Woo Hoo! Still trying to get used to the Nikon so I went out to take some test shots at the Lock, and since I drove rather than my usual bike ride, I was able to stay late and watch the entire sunset.

Thank you!

Yahoo! As I said in our team thread, I wish I could take shots like yours anytime, much less when "practicing" with a new camera. :) Congrats!

Neil, I guess the radar dome wasn't too distracting! Congrats on yet another fantastic image and another ribbon. Can't wait to see more shots with your new camera.

Woo hoo, Neil! Looks like that new Nikon is working out rather well for you :-) Somehow I think it's the photographer, not the camera. This is really a beautiful shot and most deserving of a ribbon. Huge congrats!
