Fantastic pictures in this thread! I am also an aspiring wannabe, but the multitude of options is a bit overwhelming. Maybe a photography rally is in order...

Hey Rodney, that didn't take long! You must have your nose buried in the manual - the D300 has a gazillion more settings than a D50. So what do you think?

MAN OH MAN! Two thumbs up! . First, being able to control the f/stop and shutter speed with the rapid dials is great; second the difference in frames per second rocks!; third the upper ISO ability is really nice. Also, the control over picking your focus point is something else as well.

If the eagles have made it to the river by st Louis, I will probably go over for a couple days on the way home for Christmas. I love this thing

Great idea, I tried to get one off the ground last year but it fizzled. I have a standing offer to meet anyone in whatever area I am in at the time to go shooting. Maybe you would have better luck organizing a rally than I did.

Well, let's see what we can cook up. We'd have to find out who was interested in coming, and choose a centralized location with lots of photo opportunities. Maybe I'll start a thread and see if we can get something organized for '08.

Picture.

I only use an Olympus E-20 but I think it works very well for what I do.I am not a die hard photographer but I do love to take pictures when I can.Here is when I took one of this guy at Animal Kingdom this past week.He just kept this pose while everyone was snapping photos.The picture does no justice though because this Boy was really huge.
I would like to study up a bit more on photography though and eventually be able to take pics such as the closeup of the bird in the posts above.

Yes, thats a pretty sweet camera. I'd sure like to have the extra 1-2 noise reduction stops of the D300. The D300's settings are very similar to the D200, so you might find this summary handy...

Discussion Forums @ Nikonians - D200 Custom Settings Spreadsheet version 1.5

Enjoy!

Ok, I'm not commenting on the skill of models here, but how closely does THAT pose resemble exaclty the pose one would see in many of the fashion pictures?

Buff

Here is an example of one that was Photoshoped some. It was cropped for effect (got rid of some foreground) and darkened for the silhouette, and made warmer for the sky. Other than that, thats exactly how it looked

Thanks for sharing your photos. I too am aspiring to own a DSLR but can't quite justify it yet. I have an olympus 10X zoom point and shoot (C750UZ). It is okay. I am sure I could do much more with it if I would only read the manual.

This morning at the refuge

Yet again, as I was driving through the wildlife refuge this morning, I was struck by the golden color of the tall grass and how majestic the buffalo are. Here is this mornings offering to those who had to be somewhere else
