    Let me start this post with a statement. That is I think every digital image deserves some post processing. All my digital cameras are set with that in mind. Ok here is one straight out of the newest camera in the stable only resized for posting. This one was shot with the D700 at ISO 1600 at 1/25 and f5.6 hand held by the light of a small reading light. It was taken with the Nikkor 24-120 f3.5-5.6 with the VR activated. I have only had this setup a few hours and I'm just now playing with the settings and learning what it will do. I think I am going to be very pleased.

    Very nice shot of the Mrs., OT. It looks like you are going to like the new camera body.
    Is next months project going to be all the same shots PP?

    Jimmy B-I think what is really awesome about your shot is your in the center of it! Very cool.

    Tyson-what a scary feeling! I've had quite a few fire fighter buddies and I've heard a few of these stories myself. Thanks for your commitment, it takes a lot for people to do what you do-and I'm grateful!

    Old Timer, that's a gorgeous portrait :)

    My photo is from this afternoon when I sneaked off to the lake for 10 minutes before picking kids up from nursery, hoping to find a scary tree!!! (I'm also a member of this Danish nature forum where project of the month is "The scary stuff"). Usually, I have to straighten anything with a horizon as my internal level is defect :D This one was just right. I played a little with the light, but decided that I liked it the best just the way it came out of the camera. So, no cropping, no nothing, just resizing...

    The Murrumbidgee River near Camp Sturt, shot on Kodak 35mm High Speed Infrared film with an orange filter. The negative was scanned and then a positive made. There was no photo manipulation (which I normally do), just a density adjustment until the highlights in the image were displaying adequate detail.

    With film, straight out of the camera is the print maker's judgement? I hope this image is considered straight out of the camera? ... if not, no worries.

    Wonderful image Warren!

    I can't fault you for inverting the image, as that is the same as making a print, however the density adjustment is minipulation.

    A few more, sooc, from various cameras - some cheap and nasty.
    It's not the camera that makes the good photo, is it ?
    Well yes, sometimes it's a poor camera that ruins a good photo :(

Motor still warm, keys in the ignition and no one around. It seems a redneck and his buddy decided to do a little druken off roading at 1 am. Beer cans all over the front of the truck and in the bed.

    Now if you have never worked in the fire and ems service or came across a situation like this, you have no idea how intimidateing it can be. No lights, just your head lamps and a flash light. You have to search for bodies, blood or anything that could help you find the driver. A hundred thoughts running through your head all at once. All because some punk wanted to get drunk and drive.

    This isn't the first time we had to go looking for a body, we have found them pinned under their cars, floating down river, thrown a hundred feet from the car and some times in more than one place. Sometimes you see things you'll never forget.

    This time we just found an empty truck, the driver was lucky and walked home after he disabled his truck. Nice truck too.

    No photoshop, just resized for web use.

    HI TLS, I don't work for any of those, but as a rural route paper carrier, I have recently come upon a car that scared the daylights out of me. I was on a rather deserted gravel road and saw a car in the ditch. Not necessarily unusual as it is combining season and farmers are frequently out and hunters are scouting herds of deer. But something was unusual about this one. As I got closer, I saw the skid marks in the gravel and realized the car had hit a tree at high speed. I jumped out as I was dialing 911, fearing the worse. Realizing with all the dew on the car it had been there for a while, I thought for sure, someone is dead. As I approached the front of the vehicle I saw the windshield had been hit from the inside and I quickly began searching for blood and survivors, but amazingly...no one was in the vehicle. Then I started searching the area for someone laying on the side of the road while waiting for a sheriff to show up. Which could be an hour or more considering the size of this county and the limited number of officers. Anyway, I didn't find anyone, I finally had to let the 911 operator know that I had to continue on my route. People get awful irate if their papers are late.
    It's my worst fear that some night I'm going to come upon a car full of high school or college kids all smashed up because of alcohol, or a family whose been run off the road because of a drunk driver. Knock on wood this doesn't happen.
    Anyway, I know how you feel and pray it doesn't happen too ofter to you, or anyone!!!

    ken1953, thanks for reading my post. I hear so many people speak out about wanting to ban guns in the USA when drinking and driving kills and cripples 10 times the people. Makes no sense.

    Here is a shot from today.

    Looking back, I'm astonished the floppy disk Sony mavica worked so well !
    PERHAPS because it had no manual options for me to mess it up.
