    Please excuse the 'dump' of images. I guess it's just been a long while since I felt like sharing anything at all and these past few days I've been feeling a bit better, so here's some I felt like sharing. The guy in the pics is my dad btw.

    All except the last shot are with the D700 and 35mm F2D, while the last was with the 24-70.

    You're right. It came down to losing contrast vs hot shirts. I wanted the skin tones more than shirt details. It didn't bother me as long as there was no CA or bleeding.

    Can't you use a localised thing to bring the detail back? I know that in NX2 you can (control point). Skin still looks a bit overexposed to me.

    I could later, after editing 980 images from this event, 870 from the one the next day and the 500 from the day after that. :D

    Seriously, If I feature that for anything promotional, I probably will take your advice.

    Admittedly not pictures I've taken recently but considering I've just managed to finally remember my flipping Flickr login I thought I would put up a few from Glastonbury earlier this year.

    Yeah I spent a good while trying to decide on the exposure with the bungee. Somehow it just always looks wrong.

    And the Domo.. Well I really didn't care about the mp3-player. It's there just to show what the thing is about and the shot was taken at 1 AM after we got him ready..

    As I finally got a camera, here's one shot for today. A bear outside of my post office :)

    And a local memorial for glorious dead.

    Performer at the Santa Monica pier. I suck at people photography, so I'm trying to do more of it.
