    Great choice to include the people in the second one, well done.

    Interesting how close the colors are to the ones I took with my D100. Just goes to show how close the camera re in lineage.

    How to tell the most experienced shooter in a group? They have the least amount of toys on them.

    I knew I wanted some foreground interest, on the print they are more visible. Trouble was everything was happening so fast, I forgot to pay more attention. These two were thet best.

    Thanks for your response, I'm glad I got the D70, thanks for your advice before hand. By the way what's your take on the back focus hysteria on some other sites?

    Regards
    Happy to Photograph

    My view on crying children is, let them cry. THey'll shut up eventually...

    If you have no issues with yours, then you have no issues. I don't get the whole backfocus thing. It reached hysteria levels with the 10D, the D100 before it, and now the D70. I guess they got bored bitching about Moire, eh?

    Nice work - I'm looking forward to Sunday to shoot fireworks digitally. That's a first for me, but I'm also going to shoot some film for comparison. These results look great, colors are very strong.

    Funny thing about the hysteria about focus problems. Reading about the Fuji S2 (which I've had for almost a year), some people say the autofocus is horrible but if you learn how it works it's not bad. Paying more attention to how I shoot made my keeper rate go up - even shooting concerts at ISO800 with apertures faster than 2.8 (as in very low light levels). Let them complain, go shooting!
