6D Sample Images / Re: Anything shot with a 6D
« on: November 12, 2013, 01:10:36 AM »
Hello Everyone!

I have been following CR for over 1 year now and never really had the courage to post my pictures...until now.  I'm not a professional, just someone who really enjoys taking pictures on their spare time.  I picked up my first FF DSLR, the Canon EOS 6D in March 2013 with the 24~105mm kit lens. I also have the 100mm F2.8L IS Macro.  Additional gear includes 430EXII Canon Speedlite and a remote trigger.  My previous cameras were all point-and-shoot and super zooms (Canon SX1IS) so this is quite a step up for me.  I was really frustrated with the quality of night (or low light) shots the p&s gave, so I made the jump directly to FF.

The pictures posted in this site are really amazing and I thought I should share some of mine to get some feedback and to improve my skills.

Please go to my Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/31505768@N08/sets

I would love to hear your feedback, good or bad (as long as it is constructive).  I also understand this can be very subjective.  I hope you will enjoy them.

Thank you.

Hi Thomas,

Welcome to CR. I am a hobbyist too and have been here about a year. It's a great place to share and learn.
I looked at all your Flickr photos. They are really really good. I have been to London, Paris and Germany and I have to say, those shots are fantastic! Hope to see more in the future.

A little different pose.

Beautiful capture, Jack. Nice creamy bokeh complements the green iridescence of his back. Looks like he's really happy about something.

I rarely post here, although I do look a lot, some really great Images in the thread by a lot of good photographers.

My general rule is if it doesn't have teeth and attitude i pass it by, but from time to time something grabs my attention.

Haven't a clue what this Bird is called, but the colour attracted me.

1Dx 200-400f/4

Masai Mara Kenya.

Beautiful shot of an interesting bird. I think it might be a Hadada Ibis.

Does this well also, very versatile Lens.

Shot Komodo National Park Indonesia
If the diving season were a bit longer up here, and I were a few years younger, I think I´d start diving. Beautiful fish and incredible colors!

+1...love your underwater photos, eml58. Hope to see more. :)

Tawny Frogmouth on nest. Not a true owl, but a member of the Nightjar family of birds. A difficult one to spot as they blend in with the bark of the tree. Unfortunately, we found the body of a dead chick, on the ground below this nest. Hopefully, they have a second chick under this adult.
5D3 with 300mm f4 + 1.4x TC.


I've never seen this bird, either. Thanks for posting it. I can see how it could easily be missed.

Beautiful shot, Click. I love everything about it. Sharp, nice colors, well composed, and great water ripples.

Native grass flower, Kangaroo grass. Not really noticeable, unless you get up close. Most folk see grass as just....grass.
5D3 with 100mm L Macro


Very nice! Never knew grass could be so beautiful.

5D3 + 70-200 II - the first time I took to birds with this lens.

Bah ... I think I'm in trouble now. The IQ of the 100-400 almost suddenly feels like crap. Need to save up for a new 300mm f/2.8 II.

Beautiful photo, J.R. What bird is that?
Yes, that combo is nice. Like you, I wish for more reach. I dream of the 600mm and then wake up ;D

Just flipping back over stuff I shot in the summer.  For this one maybe we should have a new thread, "Ugliest Birds" or "Birds Only a Mother Could Love" or "Ugly as Sin Birds".  But that might offend our bird friends and get us in trouble with the Birds Rights Commission!  :)

6D 300 X2  2000th F5.6  ISO 2000   shutter speed - seems I'm always worried there will be movement or flight that I won't catch.

Nice shot, Jack...but you're right about not being the most attractive bird in the forest ;)

How about some pretty in pink flamingoes from the SF zoo?
