Software & Accessories / Re: i folded and bought CC :(

If I have a down year, financially, or don't like the direction their taking the product, I don't want to have to pay ransom to keep using the software I've been paying for all along. That's too much risk for me. I'm staying with CS6 and stand-alone LR for just this reason, so they're not getting any more money from me whereas I'd be willing to pay for a maintenance plan.

Ditto !

Wedding Photographer - ceremony was on the beach.

Regular beach-goers cheered when the couple took their vows. I was on the beach looking for birds, got this with a 100-400mm at 400mm ( I was interested in what gear she was using.)

Had some fun watching a juvenile Belted Kingfisher catch its fill yesterday.



Wonderful action shot ! Belted kingfishers are tough to capture on the wing. Great clarity, a super pict.

Great Blue Heron , face to face. Fun to see front markings in "3D".

 I have lots of GBH picts but never with this interesting plumage view. It is semi sharp when you look at it full screen. My 60D's modest tracking ability was lucky to get this shot. Hmm, time to put aside some cash for a 7D m2 !

You can actually photograph freedom!

Wonderful series, exotic birds, captured with great detail.
I would be interested in lens and camera, used.

Thanks

Reviews / Re: Hands on preview of Sigma 150-600S

In regard to weight, the 600mm Canon prime weighs in at a hefty 8.5 pounds, so 6.3 pounds for the Sigma does not seem all that bad.
( I am lifting a 15 pound barbell with my left hand as I type this )
