Posting this as an example of 1dx output as the light was really really low.
For those who are interested, these 'monks' bathe in Ganges every twelve years in a huge affair called Kumbh mela.
Lovely Image Sanj, Lad with the Axe would grab my attention.
Another place I've never been to, India, absolutely have to spend some time there, so many Beautiful places and Gorgeous People to see & experience.
I'de love to get there for the Tigers, but I've heard so many poor reports on how crazy the experience has become with Huge crowds of vehicles & "Me Me" type Photographers, if there's a more in depth quiter & more personal way to do this I'de appreciate the heads up.
I went to Ankor Wat last year for 4 days, last time I was there was 1986, then it was an amazing experience, this time around I couldn't wait to get away, so sad really.
I ordered mine from B&H at about 7:00a Eastern on the morning after the announcement.
I emailed them today asking when I could expect shipment, and if they knew whether mine would be shipped from their initial allocation.
I got the standard "we ship them in the order that we received the orders. We don't know" response.
Cleaning up the OP's file was very easy.
If you shoot RAW you have to take the time to learn to process it, if you don't, can't or won't you are better off shooting a custom Picture Style jpeg.
sorry my psychic powers are malfunctioning at the moment you are going to have to fill in a fair bit mor info here if you want a serious answer from anyone since without my psychic powers I have no way of know WTF you already have, how much money you have to spend or what it is you want to do with your gear
failing that buy 4 1Dx bosies and 2 of each every Canon L series lens 12 Ex600RT flashes
oh better get a couple of 5Dmk3 for backups and so you can do continuous RAW video with Magic lantern
that should about cover it
Other than this being exceptionally good advise, it's also what I miss after living overseas for 30 years, the Aussie sense of what most of us call, Humour, it doesn't quire translate in the rest of the world, but I still love it, I'm still laughing as I write this.
The glass used by Canon for the screen is so astonishingly tough, the only people who would say you need protection are the manufacturers of the protection.
I shoot every day with two-three bodies and have done so with digital for all of this century. I smashed a screen on a 1Ds when it flopped back on a tripod that wasn't locked. Canon CPS fixed it for free in 10 minutes. I very slightly damaged a screen on a D30 (not to be confused with the 2006 30D) after it bashed continuously against a belt buckle while attempting to ride a horse. I'm not especially careful with my gear, and other than those two careless mishaps every screen I've had has been pristine at the end of 2-3 years of hard labour when the bodies are upgraded.
Save your protection for other fun pursuits.
1Dx 300f/2.8, Shot @ f/6.3 1/320th ISO1600
The choice on the day was Leopards, or, A pack of Wild Dog had come into the area, no choice, these Animals are not only Beautiful but severely endangered, so we looked for these Guys all day, finally found them hunting just on Sunset. The tall Grass made them, for me, exceptionally hard to shoot in the fading light, so every shot I tried with the Pack Running I blew, but everything stands still sometime.
Eml...I envy you...you cover such an incredible range of photography....and you do it very, very well...again, nice shot!
So many great photographers and mentors on this site. I used to visit other websites...now, pretty much only this one.
It's when you start adding elements not in the original capture, It's no longer photography.
I could not agree more, adding to the image changes it to photographic art; however, subtracting (the corner of a building, a flying bird, contrails, et cetera) is perfectly acceptable. Obviously anything you can do it a wet darkroom, you can 'legally' do the same in photoshop.
This is an interesting article from Bryan Peterson on this issue. Thought I'd share
