    Not mine, but I thought is was awesome. What happens when you stick a high powered strobe in your mouth:

    That one above is FREAKY! Wonder if he cooked his tonsils?

    As for yours, Sam, I like the abstractness of the Halloween garland against the blue sky.

    Nope. The 70-200 is a bit too big for me to pack easily when I work. That was taken with the Nikkor ED 28-200 f/3.5-5.6 G lens that I've had forever. It's only four inches long when at 28mm and it weighs about a quarter of what the big lens does. It's okay for bright stuff, and its a sharp-enough lens (not bad DOF for f/5.6, eh?). I'll eventually replace it with the 18-200 VR, though.

    Oh, and that pic, though it was pretty sharp as-shot, was detail-sharpened a tad in Lightroom.

    keep this thread going... I'm a lurker, only because I love photography, and with every day I'm getting more and more into it. Through work and stuff I've actually gained lots of experience with photoshop and a bit with lightroom...

    yet... I can't afford to buy a DSLR yet. I've been looking at the Nikon D80 for weeks now... (I'm a Nikon guy, the Canon just doesn't sit right in my hands)...

    any ideas where I can find an affordable kit?

    Best Buy has it packaged with the 18-135 kit lens (POS) for $1300.

    B&H has it packaged with the 18-55 lens (GREAT lens) for about $980.

    If you can hold out, hold out until Black Friday. Ritz/Wolf always has killer bundle sales.

    I can vouch for this statement. It is a PHENOMINAL lens for the price.

    Once I sell my other boat I'm going big time and getting the new AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR It will be mine this christmas....

    I heart VRII.

    Anyone got any suggestions for an excellent quality photo printer that will do big stuff? Maybe 11" x14" borderless?

    I'm looking (so far) at the Epson Stylus Photo R2400.

    A buddy of mine has the 2400 and it does make some nice 11x14s. But nothing any better than you can get printed at Costco or Sam's Club. It always been more economical to get reprints and enlargements at those two places than paying the dough it takes to get a worthwhile photo printer.

    I guess that's true. The problem is that anything I've ever sent out for printing has come back WAY darker than the image as I've processed it. I'm not sure if that is because of the issues that ValleyFan and I were discussing with color gamuts and such, and I haven't tried printing from image files exported under sRGB. Experimenting to get the prints to look like they should could cost major dough and time. Having my own printer here on my desk would at least save me the time factor.

    There's got to be a point of diminishing returns with store-made prints after which it makes sense to own your own printer.
