    Nikon D3 plays in Aswan, Egypt

    hi guys, i'm new here from melb, aust.- please be nice -

    just found this forum.

    Just got back from spending a month wondering around Egypt.. one thing though, the Nikon D3 and kit gets really heavy after a while.. wish the d700 was out before i left, i would of grabbed one.. anyhow im happy to report that the D3 can really handle the heat with no problems, like 48deg in the middle of the desert - the top of the viewfinder was so hot it hurt to touch it.. true!

    want a sample? okays..

    The hills on the west bank of the Nile, north of Kitchener’s island, are pock-marked with rock-hewn Tombs of the Nobles.

    The ancient necropolis is lit up by spotlights at night and looks particularly magical when viewed from across the river in Aswan.

    thanks, Tony.

    I like the atmosphere. But for me it's too unclear what it's the photo of, for any of what you're describing to come across. If that was your intention.

    I know there is a balance between cutting off the reflections and showing the main part of the image bigger and it might look different if I saw it larger and the buildings become a bigger part of it. I do very much like the fact that you were able to get the detail of the boats without blowing out the other lighting.
