I returned from a trip I took to the Philippines last month. I took my three Nikon SB900's with me and thought I would try using them in CLS mode outside to photograph a 400 year old church in my wife's neighborhood where we were married in 1999 (It was actually built in 1611) I only used 2 SB900's for this particular shot and used my Nikon D700 as the master. I took the shot about 35 minutes or so prior to sunrise to get the twilight effect. My wife held one 20 feet from me camera left, my brother in law did the same camera right... They were about 30 feet from the front of the church and I was about 60 feet away. It worked perfectly! I'm surprised that the SB900's can detect the D700 commands from an angle of about 45-55 degrees outdoors!
