I try to use anything that makes my images look better, whether it is cropping, using layers, LR adjustments ... you name it ... that's in my opinion, is the whole point of going digital.

I don't care whether anyone thinks PP or cropping is bad or that I am breaking some rule which was made in the days of film.

Me same

So does it have IS?

Like your sense of humor! :)

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

The generator van caught fire at shoot today. Lucky I carried my 1dx to work this morning.

Look, the reviewer obviously hasn't read the commentary on this website regarding the lens because quite clearly, without autofocus, this lens is not worth $4000 and nobody will buy it without autofocus, even if it is the sharpest lens since the big bang.

And how would you conclude this?

I crop ALL my photos. To some degree or the other.

I would cry if I didn‘t have Photoshop.


"Ridiculous" for one may be quite reasonable for another.  I think some will change their minds once they see some of the images this lens will be capable of.  I've certainly been tempted by the Zeiss Planar Macro after seeing some of those images.  By the way, this lens doesn't even cost as much as my coffee machine (La Cimbali).  That may be ridiculous to some, but more than worthwhile for me (the coffee machine, that is).

Right on brother!

bloody hell, everyone is so damn paranoid... "They" are not out to get us. "They" couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery... as demonstrated by the (North) American government falling apart this week.

Absolutely! I have been on facebook for a long time now and am still alive! Friend me: Sanjay F. Gupta....

This is the sort of thing you see at Duba Plains in the Okavango Delta, one of the few places you get Lion that Hunt only during the day, only the Buffalo and mostly in the water, amazing stuff.

My apologies for cheating, this Image wasn't shot with the 200-400, I wish I'de had it at the time though.

Shot with the 7D + 70-300f/4-f/5.6 @ 300 I think.

I love this photo!!!!! But seems over sharpened?

"This is about God."!!!!!!!! Oh lord!

It is not correct to comment on the situation without knowing complete facts but this being about God is so far fetched.

Maybe to you. I have known many Christian pastors that take the exchanging of the vows very seriously. The Bride and Groom are taking a Vow before God. Very serious and somber thing.

He wears a collar with a cross on the back and dresses like a priest?  I would assume he is either Catholic or some Christian denomination.

The photographer (or the Bride and Groom) chose to post this video on You Tube. So it is very correct to comment on it since they obviously are wanting to be noticed. It was placed in a public forum to be seen.

Yes yes to ME. Without offending ANYONE, I do not think two people getting dressed a certain way and taking wows has anything to do with God. My opinion.

 the priest is wearing a collar and as takesome1 pointed out, it is most certainly a Catholic Priest or at the very least a Christian one.

 it is FACT that the sacrament of marriage in Christianity is about God and the couple coming together before Him. ask any Priest...they hold the marriage ceremony very sacred. i served next to priests as an altar server during masses and many weddings for over 10 years. i know what i am talking about.

 i am not trying to debate the validity of there being a God or any of that. i am not a practicing catholic anymore. it is their beliefs, not mine, that are important during that moment. i still hold respect for other's beliefs regardless of the denomination. you can never go wrong with respect.

 the photographers were in the wrong in this situation. the priests reaction was totally justified based on the religious doctrine of the ceremony. you don't have to agree with it or like it, but you should be aware of it.

I see your point entirely, totally. I just find it difficult to believe that God is part of any of these man made rituals. Just my thoughts... I do not want to offend anyone here. Pls do not get me wrong.
