Along Highway 129 between Robbinsville North Carolina, and Maryville Tennessee stands a lonely tree. It's nearly winter, all its walnuts have fallen, save three, and it's time to sleep for the cold winter. But, we'll enjoy one sunset more, and this lonely tree to mark our spot for next spring!
Come on guys. We are the technically oriented, remember? Besides each's brain and wonderful eye, what camera, lens and film were you using to get those magnificent shots?. Just out of curiosity .......
Amazing shot Bar. It is not just the technical perfection, but also your image made the hunger and misery -typically seen in these kind of images- disappear and replaced by religious fervor and dignity.
Kuhmo, Finland. Mid summer night (23rd or 24th of June 2001) Shot with F80+28-80D on tripod at f11 or f16, film was Agfa HDC200 or Fuji Superia200. Wierd that matrix metering didn't get fooled with this frame.

This is a picture I caught just by chance when my son was running in front of the windows in my former home. He was full of energy and I was doing the shutterbug thing. I hope you all enjoy the results!
Bob: Very nice sunset, I wish I had more of these. Maybe if you crop it lower it would be even more spectacular. I don't believe the star filter does much for this kind of images. It is typically put to a better use when for "sparkle" light on glass, crystal or candles.
I think this qualifies as a simple composition. We spent 5 days in Grand Teton National Park, and I was traveling to Oxbow, Snake River Overlook, and the Lake to get a great picture. I wanted either an interesting sky with lots of color, or perfectly still water to reflect the Tetons in the distance - ideally, both. Unfortunately, I didn't get either, but early one morning, I did capture this very restful scene - if you discount the scanner streak.
Shallow Hollow!. Good there was a tractor and not the headless rider. (I saw the movie again last night). Good shot. Comments are useless from me; I have been unable to contribute a single image to this thread!.
I finally managed to find several backlit scenes of mine. They are over 28 years old but here is one. Nikkormat, 28mm f/2. The cardboard mounts were Kodak (I mounted the slides myself) but have no idea as to what was the film, maybe Agfachrome. I use to like that then. Valley Forge forest, 1973.
This is an old one. Regata Triángulo de Semana Santa (Easter weekend Triangle Regatta): Buenos Aires (Argentina)-Riachuelo-Barra de San Juan (Uruguay)-Buenos Aires, across the Río de la Plata (16 to 19-Apr-1987).
Camera: Canon AF35M (P&S) with a 38mm/f:2.8 lens (my dad didn't lend me his FM... sniff :'() Film: Fuji HR 100 Boat: Mercenario 2 (Holland 34') Mainsail/sheet trimmer: I Place: 1st., of course!
