Such a wonderful portrait! New gear sounds great! Have fun!

You like the Nikon and this must be a later model. Still good portrait photos so your recipe shouldn't change. Maybe the lens is better?

Awesome camera, well done! Looking forward to seeing the results! Beautifully shallow depth of field from the full-frame sensor and f/1.4 aperture here.

He laughs so cute. Nice dof. Sounds like a great purchase!
October 31st, 2013  
Love it! But then your D5100 photos were stunnng, too!
October 31st, 2013  
I think the colors are better and overall quality is much better, though, here!

Nice portrait!

Wow, lovely portrait and great gear. The D800 will certainly test your biceps!!

I keep coming back to this photo. It amazes me how long the dof stays with the fence, yet makes such great blurring in the foliage of the trees in the background. The combination is impressive.

@abirkill Thank you, Alexis. And thanks again for talking me through some of the nuances of the Nikon cameras!!

@janim Well, sir, you just made my heart melt a little. Thank you for the generous kindness! :-)

@dauber The full frame and that extra depth with the 1.4 really does make a difference that I couldn't achieve with my crop sensor (although, yes, the D5100 makes great photos, too....). I read up some more on the D800 today and took a few more test shots. I look forward to sharing some more photos soon.
November 1st, 2013  
oh cool! congrats on the new toys :) and such a beautiful portrait - ya done good with it!
