Nice shots everyone.
Rich, that must have hurt... Great timing and DOF, you sure put the lens to great use.
DPR, nice shots. I like the contrast on the basketball shot. The colours are perhaps a bit surreal, but I don't think it's over the top. Perhaps I would try to selectively lower the saturation of the floor, but for the rest of the picture I would keep contrast and saturation as it is here.

Isn't it cute? :P
Shot with D90 + 18-200. Slight crop. Pondering whether I should get rid of that hair on its nose, it's kind of annoying me.

Thanks to you and Rich but I'm not really happy at the moment with the results. I think the TC combined with having to take every photo at 200mm is doing something to the IQ. I think next Cricket season something longer will be in order I just now have to convince SWMBO that because I got $200 for one photo I need to spend $8500 on a 200-400VR. Shouldn't be that hard.

Great shot! If the hair bothers you then just clone it out, luckily its in a spot where it should be relatively easy to clone out.

I have been feeling real pathetic lately, and seriously thinking that I can't shoot worth beans. Then today I found a whole bunch of pictures I took this past summer, and I am like, WOW, some of these are really nice. Here is one of my friend's daughter.

Thanks for the suggestion Prospero,
Really nice NCF, never thought of that subject. Might prefer with less cloth distractions though.
Great lizard Alana, nice work with the 18-200.
Mugs, don't be down on yourself. And if you don't mind a suggestion. One thing I've worked out is wrong with many of my photos is a brighter background than subject. Once I stopped doing that so much I was much happier with my own shots. Sometimes that means, spot metering the background and then popping up the flash with my subject under the metering point.
