Jeff,

Wonderful snaps, especially the @One More Peek at the Lightup” is a wonderful shot without a tripod. I guess your hands are stable 😉
I am enjoying the fall colors of Kyoto from your blog. And it is wonderful.

Britto.

Jeffrey,
I notice that your photo of the lookout taken with your D700 & the 70-200mm VR, do not show any vignetting as reported by a few forums. Did you edit away the edges?
Alex

The Nikkor 70-200 does vignette at higher zoom ranges, and my photos often show that, including the one you refer to (the one below “The Real Overlook”), but I also added just a hint of vignette on that one in Lightroom, so it’s not a fair to judge with. Actually, it’s because I would see the vignette with the 70-200 since getting a full-frame body that I’ve started to use vignette here and there on my images…. it can be a really nice effect. Of course, I wish that the 70-200 didn’t force it on me, but in practice, it hasn’t actually caused problems. I recall one image where I didn’t want the slight vignette it gave, but quickly eliminated it with Lightroom’s lens-correction vignette control. —Jeffrey

Regarding the marker, it’d be niceif it had a reign name and year on it, but I’d bet it doesn’t. IMHO, I’d say it predates Meiji to a time when most traffic in Japan was on foot, hence the markers.

Gorgeous shots, as always. I’ve been following your blog for several months, and I can’t tell you how much I love your posts — each one is like a precious mini-break from cubicle existence.
