First L for me was my 100-400L.  Fell in love with it and signed up almost immediately for my next; 70-200 f/2.8L IS II.  Still have those first two, the others seem to keep coming and keep going from my modest corral..  ;D

@Ken, have you been on the wacky backy again ? This is the 'Best Landscape' thread !

Here's one of mine of Hardraw Beck in the Yorkshire Dales. All you CR guys who can't / won't shoot at anything other than wide open have got me thinking about shallow dof landscapes !

Really exciting at this point anything is a bonus! I will be glad to see Canon innovating again!
+1  I'm having a good feeling that Canon won't let us down with the 7D MkII!  ;D

Does anyone have an example of what Canon call revolutionary?
Yes.  "Canon has unveiled its most advanced PowerShot compact camera ever – the revolutionary 14.3 Megapixel PowerShot G1 X..."  (link)

 :P

I rest my case
Not so quickly!!  It actually states it as being more than "EVOLUTIONARY" not "Revolutionary"... Therefore it's quite possibly more than an evolutionary advancement but not revolutionary.  Or for that matter it could be more than evolutionary and quite revolutionary as well...  ;)

This was the very first image I took, the day my brand new 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens arrived, back in 2011!  Needless to say, I kept the lens!  ;D
7D & 70-200mm f/2.8 II

I really like those shades of green.
Thank you Click!  I thought the shades of green were very interesting as well.  I caught this one totally unprepared, as I walked outside to look for some birds, my lens cap slipped from my pocket and as I turned to pick it up, I saw this Green Dragonfly land in a patch of thick grass right by my feet!  I just stayed my ground and took a couple snaps before he flew off!  I won a local contest with this one and it was also featured in an annual Calendar that one of our local banks produces each year.

These birds are rescues
The eagle was found shot and is now blind in one eye
Not sure of the owl's story
The handler was just wrapping up some sort of presentation in one of the wings of the Banff Springs Hotel and let me take a few hurried photos
For some reason when I look at these photos they seem sad






Very nice images Nineyards.  They do evoke emotion, I might add.  They're really nice, I like the tones and the color.  Thanks for sharing.  :)

Photography Technique / Re: Family Picture with Dogs
« on: June 12, 2014, 01:24:01 PM »
Definitely not my favorite of the day but the family loved this one... I brought them all down to the dog's level, as the dog, although quite large, still couldn't get up to their level and balance the composition real well.  Actually, remembering back a couple years when I did this one, the dog did rather well, all the standing portraits with the dog, the people failed...

Additionally, we took lots of candid images of the different family members interacting with the dog and those became very special for the family.  But as a whole "family" portrait, they chose this one, without the guys on the end being cropped in quite so tightly.  They also reneged on the Golden hour session, as one of the family members had to leave early and spoil it! 

Anyway, just submitting as an idea...  ;)

OH, and I had a 580 EXII on camera right for rim light and another 580 II on camera left, back towards me a bit, to eliminate some shadowing...

This was their back yard...
