    Hey Don did you see on the wide angle shot on the right hand side about a third of the way up you 'captured' someone composing a shot with live view also.

    No, I had not inspected the shots for detail, other than sharpness and contrast.

    I used all four lenses that I took with me, but was disappointed with the result of the Minolta AF 24-105mm f/3.5-4.5 'D'. Next time I use this combo of lenses, I'm replacing it with the Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) MACRO

    I won't even post the results I got from the Minolta, today.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    looks like a p&s though, but plenty of cameras there I'm sure.... don probably got some of the best shots (not including the media)

    Thanks for the EXIF. On the 2nd to last, you cut Todd in half . At 200mm, you could have pretty much filled the frame on that one.



    edit:.... oh yeah, did you get any 2012 T-shirts?

    Nah, did not see any, but I was so exhausted from standing there, for four hours, they could have had naked dancing girls and I could have cared less. I just wanted to get back to my truck and go home.

    With my back injury, prolonged standing is really tough on me, especially with the heavy lenses hanging around my neck. No more of these, that's for sure.

    Tell me more Don of the Minolta 24-105 was it just not the right lens for the situation, the location the lighting or what? This is a lens on my 'watch to buy it' list, so advice welcomed.

    They are just so amazing. Here she was in Colorado today with Hank also. And some I found on flickr from today at Dubuque!

    The competition was out in full force I see! Looks like she could use some SSS!

    Question Make the call

    The Minolta 24-105mm was not sharp at all, shooting infinity. That's about it. Compared to my other shots, it was rather tragic. So, I learned something, today.

    Here's one of the better 24-105mm shots ... you decide.

    I'd say they are really sharp (from the downsized pictures). I'd love to see them in person! Texas is just so insignificant right now. She came to Dallas for a "luncheon" $10,000 a plate, 100 invited/attended = EASY $1mil for ~2 hours.

    Thumbs up I like the way you think!

    I appreciate the accolades.

    Having that LONG lens really delivered some spectacular shots, in my estimation. I do not believe you can go wrong having one of those in your bag.
