    Kathy, In the early mornings I love to take my camera in my kayak. I knew where these frogs were and the light was favorable. I took this with my 80-400 mm Nikon zoom at 400 mm f 5.6. It was a lucky catch as this is the old version of the 80-400 lens. Great glass, lousy AF. Thanks for the nice comment!!! Dick

  5. Pierre, Thank you!!! Kathy, The 18-200 on my D300 has served me well as an all around lens when I have to choose one to carry with me easily, but it has it's drawbacks, especially at the longer end. I love my 105 macro, which is also excellent for portrait shots. I have no experience with the 40mm macro and I guess it depends on what you are interested in shooting. I have a 30mm Sigma f1.4 that is excellent as a "standard" lens on the DX body. Browse the discussions in the Nikon forum about your possible choices and you'll get a lot of good information. Dick
  6. Leslie and Mike, This was truly a "picture perfect" spot. The view of the falls lends itself to a natural composition. As far as the water "flowing", I have experimented over the years with how to get this effect and I had to do this with no tripod, but I found a railing to rest the camera on for the slow shutter speed. Mike, the Big Island is an incredible place for photography. You should go! Dick
