Nikon D200 @ 80mm, 1/80 sec, f/6.3, ISO 125
Man, what a difference a couple of weeks can make. I've had quite a lot going on recently and this coupled with the fact that I'm heading down to London for a six month stint in a week's time has meant that the blog has been relegated to the bottom of the pile.
So the first thing you'll probably notice is a couple of entries in the exif data that you've not seen before. I've only managed a couple of outings with the D200 so far but I have to admit that I've been mightily impressed with its performance. I'll be sure to report back a little more thoroughly and attempt to justify (if I can) the upgrade.
I took this shot on Monday on what was a rather impromptu, but much welcomed, visit from the lovely Jem at shutterjunkie. She finally took me up on my offer to give her a tour of the wonderful city of Edinburgh, although it turned out that I wasn't much of a tour guide (my knowledge is pretty much limited to reading the tourist info signs)! It was the last day of the festival (I think) and the weather wasn't particularly great so the streets weren't quite as busy as they normally are at the weekend. But there was still a handful of the usual entertaining street performers, so we managed to get some shots in.
Anyway, was a really good day so thank you Jem for puting up with the horrible train journey to get here. It's amazing what she'll do just to get her hands on a Nikon :)
