Starting to get back into the sunset season here in San Diego.  Shot from the tops of the Cliffs Friday evening.

Very nice ERHP.  Well done.

1dx and 300 2.8

rain isn't fun to shoot in, but it does create more interesting photos!

Rundle mountain as seen across Vermilion Lake, Banff AB. I posted this earlier but have removed the original posting and replaced it with this. I've muted the saturation, reduced sharpening a bit and done some work trying to clean up the clouds.

A suggestion: may be crop off some of the water to get the "horizon" on the 1/3rd mark. I think the clouds are more interesting than the water - otherwise I'd have suggested you to do it the other way around.

A shot from a trip to the playground today. Shot with the 200 @ f2.

Well seen, a great fun shot.
Great shot Viggo.

My first soccer match with this lens! A lot of intensity from two, ten-year-old girls!
Lovely! They even look synchronized!

Love the images I get from the 1Dx. Early morning shot into the light, it catches focus somehow. This one is a slowish shutter speed to get some movement in the wings and water.

Yes, was a good decision because the effect is great. Wonderful photo!

+1...wonderful capture
Absolutely! Fantastic! Thanks for sharing.

Man! He must be from my tribe - he eats anything! :P

@eml58 - Fantastic use! Beutiful shot... this is more proof that tech allows us to do more, but it still comes down to experience!
Thank you for sharing.
That is a picture? No no no! This is eml's new hobby - water colours.

Why are there so many artifacts there? is this the conversion to png issue?

eml, when you posted this one or one similar to it that looked different. Lovely pic! As usual.

Ouch! But very nice
Lovely! How did you shoot this? And this is play. Notice the claws are out but the pressure is only to hold. Not break skin. And they can do that in a microsecond! Notice the skin depression on the middle finger. It is play.

Well, my first cat Bambi did that to me once - held my finger in her mouth with sufficient pressure to hold and refused to let go so I went in with my mouth and held her paw with my teeth! She had this shocked look. Total disbelief. She let go of my finger. The look said "What! You did that to me? You are my dad - you cant do that!". That look was priceless. If only they could talk.

She has been gone a long time. This incident was probably 21 years back. She was my first cat. She taught me Cat. Before that I thought that I was a Dog person and so I needed to hate cats! Surprise - surprise! Things your "other" family members teach you...

Hard to resist those eyes!

Yup! Lovely shot Dustin. The trouble is they do not stay this size for long...

I did a Google search and got this link.

I am sure you can find more if you google.

A lens for birding that is better than the 100-400L and the 1.4x II. So the 200-400L but the cost is too much for me at the moment.
