    I just picked up a new lens and wanted to try it out. All shots were taken with my D300 and 85 1.4.

    I’m getting comfortable with the camera I am starting to see some improvement with my shots.

    Thanks for looking
  2. good

    -very good contrast and detail
    -nice natural colors
    -good exposures


    -3, 6 seem a bit noisy
    -to shallow DOF in 4 (fishing rod behind subject is out of focus)
    -horizon tilting to the left in photo 1
    -soft photo in 6 (lens can't focus that close or you moved while taking the
    photo or you did not get an AF lock)


    Take care Dwayne Oakes

    Yep - looks like you're getting to grips with it!

    Keep shooting and listening to advice/critique.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to give me specific comments on these shots, this is exactly the type of feedback that I am looking for and will use these suggestions to do a better job next time. I really don't do any PP work other than cropping and "quick fix" using MS Picture Manager, I just purchased NX2 so I will be learning that next. I see that I blew the focus on #4 and #6, I will keep plugging away and thanks again.


    Thanks. I have found this site to be very helpful and a great resource. Everyone is very friendly and willing to offer great tips and suggestions. I am going to keep on shooting and posting and I am very receptive to all advice and critiques, its very much appreciated.
