"September photo challenge end of summer time post"


Memphis, US
          

Lets see your best summertime photoposts as we approach the end of summer(for those that it is not summer maybe you can use last years).

So lets see what those mighty D40's and D50's can and have done.

Jim

This was not taken with a D50 but my D80 but I wanted to show my daughter using my D50 for summer fun so a D50 is in the picture.

I like the boat photo, very colorful. I see you shot that with the Tokina 12-24, how do you like that lens? Have you used or worked with the Nikkor one? Oh and do the boats float up with the tide or is this a lake where the water level stays the same all the time?

Cheers~

Hi Ted,

Lough Mask is an inland lake in County Mayo, Ireland, and so it's not tidal. Nearest town to the picture is Balinrobe, if you're interested.

The Tokina 12-24 is a wonderful lens. A bit prone to CA at the short end, wide open. A lot of fun. It seemed to be on my D50 nearly all the time, but hasn't yet been on my D80 (only had the D80 5 days...), I'm still exploring the 18-135's capabilities. No, I haven't had the privilege of the Nikkor 12-24.

Cheers for now,
Chris

Thanks for the tip, hope I'll get it right this time...

This is a crazy one, notice the up-side-down in the center of the photo...

GREAT shot with the canoes! The wide angle gives the sky that *epic* look (with the slight distortion) as the clouds MAKE the shot. Great job.

Edited again: with right size now.


Edited: How do I keep the image size shown small? I got the file size down below 100kb, but the image size just running off the page... Sorry, first time trying to upload a photo...



What would summer be without roller coaster? I've never been on one in my life...never will be!

It sure is tough to scale down to 100kb...pixelated... See it better at My Pictures

Hey there~

In addition to reducing the overall file size you need to also 're-size' the photo; look for something like 640x480 or 800x600. In Photoshop when I export it will give me a few options to re-size. Nice photo, Some of these modern coasters are very crazy, upside down and inside out...I agree you can have em'.

The attached photo was taken last week-end at a SC Park using a D50 camera with a 70-300 mm VR lens. Settings include auto white balance, ISO=450, focal length = 300. The park was built last year as a tennis facility. It surrounds a pond with walking trails, birds (eg, hawks, geese, and ducks), dragonflies, and lots of flowering plants.

Timidly creeping out of lurkerdom with my brand new D40 to submit:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v188/Crimsicle/misc/desertedplanes.jpg

At a local festival this past weekend, I was drawn to the bright colors on this kiddie ride. When I got closer and saw the condition they were in, it just made me sad. Seeing as how there were no children in or near them, it seemed to really say "end of summer" to me.

Welcome to the light! Just kidding...I like this shot a lot. The first thing that hit me was how crisp the shot was (seems really sharp), then color and finally composition and the verbiness about it. To me it did tell the story summer is somewhat over. It fits very well with this post! Job well done IMO.

I took this one around sunset and increased the brightness in editing to make the colors pop. Not a big fan of the powerlines visible near the top of photo but I think it turned out nice regardless.

Thanks Lisa!

I should explain that's my wife in the pic and she's shouldering her spotting scope, not a camera, but I think it worked for a farewell to summer photography theme.

We took a nice cool couple of weeks for a vacation in Colorado. It was great to get out of the Arizona heat (summer is not over here until the end of October.) This is a sculpture of the Air Force Academy's mascot, the falcon. The clouds were building over the mountains waiting until the end of the day to let go with a thunderstorm. It was clear overhead but I caught their reflection in the windows.

My wife and I spent a week in Victoria, BC and of course we had to go to Butchart Gardens on Saturday night for the fireworks. I've tried shooting fireworks before but this is the first time I've been successful.

Wow, amazing shots of the fireworks! I have been trying to take some, but have never been successful. But i wrote down what you took it at, next time, I will try those (i was trying some absurd 5 second shutter because i figure, well, its dark out..) I got some "decent" ones, but not that great.

That's what I love about digital over film, instant feedback. The first shots were too dark, so I just kept increasing the shutter speed until I got images. I took probably 40 shots and maybe have one other that's OK, but this one was the best.

Vacation and the summer is almost over! Let's take one last walk on the beach. This is my contribution to the topic taken with my D50 and my new 18-200mm VR lens. It was taken on Sunset Beach, NC, my home territory.

How about a fun photo? Kind of a benchmark when summer is over for us is when the pool closes for the season. While this is not the literal 'Last Swim', it's very close to it!

Here is one I grabbed with my D50 at Panama City Beach a week ago. Although I took the shot fairly early (~8am), this place would normally be crowded with folks..

All -

Although I have lots of beach images from this summer and last, I thought I'd toss in one from the All-American game....

Hope you enjoy...I've enjoyed all of the other submissions...

Great point! Wouldn't be summer without baseball (here in the states any-hoo). Was that strike three? The old adage "keep your eye on the ball" might help the youngster next time round (Those who can't do, teach...)

Hi GT -

Honestly don't remember whether or not it was strike three (may well have been...there are lots of 'strike threes' in Little League ), but you're spot on with the eye on the ball thing....

Have a great rest of the weekend -

Great topic. : ) Here is a shot I just took yesterday with my new D40:


<http://www.willamette.edu/~ncordova/pix/fountain.jpg>

EXIF: Nikon D40, ISO 200, 55mm, 1/1000, f/7.1, handheld, no flash

(weird exposure settings, but I was playing around with various settings).

Thanks,

Scampi
