Thanks guys. The lens used was the trusty old 18-200 VR, handheld. From memory the details were 1/200s, f/4 approx, ISO 100, focal length ~ 135mm.
And now for something completely different. Here's a couple of shots of the Athabasca Falls near Jasper, Alberta, Canada. They're not very high but the power of the water was astonishing, the roar deafening and the spray impressive. I wouldn't give much for your chances if you fell in.
Thanks DPR. I tend to gravitate toward isolated subjects. Unfortunately did not have the 24-70 f/2.8 with me that day, so the background is a little weird, but the 18-105 seems to be a decent everyday lens. I'll be goofing around with an old 43-86 f/3.5 Ai-S (off the FE) down the road as well. Seems to work fine on the 7000.
Lovely pair of waterfall shots. Impressive DOF and ISO. what were you using f45? :p
Whatever it was those are great shots.
Nice Les! Looks like f/7.1 @18mm on the exif.
Really liking the first one Les.
Actually, they both look more impressive if you download them and view them at full size (1280 x 848). Shooting details are:
#1 -- Program (P) mode, 1/320s, f/7.1, ISO 100, focal length 18mm (27mm full-frame equivalent).
#2 -- Program (P) mode, 1/640s, f/5, ISO 100, focal length 18mm.
Both taken with my D7000 and 18-200 VR, which is a great lens for travelling if you only want to take one lens with you.
I took this last Summer, the sailboat belongs to a friend.
This was taken with my D80.
The Ferry between the North and South Islands of New Zealand
@ Tomcat: very serene sunset shot. Although the D80 does have its limitations by today's high standards, it still handles very well and can take great pictures. I decided to keep mine as a backup body when I bought my D7000. Below is an early morning shot of Queenstown harbour in Tasmania taken with the D80 and 18-200VR in 2009 (1/200s, f/7.1, ISO 200, f.l.=18mm).
@DPR: I like the vertical nature of the composition of the shot, heading into threatening skies. It was taking a shot similar to this that I lost my brand new circular polariser overboard whilst leaning far over the rail on the ferry from Melbourne to Davenport, Tasmania. Lesson learned -- always turn the polariser ring anticlockwise (looking from behind the camera). That way you're not tending to unscrew the filter body!
I'm anxiously awaiting your posts taken with the new gear!
