Very nice photo Jimmy. I keep looking at these used but haven't pulled the trigger yet. I keep convincing myself to save the money toward a 70-200 VR. Pictures like this, however, make me think it may be time to get off the fence.
The colors, and sharpness in this photo are wonderful. What settings were you at when you shot this? Looks like you used some fill flash also, yes?
Thanks for the pic.
