    Thanks. You know I'd considered selling my Xs recently. Now I am not so sure.

    I'm just always taken with the color of Clingman's Dome/Newfound Gap area first of October. So, I spent some time looking for these spots today, no, not every one is a landscape perfection, but I can still enjoy the color and mix of the landscape. and ahhh, I've always enjoyed the 17-35. So much so I updated to a almost new one last year.

    I like that color...What time of the day was it when you took that image??
  5. I agree. I took some fall colors with my D2x last week and I almost forgot what a great camera it was.

    The shot was at 9:50 AM, the sun was directly behind me, coming in from North Carolina, so I'm shooting west basically. I can't recall if I used a Heliopan polarizer or my Singh-Ray Color Combo. But I think it was Singh-Ray color combo. I warmed the color temp up just a bit in RAW panel of photoshop, some sharpening, a little saturation, but not much. The sky was already luscously blue with polarizer. Thank you guys.
  9. How can you still shoot with that old relic??

    Thanks Louis, and Mitchell, I was worried about running the shutter count up on my other cams. ;) 

    Arthur, thanks much!

    Now, I have one more, and as you view, understand the conditions were very harsh, but I ask, how it came out anyway, to see if there's anything here. Again, D2Xs 17-35. you may have to view this full size to see all the mountain detail in the background.
