LPLIV's recent activity

  • I agree with Sleepwalker, good shot but there were a few things I missed in this shot brought up by others... I love the bokeh backgroud but her angle should be changed just slightly (and maybe ...
  • C: I have been out of the Bay Area for a few years but there are a few places you could use. (None of them are really close though...)   There is an old monastery just before you get to cupertino ...

    Craig..  So true..  I loved to work on computers in my past life but when I started working for a new organization I was one of the very few who even knew how to turn on a computer let alone use ...

  • Thanks for your answers, I guess that I will relax.. Phil
  • I recently bought a new 70-200VR2 lens for work and fun.  I noticed after about 700 shot or so that I was hearing a feint noise.  It was definitely not a focus motor noise as I have a 24-70 that I ...
  • Replied in 70-200 f/4
    Dave: I like you went thru the "Which one should I buy" stage and chose the f2.8 vrii.  I rented the f4 for two weeks shooting S. Utah/N. Arizona and loved it but here is what I found. (I shoot FF ...
