    I just got back from Turkey late last night. I was very limited on weight and girth for carry-on luggage so could not take my better cameras or lenses and instead took a 18-105 kit lens, and 10-20 Sigma low-end wide angle and my D7000, no grip or even extra battery. We came upon a group taking photos of tourists in costumes so my girl wanted to try one only of the dresses and accessories and they allowed me to take my own photos if I paid them 10 TL, ($0.52). They had some fixed lighting that was rather dim so higher than desired ISO was needed. These were taken in an ancient underground cistern dating to the 1st century BC. They only wanted 35cents per 8x10 glossy print for their own photos. I had to use ISO 2000 and max aperture at that FL was 4.5. Victoria liked them but like all girls, automatically said: "these make me look fat". She is 5'6 and 112 lbs and fit but think she is fat in these photos...Women! Lots of great photo opportunities where these were taken, Istanbul but our stay in the center of the country in Cappadocia area where we explored the unique geology or the area and stayed a couple nights in a cave. Many of the homes and businesses are built into ancient rock formations, some have had continuous human occupants for 7000 years. Our hotel has 7 rooms, our room was to stories and 50 square meters. The walls were original but floors and fixtures were modern and the bath area the largest and most modern equipped I have seen in a hotel.
    I was impressed with how well the D7000 worked with the cheap plastic lenses. Without the grip it is light, small and solid feeling in hand. I took 786 frames and still have 60% charge left on my single battery.

    My wife really wants to go to Turkey. Can you tell me the name of the hotel? PM is okay if you don't want to post it here.

    Nice pics! Nice travel companion!

    Turkey is really interesting and has changed a lot since my last visit years ago. We went to the area Cappadokia in the center of the country which is mountainous with a form of sandstone that was easy enough to work with bronze and iron age tools so thousands of sandstone weathered columns that have hollowed out interiors with windows. What is it known for most is the hot air balloons every morning. The hotel is called Cappadocia Cave Hotel....I think, I will have to look it up for the full name. My GF made the arrangements. Be sure to get the room that has the spa. Later we went to Istanbul with it one of the most fascinating cities in the world, with 3 sections on separate banks of the Bosphorus; 2 on the Europe side, and 1 on the Asia side. For first time visitors, the best place to stay for exploring on foot is on the European side, Sultanahmet area where the most historic and authentic old Turkey, any place around the Blue Mosque will be great for walking with hundreds of small hotels and inns on narrow winding streets with grand plazas and historic buildings a block or so away. Here are a few early morning images taken from our terrace. The cone-shaped structures are all hollowed out ancient homes or storage monoliths of sandstone. We both gained weight, so many cool little cafes and street sellers. Winter is a good time to go, less tourism decent weather and lower prices, more relaxed and friendlier. Overall, it IS a very hospitable society and much safer than 40 years ago when I was there last.

    Been a wee while since last on here, enthusiasm has tended to wax and wane a bit lately. New grandson has sparked a bit of interest to try a bit of portraiture my attempts up to this time weren't what you would class as roaring successes. Used mainly natural lighting with a bit of flash bounced of the ceiling ,wondered what the thoughts were as to skin tone and composition.

    Cheers Pete
