    Spooning a catch to square short leg.
    Is he trying out for the Black Caps or something?

    It's my fault I taught him to hit it back to me not to hit it miles from any fielders

    Thanks DPR. As you can see it was very cold out. It was worth it. Here's another pic' from Saturday night.


    VR 55-200, FL 200mm, ISO 200, 2s, f/22, Manual mode.

    Next time I will set the ISO to 100 so I can use a slower shutter speed.

    Since they took Highlander off T.V. I have to resort to the internet to learn about other Countries.

    So I took some spur-of-the-moment shots at the company Christmas party last night. I didn't get to arrange the set. The ambient light was rather low, but there was a little. I bounced the flash (my SB-600) to camera left and a little forward and up, it was a white wall. I used manual flash, I had decided to set my shutter speed at 1/60 in case the kids moved a little. I opened my aperture all the way, intending to stop it down a little later, but I had to bump my ISO up to 800 to get this exposure and I wasn't going to push it any higher (D50 here.) I also didn't want an overly "flashed" look by raising the flash power. So I kept the aperture at 1.8, and overall I think it worked. I did raise the exposure by half a stop in PP. None of the shots will be printed large (definitely not more than 8x10.)

    50mm, 1/60, f/1.8, ISO 800, flash 1/4 power, -2/3EV


    I also walked around for some "cheeser" shots. I used my Demb Flip-It bounce card and Demb Diffuser combo. I was fairly pleased with it when I was up close to people, but when they were far away, it seemed as harsh as bare flash (although I didn't try any to compare.) I raised this one by a full stop in PP, causing some of the noise you see. I didn't run any NR in either of these shots.

    I'd love some C&C, anything I could do better with my current equipment. The biggest limitation I feel from my D50 is only 5 focus points. I don't mind it much for landscapes, but it's just not good enough for portraits.

    Cool shot, Tomcat! I've been wanting to try something like that for a while, but I don't have a tripod or a street with something to rest my camera on.

    I like the shots, tori. The first one looks great! I think the lady is a bit distracting in the second shot, but not terribly so. I think you did a hell of a job with the equipment, most of my ISO 800 shots are typically very noisy with the D50.

    Here is a shot of a building near my office. The name of the building caught my eye, its called "The Ericks Building". This was also one of the first shots I took with the 28-70 lens.

    First week with the D90

    Thought I'd post this. It's one of my better ones from my first week with my D90.

    Thanks, Turo. I really like the crispness of your shot.
