Hi Michel,

of course, it´s hard to judge skin tones if you don´t know the model The girl is dark skinned. The young man usually applies fake tan and will do so in our next shooting, so it will be totally different next time.

Since I am not a native English speaker I might have not nailed the subject with my original post. I don´t care much about the color of skin tones as that is highly variable, I care for the tonal transitions and the homogenity of tones from the shadows to the lights. And there I feel the D800 is just wonderful and a joy to use.
