Now you got me going, Torgny!

IMO (but I am just a humble soul) the whole professional sports-scene and most of all, the Olympic Games - - is a money-making (nothing wrong with that. With me - It's not political, but emotional) SuperEscalated Happening where nations compete with their spoiled brats = "super-babies" (athletes) so obsessed with their own navels, that they dont see what the rest of the world is coming to....

Really, there are thousands of people either dying or buried alive because of the earthquake in Chile, and the Norwegian Broadcasting 30minutes-News tonight had about 3 minutes report on it, and 27 minutes of sporting events from the Olympic Games - including some hard guessing of which nations will pick the rest of the gold medals....

This is what I call: Priorities - and that puts things in perspective for me...

It is tough to realize that human compassion has to make way for simple entertainment! Really, our civilisation has not made that much progress since the roman-times, where "bread and circus to the people" was the yard-stick for Roman politics.

I'll keept that in mind, Simon, and hold on to it with an extra neckstrap! AAMOF, I am wondering to change to a D90 in the forseable future. Just want to wait and see if Nikon will be release a replacement for the D90 soon? After such a new relase, the D90 will come down in price.

Thanks for commenting, Simon!

Thank you, Bob - blue is a wonderful color. I can never get enough of it, that's why I like night- / early morning- / evening-shots so much!

Thank you for your nice comment, Markus. The scenery has a lot to do with the outcome.
