    I got there a little late in the evening with my buddy DJ DNS who works at eye-fi (decided we needed to get out of the office). The sun was a little harsh but we tried anyways.

    C&C welcomed

    1.) shot with 14-24

    2.) 70-200 into the sun

    3.) 70-200 sun to back

    The rest here, nothing exciting from a photography aspect, just some snapshotish stuff trying to get used to the different focus modes on the D700. I think next time I need to use a smaller apature to give myself some focus forgiveness, I had a few cool shots, but I was just not on with the focus due to the small DoF.

    Yeah, definatly not the best conditions, the park had a flow to it, so all the action was always going away from me (when back was to sun), #2 had to go B&W due to shooting into the sun.

    I like it in b&w, but it needs a diff crop or something, framing feels awkward. To me at least.

    2 is cool, and IMO 1 would look better if you cropped out the 2 dudes on the right.
