Not such an impressive photo as is the impressiveness of the bridge.

Here is a link, because I can't resize it.

Lovely picture. How many pictures did you stitch together?

In January, there was a storytelling session at one of the schools in my city. There were a number of tellers and I had a ball taking pictures. I thought I was the only one with a camera but apparently with the ingenious use of both your thumbs and your index fingers you can make a perfectly good camera. Take a look at this image...

My first attempt at photography...started a couple of months back...crimson sunbird feeding like a hummingbird. In two days, just saw them doing this once and unfortunately didn't get the focus right.
I think that it is the shutter speed and not focus.

Software & Accessories / Re: FoCal new version is out

Does this version add anything new?

Color analyses from RAW images (see Rich's recent blog on AF differences with different colored illumination).

That's interesting, and makes sense if you think about it.  Rich has discovered a ton of information about AF systems and discovered lots of issues that affect AF.  The OEM's probably know this stuff, but we users are now finding out as well.
There are two bug fixes I am interested in. One for a crash and the other where it says can't save the configuration. I will download it next week. Apparently you need to get a new license. So did somebody hack the old one?

Harris Hawk in flight near Tucson Arizona Feb 8, 2014

wow that is unreal. but is that an antenna on the hawk? is that how you get it to fly straight at the camera, remote control?  ;)
Exactly my thoughts!  ;D

Lovely picture!

I went out with a different image in mind but the sunset I was expecting didn't materialize. 



Nice! I love the wood.

Any attempt to reduce a complex system used under diverse conditions for diverse goals to a single number is doomed to failure.
Thanks! Lovely sentence. I am going to quote your words to a colleague. He wanted me to arrive at a single data quality number after analysing tens of columns in each of about five hundred or so database tables.

Does he have an MBA, by chance?
Nope! An ordinary engineer like me ;)
What? :o ... he is just an ordinary engineer and does not even have the highly acclaimed Masters in Bull$h!tting Arts? ... how dare he! ;D
Ha! Ha! Ha!

Don, thanks for the beautifully crafted sentence. It settled matters for me.

Classic LENS CAP! failure and couple times almost dropped 7D to ground because forgotten to tighten plate in when putting it to tripod ::)
Ah! Yes! I had blocked that out in my memory. So not exactly the same way but I pressed the release lever on the tripod and forgot to hold my 5D3 before that. CRASH!!!! Luckily it hit the dirt and missed a rock by a couple of inches...
