    We took off to the park today, which excited me because I knew I would get a
    chance to use the 70-200VR out in a location that wasn't my house.

    I'll keep posting them up as I get them ready.

    It took me a little bit to figure out why it was like that...

    Those are two oak trees growing away from each other. The vertical lines of the
    tree bark really made it look weird.

    Well, I somehow cannot help liking 4, 11 and 14 for their background colour :wink: ... and I very, very much like the photo of your son and that "funny looking bokeh" that Sw1tchFX is pointing out already. I also like the three male and one female duck swimming towards us. And I really like the portrait of your wife (#7), such a natural, open smile!

    And it is good to see you, too!
    Thanks for #15!

    I checked up on this page again and it looks like more images loaded.

    Out of those 13, 14, and 7 are my favorites out of these.

    7 Is a nice portrait with good seperation from the background and the lean is nice

    13 is just a raw candid

    14 looks like the center bird is being escorted!

    love the details of the water droplets on #2. The colors on all of them are great! And the pics of the family are wonderful.

    How close were you on #2? i.e. how much cropping did you do? I can never get close enough with the 200mm setting on my 70-300 lens.

    Straight out of the camera...no cropping at all. I would guess I was probably
    at about 15 feet or so. Hard to remember.

    I like 4, 7, and 13. Check out the swan's teeth in #4!! Kind of scary. I always thought of them as harmless, but that could hurt pretty badly I bet. Esp. if he got your peter...

    #7 - Your wife is very pretty, and has a smile that doesn't look forced at all. She was either honestly happy, or you've got her trained well. ;)

    13 - Nice double portrait. I like the tight crop.
