Leighton, I like this very much. The colors are nicely saturated and the dark foreground really sets this off.

Thank you for the comment on the midday shot.

Hey Matt, never mind the bills, how are you feeling?
Don't know if I missed it some time ago but did you go for the surgery?


No I've been doing physical therapy trying to alleviate pain with some level of success. However my insurance kicked a test that the doctor had done and said they had prior approval for, so I'm on the hook for a $1900 test that was suppose to be covered and everyone is looking at me to pay it now.

Sorry to hear this Matt, I hope it all works out in the end.



+1 Matt. Take care of yourself.

I like it! My garage shot (2-stitch vertical pano) was taken at 230pm, so same crap light.


I like your garage shots Kevin. It is fun to experiment with what we would consider less than desirable light. Sometimes the results can be very interesting.

Thanks Scott. I think you have taken your photography up a couple of notches!

As some of you know, I am a new member here, with a "new" D700 and some MF lenses. I looked very hard at the D800/D600, but I also have a lot of $$$ in the Fuji XP1 (great, when Adobe figures it out) and I was not going to go overboard on yet another system. Came close though!

Anyway, the photo below shows why I am astonished with the D700. Just an offhand photo with an inexpensive lens (85 2 AI) of the pond in our backyard. Don't know if you can see it here, but when you look closely at the woods in the very far distance, the amount of resolution is fantastic. Not pixel peeping, just the fact that it shows up at all!

I am sure the d800/D600 is even better. But this works for me, right now...

From your lips..... it was just about totally shut this morning and isn't much better now. This will pass and I will be able to go outside in harsh light and take pictures...... cabin fever too.

David, nothing wrong with the D700 as evidenced numerous times on this thread. The more you shoot with these wonderful lenses, the more you'll be "astonished"! Nice pond!

Too bad you don't live closer, we could convalesce together. I hope it will clear up soon. Are you sure you don't want to try the salt?

She's stuck doing chores for now, but I did ride along with her to the dump today! I'm already going crazy just sitting here.

I missed this one Scott - really handled the light beautifully. Well done.

Come on Leighton Barbara has enough to do without you inviting people over to convalesce with you. Geeeez give the poor girl a break!

Here are some Eagle shots from today. These birds are amazing to watch.They are so majestic that I didn't want to leave! All of these were shot with the D7000 and the 300mm 4.5 EDIF all were wide open save the second one at F11

These are awesome! I love how this lens performs on the D7000... I had the opportunity to pick up one of these lenses for dirt, I mean DIRT, cheap...had no money for it at the time. (guy wanted $160 for it, was very banged up, but the glass was pristine and the aperture blades were perfect).

Yes it does Kevin. It is a stellar lens that I bought off of one of our members here at the insistence of Reagan and from the great examples from Curtis. Chuong gave me a wonderful deal on this lens and every time I use it I am thankful for his generosity. Be dilagent and one will preset itself in due time.
I think that you have been doing wonderful work with the lenses that you have and you have proven that it isn't always about the lens. I haven't found any bad Nikkor lenses yet. I owe a lot to the D7000. I sold all of my Canon equipment to secure it, NO regrets here
