    cheers mark, i'm finding neutral with +1 sat works just great on the D300. Nothing done PP.

    Darren, these are great! Nice colors, action and that combo of the 1.4 /300 2.8 is sweet!
     
  5. nice shots Darren, missed these.

    Do you shoot this PC all around? Or just very bright conditions?

    Thansk Chris, I'm shooting it mainly in sunny conditions, I don;t like the orange skin tones I see with standard pC.

    I change to standard with +1 sat in dodgy light to maintain colours as the ISO goes over 1600.
     
  7. Nice shots Darren!. Love#1 :). Kind regards Graham
     
  8. Like that shot of the train wreck, your new borders are very nice too

    train wrec ? lol, youll have to explain that one !!

    re the borders, I use LR and have installed LR/Mogrify - it's a VERY useful export action for framing, sharpening, text (that text is read from the EXIF etc)
     
  10. I like #1 and #4 nice shooting as always Darren

    Thanks all.

    New lower vantage point is me sitting my fat a*** on my new pelican 1510, as opposed to my little stool, :wink:

    no, monopod as always. A fold-up camping stool is very good, used one all season. But, sitting on the case is nice too, and a tad lower
