I particularly like the one with the Coast Guard chopper and the person hanging off the side.


#2642

Thanks! There’s a whole series of those with them out the door down to hitting the water if you flip to that link above.


#2643

I only brought my beat up Alpha 6000 to Animal Kingdom. Trying to get sharp and well lit pics on that safari bus hitting 30mph is fricking impossible. Really wish I brought my D500 and 70-300 instead. But… The best camera is what you have with you, made the best of it.

Yeah, pretty happy with the combo of Nikon D500 and 70-300 VR, all shots from the ‘club’ level. Security doesn’t blink an eye bringing this combo in and it shoots under the lights at 1/640th a second at 3200 ISO like it was daylight. Can’t wait to try it during a real daytime game and see how little noise there will be in those shots.

I really dug the Flicker reduction thing too. Lots more consistent shot to shot.

The 70-300 does great panos too =)

From my vacation at the North Sea in Büsum, Germany.


#2646

Beautiful!


#2647

It’s ArtPrize time again here in Grand Rapids. Spent a couple of afternoons looking at some of the hundreds of entries. Probably 70-80% of it just kinda bounces off me, but that other 20-30% is amazing. (And I’m sure other people’s 20-30% is different than mine!) I took some pictures which are mostly terrible due to a combination of my (lack of) skill and use of a camera phone, but they can still give you an idea of what’s out there.

Blog posts with some comments on various pieces: Part 1, Part 2

Here’s a couple of my favorites (bigger versions in that album link above):

Meanwhile, I took some shots when the haunted house my wife works at was filming a quick commercial. This one was my favorite:

Bah srry, was trying to make a thin post, forgot spoiler doesn’t roll stuff up here any more.


#2651

Great pics Sam! You can’t go wrong with birds in flight.

If you want to make the posts thin, use the “Hide Details” option, not the spoiler option.


#2652

Thanks!

Is there BBcode for that?


#2653

You select it using the little cogwheel when you’re composing, then select Hide Details.


#2654

Gotcha, thanks

Beautiful, Simon!


#2657

Simon you would really like the pictures from a friend of mine.

Here’s a recent one:


#2658

That’s either a worryingly large bee, or quite a macro lens.


#2659

I checked out the album - they are magnificent pictures!
More practice needed!


#2660

Wow, they really are! Thanks for the link.
