Queenstown, New Zealand. Such an amazingly beautiful place!

New Zeeland is filled with beautiful places like this, got tons of pictures from my last holiday.

Nice ... IMHO, a dash of red somewhere in the photo would have made it stand out even more.

Lovely photos Scott. I enjoyed seeing them.

PS: A select few posters on CR might just tell you that your images lack DR and/or that your photos are "junk" ... don't believe them  ;)

I wouldn't want to be too quick on that as a lot of the material I've seen here and the "wow, cool" means a lot of junk is praised when it shouldn't be.

On the the point of "Images" good or bad, most people that actually post images on CR do so because they want to share these Images with other like minded people, not all the Images Posted are or claim to be "Ansel Adams" quality, they don't need to be, most post Images for constructive feed back in an endeavour to better their Photography, and most people that understand this give constructive criticism, constructive criticism is not the same as your comment above, your comment, unfortunately, is just plain bad manners.

And yes, often less than stellar Images receive positive reviews from people on CR, it's called "being positive", or "being nice", which seems to me to be so much easier than the opposite, which in case I need to spell it out, is "being negative" or "being an arsehole".

Well said!

BTW, has dilbert ever posted photos his masterpieces of artwork on CR?

Just to be clear, I'm not trying to say my work is particularly great or anything. Not at all. Just that I don't think it's "junk"... I've never been satisfied with it, but I don't think it's junk.
Neither do we!

+1... Jon,  there are some posters here who simply need to be ignored.

I agree you won't get the advice you are looking for here. Too many posters (myself included) suffer from GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome).

BTW, I'm surprised you haven't snagged the 24-70 II  :P

Nothing ... gotta work on my savings for the 300mm f/2.8L II.

BTW, I live in India and there is no such thing as a Black Friday sale in this country. Canon sets the pricing policy for its products with an iron hand and prices almost never come down, not even temporarily.

Lenses / Re: Next purchase 300mm f/2.8 L II - should I sell the 100-400?
« on: November 29, 2013, 05:37:28 AM »
Thanks for the replies.

So basically its neither here nor there ...  :-\  I guess I'll wait and get the 300mm first.

I don't want to end up with seller's remorse. Used 100-400 pop up for resale in India infrequently and if I sell it now and need it again, I'll probably have to get a new one  :(

Why don't you try it and let us know?  ;)

The settings registered under the custom modes do not change the global settings for the 5d3. I guess it should be the same for the 7d as well.

What is BVI?

To get me upgrade to 5D Mark IV, Canon needs to have these:

1. One full stop better in high ISO
2. 8-10 fps (even when the battery at 3/4 or half left)
3. Tries not to sell @ $4000 from beginning, then, drops to $2500 few months later

That last point was completely avoidable, If you bought from BVI. :)

I initially thought why the heck "British Virgin Islands"  ??? but then it struck me ... BigValueInc  ;)

It has been around for some time now. If I remember correctly, Mt Spokane mentioned it first (here on CR) a few months back.

Cheers ... J.R.

At this point, I'm completely satisfied with the MK3. What I'd like is some new lenses.

+1 ... Same here.
