    I was wandering in the vast expanse of my back yard (about 20 x 30 feet) I noticed that the Cypress trees were looking especially photogenic (they don't let me out much anymore).

    About 60 footers.

    So, landscape?

    Or portrait?

    The portrait's nice, the landscape messes with my mind

    What do you mean do we see anything, a couple rodents nicely subject isolated. Nice photo and of wild (non zoo) critters is a bonus.

    The 60th anniv. Tammy that I have is selling for $450 on Amazon. Don't know if that is in your budget or not, it is less than I paid.

    Yup $450 would stretch the budget after investing in the Epson 1430 (absolutely fantastic prints) and the taxman done took that much... and a little more. For now the 55-200 VR (actually a surprisingly good lens) will have to do. The extra reach will have to be by cropping.

    But the Tammy is at the top of my "to acquire" list. Getting out of the back yard is another problem.

Size:  4.15 MB I'm a newly Canon-to-Nikon crossover & this my 1st attempt with my Nikon D800e and portable studio lights. The detail just blows me away. I used my D800e with a Nikon 24-70 2.8 lens.

    Good shot, but.... Whoa, scale it down a little... maybe 960 x 640 for example.

    Thanks, glad to be here! It's nice to receive a reply in a forum like this in the same year I post something! lol! Is there a quicker way to scale them down other than using the save feature in Photoshop. Or is that the way to go?
