Hi Randy,

I tried some more shots yesterday evening and it came out much better. I've bought the D300 from a pro (who sold his D300 and D700 because he recently acquire 2 D4s and a D800E), and he has configured the cam for neutral colors and no in-camera sharpening, therefore the pictures looked a bit dull to me. However after a little bit of post-processing, they looked much better.

I will going on a long drive to hills this Friday and will click a lot there. I will post some of those pics here for you expert's critique.

One question - While looking in the view finder, there is lots of dust though not much of it is visible in the photos. Is it due to a dirty sensor or something else?
