Great shots, the D200 has has excellent noise control even at high ISO speeds. What kind of metering do you use underground?

Thanks, diffusedmind, I find the D200 is a bit noisy at or above ISO 1000. I use the noise reduction routine in PS Elements to keep it down and it seems to work ok. I shoot aperture priority underground, with the ap wide open and shutter is what it is. Usually I can get a shutter of at least 100 or 125. If I use my Nikkor 35mm f2 I can get a bit more than if I'm using my 17-50 f2.8.

Very nice shots! Is flagging really needed for those contractors?

 

I don't know, Matted33, as I didn't really inquire as to what they were doing nor could I make a guess.
