    Love the shallow depth of field!

    Thanks! :)

    Since its not so easy to get a shallow depth of field on a non-DSLR, I tried my best by using macro and super macro modes plus zooming in as much as I could to the subject with the camera still being able to auto focus and it resulted in a shallow DOF.

    Good Luck!

    P.S. I love high mega pixel counts because I can crop with very little quality loss!

    It's not just high megapixels, but good glass. Megapixels won't fix bad glass. Good glass can fix lower megapixels. (Which is why the D2Hs is available)

    These are two fantastic pictures. Well done.

    avisitor,

    How is it that good glass can fix lower megapixels? I've always wondered why Nikon keeps the D2Hs in production, but would you be kind enough to ellaborate.

    Thanks.

    J. Keenan,

    Thank you for the clarification about the D2Hs .... it was like an itch that I couldn't scratch. But your reply makes it very clear as to why Nikon keeps this model.

    Be it very controversial, having good glass can normally allow you to slightly upsample the image without much apparent quality loss. For example, in photoshop, try to upsample (use bicubic interpolation) a 4 MP image from a P&S and try to upsample (same interpolation) a 4 MP image from a dSLR; compare the apparent quality loss.

    Good glass results in a better image; a better image can be printed bigger.
