First Photos With The D300

I decided to get right out the next day and shoot with my new camera. I went out to Old Faithful - Bolsa Chica. My challenge was that it was very cloudy and raining. When I got there it was pretty dark and gloomy, but I was determined. I shot a bunch of photos while goofing around and playing with the settings.

Here is my result. The only thing I did to this was crop it. No adjusting ANY settings. No Levels, No Curves and now Shadow/Highlight and absolutely NO sharpening. The best part? The best part is that I shot it at ISO 1600 and it looks great. I was more than 50 feet away from this bird and this is the result. I think I am going to like my camera.

Hey Al. Just checking out your site thru the link you left on my blog. Bolsa Chica is a place I like in the winter as well because there are more sanderlings during this season. Sounds like a great camera you've got if the D200 is any indication.

Thanks, Richard. Bolsa Chica is awesome in the winter or summer. It's amazing the different wildlife you see down there. We'll have to hook up sometime for a shoot.
