Muy nítido y preciso primer plano Frank.
Los detalles en las escamas de este gekko son increíbles... realmente.
Un perfecto DOF que además genera un fondo difuso, con excelente control de la iluminación.
Una muy buen ejemplo de un equipo bien equilibrado... la nueva D80 con una lente F2.8 de calidad.
Saludos... Ricardo

Very sharp and crisp close up Frank.
The details in the flakes of this gekko are incredible... really.
A perfect DOF that also generates a diffuse bottom, with excellent control of the illumination.
A very good example of a very balanced equipe... the new D80 with a lens F2.8 of quality.
Greetings... Ricardo
