Very impressive - love the tonalities and shadow detail

Very skilled work ! Perfect compositions, and great captured expression.

fill flash helps freeze any action a bit and taking several exposures helps improve the odds of getting a sharp one as part of the series.

The above two 'items' are the only things I haven't been doing. I shoot mostly landscape (really love your work in this area, BTW!), so no flash, but I do use a very good tripod/head combo (RRS), remote shutter release and live view. Maybe I need to take a small series of the same shot? I do this with HDR work, but not really for a static landscape shot (once I have the correct exposure).

Best of luck with your D800...

Thanks, I'm hoping for the best.

Regards,

Allen

.....Just from an amateur......''Sometimes it's to your advantage for people to think you're crazy.” I am only a hoobyist, I cannot and do not give expert advice, dont expect it, just take it as a suggestion to think about, but only if you wish to. We should try to not wait for life to happen, while it passes us by.

Amazing moments and really, primate portraits. Love each of them. The eyes are incredible, the subtle tones are a nice processing style, and the subject isolation really allows one to focus on the little details.
