    Was getting ready to sell my D60 and popped out the SD card. Felt something give, and suddenly the SD card wouldn't lock in place anymore. Got an estimate to fix, and decided instead to trade the body to the shop for a Nikon 50mm 1.8D. One of my first shots:



    Harsh shadows I know, and the last few shots in this thread are tough to follow.

    Gorgeous pic. NZ has some the greatest scenery. That tree kind of reminds me of the apple trees in the Wizard of Oz, lthe ones with the 'worms in the apples'.

    Okay.... not the best shot in the world but it was quick / fast and no time to play with settings....

    Didn't want to get any closer so the 70-300 did it's job!

    Looks like you might have been to close for the bear as it was. Great shot!
    Fortunately most of my subjects tend to fly away if I get too close.
    I'll leave the risky nature shooting to those with the real long lenses like my friend Paul Blasko.
    Here is one of my little friends shot with the new Bugma 150.

    thats a pearler of a shot. a bit of a lift in the shadows using curves would be more than enuf to soften the shadows, although even as it is they arent distracting.

    Diamond, that shot of your son will bring a smile to your face every time you think back on the trade in. Congrats.

    Thanks for the kind words and the advice. As soon as I figure out how to use the curves properly, I'll see about softening up those shadows
