New pictures at the bottom of the page. Some needed some work while others didn't, and I was taking plenty of liberties with exposure compensation, etc.

On the flash thing...I took the camera to a bar tonight and I seemed to have better luck taking flash pictures at a greater distance than I did at a shorter distance the other night. I also experimented with the rear and front shutter settings...I'm not 100% sure I understand what these do but I came up with some pretty neat stuff. I'm about to run a couple of tests with umbrellas and slave flashes, since I'm taking our soccer team's picture in about 8 hours.

Note to self: Next time you want to take pictures at the airport, wait for a warmer day that your fingers won't freeze waiting for an airplane to come along!

Oh -- I got a Nikkor (made in China model) 70-300 zoom. :GThat thing is light, compared to my 28-105!

At any rate, enjoy the pictures. (I was too lazy to remove the dust spots when I was going through them -- it's been long day!):|

Rear Curtain
or Regular (front curtain)
Is the timing when the flash fires, Rear being at the end of the exposure, Front being as soon as the shtter opens

For example if you want car lights trailing a moving car you need to flash at the end of the exposure to light up the car, where if you fired the flash right away the tail lights would appear to move into the car...

One thing I noticed was that when using front or rear curtain, the camera didn't set itself to a standard flash speed of 1/60, it looked like it metered the scene without the flash, as if the flash weren't even in the equation; is this correct?

Thanks for the info.
