Thanks.....Yes I am a pilot, as are several folks on this forum. Are you also a pilot...or perhaps an aspiring one? I fly a Piper Seneca II & Piper Chieftain...although I started in a Cessna 150....those are awesome! When i saw the 1600 ISO title i thought that they would be really grainy, obviously not.
also a random note.. are you a pilot? (just saw avatar)
The entire team qualified for Nationals in Seattle (good for them)Nice series pal! Shot 7 of your daughter on the vault is spot on.
How'd the team do at State? Qualify for Nationals in my backyard I hope :wink:
Easy now...steady.... That 200 VR is a sweet lens....Randy,
You really have me contemplating going over to the dark side. I think that it all comes down to either picking up the nikon 200mm vr or selling my nikon lot and getting the new canon 1d mark 3 and getting matching canon glass.
Great shots. I wish I could get my dance pictures to come out as clean.
Thanks Miriam...the post process has been a challenge for me. This particular batch was not my best. I have found that I tend to over-complicate things sometimes...I added a step in Bibble Pro this go around that seems ot have over sharpened and created a strange pattern on these images.These are great! 1 is probably my favorite, but #9 is excellent! Did you have to do any special post-processing because of the high ISO?
Nice work, Randy. #'s 7 and 9 are killer!
Nicely shot!! Love the ones on the horse and the beam. You do get a lot out of that 1600 ISO...I always enjoy your stuff.
Thanks guys....I appreciate the kind words.....Nice work, #5 is very good.
LOL, another possible convert? Agree, take your time and rent something before switching. I did just that and made a decision that worked for me, but I left some $$$ on the table too in selling my Nikon kit. I was fine with that, but again, my advice is to try it out for yourself. Then sit down and weigh out the pros and cons that apply to your style of shooting.Easy now...steady.... That 200 VR is a sweet lens....
The 135 f2 is my next lens addition.....most likely later this fall.
After that, I will swap out for either the 85 f1.2 or a used 50 f1.0 for my current 85 f1.8 or 50 f1.4. Stopping down to f1.4 sounds soooo cool.
