My efforts, not quite up to the quality of some of the earlier posts.






That third one is very nice Stephen! :)

Hey guys,

It's been a while I've been on here, but I never posted.

Anyhow, here my first post.

Have a great day!
Welcome to the forum Max!  Excellent images!  Is that some type of Kestrel or another type of Falcon?

My best Hummingbird of this season...


Colibri by Omar H, on Flickr


Nice BIF capture of a beautiful hummer. Looks like a plane banking.
Awesome image!  You're right Serendipidy, he looks like he's banking, zeroing in on a target!  Target lock on!

The night the Blue Rhino Propane Plant began blowing up!  Sounded like we were being bombed with all those little LP tanks blowing up for a couple of hours! :-X

Hey,

I post here very rarely, but thought I'd share a recent shot of one of my favourite subjects. Location Kuusamo, Finland. Taken with the 5d mk 3 and the Tokina 11-16 wide angle which works fine at 16mm on full frame. Well the corners get soft, but I'm not a pixel peeping kinda person.



The Aurora season is starting strong, more on my fb- photoblog https://www.facebook.com/Julkoske :)

Awesome!!!
Indeed!  Quite Awesome!

Per the CPS Terms & Conditions (http://www.cps.act.cusa.canon.com/sys/attachments/terms_conditions_revised_2012.pdf):
"Applicant must be a full-time self-employed individual or an employee of a professional imaging business who plays a direct role in the creation of moving or still images."


So I call myself a self-employed photographer and create still images. Oh yea, and I don't currently get paid for my work because I'm "an artist". I don't think they care all that much, as long as I don't obviously abuse any bit of the program.


Yeah, that would work.  I can also rationalize that I am an employee of a professional imaging business for which I create still images (never mind that I'm using Zeiss cameras to do that!). 

But mostly it's that I haven't needed it.  I can clean my own sensor (and Canon just saved me the trouble with a free clean when I took it in for the lubrication recall).  OTOH, taking it in made me realize that it's pretty easy for me to do that a few times per year (I'm in NJ for business pretty often, and the Jamesburg service center is just a 20 minute drive from where I often need to be).  The real advantage for me would be if I need a repair, and they just cut that incentive by 33%.

Guess I better get my repairs in before 4th quarter gets here!

Check out the carry speed as well.

Having spent far too much on alternatives, my recent choice of CarrySpeed is in the "at last...." category.
This is very evolved, well thought out and neatly executed kit. http://carryspeed.com/

I have: 
FS-Pro for heavy stuff = 1D4 body & 70-200 http://straps.carryspeed.com/ProductsView-1.html
Extreme for lighter stuff = 5D3 body & 24-70 II http://straps.carryspeed.com/ProductsView-3.html
Double Pro II for events work http://straps.carryspeed.com/ProductsView-7.html

I also use the SpiderPro system which is great for some projects, and there is a distinct advantage that the pins from SpiderPro and CarrySpeed are 100% compatible/interchangable. http://www.spiderholster.com/

Agreed, I have two CarrySpeeds now and love them both.  I had a BR but like the Carryspeed much better.  I love the safety strap when I'm walking a lot in between shots or hiking.  It keeps the camera close and stops it from moving around and bumping into things while I hike between shots... It's a great system! :)
