WOW X 1000!! Awesome ROEL! This is one of the best ever! Really Awesome! I'm jealous!Some pretty awesome photos in this forum, and some pretty bad ones as well. As a recent 1DX owner I felt for a longtime my photos where not worthy enough to post in this thread. Until I made this photo of a White-tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) 4 days ago. Hope you guys like it, I know I doAwesome!

Lynx in a cold breeze and low autumn sun. There are only about 350 animals in around 60 family groups left of this beautiful animal here in Norway. One feels privileged to have seen it.Stunning and beautifully transfixing image! I feel privileged just to have seen it here! Thanks so much, great image Eldar!

Irish Sunset last nightFantastic!
Richard, I agree with Dustin, these are fabulous! I really like the first as well, very nice composition. Looking at the second, how can I not like it equally as well? It's really quite well done! I so need to get over there one of these days!Thanks Dustin. My landscape work has been almost non-existent this year, with just a handful of previous shots, so it's always good to know I haven't lost my touch.On my way back from my regular visit to the Scottish Highlands, I stopped off in the Glencoe area, this time in Kinlochleven. I finally saw the first spectacular sunset of the autumn. I've always found that sunsets seem to be much more impressive in the autumn (fall) for some reason.
I started off wide, with the 24mm f/1.4 MkII on the 5D MkIII.
Fiery Sunset over Loch Leven by Kernuak (avalonlightphotoart.co.uk), on Flickr
After waiting for the right light for half an hour and stopping to photograph something in the opposite direction, with the colours getting more intense by the minute, I finally decided "job done" and packed everythying away. I started walking back to the hotel, but looked around, only to find the colours had got even stronger. I was torn, as the filters take a long time to sort out, plus I had the 70-200 attached. In the end I couldn't resist, so just put the 70-200 on the tripod without any filters and this was the result.
Fiery Skies over Loch Leven by Kernuak (avalonlightphotoart.co.uk), on Flickr
As I was finally walking back to the hotel, I passed a family literally running in the opposite direction, only to hear the little girl say "Mummy, it looks like the end of the road is on fire".
Those are both fabulous shots. The first one has a great lead in with the little stream, and the compression of the color layers on the second one is equally fabulous!
Couldn't agree more, both sets! I do especially like the perspective and composition of the second one in this second set Ron. Really, really nice!This is a view from West Mountain, on the southern edge of Utah Lake near Provo, UT
Just got back from commenting and faving some of these. Awesome work, Ron.
+1 and thanks for the explanation and view! Definitely helps me understand that better.Could be but it sure seems like something a FW update could alter... I'd like the center red focus in all cases pretty much, not just AI Servo. It's just that I shoot there so much!I'd still like a RED focus point in AI Servo!+1 on this, too, but I'm guessing there is a hardware limitation that prevented them from including it in the next-to-last firmware update.
There might be a technical limitation. People who used previous 1-series bodies are used to red AF points. Like other cameras that don't have the transmissive LCD, the AF points are etched into the focus screen, and that makes them easy to illuminate from an angle which avoids significant wide-field reflection. On cameras with a transmissive LCD, there are no etched grooves to 'side-light', but rather the flat surface of the LCD has to be illuminated, and that's a lot less specific. The red light from the illuminator reflects off the surface of the transmissive LCD, and some of it reaches the metering sensor. You can see that here:
That's not a problem for still shooting, but for servo shooting, the near-continuous metering would be impacted by the illumination for the LCD. The solution for the 1D X is intermittent (blinking) illumination of the AF points in servo mode, and although that sounds like it could be implemented on the 5DIII, it's possible that they tweaked the interpretation from the metering sensor to ignore that red light, which might be possible with the RGB metering sensor of the 1D X but not possible with the less distinguishing metering sensor of the 5DIII.
Lots of 'mights' there, and I suppose it's equally likely that Canon simply decided not to add that feature to the 5DIII, just as they decided not to add clean HDMI out to the 1D X.

THanks ALan and Click.Mmm, Mmm, that's a beautiful image Dolina!

Nice reflection Steven! The hawks were pretty cool too.What a beautifully sharp image ERHP and very nice contrast... Definitely a "feel good" image!
Not a lot of 'new' happening this last weekend but after my 60 hour week I finally got around to going through Sunday's shots and the posing Western Scrub Jay.
Now if only I could have gotten this close to the fairly rare(for SoCal) Lewis's Woodpecker I found.
Every once in a while one needs to change perspective. I've been concentrating on raptors all fall. Today, one of my favorite raptor hunting grounds was a total bust. So, I wound up waiting by the bank of a stream for nearly an hour until the local songbird population decided to ignore me. I was rewarded with this shot of a Song Sparrow.Very nice Steven, especially with that challenging lighting!

Absolutely lovely my friend! Very nice Portrait indeed!
