Another flower shot with the 135mm ... this one at f/2.8
Great! What flower is that?

Not bad Mt Spokane. I too await the migration, especially the robins. Haven't seen any here yet.
I had a lot of robins come through my place last couple of weeks. I'm in central Texas so they are on their way north.
Good place to plug the Chino CA. airshow that usually takes place the first weekend in May. Emphasis on this
show is usually piston powered warbirds with an occasional nod to jets (before Obama cut demonstration funds from the air force and national guard). great weekend for anyone interested in the old birds.
Does anyone have a good workflow from RAW files to large prints (i.e. 16x20, 20x30, 24x36, etc...)? I'm shooting from a Canon 6D and am using Lightroom 5/Photoshop CC to do post processing. I am using a 2009 iMac. Are colorimeters really necessary (I don't really want to spend ~$100 just to calibrate my screen)?
CAC Mustang shots from the weekend's 100 years of Military Aviation at Pt Cook. CAC Mustangs were the Aussie built version of the P-51D.
Fantastic!! And...is that your 911?
Thanks, no its my dads 911

Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) by Robin SS Lee, on Flickr
Stunner, absolute stunner.
The Images of the Hawk ?? trying to lift the fish out of the water on your flicker site, just as good.
Welcome to CR.
I also like this image, but it almost seems like the light illuminating the Falcon, is a cooler color temperature than the light that should have been on it, given the background.
I think that's just the color of the bird. Or are you suggesting the photographer brought his lighting equipment for the shot?
I love the engine sound of those big warbirds, whether radials or the very distinctive sound of those huge V-12s. Even when they fly low and loud overhead they're far more pleasant than a jet.
Way back, when I was still in my 20s, I wangled a ride in a 2nd-seat equipped P51 with an aerobatic pilot.
What an experience! I held my lunch until we landed but I was as green as the camou' paint on that old plane! That was 45 minutes I'll never forget.
I'd still like to find a ride in a Corsair and a P47.
CarlTn, I'm 5'-9, 145 lbs and retired but I can walk comfortably with my 6D and 300 X2 for hours, with breaks shooting of course. That's almost 7 lbs. There is a way I carry the camera/lens that really helps - the front of the Jobu foot caught by my right hand fingers and the camera cradled in the 90 degree bend of my right arm, strap over left shoulder and under right, quite short so it's tight when I shoot. I duck branches and jump puddles and so forth. No complaints.
Two more lbs for the 500 makes me wonder though. Its length might be more of a problem. For reference a 1Dx body is 3.4 lbs - my friend bought and I resisted after handling his so it's not like I'm ambivalent about the added weight of these choices. Don't think the cost doesn't factor in too!
But 6D, 300 X2 is quite OK, absolutely.
How do those of you hiking with the 500 handle it?
Went to an airshow and they had P-51 on display that was getting overhauled. Just in case your curious Champion spark plugs.
