    Wood and Metal on the Lake

    From my first outing with the D200 and 50 f/1.8:


    Wood and Metal on the Lake. McKinney, Texas. December 2005

  13. The Absurdity of Christmas in Las Vegas

    My wife and I where CF (child free) for this Christmas so we took a grand tour of South West USA, and since there is pretty much nothing else around we ended up in Las Vegas for Christmas (it is a good central point for lots of areas where I wantd to go shooting as well)

    Can anyone think of anything more absurd then spending Christmas in Vegas?

    I went out with the D2X and 17-55mm, put it at ISO 800 and shot this one (and several others handheld), at -1 exposure compensation, Fine JPG, and it struck me when I saw this challenge that it would bee a good geometry entry as well.

    Who says the D2X is noisy?

    This is the first time ive had a shot fit the topic during the time period. Cool.

  16. Snowflake Geometry

    I had a holiday gift sack from Sak's Fifth Avenue that was decorated with repros of some of Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley's amazing snowflake photos - white on a black background. The sack's handles were made out of the red cording. While playing around with the D2X's Multiple Exposure feature, I decided to see if I could make it look like the snowflakes were "falling" by moving the camera slightly downward during a 3-exposure burst. In this particular example it looked like one of the snowflakes had lifted off the plane of the background and gotten itself tangled up in the red cording.
