    Thanks. I'm trying to get reacquainted with my camera. It's been collecting dust for quite awhile.

    Some very nice photos fellas, especially the snow scenes. DPR, is that Hallett Cove beach?

    Rather than 'Picture of the Day', I suppose the following could be called 'Picture of the Night'. Having just received my shiny new D7000 yesterday (thanks to Digital Camera Warehouse's super-fast dispatch and delivery service), I spent most of the day RTFM'ing, fiddling with various settings and blitzing away (this thing is fast!). Just before going to bed I stuck my head out the front door, pointed the camera into the black void outside which was lit by one measly streetlight, and got the result you see below. All I've done is resize it, otherwise it's SOOC (but see Edit#2).

    Frankly, I was staggered at the D7000's light-gathering ability. The photo shows FAR more detail, colour and brightness than was visible to the naked eye. (Actually, the sky looked completely black). And yes, that's the Southern Cross you can see in the sky (top centre).

    Shooting details: Handheld, 1/6 sec @ f/3.5, 18-200mm VR @ 18mm, ISO 8000. Auto NR at high ISO.

    Now it's back to the (at times, confusing) manual. Oh, and I'd better change my sigfile I suppose!

    Edit#1: Just noticed this photo looks much darker on my desktop monitor than on my laptop screen. It's actually quite bright, considering the lack of ambient light.

    Edit#2: Replaced photo with smaller version so that those of us with 19" monitors don't have to scroll across the page! Also, have tweaked gamma to lighten it a tad and applied a small amount of noise reduction via Neat Image.

    My goal is to get out and shoot as much as possible with this new camera. As well, this is my first ever RAW shot. I played around in Photoshop CS4 and decided I liked the look of the photo with the sharpness all the way down (if I remember correctly ) After seeing the options I have to choose from and how I will be able to fix and white balance mistakes in post processing, I think I will be shooting RAW+Basic from now on.

    To much work. But honestly I didnt even see those in the picture. I was focused on getting the ground to look like I want I completely forgot to check for anything like that. I will try to clone it out tonight.

    Edit: I did a real quick job. Look better?
