    This was shot off my deck using a D200 and my newly acquired 35-70 f/2.8. Shot RAW with matrix metering and -2/3 exp compensation to prevent overexposing the yellow house. Added 100,.3.0 smart sharpen after downsizing for posting to web. Settings are 70mm, f/5.6, 1/125sec.

    What do you think?

    original.

    I think you may be right. I noticed after posting that the houses aren't all that sharp. My focus point is in the middle and I should have probably gone for f/11 and the extra DOF.

  5. Thats very nice shot. What white balance did you use for this pic or you corrected while converting the raw ? I usually use cloudy -3 white balance all the time. Most of the time it works nice but while converting I always try to balance a bit. But sometime not satisfactory ...

    For this shot I used Auto WB with no WB or Color correction in Photoshop. I find that works well with the D200 for most of my shots. I always shoot RAW, though, just for the occasional instances where I do need to adjust WB.
