Getting ready to charge

By editfmah
On sunday I borrowed a NIkon D3 body to have a go, due to it being so very dull and getting duller all the time. Although the results are far from perfect, they were 100% better than I could have ever expected from my trusty D200. I think this one was ISO3200 which shows how great that body is, and a trusty Sigma 70-210mm lens from a film camera which just blows me away every time I use it, always sharp (for the conditions) but very slow mechanical focus is often foxed by a moving subject so sometimes you miss the exact focal point you were after. But if you do get it right the results are good.

The difference between these bodies was staggering though!

Stunning eye contact - I think I would be tempted to crop this so just the face in in the frame! Smile

Eyecatching, no pun intended, grabs the attention.
