Sporgon,

I really like that shot! Nice balanced composition.

Talking about balance...how long did that goose stand on just one leg? ;D
Is he standing on one leg or walking on water!

Other than looking like something is eating his flesh off his head, that's one crazy looking stork!  And I thought Wood Storks had weird heads!  Nice one! :o

The phottix Odin's are awesome!  They will allow you to shoot your 580 and 430 in ttl off camera!  Highly recomended and priced great!  Well, compared to PW's and some others anyway!  They work like they were made just for Canon flashes and camera's... seriously, great buy, you'll love the 580! ;D

I think I've been seeing it lately for the same price as the 580Ex II, at $579...  I'd go with the new one!  Or buy two used 580 ex II's!

Krob97-my photo with the onion effect was not adjusted in photoshop or lightroom either.  I don't mind the lemon effect as my 85mm has some of this as well.  It is more that central target in the middle of the onion that I will have to decide if I can accept or not.  My onion effect looks much more prominent than the other pictures I have seen.  Other than this the lens looks great with only some mild softness at the edges till close to 2.8.  Since I will be using it wide open much of the time that does not bother me.
Gotcha!  I don't mind the lemon effect either... all in all, there's nothing terrible here.  Most folks looking at our images never seem to notice any of the slight defects that we the photogs seem to pick up instantaneously..

Seems like we can fret and fret over little abnormalities and oddities in our images and they can walk up behind you and say; "oh that's awesome!", "I love that shot".  It's kind of crazy!  My customers often seem to most like the photos that I like the least! :o

A dog's gotta do, what a dog's gotta do!  :-\
Amazing! :)
Yes, I thought it was pretty humorous!
Who put up the sign? Surely not the Fire Department!

This kind of humour picks up a dull day!
Thanks RPT!  I got a laugh out of it too!  I was worried somebody might be offended... I'm glad not!  Thanks again!

Never seen one of these before--took an hour just to get this shot as this bird is a bit peculiar.  Lands on a branch for 1-2 seconds then flys to another branch for 1-2 then hides in the scrub brush.  After an hour I began to give up.  As I walked down a steep dirt downgrade I caught one on a branch for about 5 seconds and pulled this off..his name..a Spotted Towee..where?  Modjeska Canyon..southern Cal.

  Great Job Rev!  There are a lot of quarry that seem to be difficult to capture... You were lucky to get the image you did!

<p><strong>Where will the EOS 7D fit?<br />

</strong>Some mentions about who the EOS 7D Mark II is going to be marketed too. It’s suggested the camera will be “firmly” aimed at the nature and sports market. The 10fps feature we and others have been told about is a big part of the plan. The camera will also get some technologies from the EOS-1D X, like the AF system and noise performance. While it may not have 61 focus points, the performance could be on par.</p>
<p>A different megapixel count of 21mp has also been mentioned. There’s a good chance various configurations of test cameras exist.</p>

I think one will fit snugly in my gear bag... Yes, should definitely fit nicely!  ;D

Oh well. I added it to my cart and had one second thought.

I came back and the deal expired :(

Let's wait then.
I hate it when that happens!!  That was a great deal!

5D MK III Sample Images / Re: Ultra long daytime exposures - 5D mkiii
« on: December 01, 2012, 02:48:46 PM »
Been playing around with some black glass (or film) recently.  Here are a few of my first attempts.  I can get up to 20 minute exposures in broad daylight if I push everything to its max (or should I say min), but these are all around 4-5 minutes each.  All shot with the 5D mkiii and the 14mm 2.8 L II.

I haven't had any negative feelings about images with my ef-s 17-55mm lens.  I still love the compression I get with my ef 70-200mm f/2.8 II, but when quarters are too tight, that ef-s lens hasn't failed me yet...  : :)
