I just wondered if there was something in the shot that I couldn't see especially with the positioning of the person.
You could have given some deep mumbo jumbo arty explanation about the relationship between the power of the human spirit and it's relationship with the power of nature as symbolised by the power created by humans (lines) and we probably all would have nodded blankly and thought that you were some sort of artistic genius.

The weather turned nasty on us yesterday, and I was out taking pictures, against common sense. I was testing out my new MC-36 remote, and I have to say, its amazing. This is what I got.

I'm glad that you have no common sense. Great capture.

Nice shot, but I'm curious as to why you purchased the MC-36 since the D200 has a built-in intervalometer? Basically, what differences do you find between the two other than the cord? Have you tried the ML-3 Remote for the D200 (not to be confused with the ML-L3 for the D50/70s)? Thanks.

All right, I've seen enough... You folks have corrupted me forever. I'm off the the camera store... Oh well, it's only money...

Darell, where the heck have you been? I tried calling your cell phone but I guess its disconected? Yes, the D200 has some of the features built in but you never know how long your shutter is left open when you go to Bulb mode... well unless you have good mental timing or a watch on hand. The MC-36 has a timer that lets me pin point my exposures to the second~ I find it rocks the most with long exposure over 30 seconds. The D200 has the built in Intervalometer which I find to be cumbersome to say the least. The MC-36 does the same thing, but is much much faster to set up and change, expecially when the light conditions may be changing rapidly. With the MC-36 my exposures comes out exactly how I want, rather than guessing on how long the shutter has been left open. Hope this helps.

Chris, that shot is amazing!! I went to your site hoping for EXIF and more shots from the series, to no avail I hope to see more though! And I noticed your new wedding up, that 2nd shot with the flower girl and the harp is ... ethereal. Wow. The lighting on #13 is interesting, too. And I love your trademark zoom effect, especially on #22. Great work!

Thanks for the nice comments. If you hold your moise over the right side of the images on my website, a little slide box opens up... from there you can click on the icon "Photo Info" and it will give you the EXIF data, but just in case, here is the EXIF data from the picture:

I've been fine and somewhat busy--I'm supposed to shoot the LV51's this week though I passed on today since it is a special day. I also have a new cell number since I switched phone carriers; however, since I have a Blackberry, emails will go to my telephone. Consequently, no excuse for not being able to get in touch. Shame, shame. LOL. Mental timing--one thousand one, one thousand two, etc.
At one point in time, I was considering the MC-36, but I don't want the cord. I was also informed that the inexpensive RPS wireless isn't that great, which is another reason I brought up the question of the Nikon ML-3 Remote which I know is pricy. I'm also considering something like the Pocket Wizard, but that is probably not going to happen unless I end up using both multi-SB800s and other lights.
And thanks for the "timing" information.
