I think things are finally starting to mesh for me these are the first images from the d2 that I believe are worthy of that $5,000 price tag. Look at the detail in those feathers this is what I wanted this is what I've been shooting for. I know there are other factors involved in a good image but for me it's all in the details. My time was very limited today and I was only able to take about 15 shots however of those 10 were keepers I think that is a pretty good average. And I'm sorry if I appear to be blowing my own horn in here but I am pretty damn pleased with myself Now if I can just learn to do this consistently.
