    This is an awesome image Dave.
     
  8. Thanks Torben. This little house is just a few miles from my office, and when I drove by and saw the maturing wheat last spring, I had to stop and grab this shot.

    Looks like a Turtle or something. That freaked me out!

    Don,

    You're going to enjoy the 17-55 IMO. Here are a few examples of its versatility that I thought I would share...Note that with the exception or resizing and slight sharpening for internet friendly viewing, these are straight out of the camera (either a D70 or D200). Enjoy...

  11. Don,

    It is the lens most often mounted to my D2x.
    You are gonna love it.
    While certainly not my best here are a couple of recent quick and casual takes.

    Morgan, my beautiful little Grand Neice.

    and my precious little grandson makes a discovery in the beach sand.

    81556571.
     
  12. I think it's a monkfish. I love to eat monkfish but this one looks like it can eat me! I shot this on the dock at Montauk last summer - one of my first shots with a then new D200 and 17-55.
     
  13. My most used lens as well. Love the ability to shoot wide open to really "pop" the subject. This one was taken at the NY Botanical Gardens in the early fall; I just happened to stumble by as the groundskeeper had just finished watering his tulips.

    Why can I never seem to post a photo from the Flickr site directly into this site? Infuriating!!!

    Hey - I figured it out! Now I can concentrate on solving global warming and bringing peace to the Middle East!!!!!!!

    Paul, my friend, thank you for your kind words! It took a lot of post-processing! The original EXIF was f/8 at 1/750s, ISO 200 at 17mm. I used Photoshop to edit.

    Converted to B&W using either Lightroom conversion or Channel Mixer (I don't remember which). Then darkened the blues in the sky to create more contrast with the clouds by extracting the sky into a separate layer and editing it separately. Then the usual retouches (USM for local contrast and then sharpening).
