However, I would like to differ somewhat with you. I, for one, am always grateful for comments or feedback, no matter how brief. It is kinda like passing a friend on the sidewalk and at least saying "Hello" as you pass by. Just an acknowledgement can be important. It removes any questions about if the photo was actually seen by others, and that it was at least worthy of a comment or criticism. After all, that is one of the functions of any interactive photo forum. There are plenty of picture sites where one can just look at photos, but comments are not solicited. Anyway, as I said, just my 2 cents worth.
I agree with this point of view Steven.

Very nice shots Simon, very clean considering those were shot at ISO 3200.

Thank you for sharing.

Just to keep this thread alive, some from my last trip to Arizona last month:

1. Grand Canyon - Sunset Point




2. Grand Canyon - Navajo Point




3. California Condor - Yes I shoot it with my 24-70mm f2.8 :-)




Have a great day everyone.

Hi Marcelo,

There where already some pictures in this forum from me: Some pictures, Tri-Cycle and Jaguar Phantom.

I do like the D800 very much, on a travel to Germany and Luxembourg this summer I did make +1000 pictures. The links I did give, where from that period. I really like the 50mm 1.8 lens, but also had some nice experience with the Nikon 70-210 AF-D lens.

Hi Pascal,

Shooting the Milky Way is very easy and fun to do, you have too be in a place with out light contamination to be able to capture it.

I shoot this picture at the Grand Canyon and the closest town is 1 mile from this point so I had total darkens in the area.

You have to use a lens with a fast aperture 1.4 - 1.8 - 2.0 or 2.8 at least.

With the camera on tripod set you your camera at ISO 100, set your lens to manual and focus in infinity and ISO between 3600 or 6400.

If you are in an area far from any big city you will be able to see the Milky Way.

Let me k now if you have questions.

Marcelo
