AF-S 16-35mm VR - San Diego (2010.01.24)



16-35mm f/4 VR @ 16mm

Aperture Priority @ f/22 (1/25th sec)


Capture NX2 (Levels adjust)


I got the new lens and was able to shoot it while in San Diego week before last.


I almost ruined my D3s to get this shot... I wanted to get the camera as low to the ground as I could. So, I flipped the center column upside-down so that I could hang the D3s between my tripod legs. BTW... the live view + virtual horizon features really made this easy to compose.


I wasn't really paying attention... OK... I was paying attention to the pretty girl who was walking by... when a wave came in and flooded my spot... coming within about 1/8 of an inch from the top of the prism (hanging upside down)!!


All is well... and I got a shot that I really like.
