So that instance of moire was an artifact of the reduction in PSE?

Here's a 100% crop of the raw file, then converted to jpg. Moire's gone.

Thanks Tony, that is a relief although in that case I am still waiting to see an instance of moire due to the D800 sensor. Good to learn this from your input.

Looking at your pictures is about all I'm up for at the moment! Caught viral conjunctivitis from Ingrid who was over it last week. Not a pretty sight!

Had another session with Tosh this past weekend. Was having some issue with white balance within the shot. The particular strobe head I was using might be the culprit. I will have to switch it out next time and see if I have the same problem.

Beautiful colors and sharpness Kevin.

I know I have trouble with composition especially for wide angles. I will be interested in people's suggestions on a composition book too.

Thanks for the compliments all. I have been really thinking hard about each shot and trying to get it right in camera. One of you all here I think gave me the best advice I have received to better myself as a photographer, work on composition. I am still working on that, but I think this one isn't bad.

The lens that started it all for me... Series E 50mm, f/5.6, ISO100, +.7 EV, 1/400

Since I totally agree that I need to work on composition, can you all recommend any online books or articles on composition? I know the thirds rule,

Too many viruses going around. Peter, hope you get better soon.

Good catch Peter, that is supposed to be Jim Henson, the muppets guy and an alumnus.

But you are right, it looks like Curtis and Kermit having a lively conversation about Nikon Manual Focus Lenses. From his expression, I don't see Kermit falling for Curtis' line on how much of an investment the darn lenses are though

Samy - looks like a nice college well captured. Where did thay get the statue of Curtis and Kermit?

Cool, glad to help! I have yet to see a moiré problem on my D800, but after shooting with it for awhile now, I'm not too concerned about it.

I love love this one Ray. I keep going back and forth between the 85/1.4 and the 135/2. Decisions... decisions.

Just a quick note that the 400mm 3.5 with the TC16a does work well enough for the D800 but is not as sharp as the same lens with the TC300.

Here is an secretary bird with the TC300 on a D3

Here you go Kevin, I like Bryan Peterson's the best. I like his style of teaching. Look him up on Youtube as well as Adorama and B&H. All three have great tutorials all the time.

Peter, I hope it goes away soon. In cattle we call it Pink Eye. One of the "old timers" remedies was to rub salt in the eye!

The first of these two is stunning Ray, love the colours, the background, the sharpness, the simplicity of composure...
