Work in progress.  Green tree boa - working on a print and down rez it.  Sharpening set for a print, not a screen/web.  In other words, I know it over sharpened.
Trust in me; just in me...
:)

I love the colour. Fabulous!

Thanks - I will be submitting this in competition soon.  "Trust in Me" or similar is an interesting title
I always liked Jungle Book and would see it again at the drop of a hat!

Gary, nice capture with the Water Frozen, Yea, your right, looking through that viewfinder can get you into all sorts of trouble, I'm often surprised when I look up to see how quickly I seemed to get into the Crap.

Some more Leopards, Yawn.

The Stare: 1Dx 300f/2.8 V2, shot @ f8 & 1/1250th ISO800

Blending In: 1Dx 300f/2.8 V2, Shot @ f/2.8 & 1/8000th ISO800
Ok, I am naming this guy "Three fingers". Don't look for the paws. It is the right ear...

It's in the lens corrections panel under Basic
Got it. Thanks. I was looking in the menus...

It's curious why, if they're updating bodies in their Service Centers with this new firmware, they haven't already posted it on their website. I have a big shoot coming up this week, and would have liked to run the camera through its paces with this new code. Oh well.
A very valid point. One can hand off a Beta, but you would not update somebody's software (or firmware) without their consent. In fact if a company updated somebody's software without their consent even if it was released, they could be sued...

That said, I am sure there are new versions are in the wild. There has to be a larger group doing a Beta test before release. If they shifted the date till the end of this month, there has to be a reason to re-validate the working of a fix (or three).

Wondering why you say this. Who would be upset to have a newer/better firmware?
And how are you and your lovely wife?
I'll PM you. Erica and I were talking about you yesterday.

In the software world "newer" is not always "better".

I guess the next time I leave my camera with Canon I will read the fine print carefully :)

Hi RPT/Infared, appreciate the feedback, I use two Seacam 150 Strobes for underwater macro, and I have a pair of 600EX-Rt's with the ST-E3 unit which worked great in Africa, I tried some Macro in Africa but conditions were not always conducive to taking your time (Fear factor, always looking over your shoulder for something with Big Teeth & Serial Killer Instincts), so I think the MT-24EX set up might allow a better opportunity to "freeze" the shot etc, anyway, will buy & let you know the results at a later date, thanks for replying.

Attached one of my Underwater Macro shots, 5DMK II 100f/2.8 L IS, SHot @ f/25 & 1/125th ISO200

Denise Pygmy Sea Horse, approximately 5mm-8mm from Nose to end of Tail, quite a recent discovery, 15 years ago we didn't know these Guys existed.
Lovely!

Man! You are SO COOL!

And we have another bird whisperer!

Perhaps the ones that went in for service and came back with 1.2.1 had an issue resolved with that firmware.

In the US of A? I would not even try that in India...

Thanks!

Is was a relay race and her team did not.  However, she won her leg of the 3-legged race!
Cool! A three legged race is fun! Both to participate in and to watch. My boss and I ran one six or so years back (the last three legged race I have run) and won! It surprised us both. It was a matter of "marching to a beat". The rest of the competition was young. Put another way, I bring up the average age in the company ;)
So while most were in a hurry and falling down, we the "slow and steady" and managed to complete the course with just one mishap.

I agree. The third shot is framed perfectly. I would have brought up the shadows more in that second one, or was it shot with a Canon :). Nice shots guys.
:)
Asking for trouble are you?

I'm guessing you on the boat?  I really like the first one... the 2nd one is a little too dark for me and I dare to say it is underexposed, and the last one, has a composition issue.  The first two are not entirely following the rule of thirds, but it is close.  The last one... the subject is too in the middle. 

Cool shots... and I'm not sure if that is what you were asking, but that would be my feedback.
I liked the first and the third. The third one for the reflection. You can just see the wake at the bottom right of the picture. I thought the third one was a powerful shot.
