Post them up. Let's see the best of your D800 library thus far. Not just ones you think are good. Let's see your FAVORITES. Here are four landscapes from my recent trip that I like best.

Alex, excellent images. I think you just scared me away from sending any of my pictures
But I will try to find/make some this week.

Amazing pictures, Alex!

I'll steer clear of posting landscapes so as not to embarrass myself

Instead, I offer up these as my favorites because each possess various combinations of elements (sharpness, resolution, color, detail) that I truly believe speak to the quality of the D800 and which I could never get with my D200. These images were reduced to fit within Nikonian uploading rules, but I think the pictures still do the D800 justice.

Only had the camera less than 3 weeks, these are my favourites so far. If it ever stops raining in the UK perhaps I'll get a few more

Thanks everyone. I'm really enjoying your posts and work. Keep it up!

My recent trip to Yellowstone/Tetons really showed me just what a fantastic camera we have. The above images were all taken with a tripod except for the portrait of the yellow Aspens. Good technique really does get rewarded with this camera and poor technique magnified.

Looking forward to seeing more of your favorite shots.

Bob,

It is one of my favorites, too. It was taken on the "17 Mile Drive" outside Monterey, CA and Carmel, CA (near the Pebble Beach Golf Course). The tree on the right is the iconic "Lone Cypress" which is the emblem of the 17 Mile Mile Drive.

My wife and I took the drive in the morning and the weather was very overcast with coastal clouds. We had a late lunch in Carmel and the sun came out. So, we hopped in the car and headed back to the Lone Cypress to find great late afternoon light.

I'm an airplane guy, so my favorites have to include a couple. The first two are old Douglas DC-3s. The feline is Grizzy the cat. What I consider interesting about it, though, is that it is taken at ISO 25600. Multiple crappy light sources in our TV room, but it's one of my favorites. I can't believe the technology in this camera.

I guess this thread really indicates that people with D800s go to really nice places and are able to capture that special moment. Really good stuff!!!
Here is my effort. Early morning in Canadian Rockies just east of Jasper.

Brilliant and birds and other wildlife really test the metal of the D800/E. As said, the feather detail is just about as good as it gets. I think I need to upgrade my VRI version of my 70-200mm and buy the TCIII

Thanks for sharing.

Hi all
Havent posted images before hope this works. I have had my D800 since July I have found it a steep learning curve from D300 (still a way to go) but I love it. Pictures taken at a production of The Cheery Orchard at Network Theatre (under Waterloo station). See more www.paul-h-lunnon.co.uk

I only took up bird and wildlife photography 3 years ago. I have been waiting for the D400 to replace my D7000, but have now decided I've waited long enough. I've only had the D800 3 weeks, but already I have decided, apart from feeble fps, it will do everything the D7000 does and possibly the D400 could too, apart from fps. All is not lost fps wise, as I now also have the MB-D12 grip and on DX mode the D800 will do 6 fps, plenty for me.

If the sun ever appears in the UK again and the day stops looking like the night, I will look forward to getting out and about to do some more D800 work.

Fabulous truck shot! I love realistic-looking HDR shots like this one. I like the versatility of HDR technique, but the cartoonish and impressionistic examples of HDRs never seem to appeal to me.

Marsha & Hawk Eyes,

Thanks! Hawk Eyes is right, it's nice to see actual photographs instead of photographs of paper. Both have a place in this forum, but good balance between technical and creative is great.

When I posted my three theatre pictures earlier today I never exspected I would be in such exaulted company. After reading D800 post after post re problems that poor owners had suffered it is great to see what our cameras are capable of and spurs me on to do more. Thank you all for boosting my confidence in my purchase I knew I had made the right decision and this has now confirmed it and shows me what I have to aspire to. I wanted to coment on your photographs but there are just to many great images so I gave up, "pictures are better than words".
Thank you fellow Nikonians

Hi Alex,

All of the images posted are great. I have a D800E and have been practicing with it before I go down to ANPAT in October. My images are not quite up to the rest but I am attaching an image of the mountains to the east of Mt. Ranier from a few weeks ago. It was taken with a 24 mm f/1.4G on a tripod with f/1.4 @ 1/4000 around 4:30 in the afternoon.

With wide angle lenses it's easy to create great vistas that aren't quite as you remember them. Often the problem is there is no foreground interest. Getting down lower and getting a closeup of a couple of those wildflowers with the same scene in the background would be a major improvement.

It looks like we will have several D800/D800e cameras on ANPAT. It will be a great opportunity to share experiences about dealing with the high resolution and the large files.

Here's my D800e offering from today. This was one of several small runoff paths below a large waterfall in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The light was wrong for a compelling picture of the waterfall, so I turned around and found this shot.

Hi Gary,

I agree with you completely -- that particular shot would certainly improve with some foreground interest. I am more than happy however with the camera in general and look forward to improving my own technique as time passes and I get out more.

Thanks a bunch,

Alex started this post out with favorites 'suitable for framing' and gorgeous shots of the mountains. Throughout there are some gorgeous landscape shots. Since I haven't been to the mountains lately, will have to content myself with some shots around TX.

These are some that I like for different reasons. All happen to be taken with the 70-300mm. I'm not sure any of these are suitable for framing, but I would welcome constructive comments, a la Gary's very helpful comments.

You try and you try. I like this one because I thought it just came out right. I have some BIF shots, but this is still my favorite.

I like this one because it exemplifies the DR - what you can pull out of the shadows with the D800

Finally, this one's fun because of the resolution - I didn't even see the dangling legs when the helicopter flew by...

Once again, yet another good match a D800 + 70-300. The bird image is excellent with lots of detail. I see it was taken at 300mm, which usually softens the image with the 70-300mm. My experience of that lens was excellent up to 250mm, but your copy seems fine at maximum.

<<I'm not sure any of these are suitable for framing, but I would welcome constructive comments>>

I have looked at your image and just darkened the mid tones and to my eye it looks better for it. I think it would make an excellent framed image.

Thanks, Richard for your response. I had not heard about 70-300 softness at the long end. I very commonly run it out to maximum, because, of course, I would like to have 600mm.

Also appreciate your comment on mid tones, I'll look into that. I'm still a novice at PP.

Hey Tom,

That's some gorgeous mountain scenery. I actually like the way you framed it and used a large aperture. It gives it a bit of a dreamy feel with the foreground being out of focus. Is that what you were going for? Before I saw the photo, I had only read the EXIF data and saw you shot it at f/1.4 which is unusual for a tripod landscape shot.

Many thanks for compliments much appreciated most of the work I do is in low light hence the decision to invest in the D800. In fact I have to think hard when I am out in daylight. The work displayed on this post has been wonderfull.

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the comments. I am still trying to get used to the D800E and what I can do with it. When I took that picture I was experimenting with a few things. It wasn't possible for me to include a foreground in that particular image so I thought about trying for something that would not emphasize the foreground and chose a large aperture. The camera is really an amazing tool.

I recall a well-known landscape photog in the northwest who carried "foreground objects" in the trunk of his car…

Where this was shot, almost every shot had skulls — one, two, or twenty — in the shot!

I like it. The D800 forum seems to get bogged down with perceived problems and doesn't tout the real attributes of D800 ownership. Perhaps we can do a monthly photo contest with various themes but all photos must be shot with a D800 (so it's a D800 forum thread).

Perhaps not the best image, but taken under difficult circumstances. Lately, it doesn't want to stop raining in the UK and the light is particularly atrocious today. The Squirrel is eating peanuts in a shaded area of the garden with a dark background. To get an exceptable speed with my Sigma 50-500mm f4.5-6.3 OS lenses I had to increase ISO to 3200. The target was 90ft away.

What surprised me was the lack of high ISO noise and the out of camera sharpness. However, sharpness has been increased by amount 69 radius 0.9. This is the first image I've taken at ISO3200 and it exceeds the results of my D700 and not surprisingly my D7000.

Great shots Everyone. I should have thought of it sooner but lets include our shooting data (shutter speed, focal length, f-stop, iso, and any other interesting details that 'made' the shot).

I've posted quite a few in the Sports and Macro forums (fora?) so I thought I'd post some shots of my grandkids having fun in the pool. I love the tonal quality of the D800. All with 70-200 VR1, all hand held.

Dan

I have similar thoughts to you.

Though practice is important in photography, a photographer has to see a picture and take it. Part of that is also luck in being there at a time where there is a real Kodak moment as opposed to a general photo.

Also imagination in croping on the electronic dark room can help, but this is related to an earlier point of mine - seeing a picture and taking it.

I am new to the forum, and the D800. After seeing these photos, I am pleased with the D800's performance. (And my decision to buy one.) To all the photographers using it, I say Wow! I have some work to do. I hope to contribute some of my own. It will be a tough act to follow.

My wife and I were in Michigan's Upper Peninsula for the fall colors. We were on the path to view a waterfall. The only view of the waterfall was from above, access to the base of the fall was completely fenced off, the sun was at the wrong angle, etc. Needless to say the shots of the waterfall were a complete bust.

My wife saved the day though. She had wandered a few feet off the asphalt path and spotted this little flower in some plants that were so dry they were brittle. The flower was only about 1/2" (12mm) across. This is by far my favorite shot of the day.

Absolutely superb capture and exalts that a long zoom can be adapted for macro work. I like using my AF-S 300mm f4 for the same reason.

No many available where I am with just the ipad but here is one from 2 days ago while walking in the park with a friend. A girl asked me to take a photo of her with her D90 and 50mm 1/8D. I did but the backlight was so strong that the fill flash did not brighten her face so I pulled out my D800 with sb900 from the bag. Not 5 minutes later another girl asks me to take a photo with her point and shoot but used the D800 instead. This time the harsh light was on her face so used the flash again which darkened the background for isolation

Yes, Richard, I think we are losing important parts of the culture, like feeling comfortable meeting strangers and expecting, and getting only a pleasant conversation. When in the US, I do not use a camera at all in public places unless people are not around, particularly if children are around.
When I first got my D90 I was visiting back in the US and my next door neighbor kid asked me to take photos of his trick skateboarding routine at the nearest skateboard park. About 20 shots into it, the police came and interrogated me in the back of a squad car for 30 minutes and made me give them my memory card because he was 17. The two cops said I was lucky, since they could have held me for 72 hours. I had owned a home there a block away for 20 years and they said since they did not know me, their assumption is, by policy, to think I was up to no-good. Someone called the police because an adult was taking photos of a kid doing extreme tricks on a skateboard.

What a difference in attitude here in Russia. If someone approaches another, it is assumed they have something to say, not that there is ill-intent. In my case, she approached me with the very common request to take her photo with her own camera. My D800 and lenses were hidden in my backpack. If I do take a photo of someone I always approach them to show it to them and they always thank ME for shooting, even if they did not expect a copy. It seems that this society is less uptight and relaxed by far than back in the US and in the UK where fear of the extremely rare impacts every aspect of life. Shooting a couple photos of some nice, smart happy young ladies is the norm on a brief stroll in the park, I only posted these because they were downloaded to my iPad and I sent them from that while sitting in a cafe. Socializing with and meeting strangers everyday is one of the real pleasures of living here.

No, she is very shy, and I am surprised she asked me to take the photo in the first place. She is only 18 and the girl in the upper photo is 29. When out and about, if I take a photo with someone in it, I offer it to them. They usually want one and I give them a card that says "Amateur Photographer" and name, email and phone number. I wait for them to contact me because I could never keep all the numbers and contact information straight of the people I meet every day.

<< They usually want one and I give them a card that says "Amateur Photographer" and name, email and phone number.>>

Yes, I carry one too. I got stopped in Chester during the holiday season and was asked not to photograph by a jobsworth street warden! As I was discussing in a polite manner what I actually could and could not do with my camera a police officer arrived. He apologised to me, explained to the jobsworth and told me to enjoy my day.

I also take photo's of the local junior football teams, but can only capture the local teams in the goal mouth or practicing. If playing, I would have to be CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) by every other team playing and there's 44 in the league. I hate it and feel most awkward when I take my camera out. Wish I lived in London or one of the big cities where because of tourism I would be more accepted. That's the trouble with living in a small minded backwater in a paranoid country. Sadly, I am restricted to Landscape and wildlife. This is why I love using my camera abroad and St Petersburg was a joy for a photographer.

I envy your freedom Stan.

"I envy your freedom Stan." That is really an ironic idea, only 20 years after the fall of the Iron Curtain, we envy the personal freedom of those on the other side. That sense of personal freedom, that manifests itself every day is the most important single reason I am here. It is sad I can't feel normal back home
Seems like we are hijacking the thread. I'll post some of my Scotland photos from 3-4 days after getting the D800.
To get back on track here is a photo that convinced me that it is a special camera, the 11th image I took with it. It is facing into the sun which I cropped out, The shadows cast by Doune Castle were black. I added +4ev of shadow lift and there was very little noise in the resulting detail of the stone work. No DSLR could do that before the D800. Also, the shot was up under the castle with a lot of perspective distortion as expected from the 24mm so I messed with free transforms in Photoshop CS6 to correct most of the distortion caused by shooting up with a wide angle. Not a great image but really cool demo of what shadow detail there is lurking in deep shadows.

Here is another one that benefited from lifting very dark shadows. This is inside the castle looking out to dark side of the castle. There was no detail seen of the interior, just the window light in the original file which is 1/125 sec; f/4.5; ISO 640 24mm. I was able to lift the shadows so be able to see the detail of the stone work, which is more than I could do with my unaided eye!

Nice example. The details you were able to extract from the stone are remarkable.

As for the conversation about photography and paranoia, I think gender really does matter in uptight countries like the U.S. I travel frequently alone and find that people have a friendly curiosity when I pull my serious gear. All kinds of people come up to speak to me, couples...elderly gents...elderly ladies....kids....passing strangers. Flashing people a friendly, shy smile seems to help too. I find showing off my camera is a great way to break the language barrier when traveling abroad. Granted, I am also 5'1" and about as threatening as a kitten, but regardless, I think women photographers enjoy many more freedoms and a great deal of latitude when photographing in public. About the only area I feel I have to limit myself is taking pictures in and around sensitive transportation centers (airports, train stations, subways). But, it those cases, I know that a brown person taking such photo may raise a ton of security flags. It's unfortunate because here in Chicago we have elevated subway tracks in the downtown/city center area that would be great subjects for long-exposure or HDR shots.

Sadly, no single men come up to chat. I think a serious camera in the hands of a women might be a bit intimidating for most men.

Here are examples of my latest reasons for loving my D800...

The images just get better! Stan, the sharpness of the brickwork on the Scottish images is terrific and the dark's internally very well captured.

I agree, it is not the camera but men are wary of being thought of as aggressive or as stalkers. Men who do not wish to offend, the nice guys stay away, because they have learned that a surprising percentage of random encounters turn out badly with the woman becoming angry or hostile. Even 5% of encounters turn out badly is lesson enough. The rude, unaware and actual aggressive men, don't care what the woman thinks and goes ahead and that further sets the impression that "men" are that way because the only ones to approach ARE aggressive and not nice.
It was not always that way, when I was a young boy, my mom would box my ears if a woman was passed and I did not formally greet her and wish her a pleasant day. Now, doing that would get one arrested or at least detained so the negative reaction has trained 2 generations of men to ignore women in casual situations or actively avoid social contact. The genders are at war with each other,each accusing the other for being unapproachable.
Just the opposite social norms are in place here. Women go out of their way to signal that they are approachable and friendly so men feel confident in doing so. Aggressive men are weeded out quickly and ignored and not used as an excuse to judge all men.
Same with men assuming that less polite reactions are individual, rare and not characteristic of the female of the species.
Take as an example of the coveted phone number. In the west men seek it as a symbol of acceptance and women protect it as if it is their bank account access code and both play games to exchange it.
Here its viewed as simple another identification like a first name, and has no emotional import. Ask any woman or man for their phone number, and they will give it, even if they do not like you. But you have to give them a reason to not like you since most people are very non-judgemental.
I am older yet, there is no stigma attached to it so I can and have walked up to just about any woman I have wished to, and asked them for conversation over tea or a drink and had them accept if I was polite and seemed to have something interesting to say.
Interesting respectful conversation, good humor and decent social skills are well appreciated.
I am more wary of the age differences than the woman I meet so when I go dancing, a couple times a week until 6am, I am frequently the only man on the dance floor most of the night, the only one over 30y.o. and only one who does not approach women/girls. But by 2am, I have gotten to meet them all, usually invited to join all girl parties(birthday or other celebrations etc) possibly because I seem to be there for the fun, not to find a girl, and always have something interesting to talk about the topic they are discussing.
Almost all my close friends for years here are young women in their 20s to about 32 mainly because they are the ones with similar pursuits and activities. I like being around them because they are optimistic, well educated, well traveled, good humored and rather attractive, fit and stylish.

Yes, I do have a lot of fun;>)

My "being watched" experience unfolded during a lunch break in downtown Greensboro, North Carolina. I enjoyed imaging the architectural details of nearby buildings and engaging in street photography for an hour each day when one day two plainclothes cops arrived at my office and interrogated me at length about my intended use of the images I was making (I also conducted my own photo business then). It was demanded that I come to the police station and provide a report of my where-abouts and what I was taking pictures of each day including ALL of my paid photo assignments and submit the report every week.
I had to do that for more than a year whether I was at a local park, at lunch, out of town for a wedding and anywhere else I happened to take my Nikons. What was done with these reports I was never told.
One day I simply stopped sending in the reports and have not heard from anyone since.

I really enjoy seeing all of the great photos that have been posted. After being on a wait list for 3 1/2 months finally received my D800E and went on an 8 mile hike in the N. Cascades last weekend to see what the camera could do. I am blown away by the dynamic range and quality of detail in the shadows. Out of habit I took quite a few bracketed shots for HDR but during post processing discovered I didn't really need to resort to the HDR process.

Handheld (didn't want to carry the tripod this trip). I had a 30 lb pack so I only carried my 28-300 mm f/3.5-5.6. Looking forward to testing the camera with my 2.8's around home this weekend.

Fall reflections: 1/160 sec at f/11, ISO 400, 90 mm
Log - Bulldogpaddle: 1/500 sec at f/11, ISO 400, 170 mm

I keep visiting this thread to see the images only.

In my opinion, there is nothing between the beautiful images and the D800. It blows my mind how much credit is given to the camera, rather than to the eye behind the tool, the location and the timing.

The ONLY thing so far I love about the D800 is, the fact the images are captured at 36MP. The ability to crop is great. That's it.

I got great images from the D7000 (yes, DX, so what) and the Sony A55. The D800 was a huge investment and WITH it I capture great images, but I don't give the credit to the camera. It is only a tool.

I don't post process any of my images. If I did, I probably could have use a simpler camera to capture the same images, then massage them to make reality "better".

Regardless: great captures by the posters.

I agree that the camera doesn't make the photographer. However, I'm able to do things with my D800 that my D300 could never do. The dynamic range improvement is dramatic.

One of the reasons users are fawning over the D800 is that every subsystem works in such harmony that we have not seen before.
The metering is the best I've seen, the color is the best Nikon I have seen, the AF sticks after initial acquisition like Velcro, the DR is really evident and tolerate, the files are extremely flexible yet for my tastes, post processing is hardly done or needed.

Sure, the res grabs the headlines but the real world difference is how well everything works together in a balanced system, like nothing I have seen before. The D7000 is capable of very good images, absolutely but it helps to have some luck, as with the D800 it is a matter of routine.
When I first got the camera, before even reading the manual, I went to Scotland and surprised myself on how few images I took, one per scene I was interested in.
The only ones not kept were those which had composition problems, none were technically poor. Any conditions thrown at it, the D800 shined, dark unlit castle interiors, harsh backlit scenes, darting diving waterfowl, candid street shots at midnight handheld etc, all well exposed, very low noise, good color excellent WB with mixed sources.
A recent wedding here was shot in natural light, with flash, at night, daylight, glaring sun, in a park, a dark forest and wedding venue and all those light mixtures, no post adjustment of WB, no exposure problems. I used a D7000 on the shoot also, some turned out really good as expected but no where near as consistent as the 1-frame gets from the D800.
That is why I love the D800, others have their reasons but they DO have reasons.

I have similar experiences Stan. I bought Thom's book and before I could even digest 10% of it took myself off to Cornwall to flex the D800 muscles.

People got cross with me over my journey with the D7000 and my comment that other Nikon's "worked out of the box". Never did I have to work so hard to master that camera. The D800 arrived and within a day it felt so right, did as it was told and yes, the AF really does stick like velcro. The dynamic range is extraordinary and the colour rendering is just unbelievable. I could so easily run out of expletives to describe it.

I didn't think that my D700 could have it's title of "my best ever camera" taken from it, but I was so wrong. The D800 rocks. Mind you I've just bought a Nikon V1 and for it's size that camera boxes above its weight to!

Here is my favorite shot from my first day out shooting with the D800. The scene is Black Lake in Oceana County Michigan. Shot at ISO 100, f/11 and a shutter of 1/200. Lens used is a 24-120mm at 35mm.

Thanks.

I love the atmosphere of the first one! A secondary title might be "Invasion of the windmills"...the mist gives the feeling of a post-apocalyptic event in which mankind has been wiped out...that or I just need to get some rest

Very nice, really like the balance of interest above and below the horizon so makes me step back to take it all in, the way an image should be viewed.
It is such a joy to shoot at low ISO with this camera because the rewards are greater than in any other camera in retained tone range.

Here are a few handheld, one a crop using a 70-200 at 1/200 of a detail of local church in the late evening and the other is a 36mm shot of a local park when I first got the camera home from buying it in California. I was concerned about hand holding and in these cases I think, ever with slow SS, it is pretty forgiving.
The next one is my friend's wedding and the 4th is catching my friend and her new husband in the ray of strong light from an overhead skylight. I purposely tried to over expose the bright light to get the faces brighter while giving a glow to the bright silhouette edges.

Every image I've seen on this thread has been terrific, but a favorite of the series had to arrive and this is it for me. As a bird fanatic I appreciate this image. The clarity and feather details with the wide aperture make this image special

Thanks Richard, but I am surprised by how muted and dull they all look after squeezing them down to 250k from the full sized images, I guess I have to learn how to downsize to appropriate ratios. The shots of my friend's wedding look downright blurry and dull compared to the large prints I had done as their wedding set.
I just tried to downsize another image from the first 30 frames taken with the D800, this one uses a different downsize method to see it is any better. This is of a wildflower growing from the walls of the ruins of Inchamhome Priory in the middle of Lake of Menteith in Scotland, hand held, 70-200 1/200 on a dark cloudy, rainy day

Nice capture. I must admit I thought the images were sharp as a knife and wonder if it's your browser. Just re-looked and they certainly look fine to me. I can't imagine the church being sharper.

I check all my RAW images in Lightroom4 and if any really appeal I leave them at full resolution. The others I choose to keep I downsize to 16MP. If I want web images I retain the resolution of 240 ppi and resize the longest edge to 860 px and then save in sRGB at above 150Kb. My web site help team informed me that saving below 150kb can lead to odd and poor looking images. So I guess you are doing about the same as I do except your image size is larger.

Richard.

Thanks Richard, I will try the higher res resample, to 240, mine are lower, 72-100 to get under 300kb. Keeping the res higher and size lower might make the difference. I just tried viewing these 100ppi downsamples on my iPAD which has over 250ppi and they do look better but no where as nice as viewing the larger images shrunk down by the viewer on the iPAD so time to experiment or just link to larger heavier files. The two last shots of Luda, are intentionally blurred however for a dreamy romantic look, the originals are too sharp for a wedding book. But the glow from the highlights are untouched, no post processing.
Time for a larger monitor if I am going to be evaluating super res D800 images sooc.

It's not just the camera in the case of the D800, it's the cost of upgrading the peripherals to manage it adequately and to get the best out of the images. I had to buy a new Windows 7 PC with 32GB RAM and improved Nvidia graphics

The images still look better on my iPad too!

I've been shooting this camera since about march. Its a mean machine. massive images, massive detail.

And these are from Dragon Con this year. We did some night shooting and the enlargements from this camera are like butter! And these small images DO NOT do them justice. We blow images like this up to 36x48 for theater marque images and they ROCK!

Some great shots..

I hope mine are of a similar standard.

Had my D800 for a week now, but mixture of work, and weather conditions have meant I have had little use of it so far.

But blue skies are forecast for this weekend, and a trip to a air plane museum is planned.

Keep up the good work

Here are a couple shots I recently shot that in real life are outstanding considering I shot the darker one after dark.I shot it with an old Sigma 135mm F2.8 ais lens. The exposure was 4 seconds at f16 the other was shot with a Sigma 24-60 F2.8. I have printed both at 24x36 and you can view them at what ever distance you would like. One thing I'm really liking is that the shadows contain so much color and sharpness when lightened.

These are a few of the first pictures I took with my D800. I was testing to see how it would do with focus and how it would do hand-held. Pictures were taken in Banff National Park, Alberta.

This is a picture I come back to and browse in it looking at the detail. It is a three shot pano with my D800E. 100 mm f2 Zeiss macro @ f8, 1/200, ISO 400. It is from an old dune looking into a dune slack on the Lincolshire coast. In the slack is the densest flowering I have ever seen of the Southern Marsh Orchid and hybrids of it. The original is 12,880 x 4695 pixels. The second picture is an 'actual pixel' crop from the pano showing the detail captured through the rain that was falling. I dream of 12 foot mural print! No other camera I have used would have captured the foliage of the bushes on the far dune with detail and texture like the 800E. This sort of shot defeated the D3X.

Another picture I return to is rather different. This is a close up with a Zeiss 15 mm f2.8 @ f4.5, 1/400, ISO 100. This a seedling of wild Delphinium elatum. Hand held this one with the 800E.

Still learning the ropes with my new D800E. Spent a lot of years in the film world with both large format and 35mm. The D800E is my first DSLR.

Last weekend I ran across this exchange student from Spain doing some amazing kiteboarding and he asked if I would take some photos. I wish I would have had a 70-200 but still got some nice images with the hand held 24-70.

(The 70-200 2.8 is in my shopping cart waiting for me to pull the trigger)

Okay, I'm adding my images. No credit to the D800 here. I was there, this is my car, this is where I live, this is where I stopped to watch another colorful sunset in Tucson Arizona.

Enjoy.

I am just getting into learning bird photography. I love the resolution, color and dynamic range of the D800 to help me capture a favorite picture of a humming bird perching on a pear branch in front of my living room. Nikon engineering has done a fantastic job with the D800 !!!

This picture was taken hand-held with a 28-300mm Nikon lens at 300mm, 1/320 sec, f/5.6 with ISO 900 using Matrix metering.Its raw image was adjusted using LightRoom4. No pixel editing was performed on the image.

I learned how to use the D800 mostly from reading Darrell Young book's Mastering the Nikon D800.

Your cirtical comments of this picture are welcome and appreciated to allow me to become a better photographer.

Just got mine about a month ago. I had precious little time to "get acquainted" - just a brief foray into my backyard and a quick trip to a local regional park. Then I had a trial by fire - took it on vacation to NorCal and Oregon, went to Mt. Shasta, Burney Falls and Crater Lake.

I'm still getting used to the beast. I have had to revisit all of my basic techniques, compared to my D700, as the 800 does not suffer fools gladly. My technique is "re-improving" as I go, but it's proving to be more of an adjustment than I anticipated. It's been amazing and fun, but it has also made me again appreciate what a fantastic camera the D700 is. The flexibility and relative forgiveness of the 700 makes it almost seem like a "point and shoot" by comparison.

In the end though, I think that the demands that the 800 places on you, in terms of attention to all aspects of proper technique, is a good thing. Some day, maybe I'll do justice to this amazing instrument.

The first shot is from my backyard. The second is just above Brandywine Falls in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Number 3 was taken on the Rogue River about 30 miles from Crater Lake. The next is from the slopes of Mt. Shasta at about 6000' elevation, just after an October storm. The next image is of the north side of Shasta, taken just south of Yreka. The next one is of Manzanita Lake in Lassen National Park, at sunset, with Mt. Lassen in the background. The park closed the next day when a storm dropped about 4 ft of snow at the higher elevations. The past photo is of Burney Falls.

Terrific landscapes! With all the write-ups about how difficult this camera is to shoot, I started out being somewhat intimidated. The more I shoot with it, the more I'm finding the intimidation factor going away and a growing appreciation for what it can do. Look at your landscapes and enjoy!

Best,

I do not own a D800 or D800E although it is on my Nikon wish list and makes me wonder if I shoud sell or trade in the D200 and D3X and buy one.

For me all the photos, all the photos here are excellent and inspire me to go out and take more photos or, as Anthony Bourdain stated last night on the final episode of "No Reservations," to "...get off the couch, move, and do something... whether across the street or across the world." The San Francisco Bay Area where I live swims in photo opportunities just a few hours drive from my house - Muir Woods alone, I can spend everyday there and not exhaust the opportunities.

I read with regret about the experiences Nikonians here have had with the public's and law enforcement's reaction to photographing people especially children. It is a different world that we live in. (Although when the kids deliberately stand between the camera and the scene knowing they're fouling the shot, that appears to be ok with the parents - go figure.)

So this weekend, I'm taking the D200, D3X, and lenses and heading to Angels Camp, Muir Woods (even though my girlfriend does not understand why I keep going back there), Mare Island, Mount Tamalpias, etc. And when I consider my photos equal to the quality evidenced here, they'll be posted.

It certainly is sadly and few places can be so paranoid than the UK and for various reasons, mainly hyped up by the media, it's going to get worse

The first picture was taken in Minneapolis at the old Stone Arch Bridge.
The second was taken of the new 35w bridge, it was the replacement for the one that collapsed.

Sunset over North Wales, UK. Lots of miserable weather, but the sunset gave an opportunity to use the D800 in reducing light. A short walk from my home provides superb landscape opportunities.

Great pic and decently sharp. You must have been very close to get this with a 300mm lens.

Sharpening (either in-camera or in post processing) has created a coarse grain in the out-of-focus area behind the subject. This would look better (and enlarge better) if it were creamy smooth.

In my bird and wildlife pics I generally remove all sharpening applied by the camera and then mask the subject and apply sharpening only to that mask. This way, only the subject is sharpened. I use Nikon Capture NX2 but the same can be done in LR.

I am not sure if LR will allow you to edit the picture profile to remove sharpening applied in-camera. If not, you can do it by editing the picture profile directly in the camera (shooting menu). Rather than editing the existing profile, create a new one with your adjustments in it.

Nothing to write home about technically.
Not sharp at all and from about 150-200ft away, this was
a 'big-time' crop job.
Nevertheless, the pose came out alright and the kid and his
parents just loved it:

It is so true we have lost our way. The only place you can legitimatly taking pictures is in a public garden, like the Longwoods in PA, where they warn people away if you don't want in somebody's photos. Any other places, like a bridge, building, there will be people calling the security., because taking pictures is considered suspicious.

Gary,

Your shot really shows off the massive dynamic range of the D800/E. A sunny/shade shot like this would have been very difficult with a lesser camera.

Two fine images, excellent capture. I also see you were using a 28-300mm at 300mm and that should be of comfort to those who own this lens to know the quality it can achieve at 300mm. I am very pleased with this lens on my D800 too.

I am an amateur at landscape but am starting on it. Here are my pictures of the shoreline in Point Reyes.

Both of these images knock my socks off! Very well done I must say.

Taken while snowshoeing in the Cascade Mountains, WA. The level of detail I'm able to capture, even handheld continues to astound me. The second photo is a close up of the snow mounded against the tree shown in the first photo. I used the NIK Color Effex "Tonal Contrast" plug in filter to accentuate the texture of the snow in the wide shot.

Hand held, ISO 100, 1/400 sec, f/8 with 28-300 mm lens at 48mm for wide shot and 122mm for close up view.
