    Dude, those are SICK. I love the first one. Composition is very dramatic...happy, yet lonely. The high contrast is nice, and this is an example where sharpness throughout the entire frame is really something useful. One vertical line (the lamp post), but nothing perpendicular to it adds another characteristic of interestingness. The vignette is also a nice touch (post-prod?). I really really like that one.

    The full-color sign is just a tad too green to me. If that was the effect you were after, alrighty then.

    Nice work, bro! I thought you were looking for a D200? Looks to me like you've got one already!

    Thanks! Yeah, the sign was too green, I'm going to go back and play with the vibrance slider a little bit and see what I can do.

    Another D200 is for the wife. She wants one now.

    From today's Civil War reenactment at Tierra Rejada Ranch. That's full-frame with the 500mm mirror lens.



    Another from the 500mm mirror. This one was converter to single file HDR and tonemapped prior to processing in Lightroom.

    Man, oh, man...

    I've been looking through a set of about 500 images I took of one of my best buddy's wedding five years back. When he found out he was getting deployed to Germany, they put the wedding together in a span of about two weeks and had to do it on-the-cheap. Since I'd just bought my D100, they asked me to photograph it for them. I did the absolute best I could back then, but all I could think of while sifting through all the technically horrific images was, "Man, I wish I'd been a better photographer for them."

    So I selected about a dozen of the best images and ran them through Lightroom (fortunately, I had them in .tiff format rather than plain old jpeg). I really turned some icky pictures into some rather keepsake-quality photographs!

    I've been itchy for a PRO camera as you guys know but when I looked around there really wasn't one that meets my needs. Some like the 5D aren't fast enough FPS and some like the 1D have only 10mpx. Technology hasn't reached the point where a (Canon) camera has what I need. Well not till December when the EOS 1D Marl IV comes out. 16mpx with 10fps and incredible ISO ratings that are off the charts. It's still not FF but I consider that a bonus for sports because the 1.3 magnification actually would be perfect for a 70-200 at a hockey game (1.6x is a little too close).

    I NEED A 1DMKIV!!!!

    Now to find $5000 to buy it. hmm..

    I still say you should take a serious look at a D3. I'm sure you can still get good money via eBay for your Canon gear. That would offset the additional cost greatly.

    I'm biased, I know, but looking at it objectively, that's what I'd do were I you. And if you look on the sidelines of major sporting events these days, you'll find that's what a lot of pro sports photogs have done as well.

    I just can't buy a D3 or any camera named after a Mighty Ducks movie.

    I'm thinking a lot of people will be dumping their 1dmk3's to get the mk4.

    It's only 10mpx but I'm hearing that is plenty when you have the IQ these have.

    I didn't need this fact pointed out to me.

    Ugh.
