I haven't taken the camera out for weeks due to bad weather and laziness. Yesterday we had nice weather so I took the wife and Junior (actually his name is Tucker, a big goofy golden retriever) to the park. The first image is the original. The pp included an 8x10 tight crop, a high pass of 1.32, coupled with a 45-5-4 unsharp mask and finally a color boost. The posted images here seem to be washed out; I don't know why, because within CNX2 they appear to have more punch. But the reason I'm posting these is to demonstrate the capability of the D700 and 24-120 combo. Ordinarily for a picture like this I would use the 80-200 f/2.8. But that lens just doesn't seem to focus as fast as the 24-120. Comments and suggestions for boosting color are welcome.
