D800, natural light, 85mm 1.4G.

With the D800, you can get a really tight crop to fill the frame with your subject without a macro lens. 85G has a crappy minimum focus distance. But this almost looks like a macro lens shot. But I was about 3 feet away when I shot this. 50% crop.

You’re WB seems to be all over the place. Nice subject tho. :smile:

I’ve had my D800 for a couple of days, and you really can crop down with that puppy.

Each image is done differently in post. These are not straight out of camera. I shoot RAW and edit each image for different looks when I'm bored. ;) They were all initially shot with the same WB. But after going through Capture One and Photoshop, they ended up in different places. :) If I were shooting something for reals, and not just me dickin' around they'd be consistent.

That 1911 sure looks clean, has it been fired? :smile: Excellent lighting capture the simple lines of the pistol. SS I'm guessing?

Got about 1,000 rounds through it. Only had it for a few months. And yep, SS. It shoots great! I have another Brown on the way as well. A Special Forces II Carry in Gen III (black coating). Cell phone pics:
