Like the shot Kiwi.
500ml, sweet set.
I thought about who I am... and realized I was an
unformed, unreconciled imagery, without "GOD"
and some other Nikon stuff

Nothing serious, again - just testing more gear My nose is almost touching the lens.
D700 + sigma 12-24mm @ 12mm. ISO 1600 (no noise reduction applied) f4.5
12mm on the D700 is awesome! Just got the lens today, so don't ask me about my opinion of it because I havn't used it enough to tell you. Only thing I can say is that it suffers from bad CA's, but that was expected (and easily corrected) and - as you can see - there's quite a bit of vignetting going on. Other than that, it's just a fun lens I'm looking forward to using more.
Oh, and.. ISO 1600 and no noise reduction, did I mention that? Love my D700

I know it's similar to the previous one but I think I like the colour of the Iridium on this one better, and I want to prove to Rooz the last one wasn't a fluke.

The bikes were coming down at I guess somewhere between 80kph (the speed limit) and, lets say faster then turning slightly right for the corner.
Bright light, no clouds around 35C and about 2pm.
The first shot was ruined by super bright headlights on a Honda. The auto metering screwed up big time so I went to M, iso 400, f5, 1/800, 175mm then tracked the bikes as they came towards me (kneeling about 1.5 metres beside the road, portrait mode) and as they lent into the corner click. Simple really and shit that 70-200 can focus fast. It's pro lenses for me from now one simply for the focus speed improvements.
