Well we took a few weeks off and I have been very busy. But I would like to start one of our famous picture posts. I was thinking the Subject could be Buildings/Statues etc. Something man has built. This will give us a view of everyones town/surroundings!
In the past the D50 crowd has hit posts of over 70 lets have a good time and hope everyone enjoys. Kind Regards Jim
PS I am going to Nashville TN this weekend I hope to grab some shots there.
Artifacts A local antique shop makes a wonderful place to shoot a ton of photos like this. This is my favourite shot on my site. Night Angel Taken in a graveyard at night. I consider this to be one of my best shots ever. CN Tower-SkyDome A view of Toronto's CN Tower from just outside the Skydome's Hard Rock Cafe. Plane Museum Although not exactly a statue, it is a permament fixture at that location Consumers Glass I used to work here when I was a lot younger, they blew it up last spring Tree Cross Found not far from the antique shop posted earlier.
I am in the midst of putting together a specialized tutorial for both shooting HDR as well as processing them. It will be geared to Nikon shooters, specifically the D50.
I am also in the midst of a career change and have an interview today and a busy week ahead if sucessful... so I may be a little slow on getting this tutorial out... but it will be completed within two weeks.
It'll be available on my site's Tutorial section, as well, I'll post the news on here as well for those who may be interested.
It's my experience that most people who shoot in HDR are happy with the results of basic processing. This leads to very saturated images that really look out of place, however in some cases I think it looks good. What I want to teach is how you can achieve very dramatic results without giving that completely outlandish look and feel to your HDR shots. I hope that the tutorial will nail it
Anyways, it will be in PDF format and available within two weeks. I'll let you know.

I have been lurking for a few months now and I am looking forward to your tutorial on HDR. I find this interesting....Thanks
OK Jim. Here's my contribution... sorry it's a bit late, I meant to do it earlier but got distracted. This is the almshouse which is part of the Hospital of St Cross which was founded in the 1130´s by Bishop Henry of Blois for `thirteen poor men, feeble and so reduced in strength that they can scarcely or not at all support themselves without other aid´. The hospital was placed under the care of the Knights of St John, and the thirteen Brothers of this foundation still wear black gowns and a badge depicting the Jerusalem Cross. The shot is of where the brothers live. This is situated in Winchester not far from where I live and also near to where I worked before I retired. Note the obligatory history lesson you always get from me
btw. I was able to claim my "Wayfarers Dole" of bread and beer from the porters lodge as has been the case for travellers throughout the centuries.
It's great that you all want to share pictures among yourselves, but don't forget the main forums for image sharing - Critique Forum, A Picture I Took, Family and Pets, Wildlife, Landscape, Macro, B&W, and more. Those of us who don't have or plan to buy a D50 don't normally come in here. I just happened to see the title when I was scanning my "Read New" list, and thought I'd invite you to share your images with the more general Nikonians community, in the forums established for image sharing long before there was a D50.
Oooh I've been to Skyland Manor(the stone castle looking thing) we went there after we went to Ringwood Manor I didn't know it was a botanical garden too, ofcoarse I went in 1978. I remember going to ringwood manor and looking at the gravesites. Plus if I remember the man who made the chain across the hudson was the owner of Ringwood manor during the revolutionary war. Erskin was his name plus I think he was a map maker for Washington. Wow memories from one word. Jim
Here's my first submission to one of Jim's assignments. This bridge is in Rock Falls, Iowa near where I live. It was built in the 1800s, burnt down not too long ago, and rebuilt shortly after. It is in a small park and automobile traffic up to 3 tons is allowed to go over it.
I have to admit, this is a picture I am rather proud of.
