    Added a couple more. More to come by the end of the day, hopefully.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    OK, OK, I know it has been WAY overdone, but I just had to go and do it anyway. I rented a 90mm tilt shift lens, and took a bunch of "model" shots. And believe me, I know a lot of these are both visually as well as thematically weak, so I might take a few down when I shoot more, but I at least have to get something up.

    Glenn's Office:

    I really wanted to get higher up on the mountain to get this shot, so you could see the runways more clearly (hence the "X" - the two runways crossing) but as you can probably see in the image, the rain was a coming, and I had to get down fast.

    Just added two here.



    ValleyFan, that lens looks like a blast! What a cool effect. And I like your additions, Love2Laugh.

    That tilt-shift lens is really cool. I've admired that effect for quite a while. It's amazing how you can make things that are life-sized feel miniature in an image.

    What I find amazing is that it is a fairly technical visual cue that is happening which is fooling you into thinking it is smaller than it is. For those who don't know, normally with lenses there is a point in space if when you focus your lens on it, all objects beyond that point will be in a reasonable amount of focus, that is the hyperfocal distance. The specific distance is dependent on lens length and what aperture you are shooting at. So when you look at a picture, your brain builds a model of how big objects are by judging the out of focus areas and where they fall. If there is a very narrow depth of field, the object is most likely reasonably close, if there is a very deep depth of field, the object is further off in the distance. By tilting you focal plane, you can throw the foreground and background out of focus, even though they are beyond the hyperfocal distance for the aperture and lens length you are shooting. And it is absolutely fascinating to me that even knowing nothing about what is going on and why it looks small, this fools the brain fairly easily. I guess it makes sense because your eye is just a lens, so it exhibits the same depth of field issues.

    To FBJ, Nikon just released a new Perspective Control lens, so now they have an 80mm and a 24mm PC lens. I highly recommend renting, even if it isn't at all something you are interested in buying because they are really fun lenses to play with.

    I have been meaning to do a round of commenting, but I keep on getting interrupted, but hopefully sooner rather than later. I don't want to be a slacker

    I've added a couple of more that I found while enduring the torrential downpour that put a damper on Tip A King.

    I'll hopefully find some time in the next day or so to critique y'all.

    I am X-tremely happy to say I saw some x's at Toyota Sports Center today and captured them without a struggle.

    Back to the beach again for me, only because it was a beautiful afternoon yesterday and by the time I got done with work there was some awsome golden light. The first one is my favorite. Unfortunately since I work near the beach I've kinda gotten caught in a beach sunset thing. I hope to get out of town this weekend, which will give me the chance to perhaps do something different.

    These were all taken with the D300 with the 18-200 VR lens.


    X Kids - 18mm, f11, 1/160th sec, ISO-320. No retouching.



    X Gull - 130mm, f/9, 1/320th sec, ISO-320. No retouching.



    Washed Away - 75mm, f/11, 1/500 sec, ISO-320. No retouching.



    Stand of Trees - Yosemite



    Dear in the Woods - Yosemite


    Morning Ice - Yosemite


    Winter Limbs - Yosemite


    Half Dome Avalanch - Yosemite (There's gotta be an X in there somewhere)

    Some truly impressive shots by everyone, but rinkrat and PuckMonkey have stolen the show. REALLY loving all your shots, guys!
