    Sigh...

    Gorgeous, Dez... I just wish I had as much luck this morning with my D300 and the 18-200mm. Took a bunch of photos, and ended up deleting every one of them - too much camera shake, I guess... :mad: 

    Glad to see you have a steady hand and a photographic eye...!!

    As always, AWESOME!!!!
     
  4. Thanks Charles :smile:
     
  5. Thanks Lyndee.

    Did you have VR on? Leave it on ALWAYS unless you're on a tripod. On a tripod turn VR off.
     
  6. You're too kind Sanford. Thanks! :smile:
     
  7. Great as always Dez! Love the one with the sailboat.

  8. These are superb, Dez. The red brick building to the right of the Governor's Island ferry building in the last one is where I work.

    Regards,

  11. Thank you Mike.

    Old looking sailboats and new buildings make a nice contrast, huh? :smile:
     
  12. Thank you Paul :biggrin:

    So you get to see the opposite view daily! You are in front of the U.S. Customs House?
     
  13. Thanks Mart.

    I never leave home without the CP. Does wonders to your photographs :wink:
     
  14. Thank you Gabriel :smile:

    The first photo is actually an 8 vertical frame panorama.

    You were right, Detective Dez...VR was off (I don't know what my problem was) and I was also in a rush yesterday morning. Did a repeat in the afternoon, and there was a huge difference. Not a big enough difference to brave posting them yet, ya understand, but a difference nonetheless...:smile:

    Thks!
     
  16. Detective Dez? That's a first, LOL!

    Users of VR lenses know that from experience. I tried using it on and off & in low light, VR clearly makes a difference :smile:

    Nice shots, great colors, Dez. I agree with what others say, I should definitely start using my CP more often. As for the lense, I prefer the 16-85 now that I have it, but I'm keeping the 18-200 as it is great for travel.
     
  18. Thank you Klaus-Peter. The CP is great outdoors. I own one and it fits all my lenses (18-200 VR i use with a step ring)

    :biggrin:
     
  19. Dez,
    very well done

    i like them..... a lot
