RR - I really like #2, my only wish would be to power down the flash a bit so what looks like a sunset happening in the background would be more visible.
Glenn - those are some fantastic shots! The tin-foil reflector is really working some magic, that was a great idea to use. I agree that the nice saturated backgrounds really make the shot. Very nice work! Interesting idea pushing two stops to get your shutter speed, any noticeable loss in shadow detail on the full sizes?

I got skunked on the photo contest. There were some amazing shots entered and the winners were deserving for the most part. Maybe next year.
I did get some good shots for the wife's blog anyways.

Here are some of the great pics I was up against. The one of the girl with the porpoise won Best of Show, it's an amazing pic. If you look closely you will see one of Gal VanIZed roller skating and one of my dog Hali at the very end.

Really nice work FBJ! Looks like something out of a magazine. Very cool. HeShootsNScores is right when you mess around you don't mess around... That doesn't make sense does it?

BTW, I just got back from a trip to Europe and took the D300 with my 18-200VR convenience/travel lens. I got there and it wouldn't focus properly. It has some kind of internal problem that I could not work around. I had to revert to using my wife's point-n-shoot. Two lessons here: take a back up lens, and don't bank on the 18-200VR. This is the second time it is going in for service, and I'm not the only one having trouble with that lens.
