I didn't get home until 8 tonight (awesome, but hot and long day) so I just quickly went through some of mine:

Connie,

You should have seen the spot where Jeff A climbed to take the shot of Sal, Jeffrey, and me! :eek: Actually, that was the only little bit of rock climbing (and only the few of us tried it). I only was able to get to that spot thanks to Sal & Jeffrey helping me over the rocks, and Jeffrey insisting that he sherpa my gear, LOL!

Sal,

I really love the color in all of your images... just lovely! Did you show your wife the shot of you posing with my 300 yet? :tongue:

Jeff A,

Great set -- and those turkey buzzards were very nice to pose for you like that!

Jeffrey,

Very nice! I see how the grad ND filters helped tremendously. Of course now I'm even more confused as to which kind of ND filters to buy... Yes, it looks like you need to clean your sensor! :tongue:

It really looks like you folks had a great time. Could someone put some names on the group photo for those of us who don't live in the DC area.

Well, it really was great to see everyone again, and to meet Sal's cousin Nacho, Sharon, and Jeff A.

Brenda, Jeffrey, Kenny and I went for a 17 mile bike ride afterwards... it was really nice. (On top of that time Kenny was riding while we were shooting, so he was really tired when we got home!) It was a good thing we packed our cameras away, though. :smile: Otherwise we never would have gotten anywhere -- too many photo ops! But that gave me an idea for my next visit, I think I'm just going to put the 18-200VR on the D200, put it in a backpack and just make those stops next time.

I'm off from work today to take my mother to the doctor, so I only have time to post a couple of shots -- Jeff and Jeffrey living dangerously, LOL! :tongue:

First Three

Hi Folks:

Nice shots folks! It was indeed fun, and a pleasure to meet so many Cafe members. I even met another Nacho, and that doesn't happen often!

Here are the first three I could get to, I have to go help my sister move, so more later.

It was really great getting to meet you all yesterday. I loved climbing the rocks to get to those prime shooting spots, but my legs sure are sore today:biggrin:. Hope to meet up with you all again in the near future. Here are a few images from me!

Nacho,

Your portrait shooting skills definitely shine! Looking forward to seeing more...

Sharon,

I enjoyed your series, and especially the shot of the three of us as we were climbing down, LOL!

Well, I did something really dumb -- I left my ISO at 640 on the D200 and forgot to change it when it got lighter. :eek: So I'm not too happy with most of my shots (blown highlights in the heron, noisy skies in the landscapes). :frown: Oh, well, another lesson learned!

So these next four are the result of my second try with Photomatix... This first one was taken with the fisheye -- that's Jeffrey on the far right side:
