    Went to the dentist and this is what I saw on the way back:

    Just wish I had money for a bigger zoom...

    I saw a lot more, but my wife and daughter were hungry and wanted to go home
    :-(
    You can see where they were taken if you click on SEE MAP.
    Almost scary how accurate it is. It even point at the exact right side of
    the road!

    Enjoy and leave some feedback please.

    With a Canon it would be just one big white spot...

    Let me see: sharp pictures.
    Dynamic Range Optimizer, like Nikon from Apical Ltd.
    Excellent light metering.
    Oh and no Instant Green Haze like Canon.
    And of course: real AWB...

    No back or front focus problem.
    Horizon is the same as in Liveview, not a few degrees off (1DsMIII)

    That Sony makes sensors for Nikon is already known, right?

    Think, before you open up a can of worms.
    And choose your "friends" more wisely.


    But if your happy with your Pray station (Please, let it work this time), by
    all means.

    You invited people to "Enjoy and leave some feedback please".

    If you don't like the feedback, then don't ask.

    By the way, almost anyone could take a picture like that one.

    You did notice, that I did not add any nasty comment.

    You can say that about just any picture, can't you?
    Same goes for all of Ansel Adams and Henry Cartier-Bresson pictures: anyone
    could make them...
    Roy, you're right.
    Asking for a comment on pictures *here* is asking for trouble.

    From now on I'll join the rest of the group and just add fast and smart
    remarks to other people's posts.
    The pictures I'll save for photography forums where they do seem to like to
    look at pictures without trying to out smart each other with technical bs.

    I know Adams wasn't the first to photograph the Jeffery Pine atop
    Sentinel Dome, and I wouldn't be surprised if someone photographed the
    stand of trees in Brie before Cartier-Bresson in 1968. There's no
    doubt many people have duplicated those iconic images, and many more
    have tried and failed.

    The question for me is whether anyone *could* take a shot, but how
    many people would or could duplicate it. Who here hasn't taken the
    obligatory postcard snap?

    So I ask you ... how many people will intentionally attempt to
    duplicate "Next to the highway I saw these flamingos" or "Six white
    storks in one shot. Never before seen so many in my life.."?

    To be honest: I really couldn't care less.
    Maybe I'm strange, but I don't feel the need for copying anyone's photos, no
    matter what the name is, no matter how pretty the picture.
    That's why I really don't care for those Death Valley pictures: it's been
    done a million or more times.

    Thanks, Dimitrios!
    I'll see if I can find that music too.

    Above is the intended link.

    OK, not bad, but I think I would prefer something like Tchaikovsky's
    Swanlake ;-)
