Wow, lots of good posts....
Here is my share for today
where there’s smoke there’s forum fire
Seems like I missed a whole day.
Thanks Eric and Juergen...and you're welcome Eric. Really good "catch" by the way. Pun intended.
SquamishPhoto - lovely skin tones and gorgeous subject indeed.
OnTheRopes - excellent 1st post. I enjoy shooting that type of photo myself.
Benji2505 - marvelous churchyard scene.
The macros are amazing here.
@msmoto - Thanks for the panning tutorial!
@Pierre - Awesome background.
@rschnaible - NIce ... Navy fighter?
Great stuff as usual all.
The macro people are putting up some incredible shots!

Pierre, all my bugs are alive and well and shot in the wild (as wild as the trees and grass outside my flat gets). Here's the same spider with a different pose and angle. Btw, I like the colours in your shot.
Good Morning Everybody, here is one that got "beached", a rare find during the summer months.
'love the shots this months! Too many excellent shots to mention them all.
Really good photos everyone!
Finally, something other than a car shot. And, I am still trying to get some macro shots of bugs....
Nikon D4, 135mm f/2.0 Nikkor, 1/125 sec, f/5.6 ISO 400
Beso, Eric and Msmoto: very nice compositions.
Wareagle, great color and sharpness.
Pierre, really nice color richness.
I don't know how you folks do the macros. A tutorial is needed I think.
This is probably not meeting the standard here, but I wanted to share a great natural phenomenon that occurs toward the end of June each year:
Camas, Packer Meadows, Clearwater National Forest, Idaho:
D700, Nikon 20mm f2.8
I think the only "standard" is to keep the maximum size to 800 px and to avoid any offensive content. Only the creator of a photo can determine exactly what is to be presented. Others can express their likes or dislikes or whether they might do it differently, but the one who produces the photo is the one with the final word. I put up photos I know some folks may not find to be super, but sometimes these are just documenting something I wanted to document. And, it is my opinion, this is photography. Documenting history as best we can. Photo techniques are also used in what I call "photo art" and we see a lot of that on PAD as well. Every photo on PAD is equally valid, and has the merits which have been given to it in the eyes of the creator. So, while I may find some more to my liking, I think everyone on PAD does a great job, and you are no exception.
I was travelling some this week for work and looked in to see what was posted in PAD and as usual, the submission are outstanding. Very talent rich group. Thanks for continuing to inspire me :)
Check out the size of these Redwoods. The motorcycle and road sign will give the perspective of the size of these Giants. I never get tired of seeing these living legends :)
New Nikkor 10-24mm
It is an outstanding lens as many of you indicated :)
Some inspiring images and I enjoy looking at them all.
This is a little piece of England, namely 'The Roaches' in Staffordhire in the Peak District National Park. The rock is naturally red here and the low angle of the sun increases the effect. This was my first outing with the d800.

@OnTheRopes - beautiful composition and execution, well done
@mike - one more zf.2 snap and You'll be banned :) for making mod jealous :) love the bokeh
Msmoto, thanks for the response. Yep, we each have our own tastes and capabilities. I like PAD because it is so positive, unlike some other boards. And of course, the images are inspiring.
Squamishphoto, very nice, the combo of camera and lens seems to be a real winner.
Had a question about the light: natural light from the top and a softbox as a fill from the lower right to get some structure in her face?
