That's one great capture you got there, redsea. It just comes to show the capabilities of the D70. Was this shot takenhandheld? See, with 12x zoom cameras is not too difficult to obtain sharp images taken handheld at 432mm because not only those cameras have IS but they are also light, which helps with the stability. But the D70 does not have IS and a 300 zoom lens is heavy!

Ditto, with Tullio's comments. Superb.

Small picky point, pls try to restrict images to 800 pixels on the longest side as a nod to those still using telephone modems.

thanks for your comments and info about photo size. I shot this picture hand held because there were dozens of kite surfers, windsurfers, boats pulling sleds and people constantly moving. | had to move about to isolate individual surfers and used a fast shutter speed. I tried to photograph the action from a boat but the boat rocked too much in the strong wind and waves to steady the camera even with a tripod.

Ditto to all that has been said. Looks like you need some strong muscles to handle the kite.
