Canon EF Prime Lenses / Re: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

Thanks rpt and Maximilian. :)

I agree that the first one is best because of the ascending left to right direction.

I recently noticed that the composition of many of the birds and animal shots posted here on CR that I like the best are the ones in which the animal is facing towards the left side of the frame. I finally figured out that is probably because, since I read from left to right, I subconsciously scan from left to right and therefore see the animals face first instead of it's rear.

Really nice pictures, serendipidy!

I mostly like the palm leaves. Because of that geometrical pattern and the tiny white hair and waterdrops.
About composition: did you try to do this motive diagonal? (Not this specific picture. Surely won't work. I meant reframing)
Might give it an extra touch if it brakes out of the rectangular order.

Thanks Maximilian. Sorry for delay, but just read your reply. Good suggestion about diagonal framing. I took this and cropped again on diagonal several tries.

Yes, I consider myself lucky to live in such a nice place.

Magnificent! Where there's smoke there's sky on fire ;D

I posted these images earlier and they didn't show up. I hope they don't double post.


Very nice series Larry.  Well done.

Very nice work. I'm trying to decided if I want the new 7D MK II as I'm now using the 5D MK II and was interested in the 1.6 crop factor for wildlife.
These are excellent!

Love the recent shots guys.  I never tire of chickadees.  Eldar my sympathies and to prove I mean it here's another Pileated shot, all I get except for Downy, chickadees and nuthatches with the odd grosbeak thrown in.

He never stays still either, with that head constantly darting every direction.

Fantastic capture, Jack. So sharp and such great colors.
