    Ah man, nice job Rooz.. I see what you were talking about now. The last two look great.

    Ok, just to clear one or two things up for me for a final time.. I assume that the first thing I do is desaturate the image? and then start playing around with curves, levels and the channel mixer? In any perticular order? or do I just play around with each untill it looks right to me?

    Once again.. thanks to all, you've all been a great help

    Just to keep in the swing of things:



    That was the evening before it snowed here in london... it was icy cold

    I got one:

    Nikon D80, Tamron 17-50 f2.8, single SB800 triggered using the D80 Commander mode fired through an umbrella to the camera's left. Window light providing the touch of fill in the shadows.




    OK, I lied...I got two. Same setup except this time we're at ISO800 (to pull in more of the ambient light in the stairwell) and the SB800/umbrella is to the camera's right...

    I agree, very nice shots. The lighting seems very natural, you made excellent use of that SB-800 off camera. Also, I really like the warm background in the second picture.

    Thanks guys. My favorite thing about that D80 is how easy it is to set up an off camera light!

    Nice shot, Allan. It's a shame the range of the 70-300 is so limiting ... In such situations I always wish I had a lens with a reach of 500 to 800 mm . Still, the placement of the bird in the frame is great (with most empty space in front of the bird).
