    My time is up.. Looks like my time is up with the lens. I wanted to try and get out today for some waterfall shots but the rain has returned for the weekend. I had great fun with this classic and definitely learned allot but its time to pack it up and send it on to the next person on the list...

    Thanks Rich, I also brought along my Sigma 10-20mm for a wider shot but I liked the FOV and detail the 35mm f2 produced better.... -Kent

    Jose, I use CS3's Save for WEB feature which unfortunately strips the EXF info from the image. I wish it had an option to select to retain the info... anyway here's the EXF for the shot: D2Xs, 15s at F22, ISO 100, Auto WB, Aperture Priority, Spot metering Here are some tips for this type of...

    Glad you liked them Jose. In honor of our troops past and present admission was free for all active personnel and Veterans. To bad you didn't live closer :frown:

    Thanks Steve! I thought the retro conversions fit. These older pilots sure have allot of character in their faces.. might be all the G-forces they've endured. :smile:

    "Seeing The World Through A Single Lens"

    Thanks! I'm starting to get a better feel for the lens now. The focus is a bit loose near infinity and I find I need to move it in and out a few times to attain the focus I want.

    "Seeing The World Through A Single Lens"

    Thanks Rich! I'm originally from Nevada so It took awhile to get use to the rain. I love the trees, mountains and waterfalls here and only being 45 min from the coast and 15 min from Portland makes it worth it....sort of :smile:

    Thanks Jose! I was hoping for a sunny day but just wasn't in the cards. Oh well, the overcast is more indicative of what one would see here anyway. I see you're on the list, I'm looking forward to seeing your posts from Carrollton Texas.

    The Lens has safely arrived in Oregon. Thanks Rich! Can't wait to get out and start shooting. Starting with the obligatory shot right out of the box. Looks like I'll need to work on my manual focus skills... BTW - Whoever added the box, it was a great idea!

    Rich, great shots to end the series with. I really like the color and detail in your ball park shots. I look forward to my time with the lens and hope to capture images as good as yours. There's the International Air Show in Hillsboro this weekend which I have tickets to. Not sure how I'm going...

    The battery is charged the same way a laptop battery is charged which is through the ac adapter when plugged in. The Netbook is really nothing more than a small laptop. I've added the following to my netbook: - USB wireless mouse - External USB hard drive- uses usb power so no ac adapter...

    I really didn't need a laptop all I really needed was this little gem. I paid $330 for this Gateway netbook which is just a re-branded Acer Aspire. Runs with a dual core Adam processor, 1gig on board and a 160 gig hard drive. It does exactly what I want which is to upload my cards and display...

    Hmmm.. - Air siren sounding from the fire house at noon everyday - Atomic detonations out at the Nevada test site - Duck and cover drills in the classroom - Going with dad to Safeway to test Vacuum tubes from our B&W Motorola console TV. Big hole in the side where dad would kick it. :)...

    D200 to a D2X?

    I have both the D200 and D2xs.. I upgraded to the D2xs from the D200 and enjoy the D2x's ergonomics, pro-build and fast crop shooting in my wildlife shots. The D2xs will give you a slight edge in image quality that I could never quiet get with the D200 but again it was a slight improvement. The...

    Cocoa Belle

    Very nice shot and what a great pose. I have to agree about the slight yellow cast to the shot and the sign next to her arm is a bit distracting. Overall a great shot which I'm sure she would be happy to have.

    Thank you! I was surprised how the exposure came out considering it was handheld on an overcast day. I only applied a levels adjustment and bit of unsharp.

    DAM - How do you do it?

    I always transfer them to an external harddrive then burn to DVD. A 4gig CF card fits nicely on a fresh DVD blank. The DVD now holds/archives all my unaltered negatives. I then work the images from my external drive. _kent

    What did I capture besides a basketball game?

    I'm thinking the same thing.. if you look at the angle of the shadow from the players legs cast against the black background of the stands it would suggest a separate flash went off. Looks like you took this shot vertical which puts your flash off to the side but that angle wouldn't be enough to...
