Steve, it's a pleasure to see your b/w shots.
(as for the romany thing, let's say that media turmoil and political rivalries made it a larger and somehow biased story than it is. There's a number of associated issues, but it's surely not the place to elaborate. It's a long term, complex situation with no easy way around (and i mean even for many of these people's own good)). Harsh times, definitely.
An hour by the Cathedral Square (Inside the Cathedral 1/1)
Saving the last couple of portraits for later, let's rewind a bit and see what's inside.
As said earlier, i had decided to use the kit casually as a P&S: 105mm // ISO100 (yeah, i know ... forgot to change the fixed setting except for two of them, noted below) // f2.8. I sincerely did not expect to get anything, but the first shot looked relatively ok on the LCD so i kept shooting a few. Here they are:
"Vierge et l'Enfant"
second one iso 400

Sun was showing up outside, so... time for a soda break.
Thanks Steve, Lloyd. You're too kind.
It's true that i was positively surprised by the relatively good quality of the outcome considering the basic settings limitations.
Steve: incredible er.... Atomic!
Here are some from the recent F1 in Singapore:
Excellent shooting Hacker!
The happiest bison in the Tetons? A good scratch is a good scratch whoever you are!

Graham...Breath Taking Beauty!!!
Wow Graham, that's a beauty.
And yeah, kudos to Mr. Redford... nice setup
Thanks guys - I was actually shooting a beautiful fall color reflection on the lake when thus guy rowed into shot ruining the mirror like lake. I was definitely for a moment and then figured I can use him to my advantage. There was a film crew shooting advertising footage and so were directing him around for their shots so, what's a man to do? Sun's set, lake is like a mirror and there's a guy in a boat fishing and then rowing back & forth ... Too good to miss.
One of my pix made the CNN new site. (The credited Red Bull. Oh well, they paid me for it.)
i hesitate to post after Graham's marvelous photo. I've been re-working some old high ISO photos. Here's a some of them. Taken North of Prince Rupert, B.C. in the Khutzeymateen Inlet. Cheers, Matt

Price Rupert - remember from when you first posted the series... esp the one with the smoke, the hills... anyway, my fav here is #2
(though it lacks a bit of midtone contrast on my monitor)
Was it the same trip than the bears' ?
Here's the color version of that second one. It's probably a little harsh.
Sorry about the cliche'd shot but it was pretty ... As you can imagine the 10k version is more impressive but still pretty even at this size. I really wish the Teton's had some weather at the moment - bue skies are nice for the tan and tourists but scenic landscape shots need some ... ummph.
