    Nice shots, GoMizzou.

    Very subtle use of the HDR, the SF is real nice. A much more 'urban' take on the GGB instead of the typical shots that are out there. Good job.

    (sorry for the lack of critique, but the photo threads tend to get hits in bunches it seems.)

    A couple I grabbed in the Japanese Garden that's nestled in Balboa Park, right next door to a sewage treatment plant.

    As long as the wind is blowing in the right direction, you'd never know you were in the middle of Van Nuys.

    Here are a couple that I got while hanging out in the Japanese Garden area of Balboa Park. I wish I would have found this place a month ago when there was more blooming going on...

    I think...

    I'd love THIS ONE

    Amazon.com: Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED-IF AF-S VR DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens: Camera & Photo

    but I think I may have spent my quota for a little while and don't think the wife would appreciate.

    any suggestions?
    In addition to what nocturn has said.. Another additional one that would give you the same coverage & range as the 18-200mm is the 55-200 mm f/3.5-5.6 VR. They are at least half as expensive as the 18-200 ($300ish or so vs. $650-700). Although you would have 2 lenses instead of one. And the 55-200 takes pretty good pictures as well. I got both the 18-55 & 55-200 when I bought my D80 last year. I also thought about the 18-200.

    Now having said that..What I would like to get would be a 70-200 f/2.8 VR...However, they're a tad bit expensive. Cheaper alternative I thought about was the 80-200 f/2.8 with no VR. Would mainly use in low light, motorcross races (Daytime & nightime) & what not. Still need to get a good wide angle prime one too..Maybe 50mm, 1.4 or 1.8..Dunno..

    Good luck with your choice!

    I'd say to go for the widest aperture, like the 2.8. It's not all about using it at 2.8 all the time either but it just seems like the 2.8 lenses are sensitive enough to get all of those subtle tones.

    I just got an email from a Chief Petty Officer in Mississippi who wants to use my Lone Sailor pic in a memorial because "your picture seems to further emphasis the solitude taken on by every sailor in the United States Navy even more than the statue itself does and would be the basis of my memorial ".

    (sniff)

    I told him, no way.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    Yes and no.

    I was upside down, shooting back through my legs while bending over.

    That's what the information pamphlet from the gift shop said to do, I guess when the blood rushes to your head you get dizzy and have all sorts of zen type experiences.

    I wish there were clouds that day.

    Remarkable! You got the horizon straight too! I can't do that....
