If budget and wide-angle is the concern, I can recommend the 28-135.  This is what I used for 70% of my pictures. Otherwise, go with the 70-200.

Thanks for sharing. Makes me want to take a trip although maybe I'll wait until summertime or global warming.  ;)

Niteclicks, atosk and erax7, those are nice also!  Eastwind, good job on the enhanced photo.

I appreciate the comment although I didn't post any photo in this thread. Unless I am misunderstanding. Keep em coming, I'm going to take a look to the west tonight and see if I can spot anything.

love this shot. nicely done!

How do I post an image? otherwise - here is my flickr image of comet panstarrs - taken with the canon 6D 200mm F4 ISO 6400 5s (normally would shoot 3s at this focal length) about one hour after sunset in Perth Western Australia http://www.flickr.com/photos/59977949@N04/8525459685/#

Not to oversimplify the situation, and definitely not the most scientific. You could put masking tape (or your adhesive strip of choice) over the rear display and keep everything in between the top and bottom sections.

Canon General / Re: Best Lightroom 4 Book ?

I've tuned in to many of the X-Rite webinars. Yes, I know it is not a book. They do have great information in them and you can watch the tools in action.

EOS Bodies / Re: DSLR & Lens Coming on January 15, 2013? [CR1]

I was just wondering the same. Still the 15th for me. Anyone with historical knowledge on the timing of when announcements are usually made?

I wouldn't be first in line to purchase any new product. I like all the updates (firmware, etc) to be made then I can decide if it's right for me.

@Kernuak. Yes it is a pigeon. The wood it is perched on top of is a very old, weathered telephone pole. From there I saw him fly off to a larger pine tree if that helps.


Not sure if I've ever shared this one with the group here. I also realize that it's not a hawk after educating myself. I shot this in northern New Jersey. Can anyone ID it?

edit: had trouble with the insert tool the first few times


Is that a pigeon it's feasting on? That would help to size it. It's definitely a falcon, but I'm not sure it is quite big enough for a peregrine, plus I'm not familiar with North American distribution. The hood doesn't look as distinct as normal, but it could be a juvenile bird or it could be the angle.

Portrait / Re: Need some advice- shooting at Staples Center
« on: December 20, 2012, 07:21:52 AM »
That's awesome. Did that include free tickets to a game?

An interesting post I read a while back when the Brooklyn nets were getting their new facility built.  They used the same lighting technique as the Staples Center.

I love the wildlife shots from you! I'm hoping there was something between you and this big cat? (a car at least?)

stay safe!  :)
