That's a wonderful portrait, Jim. I tell everybody, aircraft, are not the only thing you do well.
Do you think it would be improved, by taking out the spare catchlight

I see the 'extra' catchlight now that you point it out, Tom, but it didn't bother me in the slightest before, and not much, now.

This is what a forecast of 'overcast with a 50% chance of rain' looks like on Kauai.

You're getting rid of your 800?!

Hi Tom,

Thank you! No, the second catch light is fine with me. Maybe if the composition was much tighter and the eyes were a bigger focal point, but I liked them when I was shooting these and it doesn't bother me in the final product.

Lady Jo, I'm going to send both those lenses in to CPS for a thorough tweaking/cleaning, then I'm going to do a thorough test of my new 200-400/1.4. Once I have a feel for where that lens puts me, I'll decide whether to go with a Series II 500, or 600. Not sure about letting the 800 go, but we'll see what level of interest I get. I normally have four or five Canon bodies so I rarely have to change lenses and subject the sensor to the elements. I guess that isn't quite so important with the Canon's, because they throw quite enough crud around from the inside!! I'm down to two 1DX bodies on the Canon side, and two D800's on the dark side. I'm just noodling what I might want to add, lose, condense, update.

Sure wish someone would come out with the next pro top line body. I really don't want to add another 1DX or two at this point, but there isn't even a hint of anything new on the horizon. It's around this time I begin thinking about gear and mitigating some of the tax burden from the year's assignments. I usually go down to Competitve and trade them a bundle of cash for a few shiny boxes between now and December 31st.

Love it, or hate it, it is different. Probably the only P-51 with a glass panel.

Kind of difficult for me to watch these guys, just a little too close to home..............
