I caught sight of these leaves as I was driving through Cookham towards the station, and had to stop:

I thought they looked pretty darned magnificent. Don't know if I have done them justice.

Its a bit early to wish you a happy high ISO Christmas, but the shops are determined! Actually, the first shot had nothing Christmassy about it, apart from the feel...

Street & City / London Omnibus

Puts me in mind of Flanders & Swann: The big six-wheeler scarlet-painted London transport diesel-engined 97-horsepower omnibus. Except they were talking about the older version and I suspect the engine is a little more powerful now!

Enjoy!

Lenses / 70-300L or 100-400L
« on: October 09, 2012, 10:14:18 AM »
I shoot with both a 7D and a 5DMkiii. I currently have a 70-300mm f4.5 - 5.6 DO IS USM, and am wondering if I should upgrade it to a 70-300mm f4.0 - 5.6 L IS USM or the 100 - 400mm. I have found the current lens a little soft on both bodies, certainly when compared to my 24-105L and even my 15-85 EFS.

The 100-400 has the attraction of an extra 100mm, but then it is a much older lens. My main use for this historically has been bird photography, and therefore it is better on the 7D. Can anyone comment?

Thanks

The 18.12 from Paddington:

The sun through the windowed arch at the end of the platform was glorious.

EXIF: 5Dmkiii, 24 - 105mm at 105mm, 1/30 sec, f9.0, ISO1000.

Also at Paddington, but in the underground:

EXIF: 5Dmkiii, 24 - 105mm at 24mm, 1/5 sec, f22.0, ISO5000.

I guess I should probably have opened the aperture up a bit, but you don't have long to think as the train moves off and you have a connection upstairs...

Can anyone tell me what this is? It sunned itself for long enough for a couple of shots. It looks like it has been in the wars:
