Hi. Fantastics shots you have there in your gallery!!

I have just bought the 18-200VR for my D70 and was wandering what
in-camera settings you used for your shots and any PP.

As you can see I prefer Aperature Priority (with a little Exp compensation if needed - check your histograms) and I have found better results leaving the WB on Sunny then tweaking it in Capture NX, if it needs it (rather than using Auto WB as this is subject to change for each shot.) I also found the shots up to ISO 400 to be very good, 800 starts to get a little dicey.

Pic 1: aperature Priority, NR off 1/8 sec. at f7.1 WB sunny ISO 400
Pic 2: aperature Priority, NR off 1/13 sec. at f5.0 WB sunny ISO 100
Pic 3: aperature Priority, NR off 1/13 sec. at f3.5 WB sunny ISO 800
Pic 4: aperature Priority, NR off 1/13 sec. at f5.0 WB sunny ISO 400

Thanks for looking.
