    Well done Rod, the new body is working quite well in your hands. The clarity is remarkable.

    Thank you Frank. I must tell you that you that I was chimping these and hoped they looked as good at home as they did at the game.

    Color me impressed with this camera. It makes nice images despite the bald guy behind it. :biggrin:

    Nice shots! I really like the last one you added (batting!) Great timing.

    Looks like you and D300 are getting along quite well. Then again, the D300 is made for people who know what they are doing, so no surprise that you're putting up good shots.

    Mike , Jeff, Topher

    Thanks a bunch. As I start packing my gear for the football game I have a feeling it
    will be back to reality.

    Mike - I have enjoyed seeing your photos along with Alex, Frank, Randy and the rest of
    you guys. I have read countless hours of posts' just to get better. I look forward to
    making myself better each day. I am kinda hard to please. But I think that's kind of a good thing with photography.
