Comments (19)

Dmitry Donskoy, or Dmitry of the Don, sometimes referred to as Dmitry I (12 October 1350, Moscow – 19 May 1389, Moscow), son of Ivan II Krasny, reigned as the Prince of Moscow from 1359 and Grand Prince of Vladimir from 1363 to his death. He was the first prince of Moscow to openly challenge Mongol authority in Russia. His nickname, Donskoy (i.e., "of the Don"), alludes to his great victory against the Tatars in the Battle of Kulikovo (1380) which took place on the Don River.

D5000's ISO 1600 is such pure?


Дмитрий Валтонен on August 14, 2010

Hello, Enson! I love this composition too! Do you see priests on the left? they have spears in arms and went to defed their coutry among with warriors.. I'm happy you like it! Oh, I mentioned this too! As far as I kinw it has the same matrix as the D90.. of course you will see a noice if you take picture of the sky even with ISO800 but I'm really satisfied with qualities of photos I get!

Thank you for visit! I'm very happy to see you in my gallery! Best wishes to you!

林傑安(Enson) on August 14, 2010

Thanks a lot for your detailed explaining!

I love the traditional cultures!

Btw,my classmate has a D90,she said her camera's high ISO works nicely!

I will save money to buy a D300S in the near future.

Sincerely,Enson 傑安.

Tomorrow is my 15th birthday and I'll take a trip.

I'd like to take ideal pictures.

Best regards,Enson 傑安.

Дмитрий Валтонен on August 14, 2010

Well, a D300 is a really serious gun! I thought about buying something like this, but I decided that first I should buy something more simple.. I'm taking photos only for pleusure, and I don't work as a photograpler, so I decided to be a little pragmatic)

So tomorrow is your birthday! That's great!!! :o)))) My congratulations on your Birthday, dear Enson! I wish you life full woderful moments to remember!!! Have a great fun tomorrow !!! Yours faithfully Dmitriy from Moscow)))

林傑安(Enson) on August 15, 2010

Thanks a lot!

When I save enough money,I'd like to try D300S.

I'll post some new photos which I took today.

Today is really great!


Yours,Enson 傑安 from Taiwan.
