Nikon: How do I love thee…let me count the ways

I’ve been shooting with Nikons since my first Nikkormat which I bought sometime in the early 70s. Now I’m shooting with a new D300 and yes I am impressed.

Here’s a shot of Marion at a pub which we visited with Michael Willems and his lovely wife Nancy on Sunday last after the art show. I was using my new 17-55 f2.8 lens and I just fired off a couple of quick frames.

Thanks to Nikon’s NX Capture 2 which arrived by courier yesterday I blacked out the distracting background, sharpened the image a little, darkened it a bit and as far as I’m concerned it’s one of my most successful images so far with the D300.

Is there a D700 in my future. What do you think 🙂 ?
