Lets see photos that have the Color Red. Winter can be so dreary so lets see those vivid Red Colors plus we can honor Valentines Day.
This will be a combined post that will run in both Jan and Feb. So lets work out those D80's.

This is a picture I took of a warships bridge. The ship was named HMAS Brisbane (HMAS-Her Majesties Australian Ship) and it decommissioned from the Royal Australian Navy several years ago now. The Australian War Memorial, located in Canberra, acquired the bridge and have erected it at the memorial as a walk in display. They did a very good job. What you are looking at are the helm (ships steering wheel) controls. I actually served on this ship many years ago and received my helmsman’s certificate aboard her 19 years ago.
Hope you like the shot

Jeepers...I didn't realize how many reds were in my surroundings, until I engaged in a self-imposed 'red' photo assignment this afternoon. The conditions: shoot as many red objects as I could find within a 200 yard radius, in 10 minutes. This collage includes most of them.
All shots had the same settings, except shutter speed & focal length.

Lyle, I'm glad I helped brighten your day. Actually, it brightened my day, too. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we experience about a 5 month-long monsoon season (grey is a dominant color) and may only have 2-3 all-day sunny days in the month of January. So naturally, I was out taking advantage of this particular one.
I tried to post this pic once already but it vanished into the cosmos, so apologies if it duplicates.
I took this photograph at a local 'Cyclo Cross' event over around christmas time. This cyclist came off on a bend just moment before, picked up his bike and carried on! This was him on the next lap, needless to say he did not win the race...Amazing determination and spirit, hats off to all of them.
Cross racers are a tough, crazy group. The worse the weather, the more they love it! Colorado doesn't usually get enough ugly weather for Cross races so they sometimes create artificial muddy sections for them, run them through sand pits, barriers of course, and anything else they can think of. Personally I prefer a nice sunny day to race my bike.
Hey, Thanks Rob. I decided to set up on a rather nasty looking bend with an awkward twist leading into a muddy stream bed. During the course of the race there were a number of crashes right in front of me. Rather than spring to aid of the riders I....well...snapped away... gulp! No-on was seriously injued and the ambulance crew were at han
At my team's cross race I sat next to a barrier at the top of a 10 foot climb. I captured one guy trying to bunny hop the barrier. He tried three times before he made it. No serious injuries. But it was a good spot.
Hi, Well it is actually as far from winter as it can get down here in Aus. Taken last week at Fingal Bay, 2.5 hours north of Sydney. D80, 70-300 @300 F9, 1/400, ISO200, no filters. matrix metering, touch of recovery in lightroom
Look carefully and you will see a spider waiting for the unsuspecting ant to cross his path. It's a little harder to see in the smaller image. This is a picture from our trip to Hawaii. It's great to have in laws in Hawaii during the winter! My sister-in-law even has a Nikon now.

Well, what can I say? I got bored! I don't own any lighting equipment and only have the in built flash so i used a table spot lamp at a low angle to direct the light and achieve the shadowing. I had to defuse with a piece of tissue paper in front of the light source! The overexposed area was tricky to eliminate because the apple was so glossy. In the end I just decided to leave it as it was shot after removing the white spot before hand and then deciding it made the apple too to flat. Sheeesh, the things we do...

hi all. new member here, and first time picture poster. I'm into my second week with my D80. I thought I'd let this be my first shared image. hopefully it's good enough for a starter to the group. a few details: 35-80mm @ 66mm, P mode, f7.1, 1/500s, ISO100, -0.3ev, auto WB. I'm not too thrilled with how it looks reduced to 535x800... thanks for looking ~Mike~
OK...one more. I was playing around in Photoshop tonight, and started experimenting with blending a black and white version with a color version of the same image. This was one of the results I came up with.
Taken with a sigma 10-20mm @ 19mm, f5.6 5 exposures from 1/20" - 4" a ton of post processing... jpgs run through DXO, then tweaked in lightroom, then combined in photomatix, then some selective desaturation in photoshop, then a bit of sharpening and exported from lightroom.
I wish I had framed the original better, would have been better with the left edge of the window frame included I think.
A group of us went to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pa. last weekend for a day of floral shooting. They were having their Orchid Extravaganza. There were many styles and colors. This one caught my eye.

Rena in Delaware Knowledge is the power behind the lens.
Took this during a night flight to Tucson on Feb 13. Took about a dozen tries to get it timeed right, framed right, and this clear. The red is from the flashing running light. In between flashes the wing was invisible, but the "Airtran" wingtip was always lit. Hope it's "vivid" enough. I have to admit I was surpised this shot came out at all.

Very nice shot. The fenders almost have a translucent look to them. By chance, did you take a close-up image of just the right rear fender with tire and hubcap? The red, white, black and blue colors, combined with the curves of the fender and wheel, really caught my eye.
Just got my D80 3 days ago. I've been reading a lot the past month about photography because I wanted a new camera and I think I got bit by the bug. I think I found a new hobby. On review, I should have used a slower aperture to get more of the "rear" in focus and bumped up the ISO a bit.
