    Gale,

    That is what got me. I walked into my local camera store for ink carts for my printer. The saleman knows me there and put the D2x on the counter with a 50mm 1.4 on it.

    I know how a mouse feels when it sees cheese on a trap now. :D

    These pictures are very nice. Did you use the 50mm to take them? Also, did you use flash? Congratulations on the new camera!

    Jess,

    This was with a 60mm micro Nikor with 2 SB600's and medium sized softboxes. The web images don't do it justice.

    Charles,

    I've seen some very nice shots with the new X, but these are right up there with the best.

    Just excellent.

    You must (and should....;-)) be very pleased.
     
  8. Your right about the detail!! Well done!! :D :D :D
     
  9. Hi Charles,

    I love the low-contrast lighting, the petal curves and the little touch of orange of #1. Congrats for great work done here.

    Thanks for the nice comments. I did learn something from this shoot. When using SB800 as master and SB600's as remote. If you press the DOF button, the flashes fire thier modeling lights. Thats an added bonus fr my speedlight studio. :)

    I also learned that my speedlights had plenty of power when working with the D70 at ISO200. D2x and ISO100 requires twice as much light. :(


    Time for bigger lights. :)

    I thought drag racing was an expensive hobby and look at me now. :lol:
