Posted by

This is the same basic scene as the previous three with a D700 and 24-70mm lens.

NIKON D700 1/125 second F/8.0 ISO 400 70 mm (35mm equiv.)

Gary from Cochise County, United States

Wow, that's a pretty impressive landscape Jack.

Fantastic landscape and colors Jack!

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

I have carefully viewed these four pictures. I like this one best, though other three are beautiful enough.

Bettina from United States

Amazing how it becomes a whole new picture. This has an entirely different meaning with the long stretch of field and pasture in the foreground. Great.

PATRICK from miramas, France

juste excellent 5 stars!!!!

Dulcie from Danville, CA, United States

Beautiful horizontal framing. The focus has changed so dramatically and so interestingly. Again, exquisite work on those trees in the fog. Love this !!!

I love the panoramic pov for a view such as this. This would be my favourite of your series.

A different crop gives it a whole new dimension.

Jaap from Friesland, Netherlands

Excellent landscape with that full saturated colors and the fog up in the treetops.

Today is Sunday and we offer a delight Image! Perfect ... small ... concentrated like a sweet chocolate cherry liqueur something inside ... want to give a good bite. A passionate work of art! Thanks dear friend! Many kisses!

Joli panoramique avec de très belles nuances de verts.

JJ from Jersey City, United States

Amazing landscape, good to see more of this area and the beautiful natural colors, the fog across the treetops compliments and brings out the colors even more

Magnifique ... Ces couleurs sont agréables !... Sur ce joli paysage

Don from spokane, United States

I like the long panoramic view of this place. It's a lovely setting made better with the fog. Nice variation.

7 Mar 2010 2:33pm

Laur from Clermont-Ferrand, France

Belle atmosphère, c'est un vrai paysage de conte de fée, elle pourrait en faire l'illustration !

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

The wide view is quite lovely. The fog in the trees is quite makes for a fine scene.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, United States

Wow Jack....these just keep getting better and better......this wider view gives a whole different feeling to the complete scene, and I like it alot!! I do have a question though.....I understand using the different lenses...although if this was shot at 70, as the data shows, I can't even imagine what might have happened at 24....but my question is....what's the difference between the 2 cameras??? I'm not real familiar with Nikon models, and I'm curious what changes between the models you used....
Have a great sunday!!!

7 Mar 2010 3:23pm

@Susan: Thanks. The D700 is a full frame camera, which means among other things that it has a larger sensor. Because of this, the same lens used on both the D300 (so-called cropped sensor, which is what you have) and the D700 will give a wider view on the D700. Plus in this instance, the lens itself is a wider angle lens than the 70-300mm that was used for the first three shots. Also, I cropped some of the sky.

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

This is a beautiful landscape.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, United States

I have mixed feelings about your response.......Positive that you beautifully explained the diff....not so positive that makes me want to trade in my newest rig, and get something full frame!!! But not in the financial cards for awhile, I'm afraid!!!!!

7 Mar 2010 4:12pm

@Susan: What's important is to know that not all lenses will work on a full frame sensor. However, all lenses that will work on a full frame sensor will work fine on a cropped sensor. The problem is most lenses for full framed sensors are "much" more expensive. There are great superwide angle lenses out there for your camera and they are less expensive than what you would put on a ff sensor camera. However, if you think that you might some day purchase a ff camera, you probably don't want to be buying any lenses that you can't use.

I love it. Beautiful landscape

Nice full frame Jack, incredible how it gives a new dimension to the sot (and place).

This is a stunner, Jack. Now I'm torn between this and the mono....

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

That is gorgeous gorgeous green.

7 Mar 2010 6:27pm

Barbara Kile from Ft. Worth, United States

Well, this is my fav! The house becomes secondary to the lush greens, the lines and textures of the landscape. Very well composed.

7 Mar 2010 9:37pm

@Barbara Kile: Thanks. I'm with you when it comes to making the house less prominent.

B.Held from Santa Fe, United States

completely brilliant

7 Mar 2010 10:08pm

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, United States

Your continuing explanation makes me think it may be a very long time till I upgrade to full frame....unless, of course, I hit the lottery, or find a very rich partner!!!!

7 Mar 2010 10:09pm

@Susan: Better odds with the rich partner :))

Paul from summerside, Canada

Very nice photo

marc battault from clermont ferrand, France

I like this wide-angle view more details and colors are superb!
friendships, jack!

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Best yet, Jack!

8 Mar 2010 12:17am

@B. Thomas: People's preferences fascinate me. Like Barbara Kile, I prefer this shot because it minimizes the house and emphasizes the landscape. Some in my critique group recommended the earlier crop to make the house more dominant.

Charles Dastodd from Chicago, United States

what a gorgeous landscape!!!!

8 Mar 2010 12:24am

Adam Karnes from Salem, United States

This is my favorite in the series, but I'll save my vote until I'm sure you've finished pulling more images out of your magic hat. :)

The panoramic view puts even more impact on the mystery.

Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

What a difference a camera makes. Which did you like best Jack?

8 Mar 2010 2:22am

@Self-Indulgence: This one. However, I must say that I really liked the fog in the trees of the first one.

Of the series, Jack, this is by far my favorite of the four. The first is excellent as well, but this one just rocks.
