D7000 and highlight/ high contrast control
Upgrading from a camera system that was prone to blowing highlights in high contrast situations, I'm cognizant of trying to control metering and exposure in those situations. It's also one of the factors that caused me to change systems.

These are two rather simple photographs. But, each are a perfect example of how much control the D7000's sensor and processing engine has in those
situations where you high contrast.

This is not a knock on any one camera manufacturer, as it is really difficult for a lot of cameras two be able to capture detail in the shadow areas while not simply blowing out the bright 'sunny' areas.

This is a picture of bridge #28 in Central Park:

This is an image go the Civil War Memorial on Riverside Drive:

Great pictures Zig,

I didn't know it is a Civil War Memorial on 89th St West, Manhattan it is a small pice of land with so many thinks to see and discover.

It is a beautiful building and you did a great job exposing it with your new gear.

Thanks for taking the time to look and comment , Marcelo.

The D7000 manages the various light and shadows areas as is found in these two images quite well. To me, this is the type of situation that is truly difficult for many cameras to properly expose and control.

all I did was press the shutter release.;)
