Wow.... just amazing! The D3 is a great camera, I'm sure, but it can't do this kind of work alone! You're very good.

Harish:

some great shots of Skimmers. I like #1 and #5.

BUT.. is it the D3? Don't undervalue your ability.
Obviously the D3 helps a lot, but your D2Hs sample seems like it was under very different conditions (was it on a different day?)

I was fortunate to shoot lots of Skimmers for a couple of summers and they are a joy to shoot, and a great learning experience in developing shooting skills. i noticed a huge difference in quality when i switched lens (and I was test driving a 300 f4 afs shooting skimmers when i realized I needed to buy this lens) but i think AF, lens quality and ability in combination are whats important.
I shoot a D2H and have had good results with Skimmers, but the light, exposure and ability are as important factors in the final image whether its a D3 or a D2H. I'm sure the AF difference is minimal in creating these great shots.

Anyway don't tell your wife that!

wembley,
you make some great points here.
I like my D2Hs, but as skeptical as I was(I even brought up the matter with Ron Reznick and he thought it was a bit much for my hobby) I am convinced now.
I like the details and DR better(Ron said it was easy to fix but.I dont have the time) and I trust my equipment more now so no time wasted while shooting.
Love your gallery by the way.
