I keep trying to catch the larger birds like the Jays & Acorn Woodpeckers on takeoff.  Much harder than waterfowl it seems.



Very nice shot ERHP. Well done.

Is this thread locked?

Been trying to post for several days --  no joy.
Well, you posted in it so I guess it is not locked :)

Dustin, I tried a shot similar to yours this past summer.  It does have the harsh lighting but it still works I think.
Are these redwoods? I like the star too. I have a question though: why did you not rotate it by 90 degrees?

Hi, here (after a long abstinence) a few "Watery Birds". Nothing special but I do like the Bokeh in the water.
I'm glad you've all being keeping standards up while I was busy <G>
Cheers Brian
I like the green in the water too! Lovely!

Thanks all. Have the shot that told me I should stop pestering the poor thing. (7D, ISO100, 1/1600s, F/5.6, 500mm)
As a bonus, here's a Sharp-shinned hawk. (7D, ISO100, 1/400s, F/7.1, 700mm)


Great shots Moobark. Keep posting.

Each afternoon, when I start helping Harry catch his fish dinner, these same two male Brazilian cardinals immediately show up out of nowhere for a bread handout. They will both approach quite closely if I don't give them a morsel right away. Yesterday, after they got their meal, they both took off and returned several minutes later with a dozen of their female friends who all wanted a bread handout, too. It was quite a ruckus for a few minutes, fighting over the bread crumbs I threw at my feet. ;D

Here's one...5D3, 100-400L
Wow! A congregation of cardinals! The bread must be good! ;)
Beautiful picture.

Cross Country running is in full swing, caught a good shot this weekend.  ISO 100, f2.8, 1/1600, Canon 1Dx, 70-200 f2.8 IS2 @ 145mm

I like it, and I'm curious to hear other opinions.

He is walking on air man! I like it!

I wonder how it would look if the runner was framed on the right 1/3rd...

Here is the shot with the crop moved to the right.
May be crop out the building and then the runners lead your eyes from the front all the way back round the bend. That building messes the shot :(

Lovely shot. And he is still walking on air :)


Again, blown away by what some of the other posters in this thread can do.
My work doesn't hold a candle up to some of these photos.

Here are some more of my efforts:


Just amazing B&W Images, especially like the first one, great Photography under what I'de say are extreme conditions.

So I had the good fortune to be around to see and capture this sight.  Sometimes the heavens open up and you can see the light!

I somehow missed this image the first time through RPT, glad I did a retake, very nice capture indeed!  ;)
Thanks Krob78. The scene lasted may be a minute or so and then it was gone. This is Newport Coast in the LA area looking to the ocean.

Software & Accessories / Re: Panoramas...How to have a consistent blue sky?
« on: September 30, 2013, 10:42:44 PM »
you might take a look at using "match total exposures" in Lightroom develop module, under "settings" prior to stitching...
Hmmm. This is new. Thanks. Will try it.

These days I use ICE. I used to stitch panoramas with Autostitch. Take a look at http://www.cs.bath.ac.uk/brown/autostitch/autostitch.html. The issue with Autostitch is that it is a 3 month demo. You can download it again after that time though. And it is a Windows only demo...

With the Sigma 120-400 lens, at 400mm, slightly cropped, downsized.
This is the Mahabharata flower! Indian epic (from the real India ;) )

Yup! It is a beautiful flower.
