Very nice John! The colors are vibrant, and you did a great job of capturing the emotion from the moment. I like the angle you took, and think it was a great idea to sit on the curb and get that "kid's eye view" as you described it! Perfect perspective, and a great job overall.

I have the D800 (not the "e"), and love the 70-200 VRII combo as well. It is almost as if these 2 were just made for each other!

Thanks James. Agreed. This is absolutely the best combination I have ever shot over the years.

That said when at a crowd event I do opt often for the 28-300 VR just for the flexibility. For example I knew the 70-200 VR II would do a better job but I needed some wider angle too ... and changing lenses in a jammed event just is not do-able.
