Nice to see some good stuff done with the 17-55 and the D2X. I had given up on that lens myself, trading it for a 28-70.

But I miss that lens very much. Seriously thinking about buying another.

My faves are the first and last. Would love to know the tech
details on #1.

I knew i'd see you over in this forum :)..

the details for the subway shot...

17-55 at 34mm
f/2.8
iso 800
1/80 second

i wrote about the circumstance of the shot in a response to inanola
earlier in this thread..

my camera settings basically mimic what i use with the d70..
normal tone curve
auto WB 0 (on the d70, i use auto-2 but the d2x doesn't seem to
need the warming)
manual exposure
matrix metering
AF-C (oh yeah, as per the AF method post on the d70 forum -- the
d2x is way better for this system because it has it's own dedicated
button)
all custom settings (hue, etc) set to zero..
adobe II color
+ some other stuff that i can't remember right now
