Did you do much post on this one? I'm beginning to lust after a D700 more and more.

It's a beautiful picture, you should send a copy to the charity that looks after the Potomac, we might get a free cruise out of it. ;)

But gary, this was taken with the lousy K100d!!. I barely had to do any PP. Most of the PP I did was to remove the junk floating in the water.

Well, I stand corrected, I keep forgetting what a good camera the K100 is.

Still, if you want to play with the D700 you know you can use next time we meet ;)

Maybe I'll ask for a play with it when I'm ready to switch up, it might be dangerous to do it before.

Here's the link - [url:3senjjxu]www.usspotomac.org/[/url]

They do cruises around the bay on her, maybe we should think about doing one sometime.

I was ready to rush out and get the D700 too... Just goes to show it aint the gear, it is the gomer behind the gear...

This is just amazing coming from your old K100d. (The best camera ever) Instead of borrowing you gear from now on when we go on shoots, I just want lessons...

Tripod/Small aperture/Long exposure??????

Dont get me wrong, the gear matters. You know that I am pretty gearholic, but nothing can trump my love for my little K100.

The aperture was f8 and the exposure 3s. I used as a tripod the wooden fence in the pier and I think that set the mode to delay.

Later in the day I will post a picture in which the tripod was my car while my GF was sleeping (and moving) on it. Ladies and gentleman, for FPZ aficionados only, allow me to introduce you... Mr McGrubber!!! or Tripubber!!!

That's a great shot. Great color and sharpness. The K100 is indeed a good camera for night shots.

Very pretty. Makes me think that the rendezvous involved gunplay, nightvision scopes and helicopters though. :)

I think my new maxim about gear may be, "The gear matters, but not why you think."

Thanks a lot Frank and Leighgion.

Leighion you are not disoriented, the rendezvous was a secret mission of the Meet up Guerrillas.
