Just fabulous! I particularly liked the North Cascade National Park, Washington shot.

Using this camera more and more is becoming second nature. While the DR is better with the nikons at the moment, I just got my mind blown again with this file processed from my MK3.
Wow! Could you detail what you did? It looks fantastic.

Heres the basic processing. I also did + Adj. Brushes + Tone curves.
Thanks. I need to get into these features of LR now.

Looks like mirror slap to me. Reminds me of my first attempt at star trails :)

However, on pixel-peeping I thought the rear columns looked a bit more in focus but then may be it is that the light on the front columns is distracting my eyes.

I forgot to vote the last time so I did just now. 100-400L. It is a great lens for the price. I used it yesterday to take pictures at a water sports event. An engineering college in the city was hosting their 85th Regatta. I shot 400 pictures and about 95% of them with the 100-400L. Even the shots taken in the dark. I was amazed. I had carried my 24-105 but it hardly got used. The versatility of having a zoom for such events is fantastic. Like neuro says if your distance to subject changes significantly framing becomes hard.

I think you are looking at the wrong curves.
I agree. Some people can't focus on the right stuff...

I do wish people would give prior warning when posting close-up spider pictures. It would save us arachnophobes the trouble of cleaning up the coffee we involuntarily threw across the room.
Sorry about that. There will be warning the next time.

Edit: apparently you may not be referring to my spider shot which is in the macro section but point noted.

Ok, so I have the 100L macro and 25mm extension tubes and the 1.4x. This is a sample image set. One is a 100% crop and the other is the whole picture reduced to 1152 x 768. BTW, no editing has been done...

The image was auto focused using live view - my eyes are not as good as they used to be...

Hope this helps. Sorry my images here are not as pretty as as Mt. S's :)

The resized whole image...


The 100% crop...

I'm going to start putting "bikini" in the title all of my posts from now on . . . 8)
Great idea! A title like "Bikini street shots" will get a lot of visitors ;)

100-400L @400mm, 1/800, f6.3, ISO 100.

There is always the one nonconformist. Can you find him?

Yeah... top left guy scratching his a$$....   :P
LOL!  ;D

Thanks for looking :)


Before K-amps responded, I was going to say the guy in the upper left was taking a leak, but I like his response even better ;D
See, another two nonconformists ;)

(but then you knew that already)

As usual, the "best" answer is "it depends" ;)

Anyway, on a more serious note, it depends on what percentage of shots are going to be needing you to add on the 2x. I have a question for you. Why the non IS 70-200?

Hi,

I'm only 16 and I can't quite justify spending $2400 on the lens. I will eventually buy the IS II, but right now, I just can't.
That makes sense. I was not suggesting the IS II though.

And I think you got your answer :)

Darya a photo session in prague natural light shot with the 24-70 f2.8 L
Darya in prague by Lseriesglass, on Flickr
NICE! But then I am a fall guy for B&W... Not as much Sepia though...

What is the meaning of "Darya"? In India it means sea (or ocean)...
Thanks :-) im a black and white guy too sepia is good also :) Darya is her name from russian very nice girl studying in prague.
Interesting. Is she from the southern USSR republics? The name has a Persian origin similar to the king Darius of Persia - born about 550BC...
she stays in a town near siberia called novosibirsk :-)
Hmmm that is way north... I wouldn't be surprised if there is a connection to the persian name though...

I don't think anything about the background is meant to look realistic.
Background? What background???
