For those of you who've asked about "before" pictures, how they look before I edit them: this picture is 99% as it was straight out of the camera. TINY miniscule tweaks to the color temperature, saturation and sharpness is the only thing that's been done. TINY tweaks. Took about 5 minutes from raw to jpeg.
If you're looking at it and thinking that something else must have been done: no, that's just how sweet the D700 is :)
Shot with the nikon 24-70 @ f2.8.
On a compleatly different note: I got a call from canon's pro department today, and the result of that is that I'll get to borrow some nice canon gear in august to try it out. I really shouldn't say any more, because it sounds so cool that canon's pro department called - but to be honest it's just because of a favour I did for someone at canon :) Looking forward to testing out the 5D MKII with the 70-200 f2.8 II, 24-70 and whatever else I need :)
Took the nikkor 50mm f1.8 out today and used it on f1.8 only. The bokeh is horrible.
Another one.. This is close to a 100% crop.
