Fishermen at Port Medway
I was traveling very light, yesterday, just the humble little D40 and 16-85mm VR. I came across these chaps casting their lines into the sea in Port Medway. As is always a good practice, I struck a rapport with them and they had no issues allowing me to click away. I am amazed how well the built-in flash operates on the D40, this further enhancs my admiration for the Nikon flash system - I traditionally used to dump on tiny built-in flashes and dismissed them for "snapshots."
One of the key features of the D40 is its fast flash sync - up to 1/500th second. Unless you have tried to shoot fill-flash, you cannot appreciate such a valauble option.
