    I came so close to breaking my 70-200 yesterday! :x: When i moved up to a railing, a bird flew past, startled me, and I smacked the edge of the lens into a rail, making me cringe. Luckily the hood absorbed the impact, and I walked away with only a scratched hood. It was worth it w/ some of the shots I got. C&C more then welcome.

    I would like to know your post-processing without you giving away any secrets. I know PP is very unique to everyone.

    They have a unique look to them. They're kinda unnatural, but I still like them a lot. And I think you did a good job with the crummy lighting you were given (I'm seeing lots of sun blotches... yuck).

    One should try to disguise Zoo Shots, so they don't look obviously shot in a zoo.

    That is pretty much SOOC, nothing really much done to them, except maybe a little sharpening.

    People who are not familiar with the character that a D700 has, are often impressed with the results.

    Given Alex's comment recently that his D700 is in the shop, I'm going to wager that the look of these shots is not "unique to the D700."
