first time shooting snowboarders....only shot for 15 minutes(i'll go back when it isn't -20 F wind chill) but came away with plenty of keepers.

these kids go flying through the air doing flips and 360's....great fun for a photographer. (and plenty of light with a natural reflector underneath them - snow)

1dx and 300 2.8IS

Excellent pictures. I am sure it was fun. No chance of that here in western India.  :)

6 pictures. It's my first attempt in panorama shooting. I made a mistake because I shoot at 28 mm instead of 24 (the widest possible). Perhaps, the bridge would stay more straight if I took the pictures at 24 and then crop to this size.
Wow! First attempt! Fantastic!

6 pictures! I somehow thought you would have taken more. Was it 6 portraits or two rows of 3 landscapes?

It's made from 6 portraits. As I said, it's my first try and I really didnt know how to do it. I have to read some tutorials about panoramas. In PS i select option "cylindrical" for stitching.  Maybe some other option would do a better job.
Thanks. Excellent first effort. I don't have PS so can't help you on that. The other gurus can chime in. I used to use Autostitch before but now I use Microsoft Ice.

Good to see your pictures again! I kind of had that expression yesterday after brunch (minus the blood). We went out to celebrate our daughter's first job and I pigged out :P

Yes they are.  ;) I recall his bounding mountain lion and his eagles.

Good to see your pictures again Gary!

Because all you do is take. You never show them to me! ;)

The leopard seems a bit pissed off. The lion cub's expression looks great.

85 L II. Couldn't decide if I wanted the the two bottom elements there or not, but waited a while for them to drift in, so I'll leave them there, lol.

To look at this picture is very relaxing. Nice composition. Well done Viggo.

I guess it will look good in B&W too.

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.
