    I was cleaning up my hard drive and came across quite a few shots from my visit to the Harmony Safari park that I hadn't even processed. Here are some examples.

    All taken with the D2H / 70-200VR.

    the second one has great potential. looks cross eyed. I'd crop it a bit tight and run it vertical. bogen gimbal should be in tomorrow but I'll be out. guess I'll have to make a special trip before sunday.
     
  3. Frank,

    Why did you photograph me chewing and looking on both sides at the same time. :!: I'm ashamed of my attitudes. :).

    Beautiful pictures. Looking at all the pictures taken with a D2H by you and others NikonCafe fellows, I wonder if I must go for a D2Hs now or wait for the D200.

    LOL Dao. :lol:

    Actually, what I would strongly recommend is looking at either a new or used D2H. As long as you have the glass to fill the frame (or at least reasonable fill it), and you don't under-expose, there ain't a better cam out there, including the D2X.

    And the cool thing is, you can get a brand new one for around $1,900, or a mint used one for $1,200 - $1,500. I'm thinking that an X at four times that price, or an Hs at 2.5 times ain't worth the difference.

    And, you can get over 300 RAW shots on a 1GB CF card. 8)
     
  5. Thanks for the advice, Frank.
     
  6. Very nice shots Frank...why are they all making faces at you? :D :? :shock: :x :twisted: :wink:

    I too love that place! The first time Patrick and I took the kids out there the Camel came in the window on my side. I didn't know I could MOVE SO FAST!!!!!! Scared the bejeezus out of the kids....I almost wet my britches....Patrick about died laughing!!! And yet, we still go back time after time. I can't wait to go again now that I have a camera worthy of getting decent shots!

    Great shots Frank! I love that second one!

    Thank you very much Robert. These guys are very habituated, and think every person that comes through is going to feed them, so they followed our truck all the way around the compound. 8)

    They are neat animals though, and I really enjoyed photographing them.

    Regards,

    Flew,

    Some real classics. Sure glad you found them.. Love them all. Good shots.

    I have been trying to clean up my hard drive, and like you I find stuff I haven't processed. So there goes that day.

    Now I have a folder on the desk top the reads,

    " I don't know wht the hell this is"

    So much for house cleaning the hard drive.

    Gale,

    I know just how you feel. I have a 160GB hard drive where I keep my pictures, and I've got less than 4GB free space. Talk about your clean-up nightmare. :?

    Thanks for the kind words BTW. :wink:
