this is something so ordinary to me as its on the path i take to the town centre of weybridge a commuter town of london.

its part of the 'weybridge land trust'. these are "ALLOTMENTS". strips of land rented by keen gardeners to grow flowers and veg. i haven't seen them on your continent where land is plentiful but i have seen them in europe. allotments were encouraged after the war to supplement food supplies and are now highly sought after and have a social life all of their own. strangely i'm being encouraged to put my name down on the waiting list.

my D40 is keeping an eye on the seasons passing over it.

18-55 @ 32mm
Program mode with spot metering.
1/250, f8, ISO 200

have to admit to using the horizon tool in elements on cropping this one.

I took this pic yesterday, of trees I must have walked past tens of times. Nikon D40X with Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3083/2336908943_e1275d7a2c_b.jpg

I tried metering off the sky for this pic, it worked really well for me if I set exposure compensation to +2/3. I still had to lighten the trees in photoshop mind. I also added the golden tinge with Color Efex (Bi-Color user defined filter plugin).

That particular day, the morning sunshine took on an ethereal golden colour and bathed everything in its glow, including these trees. Now dappled with molten gold, these trees suddenly become extraordinary…

I'm not new to Nikon or Nikonians, but I'm new to DSLRs. (Jim knows me well from the MF forum.) I decided to give the whole digital thing a shot and picked up a D40 this past Friday. In the spirit of this challenge, I headed off to the park and high school behind my house yesterday morning and shot this picture at the track.

I've had a blast so far with this little camera and I'm having a lot of fun with a new challenge...

Unfortunately the EXIF data is on my home computer, but it was shot with the 18-55 AFS kit lens at ISO 200 with -0.7 exposure compensation. (My apologies it it appears a bit over sharpened, I'm still adapting my workflow from scans.)

I look forward to spending a little time here on the D40/50/60 forum!

Everything is a subject. Every subject has a rhythm. To feel it is the raison d'être.
The photograph is a fixed moment of such a raison d'être, which lives on in itself.

It's all too easy to take my best friend for granted. She's always happy to see me be it in the morning or after a long day at the shop. She watches that which is ours in my absence and demands little. And she's always happy, loves to go outside, loves to come back inside. I do my best never to take her friendship and loyalty for granted but I'm merely a human... it happens. She's a three way mix, rescued several years ago. Her name is Gizmo.

Hey Gerry, nice shot here, but 2 second exposure??...how'd you stop the action of the water at 2 seconds? It looks like corn syrup or clear epoxy it's so clear.....well done....thanks for posting....

I forgot to note that I had to use the flash and that's probably why the water looks the way it does. I plan to try this again when I can just use the natural light coming through the window.

"Things we see everyday"

http://www.photocamel.com/gallery/data/500/dishes_drying_530x800.jpg

Literally, the dishes drying on the rack at my brother-in-law's 40th b-day party. Colors in the dish were spices on the counter behind it.

I was trying to demonstrate off camera flash to a relative. I used an SB-600 with an optical trigger. (See below for link). The SB-600 was set to (probably) between 1/32nd and 1/16th power, about 1-2 feet behind and left of the dish, triggered by the on camera flash - likely at 1/64th power.

Editing (done in iPhoto) limited to reducing the exposure, slight mod to brightness and contrast, and some sharpening.

Photo Info:

    Nikon D40
    Nikkor 18-200 @ 105mm
    Shutter 1/60
    f5.6
    ISO 200
    Flash


Caveats and disclaimers: This is my first photo submission anywhere, ever, so please be gentle. When I took the photo, I hadn't considered the thought of entering a contest with this shot - I'd do some things differently. But when I noticed the "Everyday things" contest, I thought "Gee, that pic I took of the dishes might work well". Yada yada yada...

Thanks for looking, and for any constructive comments,

    -Dan

Hey Martin, thanks for posting these two great shots, and for the link to your fantastic website. I just spent more than an hour there, and I'm thoroughly impressed. I urge everyone to visit it and check it out for themselves. There is a lot of useful information and techniques discussed as well as equipment reviews and real life stories and a wealth of useful info, presented in a light and enjoyable way, and of course many, many excellent images. What a labor of love...thanks again Martin- Greg

This is the parking lot from where i work. I shot this about 11pm on Easter Sunday night, after completing some late night server maintenance.

It was shot with my D40 and a Sigma 30mm 1.4 lens, set to f/5.0. ISO was set to 200, and exposure was 15 seconds. I used a cheapo mini-tripod, and the roof of my car as a platform.

edited to add: this is as-is from the camera, with no post-processing at all. White balance was on matrix, as well.

I see this thread has come alive! That's the way, people....So I have been fooling around with my 30 year old Nikkor 50mm 1.8, and last night my 12 year old, Sara, was in the completely dark living room illuminated only by her laptop computer, so I dialed up the iso, dialed down the shutter speed, opened the lens up and snapped this shot, (and many others until she threw me out...). Next time I'll bribe her to let me use a tripod...lol. A tad grainy, but smooth, cloned out her acne, (promised her I would), and VERY slightly tweaked saturation, unsharp mask, despeckled.......

Hi all,

One of the things that I see everyday are footprints. Recently, we all went to the snow country, and I saw out footprints, and I thought "ooohhhh....." Footprints in snow are really hard to shoot.

Details for both pix.
D-50, w/ 18-55 Nikkor lense
Shutter 1/500
Aperture f/11.0
ISO 200

The first pic is the raw jpeg, cropped but with no other processing done.

Click on image to view larger version


For this pic, same file, but I did some processing to bring out some detail.
Contrast = 88
Highlight = 51.6
Temp = -43.9

Hi all.

I hope this isn't the wrong forum to ask it, as it came up as a direct quote from above. I (at first) didn't believe this AWESOME portrait was a photo from one of our cameras, but some Photoshop creation. Obviously I must be wrong about that.

What is "HDR" and how did you do it? a Private PM or email is fine if its considered 'hijacking the thread' to get it answered publicly.

Thank you.
Regards,
Wayne

It looks like a painting because it is a photograph of a painting. My guess is it was done by the poster.

I live in a little town in Eastern Oregon called Prairie City. That mountain is less than a 5 minute drive for me. Every time I drive that road I see deer and wild turkeys on the road or just off it. If you are lucky you can catch wolves, bear, cougar, any number of birds of prey including bald eagles, prong horns, elk, we even get the odd moose, buffalo and wolverines.

We actually have all sorts of critters wandering into town from time to time, I've found coyote, deer and bobcat prints outside my fence line.

Here is another picture that I took at the same time as the mountain shot. This is a hawk the was circling directly above me.

Hey Everybody,

I'm totally new here, and this is my first post. I've only had my D40 for a few weeks now. I haven't done serious photography since I was on the "yearbook" staff some 30 years ago. Wow, a lot has changed.

It would be arrogant of me to call this good photography at this point, but it's a shot I liked. I swim competitively in the U.S. Masters program, and I took this photo of one of my teammates at a meet last weekend.

Gerry,

Great to be here. Never thought I'd take the plunge, but just got this idea in my head to try it. Turns out I like it a lot so far.

Time has been super precious lately and I may not be able to devote enough time to fully administer the Beatermat program. I still have the Beatermat sitting on my desk at home. When I get a chance, I will may try to solicit some help on the MF forum...

Lichen is something I see all the time but rarely stop to look closely. The colors and textures are worth a look, however. The symbiotic relationship between the fungus and algae allow the lichen to survive in places where neither species could otherwise exist. The fungus stores water and protects the algae and the algae does the photosynthesis work, feeding both organisms. Pretty cool!

I use Paint Shop Pro X. I have a script that resizes,adds a 1 pixel black border, then a 20 pixel white border, selects the the non-white area and adds a drop shadow. You should be able to emulate that in just about any decent photoshop-like program. The frame helps it pop a bit on the monitor.

Nice shot Bart! I had the same trouble with work flow at first and the whole post processing thing occasionally trips me up to. But it is fun to learn something new.

Have fun Bart with the D40 its a fun little camera and glad to see you over here.

I absolutely love that shot (maybe it's because I work in Power and Utilities sector)

Nice shot, that isn't the pond by the Oak Lawn Cemetery is it? I am from that area and visit quite often...now live about 45 min.'s from there in central CT. That almost looks like Bittersweet vine, stuff has a mind of it's own.....regards- Beat

This is a photo of the highway 16 in Alberta, Canada. My family "lives" in Vegreville, which is an hour outside of Edmonton, where we actually live / work / play, and highway 16 is the two-lane highway we take to get here and there.

These are not-unusual driving conditions during the winter.

In this case, it looks like this in the spring, too! This picture was taken on Monday, April 21, 2008, as northern Alberta was hit by blizzard conditions. The road warnings didn't stop us or other intrepid drivers from making the trek into college/work...

Yes, April.

Yes, white-out conditions and about 50m visibility.

D40x
1/640s at f5.6
150mm (courtesy of the 55-200 VR)
ISO 200
quick levels adj. in Lightroom, and a slight desaturation (snow is weirdly blue without a polarizing filter)

Taken from inside a jeep while my mom drove through the treacherous weather! This is, however, not unusual during the winter months (and in this case, spring) in Canada. I think it's reasonable to put it in the "things we see everyday" category. I hope you think so too!

Hi All,

I just got back from a weeks vacation in San Diego, taking pix of my kid. One afternoon, I looked out my hotel window and saw this stroller on the beach.

This particular picture spoke to me. I get a kind "Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner" vibe from it. Or maybe it was "take your stroller to the beach" day. One thing that I did not notice originally was the shoe in the pic. Later, the stroller disappeared without any commotion.

Details:
D-50 w/55-200mm Nikkor lense with VR = on
Shutter: 1/1600
Aperture: 5/5.6
ISO: 400
No processing

Take care,
