"June Unofficial Photo post"


Memphis, US
          

Okay as we said we would do this one as BW. I hope our mod can pin this at the top.

This time since we are going to vote at the end of the month give each photo a title, plus post one photo per post only so the voting will be easy and no confusion. You may post additional photos but please use a seperate post and new title. Also put the title by itself at the top so it is easy to read.

Also you must use a D80 but the BW conversion can be either is the post processing phase or the D80's BW mode. Sepia is also considred BW for this post purposes.

At the end of the month we will have a vote to see the top 3. No prizes but some pride and fun.

Hope everyone enjoys!

Jim

Aww, shucks, James. I wanted to take a shot of the zebra at the zoo and crop it to eliminate all but B & W.

And I guess this rules out a referee's shirt?

Just joking, of course. Let's post some neat stuff, gang!

I took this a month or so ago, not specifically with the intent of b&w conversion. It works pretty well though, I think. Converted from RAW in CaptureNX. Photograph shot in Angus, Scotland.

I like this one Zorro! Very nice image. Give it a "title" in the post so people will be able to vote for it at the end of the month.

Nice pic. I thought we were only supposed to post photos taken during June. Am I (not surprisingly) wrong?

Photo Title: SUNSPOT

Here's one I took this morning. It was taken in color and then PP to B/W in photoshop. Since I am so new at this, I used just "auto" settings.

OH! I see the pic in the my post. COOL!

Garry, I really like this photo, you should convert it to B&W or sepia so that it's eligible for the contest. The lighting and the tones are great.

Enjoy shooting!

I took this one of my son, the original color photo is
awsome, but the B&W looks good too! He's 7, blue eyes and
red hair.

I used powertoys free image resizer
and free HP Imagezone (bundled with my PC)
for the B&W conversion.

One more from me This was taken at an outdoor "Old Steam Engine" museum near us. It's really very interesting to see how folks used to get around... old trains, trucks, tractors, farm equipment. But a bit scarey too! Taken in color and PP in PSCS.

If I'm allowed a second entrry ?



The TT is a race against the clock so its crucial that you start exactly on your allotted start time.
Here we see John McGuinness on the start line for the 600cc TT race.
The starter watches the clock and will tap him on the shoulder to indicate it his time to get started.

... beginning to see the light.

Excellent - A Gibson Les Paul. Nice Picture.

The guitar screams "Pick me up and play me!"

The patterns in the pillow to the left (Paisley?) contradict and contrast the cutout curve on the Les Paul Guitar. The other sofa patterns, while less subtle, add to the picture.

I like it! Very Nice! I see the effect you went after!

Years ago, I played music. I had a Gibson Cherry Sunburst Hummingbird Acoustic guitar and a Fender Precision Bass. The Les Paul pickups were the best - hot stuff, but smooth, like Hot Damn Cinammon Schnapps! The only thing near as hot were the Fender Stratocaster pickups - but they weren't as creamy smooth as the Les Paul pickups - the Strats were a tad too bright. Eddie Van Halen could make a Strat sound like a Les Paul, though.

"RE: June Unofficial Photo post "Monochrome/BW""


Colorado Springs, US
          

Title: Preacher

Well, I will have to say that when I first read this post I was not sure what to think? I have NEVER played with B&W in any of my photography.

So when I started looking at some photos I really did not know what to look for. I was surprised to find that most of the, what I felt were good/great color, color photos I converted look bad in B&W. I then started looking at some, not so great (color) photos and started converting them. There is a huge difference!

Anyway, thanks Jim for taking me out of my comfort zone: Here is my very first black & white conversion...

Nikon D80
28-200mm @ 200mm
1/800sec at f/5.6
Shutter Priority, Center-weighted meter @ ISO 100

I was in S mode and alternating from shooting flying jets at 1/1000s with +1 exposure comp. and trying to maintain f/8 or so to shooting on the ground like this at 1/320 so. I needed ISO200 for the high shutter speed so when I quickly slowed down the shutter speed I got the small aperture. I guess I could have used auto ISO but didn’t think of it at the time.

I normally don’t go above f/11 with this lens.

Title: Into the Mist

I recropped and converted this from a color version posted earlier in another forum. I caught these guys as the sun came up and a steamy mist on the lake. Used 18-200 VR at 170mm; Spot metering; 1/100 @f5.6; ISO 640 and +1.33EV. I think I actually like the B&W conversion better than the color.

Somewhat appropriately, I took this recently at the annual Memphis "Sunset Symphony" event looking across the river.
Info: 18-200VR at 200mm; 1/13 @f11; ISO 100. Added warming tone and sepia in PP. Hopefully, it won't lose too much when compressed to the 100KB limit here.

Title: Curbside Delights

Okay...my last post for this thread...I found these cuties at the local Town square during a weekly "Sunset Symphony" music event. It was difficult to isolate them from the throngs of people around them. Added sepia toning to try to give it a sense of ageless innocence found in children in any generation! A larger color version can be viewed on my Picasa gallery at the following link:

Great shot. I like it better than the full color version. I agree with your choice of the sepia tone and that ageless innocence. Is there nothing better than a dish of ice cream and listening to good music, no matter how old you are?

Peter on the gentleman shot for example you have it sized 240x299 you could have made this 500x800 or 450x750 etc this would enlarge the zize. On very detailed shots I fine I can go 600x400 and less detail 800x500 or so to keep it under the 100kb size limit.

These sizes are just examples you can use dufferent sizes and ratios but I was using an example. My BW shot of my Nikon FE2 is 800x800. Hope this helps.

Peter,

I shoot JPEG Large Fine only. I Post Process with Picasa, then use Photowatermark Professional (paid software), and then I use something called JPEG Resizer 2.1 - a free program - to get the pictures down to 100k to post in forums or 250k to post on my Nikonians Gallery. It is a neat, fast program and it is free. It is a stand alone executable, so no big huge install. It takes a little playing to learn it, but it works like a champ.

Download it here at: http://www.virtualzone.de/resizer/

Hope this helps.

"Hibiscus #2"


Luling, US
          

Here's Hibiscus #2 - another close-up shot of the stamen and stigma of the hibiscus flower.

This is a story of a gift that keeps on giving. For Christmas, I gave both of my older daughters and their fiances each a gift card to Home Depot. My oldest daugther (25 years old) and her fiance have created a very nice garden and done some landscaping at their new house using the gift card. This morning she called to say that they had a cally lily bloom. They were both so proud of their flower creation - almost as if it were their first child. They asked me to come take pictures. Unfortunately, the cally lily was a tad bit withered from the hot sun (it is about 97 degrees here in South Louisiana today) when I got there, so I shot the Hibiscus flower.

"Curves"

One of my first pictures with my D80 back in March and I was trying to be a bit arty. Not sure if this is worthy but looking at it in BW made it a lot more interesting. The tennis court behind is a very bright red and green which was a big distraction before the conversion. I should have taken the net down so there wasn't the white line in the background and the horizon is not very straight. I'm not selling this one very well.

Title: Unknown yet Remembered

Okay, I lied when I said I wasn't going to post any more here! Can't help it. This thread has really gotten me into trying B&W conversions. I posted some other images in another forum from a series of Memorial Day sunrise shots at the local Veterans Cemetery. I found this one and liked the lines. Increased the contrast and blacked out the horizon in PP. Oh..I also intentionally cropped to avoid any names on the markers being readable. 18-200VR @ 200mm 1/13 @ f13, ISO 100.

Jeff,

You were kind enough to comment on the lines in my "Curves" submission but this image is outstanding and really thought provoking.

Nice touch in getting rid of the horizon - I never would have thought of that. I'm glad you didn't keep your promise to not post any more!

Dave

Thanks for the comment, Rena, but let me add this - I've seen your work and it is pretty dang good. Right now, I'm learning just like everybody else, I'm an avid photography enthusiast, and it is a good means of escape from my real job. I've learned a lot here at Nikonians.

"Mister Buddy"

My dog, Buddy. He was laying on the swing watching me take pictures in the back yard. Something caught his attention, and he perked up.

Buddy is a year and a half old, weighs about 70 lbs., and he is a good dog. He's half Border Collie and half Standard Poodle, and he's very hairy with a tail that curls all the way up in a circle. He also loves spending the late evenings in the swing watching the lizards and squirrels.

Thanks, Jeff. It was almost as if he was in a stare down with me - who was going to blink first.

I've had this feeder up for well over a year, and I have about a dozen squirrels that visit it. The feeder is on a tree just off the side of my covered deck. The squirrels have gotten accustomed to me now, and they get mad if I let it get empty for too long. They let me get within 6 feet of them while they are eating.

It's hilarious to watch the birds, who wait patiently for the squirrels to get thier fill, so they can sneak in and grab something to eat.

I use a Squirrel Food mix that has a few whole peanuts, so when I fill it, the first come squirrels will dig for the peanuts. They love them. I have considered just filling it one Saturday with whole peanuts only, and then just watch and shoot a few pictures.

I can almost identify each individual squirrel now. A few of the females are pregnant or nursing, and I even have a one-eyed male - looks like he lost his right eye in a fight.

The food mix also has corn kernels, but the squirrels only eat a small portion of the kernel - the heart - and then drop the rest on the ground. The big birds - blue jays and blackbirds - get the rest of the kernel.

It is also fun to watch the squirrels try to run each other off the feeder to get a spot on the throne of nutrition.

Something else I want to try - whole pecans in the shell. I noticed this years ago when I had a squirrel feeder. The squirrels will take a whole shell pecan, run off to a branch with it, lick it and taste it all over. If they detect it is cracked by licking and tasting, they will eat it right there. If the pecan isn't cracked, they will run to the ground with it and go bury it to dig up later. They never bury them in the same spot, and they always manage to find what they buried - I guess by smell.

Ok, here is my entry into this fun game. I am a non-professional who just enjoys taking pictures with my D80. As testimony to that fact I took the enclosed picture using "FULL AUTO" -- a setting that I know real photographers don't use. But I was just experimenting to see why that is the case and I like the picture.

Mode: Full Auto
Metering Mode: Matrix
Aperture: f/8

Thanks Peter for your comment!

In Apple's Aperture in the adjustments HUD you have several options for monochrome adjustments. Namely:
Monochrome Mixer,
Color Monochrome, and
Sepia Tone.
In Monochrome Mixer one has the option of adjusting the filters in the red, green and blue channel. I gave in my post the percentages that I used in each of these channels.

I hope that this makes sense to you. If not, give me a holler and I will try to do better.

"One-Eyed Squirrel Mating"


Luling, US
          

"One-Eyed Squirrel Mating"

OK - here's something you don't see everyday - A One-Eyed Squirrel Mating.

The male - which if you look closely - is missing his right eye. I am assuming you will figure out which one the male is. He makes out alright, as this picture demonstrates. I have nicknamed him Claude - after a guy at work who has one eye - the real Claude at work is proud to have a squirrel nicknamed after him.

Anyway, I watched as he chased her all over the tree. I realized what was going on. I ran inside and got the camera (D80) and put on the Tamron 200-500mm and grabbed the monopod.

It was overcast, so I cranked the ISO up. I caught this shot as they were about 70 feet up the tree. She must have been terrified - she is hanging on for dear life.

Claude the Squirrel is a regular visitor to my feeder, and his right eye is but a slit. He must have lost it in a fight. He feeds with his good eye toward the tree, and my dog, Buddy, can sneak up on him close before Claude relaizes Buddy is there. Great fun to watch. Buddy can't get Claude, because I have a fence between the tree where the feeder is and the deck where Buddy is.

I guess I should name the female squirrel Claudette?

It's at the long end of the lens, and not as sharp as the good glass, and on a monopod, and at ISO 800, but it's worth a look and a laugh. Even a one-eyed squirrel can get lucky.

Looks like he's whispering sweet nothings to her - "Back That Thing Up!"

These are all very good. My vote goes to the cemetary shot.

I wanted to add one more prior to month end but I am little ashamed this was the best I could do. I had the 70-300 lens on at a local park in Leesburg, VA when I noticed the old farm house. I blew the highlights on all the shots I took and was not able to recover the detail near the flag.

Title: The Singer

Looking through all these great posts I did not notice a lot of "portraits", so thought I would post this one before the assignment ended. I don't know who she is, but she performed outdoors in our little town square a couple weeks ago and wowed everybody. A lovely girl with a golden voice to match her hair! I kept playing with the conversion and finally used a modified sepia tone with lots of contrast (and some serious cropping!) to try to get something different in a high-key kind of image.
Info: 18-200 at 400 ISO; 1/80 @ f5.6

"Up, Up and Away"

I forgot about the contest until today. I got married one week ago today and with all that was going on, I forgot to submit an entry for the fun of it. Just got back from Yosemite and got some nice pics for a beginner. I thought this one was at least a little creative so I used Capture NX to convert to B&W and threw it out there. I had a lot of fun taking pics at Yosemite. The camera is still so new to me but I'm having more fun every day with it. Drives me nuts trying to figure out how to make the pics small enough to be eligible for upload.

Goldberg,

I use a program called JPEG Resizer to resize pictures for upload here at Nikonians. It's a stand alone executable, small, and free.

Download it here: http://www.virtualzone.de/files/?product=resizer
