These might have helped. ;D

That just might have helped.

Here's another - this is from the Roman ruins at Beit She'an in Israel:



Beautiful!

ISO 6400 (which is truly nothing on the 6D), shot with only ambient light in a very, very dim olive press room where the donkey was working.  Nazareth, Israel.



Wow, I love it Dustin.  Great image...

I find kestrels to be almost impossible to photograph.  99x out of a hundred they fly long before I can set up to take a picture.  Yesterday I was out with a friend photographing hawks.  It was late in the day -- just about sunset -- when we saw this kestrel fly up to a wire with a mouse in its talons.  My friend was driving and he pulled to a stop almost underneath the bird.  The bird was plainly reluctant to fly and, perhaps, surrender its dinner and so, instead of flying it gobbled the entire mouse down, head first.  I took these photos out of the passenger side window of the car, with a 5Diii and a 400DO.  The ISO was 640, and it was set to 1/1000 at f6.3.

Thanks Steven, my findings exactly!  It's particularly frustrating as I want to get a lot more of them than I have... Most of mine are static shots too, not bif... They are fast and super skittish!  Thanks again!

Here's my most frightening landscape photo.  I hiked several miles in the dark only to end up surrounded by a bunch of alligators in the peak of mating season.  I sat there in the dark listening to their grunts all around me seemingly feet away until the sun finally came up with this amazing sunrise.  Fortunately the gators seemed far more interested in each other than me that morning.


Excellent Sunrise!  :)

Awesome. Beautiful sunrise.  8) Well done.
Thank again for the nice comment and here's one of my reptilian buddies from that morning and are a couple more sunrise shots:






Hey Mack, what county you in?  I'm over in Lake County...

Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo. As I arrived home this evening, 3 of them flew up to a nearby tree. I realised that it was 2 parents and a young one (the young one makes a constant calling sound). One of the parents had a cone from a Banksia tree (located in my front garden). They were stripping the cone for the seeds (much like a pine cone). This one, a parent, patiently sat in a tree, as I raced inside to collect the camera and tripod. 2min after this pic, they flew off to a neighbors Hakea bush to continue feeding :)

I'm tentatively calling this one "Mouse performing endoscopy on American Kestrel, Part I."
Nice one Steven!  Such a hard capture with these little guys!  Did you grab this one with your 400mm?  I find that the Kestrels are flighty and not real tolerant of company!   :)

That second image, he could just be the Gene Simmons version of Kestrels!

I used http://eoscount.com/ and had no issues.  I think they charge like $1.99 or something but it worked perfectly with my 7D.  :)

A lot prettier than my last Post on this thread, it's a wonderful experience to shoot these Wild Dogs anywhere in the wild, I wasn't expecting them in Tanzania, and I certainly didn't expect to photograph them right on Sunset, the colouring of these Guys is about perfect at anytime, but with sunrise/sunset, just Beautiful.

1Dx 200-400f/4, Shot @ 526mm f/5.6 & 1/320th ISO640
Beautiful Edward!  Thank you!

Very nice Ken. How many exposures did you use for this shot?

I like it too.  8)

Thank you!  I used 3 exposures Click.  I can't remember for sure if I went 1/3 per exposure or 2/3rds... but I think it was 2/3rds... I just recently started exploring the "in camera" hdr effect.  It's a bit limiting but works rather nicely in most instances so far... I don't think it's as good as taking the images to an editor and applying 3-5 exposures but it's pretty impressive for "in camera" I think...
