Ok, tracked these down

In the first shot the focus point is slap-bang in the middle of the left-hand post, [1/1600 and 2.5]

In the second shot the point of focus is the guard on the left, [1/2,500 and f2.5], but the girl in orange is distinctly in focus. I haven't taken the exif data out of the image, but don't know if it'll be retrievable so

No worries....cool pics

Please go here http://www.dpreview.com/members/settings/profile

And under the "Privacy and Safety" tab check "Allow" under "Allow visitors to download full size original images from your gallery" That way I can download the pic to ViewNX2 and check the camera settings you used.

BTW, If using this method

....the 35mm plane of focus falls outside the DOF consistently at f1.8.....Nikon can and will/should fix it....for free if in warranty.
