Nice, I am leaning toward all wide angle and landscape / portrait type lens and photography. The big tele's and trying to capture wildlife is a tough game.

Although I'm glad I have these, so I don't know whether to sell the Tamron or not......

AJ,

As soon as you start talking Photo Shop you have left me sphere of understanding. I would like to take a class and own the software someday. All I have is the Nikon Picture Project software that came with my camera.

Well, I don't know the hardware end so well, but I can help from time to time with the software end. Maybe we can meet somewhere in between, haha. Adobe Photoshop Elements is rather like photoshop lite, so its a decent way to get in on the ground floor. And an amazing photo of the eagle, by the way!

One tip from me . If your camera have the option to shot raw-images, use raw format for landscape pictures. Much more info in the file format and more possibilities for adjustments later.

Another fine ultra wide angle lens for Nikon is the Tokina 11-16 2.8. Great fast lens for the money. When using a wide angle lens, remember that space is expanded. When you are looking at a scene, with say mountains in the distance, the mountains will appear farther away than what your eye sees. Use something in the foreground and focus on it to draw your eye into the the main portion of the image and add depth to the scene.

Ard,
Regarding the Moon Over Homestake Peak B/W shot on the other thread.
This was shot with a 300mm Sigma and a Sigma 2X tele converter. The aperture was was wide open at probably f8 (don't know for sure because of the addition of the 2X). Shutter speed was 1/15 second. Adding the 2X contributed to the somewhat fuzziness in the moon. You really need high end lenses (Canon/Nikon etc.) when using a tele converter to get a truly tack sharp shot. The lens was mounted on a tripod and exposed using Mirror Lock up and a remote trigger.
Best time to shoot the setting moon is the day after the true full moon and the day before for the rising moon. This will give you some extra ambient light on the surrounding objects in your shot as it will be closer to the sun rise/set. Of course if you are just shooting the moon itself, the true full moon is best. I expose for the moon itself metering with spot meter setting right on the moon. Bracketing also helps if you are still shooting film, which this shot was done on.
Here's a handy little free download that can help you plan your moon rise/set photography.

Thanks Bob,

i will visit the link and I'm sure it will be helpful. I have had less than stellar results with moon shots but then I have not taken time to plan them and that is why I ask how you did that. The picture I'm pasting was taken resting the camera on the console of the boat and the brightness of the moon sort of overpowered the whole thing...........
