Hi ValeryD;

That's a good set of photos. I enjoyed the slideshow very much. A good day and a neat place to spend time and photograph horses, activities and the people. :) A fresh breath of air….

Nice shots Valery. Is it my monitor or the second photo has quite a bit noise on the dancer's leg?

Beautiful shots, ValeryD; :)

Especially the first one is a winner in my opinion. The dance moves are captured nicely. I can see the noise in the second photo as well but it's to be expected, I suppose, with all the darkness of the backstage.

Thank you guys!
Yes, it was totally dark on backstage, plus it was a77-2 not a99-2... But for me it's acceptable noise. :)

All are excellent. Your arms must be tired carrying all those cameras around.

Hi, ValeryD;

Indeed, all are wonderful; wonderful time of the day and wonderful beach conditions, too.
How do you manage keeping all cameras and lenses safe and ready when out and about in nature like these environment? Aren't wind, sand, dust, temperature, weight of the gear, etc. rather intimidating? :D

First of all, thank you!

To keep my cameras save in any environment very simple: :)
I have the big slingshot LowePro 302, :) where I can perfectly keep 3 cameras include lenses and two flash guns. I follow one rule - don't change the lenses outside the car or a building, just change the camera together with lens. 90% of working condition I have on a99-2 Zoom Minolta 80-200 or Tamron 70-300 USD, a77-2 + 16-80CZ or 24-70CZ and a57 without mirror, don't need AF for manual Fisheye, or other combination for some trips to a "wild life" - a99-2+24-70, a77-2+Tamron AP 70-300 USD.
PS. Oh! For cold weather (we have in the winter time temperature can be as low as -30 -40) - I don't use Zeiss lenses or Minolta zoom lenses, just not too expensive the fix lenses like DT35/1.8, minolta 50/1.7 or DT55-200.

Thank you for the extensive coverage of your gear management, ValeryD; :)

That bag is pretty nicely put together. Still must be getting a little heavy when the walk gets long… like when you take your dog for a beach walk. :) Nice dog and shot, by the way. I like how the background -ocean- almost dissolves into a blur, the focus being on your dog.

Thanks for sharing,
