    Hi all,

    All of the comments were too kind. Thank you so much.

    Your photos are excellent.

    I'm trying to use my micro lenses more this week. Working with groups of small things as subjects.

    Finally get some downtime and then I find we're in another month already :P

    Finally picked up an AF-S 80-200mm f/2.8, lusted after it for years and finally found a deal on one. So so so happy.

    You and me and forget the world
    Don't try, don't know, so I keep trying.

    Shot from a botanical garden. Scene was used in Jurassic Park (find the eggs scene) and pirates of the Caribbean ( mermaid scene)

    Great shots all. I think I can admit I have gotten more out of the Tamron 200-500 than is humanly possible. I have always felt it was just a little flat and I spent a lot of time processing. Being the poor guy that I am I have wanted a prime for awhile. I had the opportunity to jump on a Bargain grade 300 F4 (non-afs) for really cheap from KEH. It came in today but I had almost no time to test it. Headed to the beach to find a seagull. This is wide open with a Tamron 1.4x TC. I had very little light, but I was very impressed with my first few shots...

    Great street scene, ZSChow. You really seemed to capture a genuine moment with the young woman leaning back on her heels and looking at her companion with a smile. :]

    these are darn fast birds and they really taxed the AF system on the D90, time for a D400 i think

    A desert adventure to Oman from my archives collection. I was going through some old travel files and found this previously undeveloped shot: Sultanate of Oman

    Msmoto: Cowboy at Coffee House. Really great portrait. I would say it is one of the "fine art" photos occasionally found in PAD. The colors are terrific for the subject, the background is very nicely faded out by the darker colors, both eyes are sharp, shows abundant character with the hat, vest and beard, amazingly the hat brim does not shade the face too much as is a problem outdoors, and the kicker is the earring! Cowboys see themselves as macho. They don't usually wear earrings. At first you see this grizzled guy and then you notice the earring and wonder why he chose to wear it. What does it say about him? What message is he trying to convey to others? This is exactly the type of fine art image which captures your attention and then holds even more interest as you examine it closely: an ordinary subject from everyday life with one extraordinary element photographed in an extraordinary way. Dare I say portrait perfection? Well done.

    Durbar Square, Kathmandu
    D5100, Sigma 30mm @ f/1.4, 1/2000 sec, ISO 100

    This is one of my early shots and it's not sharp at all, I didn't really know what "stopping down" meant at that time - and I am still in the process of learning how to use that lens, today. But I keep on coming back to this image. I pledge to post technically more sound photography in the future.

    @kanuck: Beautiful capture from Oman, I am glad you developed it after all.

    Msmoto, very nice capture of the cowboy. And to the others, just really, really nice images.
