This is the first shot with the new Nikon D300 and Nikkor 16-85mm VR lens and I'm really happy with the quality of the photo. In fact, I can hardly wait to go out and shoot more. :)
I shot it very quickly at work (I made only two shots) and without using flash (only available TL light) at ISO 640. I was very surprised to see the low amount of noise, especially compared to my D70s.
In the picture, you can see Manu Delcon, IT consultant and also an amateur photographer like me.
Fantastic concept perfectly executed. And I, just like you, am very impressed by the lack of noise at ISO640. I am very happy with my own dSLR but it so badly performs at higher ISOs. I feel a bit of envy growing up right now... ;)
p.s. wonderful bokeh, colours and expression.
Nice! Love the expression too. :-D
I know what you mean about the quality with the D300, I just bought one last Thursday and taking photos of birds in awful light on Saturday I was amazed to get pretty usable results even though I was going from ISO 800 up to ISO 1600! With my old D80 I was pushing it very hard to use ISO 640 for nature shots.

Best wishes from AUSTRIA :-)
very nice capture as usual... neat concept... and the light definitely reminds me of the monotonous flickering fluorescence of my server room... not sure if that's where he is, but he looks like perhaps his girlfriend left him for OSX.
as a "fellow" D70 owner, every time the urge to buy a new camera came over me, i would just come to this site and get reminded that it is not the equipment but the photographer. I think your pictures really shows what the D70 can do in the hands of someone who knows what he is doing
@amintorres: ..."applying a multiply filter on the bars"... ? I have no idea what this means, but i'm curious. It would be great if you could give me some info on this. :)
@kenneth: Sorry mate. After using cheap 2nd hand consumer gear (body and lenses) for about 10 years, I felt that I kinda deserved to have something a little better. Maybe it's still not the 'real' pro equipment but this is definitely more than adequate for me! :) ..But you're absolutely right and I'll never deny that the photographer's eye and creativity is the most important part of it all. Plenty of evidence can be found online.
