    A shot from MacKenzie falls in the Grampians. Not the greatest amount of water flowing from it at the moment. On a tripod, with polarizer and maybe a 2 stop ND grad (I can't remember if I used it on this particular shot though).

    Nice shot Rich, I agree technically not quite right but it does show us what you were experiencing. How early were you up for that shot?

    The aperture is wide open to give you a brighter viewfinder, and to aid auto-focus.

    Good luck with the D90.

    Oh and 3:2 is > than 4:3

    LOL...I was wondering if you were keeping it. Damn! If my existing 24-85 wasn't so convenient...I've really wanted the 24-70 but I don't know if I can give up the 15mm...especially with the FX...

    I really want a good 17-xx(x) mm f2.8 Nikkor, but the cost seems to be hard to justify over my existing setup for now (I know of the IQ differences). Especially hard now ive decided I want to focus on my UWA stuff for the time being (so will be spending money appropriately..)

    BTW Rooz's recent shots show a good example of how intimacy with a subject can really enhance a shot too (not to diminish his skills or the lens though in the process!)
    Cameras: Nikon D300, Panasonic Lumix G2, LX3 & FZ20
    Nikkor Lenses: 24-70mm f2.8 - 70-300mm VRII f4.5-5.6 - 50mm f1.4 G - 35mm f1.8 G - 50mm f1.8 - 18-200mm VR f3.5-5.6
    Other Lenses: Tokina: 11-16mm f2.8, Sigma: 17-70mm f2.8-4.5 Macro, Lumix: 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 & 20mm f1.7

    Currently working with the kit lens while I find my eye. The 3:2 aspect ratio feels weird to me after many years of 4:3 and I'm still getting used to it.

    Anyway, from a New Year's Eve Day shoot at my favorite park here in Chicago -- fourth outing with the camera and the first where I felt like I was starting to get reasonable results. I touched up the levels ever so slightly (raised the black point to the start of the histogram and lowered the midpoint a touch to bring back the original contrast and saturation. Other than resizing (everything done in Graphic Converter 6), those are the only tweaks. C&C welcome, by all means. (Yes, I'm bummed about the lens flare... if I were an early riser perhaps I could've gotten backlit cattails without the flare, although I would've lost the long shadows. Still, I don't want to live in a world where I'm an early riser...)

    Bob - this shot looks pretty sharp and nicely exposed to me - I admit I am a tad envious of the camera ~ if I were buying a 2nd body I would make my present D80 the 2nd body and my 1st choice is a D90 (even over a D300) D90 is so similar size and shape wise it would be perfect for me.
    I understand your feelings about proportions - although I now find 4:3 a bit odd hese days. Old SLR's seemed to be smaller and easier to hold - modern ones are like bricks - which is why the D300 might be too much for my liking..
    Please continue to share your photos and comments..BTW what lens did you use..??
