I stay at the somewhat dumpy Super-8 or similar around I-95 and FL 50 / Cheney Highway. Usually around $45-50 / night. Just back on 50 from 95 is a water treatment / reserve that sometimes has some boids.
That intersection is about half way from either Viera or Merritt.
Great batch of photos! Don't know if I would have had the patience for tripod AND waiting for no other visitors around.
It has been several years since I was there, looks like lots of new displays - your shots are making me want to go back.
Thanks for sharing.
I agree with Randy. Since I got the 24-120 f/4 I have not even mounted the 24-70 and am also considering its sale.
The 24-70 is a fantastic lens, that can't be argued. But for me the versatility of wider zoom range and VRII tilt the balance
to the 24-120.
No offense to the above photo, but that's not what you're after. Keep the rail out of the photo unless it is behind the horse.
You also won't have time to wander about... the race will be only about 2:00 and depending where you are stationed
you'll get only one or two chances at the...
Since all of LR's edits are non-destructive, even for JPG, I don't think Picassa will see them unless he first does an export.
It shouldn't be long before he ditches Picassa so this shouldn't be an issue for long.
Poor guy... I'd be making faces too if somebody stuck a camera in my face while I was trying to dump.:biggrin:
Good shot and good processing - I like the tones.
This is one sure to bring some family laughs (and embarrassment) in a decade or two.

I've not used my 14-24 2.8 since getting this lens. Not saying the IQ is the same, but the 16-35 is plenty close for me
and I like the lighter weight and wider range.
I'd find out, if you can, from the previous owner just how old it is. If it is under 5 years old I'd compose a nice letter to Nikon asking their assistance in this highly unusual failure.
I'm finding more and more that with all the adjustments, including local, that can be done with LR and ACR I'm having less and less use for CS5.
On the occasions where I do make extensive CS5 adjustments I save a PSD... it isn't that big of a deal.
BTW - ACR has gotten so good I don't miss NX2 a...
I just did the same thing - Venice to Rome and used the 16-35 quite a bit. I'm very seriously thinking of selling the 14-24.
The IQ isn't quite there, but for me the FL range is much better. An in real life (at least mine) the IQ isn't going to make a lick of difference.
I moved to Win 7 64 and did a clean install of the OS and reinstalled all my Adobe products.
I've pretty much gotten everything behaving as it did before with the exception of Bridge.
Before when I double clicked a NEF ACR would open - and when I pressed Enter
NX2 would open.
Now no matter...
Ill probably be in the neighborhood early Feb. Right now I'm in FL, but it is TFC. I'm going home and coming back toward the end of the month.
I was at Venice last week and it was VERY quiet. I didn't even get the camera out of the car. Maybe I was early or just caught a quiet day...
I'm headed down next week too, but I'll be on the West coast.
I'll assume you're looking for birding opportunities. Merrit Island and Viera Wetlands are two good places to shoot. Both are
in the Cocoa / Space Coast area. If you do get to the West side Ding Darling NWP on Sanibel Island is...
That often happens to skies... I'm sure there's a reason, but it escapes me.
You can try selecting the sky with in PS and then either using the blur tool or one of the blur filters to help even out the area.
I don't have 7, but with Vista you can run MSCONFIG, go to the startup tab and uncheck Adobe Gamma.
You could also try uninstalling it.
Are you sure it is installed? IIRC, my most recent Adobe products haven't even tried to install it.
I always bring along lots of old time radio shows... stuff like Fibber McGee, The Shadow... stuff like that. Really helps the time fly by.

I was there last summer and NOBODY checked my bag or anyone else's in my family. My wife and nephew both had
medium sized backpacks, nobody gave them a look. I saw nothing saying that there was a 200mm limit. I had a 300mm with me.
Not saying it isn't the case, just reporting my...
