It's unbelievable to see how many people ask to be put on internet..
Taken yesterday night at this rock festival:
All taken with D200 + 50 F1.4 + SB600

Due to the problems in downloading, I resized from Original to Large the size.

Excellent street pics, my friend, but they require a HUGE download to vieew them... about 35MB. Maybe that's why you haven't gotten any responses.

I finally had the patience to wait them to load. The problem is that you posted original sized images, it seems. That means that are much bigger than anybody's monitor (even the 30" ones! :eek:). To post on the Internet, it is customary and good form to post pictures at a pixel size that matches most folks' monitors. That's why it's a good idea to size them at 900 pixels or less in the largest dimension, factoring in other things on the screen around the image, etc... Even if the images appear resized when viewed in your browser (because the browser realizes they are way too big and presents them in a more suitable form), they still are downloaded at full size, and that's a huge waste of bandwidth... and people's time. Sorry.

Yes apparently people like to have their photos taken ( at least when they're partying :wink: ).

Like the others said it really takes a long time to load , almost too much for one's patience . . .

Nicla, her younger sister. She's quite tricky... if you know "monopoli" well, once I helped her when she needed money to go by.. at least she could, she left me with debt and escaped away with a better player !!!! She's a shark, while playing...

Differently from her sister, she's always quite silent and introverted but also natural in her poses.

- little flavoured bread donuts with cheese and "cherry tomatoes" and aside once again the little mozzarellE (plural form) used for the bonbons and the various types of ham. I stopped here but my wife then prepared
Carrot-flavoured lasagne (much "lighter" than standard one, but equally good)
as first course
Scaloppine meat with porcini mushrooms as main course
Grilled,sliced and filled potatoes at her way, with bacon or ham and a bit of butter, rosemary and sage
Strawberry cake, coffee.. that, just to know, here we drink THIS size (any other "dispatched" for Italian Espresso is just a fake..
