    I went back over to the dam this past weekend, and got quite a few shots. For whatever reason, I'm just getting them processed. All taken with the D2H / 300 2.8 + 1.7 TC.

    Got a little cat:





    Just a head shot:

    Thanks for looking in. :smile:
  2. Nice colors on these, Frank!

    Thanks guys and gals.

    Ben, I haven't used the 1.7 on the 300 f4, but Harris and a few others have. It is my understanding that they were less than satisfied. Right now, I'm still not convinced that I'm getting shots as sharp with the 1.7 on the 300 2.8 as I do with the lens wide open and with the 1.4, but my problems could be due to lens shake because of the extra FL.

    The EXIF is below:

    I'm glad that you asked because I just noticed that I haven't changed Mike's cam over to ColorSpace II (AdobeRGB) since I got it. Duh!! :cool: 
  7. Hmm I always shot in Color space II the UPS guy must like using sRGB

    I don't think that I changed it, but who knows. Guess I need to talk to the UPS guy. :biggrin:

    Hi Frank
    I would love to look at these, but see only a red X, and it will not open. Some pics open on the site, but yours and Randy;s are the first not to allow me in. Do I do something wrong?

    That is weird, although I will have to admit that these images are challenging at best for dial-up (about 0.5MB). Sorry that you are having a problem, but I don't think that it's anything that you are doing wrong.
  13. Frank, great serie!!!. Good exposure and colors. I like the dynamism captured in #4.

    Thanks Dao. Would you believe that #4 is full frame?!!? He was really close.

    When do you think you might be able to visit FL again? I probably will go back down in Feb, and I hope that the FL regulars plus Mike Mac and other out-of-staters will be able to join us. We would love to have to come shoot with us. :smile:
  15. Beautiful shots Frank. I have always liked Cormorants and you have really captured some nice ones. The one with the red tailed fish in its mouth is special and you managed to get three shots of it. Way to go.

    Thanks Gordon. Actually, I got a bunch of shots of it (remember, I was shooting with the machine gun :rolleyes: ). I just posted three. :biggrin:
  17. You gotta love the machine gun.

  19. As usual Fantastic !
