Well, I wasn't sure exactly how I was going to break in my new Nikon D200, when lo and behold, what should appear a few blocks away but a St. Patrick's Day parade! I'm not really a big fan of parades, but they do present some decent photographic opportunities.
I'm very pleased with the camera overall. Picture quality is sharp, the camera does an excellent job with color (although the flesh tones could be a little warmer), the rapid-fire continuous shooting mode is impressive. I think even the black & white shots look a little better. Also, I love the USB 2.0, which lets me download the photos about four times faster.

Some young Irish dancers preparing to perform. I am unfamiliar with this particular face-touching ritual - must be an Irish thing.
The Orb is my master. I... must... obey... The Orb...
