You're Gonna want to shoot that again, Sorry!

Fall Creek Sunrise

I've shot this scene many times before but today I had new equipment and as the D800 ad says,"SORRY BUT YOU'RE GOING TO WANT TO RESHOOT EVERYTHING YOU'VE EVER SHOT." I'm sure this applies to any new camera, lens, or technique.

One of the fun and challenging aspects of photography is progression, doing something new or better, learning a new skill or method. Jay Masiel said that while art is thousands of years old, photography is a little over a hundred years old. We have barely scratched the surface of what can be done! So...shoot it again, make it better, make it unique, make it new again and relish every step of this journey that has no end.

Mistaken Identity

Several people have commented that they thought this image taken with the Nikon D800 was an HDR image when in fact it is taken from a single shot without HDR processing.

Arrival Time

Much has been spoken about the size of the 36.3 megapixel sensor in the D800. But in addition to the high resolution, the sensor has amazing color depth and dynamic range (the highest rated sensor ever tested by Dxomark) and I think this is what gives the images a film-like or HDR look. A pretty amazing landmark camera IMHO.
