    my VR came today and I gave it a spin at my sons ballgame (he was pitching). All I can say is WOW!! These still aren't the best but man o man.

    Cropped and white/black/gray balance set, no sharpening.

    Which VR, they make 4!

    Good 1st outing, but those skin tones need some work on them. I think your selection of Grey point might've been off. Oh, btw, what camera too?

    D70 was used. Thanks for your input, so tell me more, do you think they area bit on the yellow side? I used his pants to set the gray point, maybe that was a mistake??

    Anyway what a nice lens.... :D 
  4. Try doing a sample of the white stripes on his shoe in the first photo. That might be better.

    VR....which one?

    Sorry the 70-200 :p 

    I'll give that a shot. I think I used the white part of the building behind him or the whitest part of the baseball to set the white balance; I just can't remember which though.
  6. The baseball and the building are probably dirty white and that could account for the wrong skin tones.
