    I've got a few coming that I took last weekend at the same location as this one below, just haven't had a chance to convert all my files yet since I've been shooting mostly RAW as of late, plus working on converting my photos over to my new gallery
    which can be viewed HERE

    You just can't beat Paul's Alaska Peak reflection photo as the epitomal scenic shot. The one element that sets it apart is the perfectly positioned small conifer in the foreground. I'm assuming that was intentional!

    Wish I was up there with you guys instead of down here in the sweltering Georgia heat wave.

    I learned a few years ago that with mountain shots, the foreground is everything. If you get the foreground right, the mountain can take care of itself. A few feet difference doesn't mean much to the mountain, miles away. But a few feet in the foreground can make a huge difference.

    How are you liking the 18-200 VR?

    I just upgraded from my D70 to the D300 (wow...), and picked up the 18-200 VR lens at the same time. Honestly, it's not the best lens I've ever used, but it is certainly light and versatile. VR is useful, but I sometimes wish I could open the aperture just a little more for greater depth of field, and it does creep when straight up or down (not an issue if I simply hold the lens, but may be a problem if using a tripod and/or shooting remotely).

    Do you have any useful tips?

    Thanks.
    I joined the MOA on the recommendation from a couple new friends I made while at the Mountaineer Cass Rally. I had no idea IÔÇÖd find the other side of my riding here as well.

    Here's a "reflection" shot that I was working on. More of a rough-draft than anything: the lighting is poor, they are too close to the corner of the wall, their earrings don't match, etc... I would like to pursue this further as it could make a nice addition to our framed family photos.
