Lovely shot! What did you use to take the picture? What were the settings? What was the light source? So many questions! :)

Went walking today on the Beach, found this Guy, not as pretty as the recent shot by Eldar, less well fed perhaps.

1Dx & Otus 55f/1.4 @ f/1.4
Oh, this is massively good!
And I believe he came ashore from this ship ...
Ha! Ha! Ha!

Looks like after the release of the 7D2 and a few days of furious discussions on that (and other entirely unrelated matters) a sense of humour seems to be getting back to the group :)

Nice picture! Btw, after taking the pic, did you at least offer it something to eat? :P

Nice shot Dustin! How and where did you shoot this?

I shot this in Parc Omega in Quebec, Canada.  How?  I was shooting the pack when I noticed this guy off by himself laying so perfectly on the rock in that sea of grass.  He quickly became my focus.
Wow! Just perfect! I was wondering how you came about this chap. I guess sometimes the scene/picture draws you to it :)

The window was open and the guy had his p&s camera trying to get a long shot when this happened.

or use Magic Lantern Dot-Tune AFMA  8). I have had excellent & repeatable results

You've had better success than me, I found dot tune to be somewhat unreliable.
I have not tried it but that is exactly what J.R. said in another post... Since I use Reikan Focal and am happy with the results I don't think I'll bother.

Photography Technique / Re: Clouds

Thanks for the advice. Appreciate you taking the time to respond.

Most welcome.  You will generally get more accurate answers if you do your own research and read articles written by experienced photography educators on your topic, than by asking a question on a canon fan site.
;D
LOL!

Actually there are a number of photographers on this forum who share pictures and technique. Take a peek at the landscape or birding threads and you will be able to identify folks you can seek advise from. We are not just a bunch of groupies :)
