And with our governmental leadership those bridges will have to last ANOTHER 100 years!

Excuse me, Excuse me. I thought we were talking about bombers, not bridges.

how many bombs has it dropped? LOL

The question should be...

How many American soldiers lives has the U-2 saved because of the real time battle intelligence it has collected over it's life time and reported intelligence in real time to the troops on the ground?

The B 52 is ranked as the best bomber of all time. As far as longevity? It blows other planes out of the water. It's been around since 1955!

The U-2 is still flying missions. First flight -- August 1, 1955.

What is wrong with paying appropriate taxes?
Unless you are a President.

If you have a loss, the money that you previously earned is gone. Nothing there, what is to tax? So many people in America are clueless about finances.

I've had three Win10 updates with the past two weeks. Odd. No problems, though.

I noticed that when I select Hibernate at shut down, my keyboard stays lit. I use an Azio keyboard with illuminated keys. I usually shut off power to the computer completely, so I never noticed it before. Hibernate supposedly "Turns off the PC..."

I know that Sleep maintains power to the computer because the lights inside remain lit, as well as the fan indicator lights.

Any comments?

I have Windows 10. I use 'Sleep' all the time and the keyboard lights go out every time. We know 'Sleep' maintains power because memory is not lost.

Three years ago, I brought a bag with D800E, D500, 14-24, 24-70, 70-200 for a week driving around the nation. I used the D800E with 14-24, 24-70 a lot. I was hopeful to use D500 with 70-200 to take pictures of the puffins but they didn’t show up. The bag was not light but I rented a car so the weight was not an issue.

Iceland is extremely scenic, you can take great pictures at every turn. I recommend 14-24 and 24-70 or equivalent. Do not forget ND filters if you like waterfalls.

I do not know if I violate any forum rule to post a link to my Iceland photo album for you to check out. Enjoy the trip.

You were very lucky. I see many photos in your album with bright sunny days. Some friends and I were in Iceland for 2 weeks in October 2018. If you add up all the hours of sunny sky that we had, it wouldn't fill up a day. Hardly any green. So much gray and brownish-yellow. But we did get to see the Northern Lights.

My favorite is a walk in the country in the Cotswolds.

If you have 2 Nikon Cameras you can get an additional 20 G with a second account with a second email address. You can register a Max of 2 cameras.

Are you sure about this? If you read the Terms of Use, this is one of the rules:

"Each customer may register for one and only one membership."

I've been using Nikon Image Space for a few years. I use it to display my tour photography to share with all the people who were on the tour. I have run out of space and hate to take previous trips off in case people want to still view the images.

I do not like Canon's Irista website because you have to share each person and then they have to register for an account on Irista. With Nikon Image Space, all I have to do is email the web site URL for my album to each of the people on the tour..... No passwords, no accounts to sign up for.

I don't understand. Every Nikon camera I have purchased came with a printed manual (and I have several Nikon, and only Nikon, cameras). Do other manufacturers not include a printed manual?

Those who advise check before you shoot are advising the obvious. The problem is for those who are distracted and forgetful (me). My first shot out of the camera bag is usually good because for some reason it is automatic to check the settings in the viewfinder. The problem is my forgetfulness as I go along and take more photos. I am shooting landscape photography the vast amount of times and it's easy to forget as I move from sunlight to shade and back.

Last weekend, on one of my hikes, I was trying to shoot some butterflies. Not only forgetfulness frustrated me, but the speed from shot to shot because of the resistance of the butterflies to stay in one place, was a challenge for me.

Because the vast majority of my photography is landscape, I have a CP on all my lenses. I have had 2 of the filters broken when my camera has been in the overhead bin on airplanes. There was no damage to the lenses and the lens cap was on the camera in both situations. The filters are all Nikon branded for Nikon cameras.

We were blessed with clear skies, after a section of thin clouds passed by around 9:30 pm, but it was very cold & windy.

foxfirerodandgun, we are from the same neck of the woods. I'm near Mansassas. It was not only cold and windy for the moon eclipse... it was extremely cold and windy (for VA). My thermometer said 12 degrees, and with the wind that we had, the wind chill surely was way below zero. The wind was so bad, I had a hard time keeping my camera and tripod from swaying. I tried to snap shots in between gusts of wind.

After being outside for one minute, I could barely operate my camera. It's impossible to make adjustments with gloves on, so my fingers would freeze up immediately. Like you, my photos were disappointing. I tried using live view to focus, and from the difficult position to view the screen, the moon appeared to me to be in focus. However, I was so cold and my eyes aren't the greatest. I guess my focusing was just not good enough.

I have a Lenovo with i5 processor and Win 10. This happens to me intermittently when I open a JPEG with the Windows included program "Photos". I also use ASeeDSee and Photoshop frequently to open JPEG's, but never had the problem occur with them. It only occurs on Windows "Photos".

Man, after nearly 20 years I still can't believe there is confusion on this. Here we go:

A RAW file is all the data from the sensor capture. Your RAW files will need post-processing. When you open them as is, they are flat and lifeless...

I use Photoshop CC 2015. When I double click on my NEF files (Nikon RAW files) they open in the Camera Raw part of Photoshop. My photo does not look flat and lifeless. It looks similar to the equivalent JPG photo. Am I doing something wrong and are my photos lacking any of the PP that should be available to RAW files? Am I really processing the RAW file?
