and i thought he was kidding me w/ his postHuh???
ofcourse i use my gear.and i thought you were just kidding.....
if you think this is a so-so shot post something better, OK ?
or how about just post something, anything will do....
I looked at your last 20 threads, do you use your gear or just comment on others
ofcourse i use my gear. I just don't flood the forum with it. I know you happy with your new toy but this is "lens lusted" area, it is for something stunning, lusting. Just don't spam the forum with it. Didn't you just have a thread about this (same guy) few days ago: https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=236287
Randy, let not escalate this to something out of control. I don't mean to insult your picture. Just my honest opinion. You don't like it, I'll not comment on your future thread. Cool? :biggrin:
Randy, honestly I'm not sure what it is. Both versions (the new one you put up) as well as the old one, just seem a little off to be. I think its an insane image and perfectly timed, but for some reason the quality seems a bit lacking. Maybe its just my eyes playing tricks on me, as I know the 400vr is a fantastic lens and you are a fantastic shooter :biggrin:thanks Joey
i don't see it but it was resized w/ MS' resize utility so I could post the O version and keep the EXIF
I'm gonna upload the original and try posting that to see
, it's your eyes, your monitor, or you are joshing me (like that bubble guy)
As I am looking for some longer glass, I always look at your threads and pictures. These are always very informative for me as they give me a lot of information about the possibilities of these lenses. Keep on posting!! :wink:
thx JeffHi Randy-
I took your advice (I think it was yours) and joined SmugMug to host my files:
I know that when I view the smugmug version of one of my pix versus the facebook version, there is no comparison. Facebook reduces the contrast and the sharpness for the sake of file size (after all they are hosting 9 quadrillion photos). So it doesn't surprise me that the SmugMug image preserves the superb sharpness of your photo. It also doesn't surprise me that Microsoft would come up with a great algorithm for resizing pictures as well (they hire the top 100 mathematicians every year the way the NFL drafts rookies)...
As to showing off 400VR shots, I agree with Glenn, that either I should be able to block these threads or you should have your own site with a warning: "Do you make $300K per year? If not, please do not enter this site!"
thx John:smile:BOTH are outstanding for two gray-haired guys, re: the Subject and the Photog!
thanksthat's a really nice shot. that lens sure can keep up with action.
thanks WillGreat action shot! I like the look on his face.
thanks...yea I tried that when I thought he was kidding but shuda just ignored himFor what it is worth I think it is a great shot. (tip,to ignore infuriates)

I just bought Michael's 400 2.8 AF-S version 1, I can't wait to return from Europe to try it out 2 more weeks!!! :biggrin:
thx TonyFor what its worht i think the first one grabs me better than the second and i hav eno idea why, it just does.
They are stunning shots and i might need a 400VR too if only i could make it do magic tricks like you do.
thx DaveI have to admit I'm not too keen on your shots either Randy, ..........
because they are better than mine.:wink:
Must admit though, maybe it's my failing eyesight, but I can't tell the difference between the two shots.
