    Wow, that was... uh...


    Oversharpened, too much DOF, horrible framing, lousy timing. A
    10-year-old with a $99 P&S could have done better.

    Just a lucky guess, really. I'd confirm with the EXIF info, but it's
    been conveniently removed. What a shock.

    I love how all her pictures are "best viewed full size to be awed by the
    D3's magical properties," yet full size is almost invariably less than
    one megapixel (1024x768 in this case). That's pretty magical, alright.

    I went to the url, looked and read: "Careless duck falls over the edge and
    tries to hold on for dear life Taken with the world famous Nikon D3 and
    500/4 Nikkor. Damn! That 500/4 Nikkor is one sweet lens! Best viewed full
    size to be awed by the D3's magical properties".

    Darn it Rita, you prove eactly what I'm always thinking: No use throwing
    money at hardware if you don't get the results. Here you are, spending over
    $10,000 in equipment to get that result? Surely you jest ;-))))) Telle us,
    please, it's a P&S, right?????

    You make me think of those I knew, who used to buy a turntable worth $6000
    and over to gain a very suspect purer sound....

    It takes all kinds, I guess.

    Take care,

  12. Now you hurt my feelings! I'm going to have to trade the old D3 in on a 1Ds
    Mk III.
    At least it sounds good, even at 9fps. This was my fault. I would have had
    the money shot if I set the old D3 to fire at 11fps.
    It is all about the journey, you gots to know how to have fun.

  14. Hey, why not? You can't take it with you. I'm in my 40s and I got a bit of
    a surplus to burn off in the next 30-years or so. Maybe they need to raise
    the prices of dSLRs?

    Please "focus" on what I said.
    I'm not jealous, nor a troll, but I find extravagant to have this type of
    gear to take this resulting photo.
    I bet my bottom $ that she/he would have done as well with a simple outfit,
    say a Canon D20 or Nikon D 70 (note, older models), both with a good lens,
    not necessarily a higly pro one. That was in essence what I said.
    Why all this ballyhoo over such a photo?

    You mean except for catching exactly the right moment, perfect colors,
    perfect focus and supersharp image?
    Absolutely nothing ;-)

  20. Nice shot. Too bad there isn't a little more frantic wing flapping shown --
    was this a single shot, or the best of a rapid fire series?

    Ducks do funny things, but seem to have no sense of humor themselves. On the
    other hand I guess I don't know how a duck would express a sense of humor if
    he had one.
