The best P&S on the market... excellent low light capabilities, usable ISO1600 pictures, very nice user interface and personalization possibilities... highly recommended. A 10MP small P&S with image quality comparable to the best DSLRs just a few years ago.

A very interesting experiment by Michel Rohan, a French photographer. This picture is his. An article describes the method and the setup to generate this kind of image. See the photography wiki here: http://www.techniphoto.com/wiki/index.php?title=Smoke_pictures

I tried a strange processing on this one, playing with the different color channels, to get more details in the sky, but resulting in a strange "negative" effect in some places. I like the result, but this is of course a matter of taste. This shot has been taken in the center of Brussels, with a Nikkor 24-70 2.8 lens on a Nikon D3 camera, for what it's worth.
Any comments or suggestions welcome.

An example shot using a tilt lens (here a Ukranian 80mm 2.8 Arsat lens - Nikon mount). By tilting the lens, you get a strange focus spread, showing things in different planes being in focus. This is called the Scheimpflug effect. This results in pictures looking like model train pictures. This one has been shot in Switzerland. More info on the lens on my wiki:

Special effect created with a Lensbaby on a Nikon body. The lens is a kind of cheap piece of plastic allowing tilt effects combined with macro capabilities by using close-up lenses. The effect is not exactly predictable but you can play with the depth of focus and the focus orientation.

A picture I took during a steam festival in Maldegem, Belgium. The camera I used was the Nikon D3 with the 24-70 2.8 lens. It was in the afternoon, on a sunny day, so I decided to shoot into the sun like this and to process in B/W to get something a bit special.
This is a bit of a crazy picture. It has been shot with a totally unadapted configuration: the 200-400mmVR lens on the D3 camera, a combo usually used for wildlife or sport from a distance, never to shoot close-ups like this. But at the end, I liked the result.

I started a Wiki about Photography. Some information is coming from my website and I try to add a few pages every week. I am looking for contributors to grow the content and also to add reviews about equipment I don't own or use. Feel free to contact me and to drop a message if you are interested. Anything about photography can be interesting, pictures included...
The wiki in its current version can be consulted here:

A nice portrait I shot in Sénégal, in a local school... the colors make me think of the painting by Vermeer, the Girl with the pearl earring...
see here for instance:
Shot with the 70-200VR lens on the Nikon D3 camera. The lens has been used at 5.6 to blur the background and get enough depth of field on the face.

An interesting high quality compact camera and a highly recommended combo. I added the recently released 35mm1.8 lens to the D40x camera (same body as the D60). The 35mm is approximately equivalent to the 50mm everybody was using on film reflex cameras in the good old days. High quality, no zoom (use your feet), back to the good old photography... I really love this camera for the compactness and the light weight. Everybody should give it a try.

A funny or strange depth of field effect created with a tilt lens, an Ukranian ARSAT 80mm lens. Everything is sharp in the length... not so easy to manage.

a funny experience with a free tool found on the net (thanks to a colleague on FredMiranda.com. The site is http://www.poladroid.net .
You can download a utility to do this kind of polaroid conversion, very funny and with that crazy old-fashioned look...
