    Nikon F series

    For years my favorite F camera was the F3, then I went on to the F4, F5, and finally the F6. I like the F6 which has all the features I like at a reduced size. But my favorite carry film camera is the FM3a. Less features but easy to use and carry with a medium zoom.

    The F5

    I have owned (and still own) every S,F and most N camera bodies. While the F5 is a very good camera I like the F6 better for its reduced size and its many features.

    These prove there is no such thing as a bad day to take photographs. Very nice series.

    EXIF data from 1977

    I remember the days of testing different films, different lenses and different lighting. Then when I upgraded to a new camera, starting the test all over again. Luckily Nikon usually upgraded their cameras about every 8-10 years. But then they would upgrade lenses more often. Then more test...

    Thank you for your reply. There is a section of Zion called the Narrows I want to visit at that time I just was not prepared for a 16 mile hike through water. Maybe next time.

    FM3a - Finally!

    The FM3a is the best of the series. You should enjoy it.

    Seriously thinking...

    The FM/FE cameras have always been my favorite. I think I have owned and used every one in that series.

    Great Smoky Mountains Natl Park

    The Smoky provided great images. Just imagine what #2 photo would look like after this week's rain. Your last photo is my favorite.

    I made the same photos and decided to hang the B&W on my home. The texture of the valley looks so good in B&W. Both your photos capture the beauty of the valley.

    Signing prints?

    I don't think a signature should be on the image. If there is a boarder then sign on the boarder. I always mount and mat my prints then title and sign the mat boarder.

    B&W image is at its best when there is texture. Very nice image.

    FM3a - Finally!

    The FM/FE series has been my favorite and the FM3a is the ultimate. When that camera came out Nikon also came out with their 40mm which made a nice package.

    Lens Storage

    Thanks all for your comments. I usually store lenses which ever way they fit best in a travel bag or case and easy to remove. My concern is based on something I recall reading many year ago which has to do with oil in the inside of the lens that might end up on the inside of a glass element...

    Hillsboro Airshow Blue Angels...

    Very nice series. I especially like #6.

    Lens Storage

    What is the best way to store lenses out side of their box, up on the mount end, on the front end or on its side?

    Moraine Lake in Valley of 10 Peaks

    I like both images. The second image seem to pull me into the mountain. Very good. Thank you for sharing.

    Roan Mountain Tennessee

    I like #2 and #7. It would be an interesting image to compress #7 so the barn is larger and include the stone fence. Very nice composition.

    Chained ...

    Excellent! There is nothing like B&W image to display mood.

    Mountain Storm

    I like the cloud formations in images 1 & 3 and the landscape image in 3 is very striking.

    Test Photos from North Carolina

    Yes that could make a stronger image. I often want to use every thing I capture.

    Test Photos from North Carolina

    Thank you. That is one of my favorites. It is not your normal sharp and clear image we see in today's digital photography but it represents what is there naturally.

    Ghost of a tree hugger

    The image is very creative and well done.

    Boss wants a new setup for outdoor photography (Alaska)... What should I recommend?

    I would go with the D750. The glass depends on you distance. I prefer the 24-70 f2.8 but if you like more range then the 28-300 VRII may work for you at a lower cost.

    Thanks Mike. Humming birds just doin't stand still for a picture. This was one of a few attempts at getting a good image under low light.

    St. Louis Trip...

    I like #10 (I am old school). It would have been nice if Mother Nature gave you a lightning storm at the same time.

    Never sell a classic lens (scanned)

    I have often said that quality camera come and go but quality lens go on for ever. Your lens suports that statement.

    Cadair Idris sunrise

    Very nice reflections. I think #3 is the best due to the color variations and contrast.

    Senior Portrait at the Beach

    The series of the girl is very good. I like #5 the best. In #5 the background complements her without producing any distraction. In addition the lighting and position is very good.

    Evening park ... in HDR

    I like the colors resulting from HDR more like a painting than a photograph and I like your composition very much.

    She is a trooper

    B&W might also look good, however, I like that touch of red in what is other wise a B&W image.
  42. Bill


    Nice color combinations. What nature can do is amazing. And you did a nice job in capturing it.

    Charleston, South Carolina

    That is what B&W is all about, tone and texture. Very nice image.

    little miss Freya

    The outfit and the back ground colors all fit together. Did you decide on the outfit first for the back ground or the other way around? You have a professional model in the making.

    Frost Crystals

    Mike, I like the way it opens up to the left and is concentrated low to the right. Isn't nature wonderful.

    Critique VERY new to landscape

    In landscapes you work with the light you have, however, if you are familiar with location then you can pick the light you want to use. Flare is often a problem with wide lenses which is why I tighten my shots by zooming in. That said, the flare in you image adds interest.
