    The rest of the set is HERE


    I take it that your sister is the one in the center. This pic is PERFECTly focussed to showcase her among the dancers. Excellent job. Looks like they had pretty good lighting for you to work with, a huge plus.

    I'll be headed down to San Diego on Saturday for Red Bull. Woo! This year, I'm renting Nikon's new, big, bad 400 f/2.8 VR.



    Bam! That, combined with my 2x and 1.4x teleconverters = 1120mm of overcompensation for my lack of manhood!!!!! I doubt I'll use it that way, though. I'll probably just stick to the straight lens or the lens plus the 1.4. Still, I wonder what kind of images I could get at an airshow with 1120mm? I might have to try it just for giggles.

    Mike, did you have any desire to go try your hand at airshow photography?

    I expect to see pictures of the pilots picking their nose, wiping sweat off their brow... and a couple nose hairs....


    while they're flying.

    That's me in my backyard holding my D3 with Nikon's AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR lens hanging off of it. Nine pounds of lens and three pounds of camera!!

    Sadly, I had to return it only an hour after I'd rented it. My photo partner had to cancel, so heading down to San Diego became impossible. Samy's was very cool about it and gave me a full refund on my rental fees.

    Realistically though, I don't think this would have been a great lens for moving targets like the Red Bull airplanes. It is REALLY heavy and unwieldy, and panning with it would have been a nightmare. I think it would be better for more static subjects like wildlife.

    I'll tell you what, though. Having that in my hands for even such a short while has now got me feeling quite inadequate about the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED that I own. The 400 is quite literally three times the size of the 70-200!

    There is a guy who sits with one of those on a monopod just below the TV cameras at Staples.

    My beefy-ass Manfrotto monopod was barely enough for this thing.

    That's a great question...HA! I tried to modify one of the pictures using HDR but I'm not sure if it's this one off the top of my head.

    I e-mailed this one to myself here at work and used Photoshop to bump up the contrast and sharpen it a little.
