Some shots from yesterday around my school:

And highly annoyed: I really like the first shot of the lemon. Better than the second. The lighting is better in the second, however the first is composed better I think.

You sould make a flickr... or some way to put your photos online..

Thanks man, I keep trying .

I'll give flickr some consideration, but I'm quite keen on building websites, so I might have a go at putting one together for photography.

Here's a couple more I've taken recently. I'm slowly getting to grips with this camera now, so hopefully I can start to pump out a few more half-decent shots as time progresses.





I don't know if you saw my earlier post about diffraction and small apertures on the D300? It would seem that, due to the Airy Disk size and the size of the photosites on the crop frame D300 (VS the D700 or D3 etc), diffraction starts to set in at around F8 and if you go past F11 to get greater DOF, the fine details start to get so mushy that the extra DOF you’re getting, just isn't worth it in terms of overall image quality.

This diffraction issue is the biggest limitation I've found with the otherwise excellent D300. I understand it's not just limited to the D300, but all small photosite sensor cameras, but especially for landscape I'm starting to wonder if it might be a problem?

With this in mind I was wondering what F stop/s you usually use for landscape ( I know you don't do a huge amount of landscape ) or for shots where you're trying to maximise DOF? Where is the best trade-off between diffraction and DOF in your opinion? Is F8 good enough, or would you go smaller, to F9, 10, 11 or more?

Oh, btw, I'm lovin' Capture NX2 .

Thanks!

I'm not sure what PP is to be honest? PowerPoint, lol? Umm, I use GIMP for quite a bit of image editing and it has a neat plugin that will allow you to add text to images quickly and easily. GIMP and said plugin are both legally free and available to download.

Let me know what you mean exactly and I'll try and help if I can .

I was doing a pencil mod and decided to take a picture of it. The exposure is 2" and I had it at F5.6

With the 12-24 nikkor, F8 also gives plenty of DOF for the landscape shots I do.

This was shot at F8:


At full size, its sharp all the way through. There was really no need to use a smaller apeture.

Hope this helps!?!
LOL, yeah, essentially what you've said, is exactly what I'd already discovered. I think I'll do more testing between F7.1 and F11 to determine the absolute optimum DOF VS Diffraction. In real terms, diffraction starts at F8 on the D300 sensor, but the perceptible effects don't really start to show until a little smaller it would seem.
