    You did great.. D2x in the right hands sure produces excellent results.
    Your use of DOF is excellent also.
    Very impressive photography.

    Thank you for sharing.

  4. Thanks gale for watching.
    Yep that 85 1.4 creates a fantastic dof. I love that lens.

    Great images. I love the photojournalism effect. Sad to see such a beautiful building waste away as it is. As to you lenses. I have the 50mm f/1.4 and have found that you must get to f/4 for the best sharpness. As for the 85mm f/1.4, it is great all the way through.
  6. Alex, these shots are great. I love the composition and the subject matter. Very powerful images. Nicely done! Glad to see you're putting the X to good use!
  7. I don't know what it is with that 50 mm lens. I prefer the 85 mm. It's such a great lens and i love the DOF wich it can produce.
  8. Hi kevin,

    Thanks for taking the time to comment.
    It was a very nice and inspiring place to visit. So much details to see. I will go back there for sure.
    My first impression with the d2x were soso, but after some ps work and the room for cropping i must say wow.
    I think it wil take some time to get used to that "machine"
