Hi guys,

Many thanks for the excellent photos!

And some of mine... one from Romania, the Retezat Mountains, one from Slovakia and two from Austria.

Well done. I like #1 the best...great water reflection. :)

Great shots everyone and a well deserved front page to you Edward.

November is not exactly the most inspirational time of the year where I live, but went for a walk this morning. Taking picture of flowing water is in my view quite difficult. Either you use a very fast shutter speed to freeze the water or you allow the water to smooth out, with a slower shutter speed. But if you let it smooth too much, then there is no life left. So I tried to balance that.

So cool :) Great job! 8)

I have about 10,000 geese in the bay behind the house! They are LOUD!!!

The second shot is a 7 picture panorama and shows about 5 percent of the total flock....
WOW! ... even the 5% looks like a lot ... that must be LOUD! ... nice pic.

Ear plugs, anyone? ;D

Sorry...the period at the end got included in the link for some reason. Drop the period, and it should work.

Hmm, but this sounds kind of like cheating!? ;)

Once you see the results, you won't think that. ;D

It is no more cheating than hiring a model for a studio shoot..... and the best thing is that chickadees will work for peanuts :)

LOL ;D  Very nice photo. Do they sign a release? ;)

Last summer rented the 600 f/4 II for a weekend to capture kingfishers at the "Oostvaardersplassen" in The Netherlands. I got quite lucky.

5D3, 600 f/4 L II + 1.4x III, f/5.6, 1/400, ISO 1250. I did not use a tripod but was sitting on my knees with a fallen tree as support. The image is uncropped. The amount of detail that this lens can resolve (look at the feathers and water droplets at full res) is amazing.

Beautiful photo. So colorful and razor sharp! Creamy background. Well done. :)

Got this lens on loan from CPS - day 1 1st impressions:  after you get used to the massive and awkwardness of this lens, its most impressive.  I opted to lug it around without anything other than the camera strap and the lens strap.  I had a 3/8" threaded handle from a ZOOM H4N hand held 4 track recorder (looks like a cone) that I mounted in the female threaded foot.  I wouldn't dare hoist the lens up with my left hand by that cone shaped handle, but with the assistance of my right hand under the lens and left on the vertical handle it made it fairly easy to hand maneuver and obtain birding photos.

Here's a few all handheld on IS Mode 1 of 3, Manual, AF, faithful mode at 1/500, F4.5 or 6.3 with Auto ISO which averaged at 1000 across these 3 photos.  The AF was on Expansion or Zone AF with AI Servo enabled.
