@Kaushik
Phenomenal click, love the light! Whatis the EXIF on that? i have opted for a 10 month plan actually, so not yet robbed any bank haha!

@RJ
That is one of your best shots man! Is it a well mapped realistic HDR. And thanks!

@TSEA
Nice stuff. and thanks.

@Extreme torque
I guess I am your opposite, I love those surreal shots! but yeah it overkills sometimes. I guess it depends on the mood you try to create. I am generally a drama loving guy! hehe..

Ok, so i tried a hand with my new gear, not satisfied though...and yeah its a 100% crop.

Aperture: f/2.8
ISO:ISO 200

Another couple more, no post processing in either of them, both clicked with the 70-200VR :

@Riju, yeah, the poor fellow had no other option ;-).. BTW that's a very surreal looking scenery..
@TSEA, thanks dude.
@TG, Thanks Man, I think speed was around 1/640, f4 and ISO 800.
Seems like the humming bird was out of focus. Those creatures will be very difficult to shot, probably you need to use racing photography technique(I don't know the correct term, it's basically pre-focusing at certain point and wait for the Car/bike/ bird to be there and become trigger happy once they reach that point)

Nice shot of the Humayun's Tob there ET.

Thanks for sharing the exif TG. 1/3000 f/2.8 and ISO 200. and this much bright picture... wow I am a fan of D700 already.

And, the first picture in this post is amazing. Nice capture there. I love that superb bokeh effect and the sharpness of the leaves. 70-200 VR seems to be a great lens.
