  1. tough lighting
    good shots
    love the last one
    the earlier ones might be a bit OVERsaturated, perhaps... because of the low light

    you did a good job in these difficult shooting circumstances
  2. if it would be OK with you....
    i'd like to show you a redo of THIS picture:

    Camera, lens, settings, PP, any info?
  4. Thanks Greg!
    By all means. Show me what you can do.
  5. Hi Jim,
    D80 80-200 2.8 iso 500 up to 1250 1/500s f/2.8 sb800 fill flash, PP in Cature NX2
    Thanks, Fred
  6. thank you very much, fred

    just a bit of simple color correction and desaturation... with minimal sharpening:

  7. Or this?


    Cooler WB, -25 sat
  8. i like yours as well
    i think that DE-saturation is the key
    the lights (or lack thereof) make it so hard to shoot there
  9. The warm WB seemed to saturate, but also reduce the noise without the blur of NR. The desaturation is the key. I think you're right. So until I get the D700...
    Thanks Greg. Fred
  10. well,
    the D700 will surely help your low-light situation
    and the auto-wb is a bit better... i think

    losing the crop factor is something you can't forget, fred
  11. Would you be going for the D300 if you were in my shoes? Would that solve the iso issue sufficiently?
  12. honestly... NO
    you really need a full-frame sensor for better low-light capability
    based on LESS CROWDING of data on the larger sensor

    better low-light handling
    but..... need for longer and more expensive glass
    always a trade-off.....

    1 thing, however....
    the D300 is INFINITELY better than my D200 for low-light
    but.... the D3/D700 are SIGNIFICANTLY better than the D300
  13. I'm thinking the D700 with a 1.4 TC on my 80-200 2.8 is still better than the D300...Then I still have the D700 for everything else I don't need reach
