    Great Steve! Especially that #1 with it's repeating symmetry. Of course the animals are very cool too... :) 

    Looks like you had a good time with your all-in-one cam!

    thnx chris,

    wished i could string together all 3 shots of the whole set of cars, but since i didn't use tripod, i thinkk it might be too hard to match em.

    i was a little disappointed in my flights shots,

    taken in a small amphitheater, focus lock was just too painfully slow, and so were the shutter speeds. we went to a bird exhibition which was cool, but no good flight shots. guess you can't have everything in a 1.5 lb pkg. more to come!

    Hi Steve,

    Welcome to Florida. We're having beautiful spring weather already so you hit it perfectly.

    I had no idea that the 28-200 could do that! Your pictures are super!

    Good job and keep them coming.

    Thanks everyone,

    Having fun with this very lightweight rig, although it's low light limitations are rearing it's ugly head. Often I'm either getting blurry shots, due to slow shutter speeds, or I'm forced to go to very high ISOs to maintain speed., if I think about it. Got new stuff up so check them out too.
  12. Steve,

    I like the aligator pic because he looks like he is playing possom. Just waiting for some poor soul to come near him so he can have dinner.

    Thnx Pat,

    I'm still amazed at how good that one turned out. I believe that's called a Roseatte Spoonbill.

    Ahh, Florida!

    Yes, the photo ops here are quite abundant, aren't they?
    Re the little lens that could. You do need good light for it, and ya gotta try to keep that shutter speed up, and, of course, having some seasoned post processing skills helps too. That siad, I do miss my D2H/X, with their much easier access to the various camera settings, and the vert shutter release, but not for it's wieght. Been shooting 90% of my stuff in portrait orientation. Miss my 70-200 too!

    Thnx Catz,

    When I saw that big fella, I thought of that classic line "My what great big teeth you have"!
