Super stuff, Steve, that 4th shot is exceptional especially in the area of exposure on the bird. Rarely have I seen such a well exposed shot of this difficult bird, I believe the light may have helped, excellent.

Steve, your "Egret Lifting Off" is simply spectacular! Rarely do I see BIF shots that show a simultaneousalmost- 90 degree-fold of the outer halfof both wings at the same time! It really conveys a sense of lift. Great capture and exposure. Dan

Hey, great shootin' Steve! That new camera is working beautifully. Are you shooting RAW or jpg? Can't see your exif data...I guess smugmug removes it?.....cheers...Don

Thanks Don, I have my camera set to shoot RAW + Jpg Fine right now. Until Apple updates the cameras that iPhoto and Aperture use I can't process in RAW because the programs don't recognize the file format.
However, after seeing what this camera can do with Jpg files I'm not sure I can see the need for RAW. As long as your settings are correct and you don't totally blow the WB or exposure I think I will save the Hard Drive space and shoot Jpg's.

Don or anybody else, If you want to see the exif info for my D300 shots you can find it here. Choose a gallery, then run your mouse over the picture and click on the info ( i ) button.

Happy shooting in '08 Don,
