    Jason: IMHO, too much. I think it removes too much detail that the photo needs. Without it the sky overpowers the city. And, I should know because I frequently do too much (Again IMHO).

    Jason -same here, too much. In fact i loved the original, and don't really care for this version. But of course, YMMV -maybe a matter of taste, and application

    Impressive, Matt. Especially the way you caught her eye in the second shot.

    I agree with you, Alex. And your entire series from Spain is simply amazing.

He went in back and came out with it! Said, I could have the lens because i was on the "list". Only one that they've ever seen. Very good timing. Now, there's at least two of us in the country that have one (some guy in Boston?). Cheers, Matt.
    Well, you're both doing great work with those new lenses, Matt. Obviously a great investment... and you can always get more bags! (i know I do!) (Oh, and nice shots of the cruise ships too! And the Fremont parade... LOVE IT!!)

    Lloyd: Thank you! Yes bags are easy to get. I'm now trying to figure out if the new 200-400mm would be worth it? I think it's probably the best all around big zoom lens. I can trade mine in, and with some credits for some other stuff recently sold, get one for about $1k additional. Almost a swap (my wife would disagree)! With it, the 300mm f/2.8 and the TC-E20III, I'm probably covered for creatures large and small. I'm not optimistic about a new 700x, anytime soon.

    Cheers, Matt

    I've wondered myself. I used mine (the old version) quite a bit this past weekend, and was once again reminded what a stellar performer really is. I've read what Moose Peterson says about the new one, and it's all good, but it really seems the improvements are incremental. Still, I think if I could get one for very little out-of-pocket, I'd probably go for it.

    Thanks Corlan. I'm fine. I've just been on the road for the past week, and had very sporatic Internet access. I didn't do a lot of shooting that I'll be sharing here, but maybe a few things... once I get some time to sort them out a little. I will say this, it's nice to be back... and great to see all the good stuff happening here on the Nikon thread!

    Glad to know you and your family are fine.
    Sure enough, there are some gems in those "few things".

    Matt, looking at your first photo above, first instant thought was "American Beauty". That said, very subtle colors, and a poetic image.

    Lloyd: I'll have to read Moose's take. I needed very little encouragement; and, you probably provided it! I'm momentarily out of stuff to sell. I'll have to cough up a little. I'm going for it tomorrow.

    I meant the Sam Mendes (well, in fact more the late, great Conrad Hall) thang.

    Well, if it helps you feel even better, I just this morning read what Michael Weber, one of my favorite sports photographers (he's German) said about the new one, and it's ALL good.

    I liked the color of this plane against the sky and clouds. Cheers, Matt

    Matt, the green plane works well with the white blue & gray. Nice job with the 70-300vr!

    One for Lloyd's wife...

    Joan Benoit Samuelson is in town to run in a local club race on Sat. Last evening she did a "fun run" with some of the boyz. Amazing runner, first Female Olympic Marathon Gold, American Marathon record 2:21:21 in 1985 that held for 18 years, set Am Record for age 50+ Marathon time...

    And a spectator... a new "Joanie" perhaps

    Hey!! Very kewl. My wife is a fan for sure. We spent some time with Joanie in Boston in April when she visited the Elite Athlete Village. Very nice person, and an amazing athlete for sure. (My wife says, "Thank you!" And, "great shots!")

    As for the the new "Joanie", beautiful image, great light, and a stunning child.

    Corlan: I'm with you! The strongly silhouetted ground, red blur in the foreground, sun flaring and the dark edges at the horizon line make for a very perfect imperfect picture. Nice capture.

    That's a gorgeous image, Corlan. I'm just the opposite, however... very much a morning person. I'm a total lightweight, and don't do late nights well anymore.

    The portrait is adorable

    (one surprising thing about the first photo: reminded me instantly of shots taken by... Lloyd, with about the same equipment)

    Thanks Matt, Lloyd. Looks a lot like my brain perceived it after driving through the night and arriving at 5 A.M., 3 hours early for a meeting. Wanted to avoid the (insane) rush hour trafic in betwen the two destinations... hmm.

    Nice addition to your previous, still ongoing series. Everytihing seems ready for the 4th over there.

    Sounds like you'll end up with several "Public Market" books material: "Around the Market" "Inside the Market" "Everyday life at the Market" "Music at the Market" "People and characters" and so on. Seriously

    On this specific set -all nice, i like the accordion shot a lot, and the dynamic expressions on the next. What were they singing this time? Not Comfortably Numb, probably

    edit: oh i missed the green plane. Nice catch... is it one from Steve's private fleet?
