    jdeg thinks the problem some people experience while uploading images has to do with the server. And he already ordered a new one and is getting it provisioned. No idea how long it will take to implement the changes though.

    Nice collection of images!

    Re: Dangerous Spouse Pics

    Had some ideas for this week's "Blur" challenge - my cat leaping, me swinging a golf club with the intervalometer - but ended up deciding on a moving car shot. I toyed with making some kind of rig to affix the camera to the hood (bonnet) of the car, pointing back, to catch our faces with the motion blur off to each side. But there were a few problems with that, notably my lack of rig making skills and attendant fear of destroying a Nikon D500. So I went with handheld.

    My wife gamely agreed to drive while I took some shots. Unfortunately the little bumpkin country roads up here are bumpy and slow. Slow enough that to see blur in cars coming towards us require 1/30 sec shutter speed. Handheld. And did I mention the roads here are bumpy? I took just over 140 shots, and these are the only ones that came close to keeping my wife sharp. Plus, and this was more of a factor than I originally thought, shooting through the front windshield meant using a CPF, and I kept having to rotate it every time the road curved.

    Oh, and of course it started raining 2 minutes after we left. And not a steady rain either. It was one of those schmutzy light rains that just make the windshield look streaked and dirty, rather than wet. The shot I chose to enter at least had discernible rain, which is mostly why I chose it.

    I like my B&W treatments here, and I added in some grain/noise to give it more of a gritty feel because of the weather.

    Well if suuuuumone wouldn't have chosen such a challenging subject this week... I can just hear it, "You must have already taken 50 pictures, do you have it yet?" "Almost, just another one or two!" LOL!
    I like the ones with the headlights, but ya, I see what you mean. Schmutzy windshield.

    Haha! Oh ye of little faith in D500's. 140 shots are taken quicker than it just took you to read this sentence. Even she was able to drive without bitching for that long, which makes the camera worth whatever I paid for it right there

    I agree, but yeah...schmutz. Waddaya gonna do.

    Re: Dangerous Spouse Pics

    When I got home from shopping yesterday I saw a really pretty butterfly in our (appropriately named) butterfly bush by the front door. I had my D500 with the 70-300 sitting right inside the door, so I grabbed it and fired off a few shots before it flew away. But in my haste I completely forgot that I was still in full manual mode with settings that were completely inappropriate. I ended up with an about 15 shot burst, all of which looked like this, OOC:

    But god bless the dynamic range on that D500. The histogram showed the whites weren't blown out, so this was in effect I suppose a, "expose to the right" shot. In Lightroom then I just adjusted the exposure, shadows, etc., and was able to produce this:

    It's not the greatest of pics. I front focused a bit, just missing focus on the head. But I'm really impressed with how much I was able to recover, especially compared to my D5500.
