    David,

    I think the PP treatment of your glam shot is wonderful... great softness... I'll bet it would be a great bw conversion.

    Thank you Helen!

    Just took a few minutes to review a few of the files, and found another shot of the belly dancer, this one balancing a sword on her head. It stayed amazingly still as she spun her hands, hips and belly

    This one was 1/4 second exposure, again hand-held:

    This is also from that same session with a D3 and an old 50mm lens.
    I am still learning all of the ways to screw up my settings with this new camera to me.

    I think he must have been wobbling in exact sync with her belly

    Anyway everybody - I've really enjoyed your trip, vicariously I'm afraid, but it looked a whole lot of fun. My only question is that evening on the balcony - 3 bottles of wine between you lot?

    Just this guy you know

    Easy answer...that picture was taken not long after we arrived and given the temperature the wine was kept cold until needed. Think of the wine as the aperitif before the evening mojitos.

    I made it out of bed early enough this morning to shoot the sunrise. This was with the 28mm shift, shifted to get the foreground in.

    Those were the dead soldiers, we had three more on ice outside the frame. And as Terry said, this was pre-dinner

    No it was the Rum Reception. Damn we sound like a bunch of drunks. Seriously we all worked very hard all week. Very early to rise and late to bed every night.

    I guess by removing the scaffolding I may be scoring a bit low on the journalistic accuracy scale bit it looked pretty miserable without the cosmetic touch up.

    Now that you've lowered the bar on integrity I feel better about doing the same thing It really is what the image should look like. In a sense, truer than true.

    Hey Bob,

    #1 has my vote... the eye just travels up the water course and the green leaves glisten with moisture... just wonderful.

    Are you thinking of an NYC trip this summer?
