    Hi y'all,

    If you haven't heard yet I had the pleasure of shooting with Mike and Harris on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Alligator Farm. I had a super time even though my D2X decided to die. :Bohoo:

    here's a few pics I took up trying to keep up with the two pros.

    The 70-200mm 2.8 continues to amaze me. Here's a 100% crop from the above shot

    Looks like you kept up pretty well for an OLD guy (note that Harry and I are the same age :biggrin:) .

    Excellent set Harry.

    Great shots Harry. That 100% crop is incredible.
    Sorry about the D2X. What happened? Did it jump off the tripod and go for a swim?
     
  18. Excellent as usual Harry. That eye is amazing.
     
  19. Thanks for the great time Harry!

    The shots are great, let me know if you need another lesson...:cool: , I'll come up again.

    Thanks Chris. I started to get a flashing ERR message in my LCD. I changed the lens, battery, CF card, did a menu rest and the button reset w/o remedying the situation. The D2X will arrive in Melville on Monday and hopefully I should have it back within two weeks.
