Not that I didn't know this already, but the D800, wonderful a tool as it is, just doesn't come close to the autofocus performance of any of the last three generations of Canon Series 1 bodies. Slow and hit and miss. After shooting the X, it makes you feel like you're viewing the whole process in slo-mo.

I grabbed the D800 this morning just for grins, because it had the 70-200 already mounted. My keeper rate was down in the Stevie Wonder range.

Thanks Dan. She was riding one of her brother's old two wheelers. She got a new one all decked in pinks for Christmas, but it's at her house. I like the concentration with a tinge of amazement on her face.

Jim, that is an awsome face! Annalise would also stick her tung out too, it was just a hoot. But glad she didn't whipout and bite it!!! Dan

Awesome, Glenn! I like how you can see both pilots' eyes, even with all that's going on in these shots.

Is the first one maybe a tad overexposed?

Trouble in paradise: we both came down with stomach flu last night and have been flat on our backs in our room at the B&B ever since. Looking at the bright side: thank goodness today wasn't a travel day...

Hi Steve:

I believe you're right - i updated the link to a new version. I agree thats my favorite thing about it is John's face sneaking in (Blue Pitts).

I finally finished beating myself up over the ISO1600 mistake and starting digging through the files and thought these two were a couple perspective i've never seen anywhere.

There's something very special about seeing home come into view, even after a very short flight.

Thought I'd share ...

Glen, I missed commenting on your first volley from this series, after finding myself a bunch of pages behind. But I'll jump here to say these (and the others) are awesome. Sharp, great composition. Hard to believe they were shot at ISO1600 too. Definitely cover or calendar material.

Glenn, I was just imagining a Sopwith Camel chased by a Dr 1.

TOPP edit:

Hello Kitty and a bat driving and navigating a dune racer!

Need some Vegas advice. I am going to be heading out to Vegas for a few days for a conference, but I am going to have some free time to get out and explore. I ended up renting a car because I got a cheaper deal on the car than it would cost for a taxi to the hotel on the strip (go figure).

I didn't know if there was anywhere around Nellis AFB that I could go take pictures? I just got a 5D III for Christmas and I am excited to get out and try it out. Looks like I will miss Red flag by a few days, but hoping I might be able to catch some more activity out there.

Thanks!

Oh Zim, sorry about that Buddy. I guess having the flu in Hawaii is better than having it most anywhere else. Get better soon.

30 degrees with a 30 knot north wind, hail and sleet. Could have been talked into kipping church this morning but we were on the schedule to serve.

Headed to get my trailer and gear at HQ and begin the BBJ shoot.......Brrrrrrrr! We do funny things for money!

Good spots are the Motor Speed way and E Cheyenne Ave see scramble airfield guide
Always stay on the side of the road of motor speed way do not cross the road and approach the fence.
And don't photograph the infrastructure have fun there is always something happening...
