    Been a while since my last post. Spending time learning Photoshop CS5, specifically detailed portrait retouching. The photos here continue to be awesome guys and girls.
    @ Dredden85, I wish you the best, hope you recover those files. I dread that feeling.
    @ pippigurl, that image is absolutely stunning. You nailed it!

    Went to an art festival yesterday and the biggest complaint from all the photographers trying to sell their photos was: "everyone's full of compliments, but nobody's buying." Here's a 4 piece band that was playing during the festival.
    D800, Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G @ f/8 ; 1/125 ; ISO 100 EV+0.5
    The band was under a canopy and dark so I metered for the wall in the background and popped them with an SB-900. Once again, I was asked twice if I was shooting for local newspapers or other media. Funny!
    D800 | D7000 | Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 | 24-70mm f/2.8 | 70-200mm f/2.8 | 35mm f/1.8G | 85mm f/1.4G | Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art | Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art | Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM | Zeiss 100mm Makro-Planar ZF.2 | Flash controllers: Phottix Odin TTL

    @Rx4- Thanks! Good news! I was able to recover the drive by manually evoking the "check disk" feature in the command prompt. Nikon's site did not "let go" of the drive when the site timed out (very annoying) and still had a process running in the background accessing the drive. When I dismounted it, the service crashed corrupting part of the directory it was accessing. Luckily my data is safe. #:-S

    I have been away from posting for a while because (1) not much to post; and (2) involved in family matters. On the way back from So. California last week, stopped by Death Valley for fun, friendship and photography. So will post, beginning with this seven image (vertical) panorama of hills in 20 Mule Team Canyon:

    @Dredden........Oh NO; that's terrible; I sure hope you can save it. Boy, you can never have your file in too many places.
    I'm amazed that a seven foot fence would keep a determined cheetah in; Cheetahs are very "unique" among the felines; I've read a lot about them, but it's been awhile; if I'm not mistaken, I think they are the only member of the felines that lack retractile claws; not very good climbers. Lions on the other hand, considering their massive weight, are very good climbers; ( I hope that 12 ft fence has an inward turn near the top)

    Nice pano Yeti!


    Went out on the weekend to try my 70-200 / TC 17 combination, because much like Golf mentioned in another threat, I am considering the 300 F 2.8. In good light the combination works fine.

    @Kanuck: Spectacular. Individual throwing cast net really sets this shot.
