A photo is worth a Thousand words. Sunset at Waianae Oahu Hawaii.

Update 2/18/08. Made a 20 by 30 enlargarment and the detail and resolution is astonishing even after I lowered the resolution to 240dpi. F8 to f11 on this Telephoto lens makes it a Prime Lens quality. I love the Nikkor 70-200 AFS VR 2.8 lens.

Exif: F Number: 9, Exposure Bias Value: -4/6, Exposure Time: 10/2500, Flash: flash did not fire, ISO: 100, White Balance: manual white balance, Focal Length: 200mm, Camera Model: NIKON D2X
