    Ashley and I went on a marriage retreat over the weekend. My folks happened to be in the same area too, so we had lunch. Here's a few...

    70-300mm VR!

    17-55mm DX

    BTW, all this food was courtesy of the Daniel Boone Inn in Boone NC. They serve their meals family style. They just keep bringing plates and bowls of food out....as you can see, my Father was enjoying that quite a bit. As an aside, I was amazed at how well Matrix metering handled the bright outdoors in this shot by perfectly exposing the subject and ignoring the windows.

    17-55mm DX
    I made this shot while explaining to a fellow photographer at the retreat with us, how my flash bounce card works. The 'Currie 2:11' is an inside joke. I liked the image, so I thought I'd share it.
  2. Josh, that shot of your wife is fantastic. Nice composition.

    Got one without the shades?

    Thanks, Greg. His kindness and warmth comes across well in this picture. He is very easy-going and I think that this shot captures that very well.

    Thanks, that was the Sigma 70mm 2.8. I sold it to a member to afford the 105mm VR...that and I cut myself on it's oh so sharp pictures all the time!
