These are spectacular pictures Ron! Clearly the D700 does well at higher ISO's. The f2.8 lens would be a real contributing factor as well.So the question begs to be asked... Did you shoot these from outside the shark tank or did you get an underwater housing for your camera?
Hmmmm.... LOLNo underwater housing for the D700 Paul. This tank is a 360 degree tank that you can walk through and take pictures from all sides. I was nice and dry (and safe) when taking these photos.I think the 2.8 lens made all the difference in the world on getting these shots.
Well I didn't think so but you've surprised me before! LOL
LOL. Hopefully, with a little luck, I will keep surprising you every now and then. I have to keep you on your toes, don't want you slacking off in your old age! :~)
love that last one! :)
He's smiling at you Tex! LOL
It seems to me that you haven't take this lens off your camera since you bought this one. If you haven't look into wide angle ND filters for this lens, I would recommended to do some reading on B + W filters or LEE. Good shot!
What can I say? It's a very nice lens and it takes great photos!Thanks for the info Q. I will look at those. Right now I'm using the CPL and ND filters I had for my Sigma 10-20mm lens (after market filters but good). The best thing about full frame and the Nikon lenses is that every lens I have now for the D700 uses the same size filters (except the 150-500mm Sigma). It makes it so much easier!
Amazing photos Ron.
