You're very kind Brian, just an old shooter plying his trade. Gotta love the D800. These files needed to be cropped from the bottom to get rid of unwanted property. The 800 still leaves you with a hefty file to do anything that needs to be done. And the 4x4 assured that, regardless of what the air is doing, the image will be sharp from corner to corner.

Thanks, Jim!

Here's another: Spooky and Sky King.

As a side note, there was a gentleman here today who flew the Sky King airframe back in W.W.II; he got himself a ride in the P-51 early in the day, and then I believe he flew in Sky King later in the afternoon as well. Here he is before his P-51 flight with the the owner/pilot of the P-51D Pecos Bill.

Here's another of the W.W.II vets who got P-51 rides today. In this pic he's holding up the snapshots he's kept as mementos all these years: check out the Corodado flying boat he piloted!

I need some advice: which of the two is better: the one with his face in focus, or the one where the photos he's holding up are sharp?

Face in focus for me Steve. I get all I need from the old photos soft.

It's all about the eyes as they say in portraits, so I agree, face.

Absolutely face in focus. But thanks for showing the other view I love seeing those old snapshots.

We have a consensus! How rare is that?

Thanks for setting me straight...

Very interesting effect, but you're sure to be asked (by "outsiders") if it is a photo or some sort of painting.

I'm thinking of getting Lenscoat covers for my 500mm and 300mm L glass but reviews are a bit iffy. Does anyone have personal experience? I assume they come in sections for each bit, but the the focussing ring naked - what happens over the buttons?

Got one over my 300F2.8L..
Great thing protects it from dirty & crud,...& knocks..
Plastic window over buttons ,..still works fine.

I hereby certify that this is the photo, the whole photo, and nothing but the photo.

Made it up safely and arrived to a surprised and smiling wife. That made it all worthwhile.


One of my gas and go's was across the road from here...
