Nice reflection Steven!  The hawks were pretty cool too.

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.
What a beautifully sharp image ERHP and very nice contrast... Definitely a "feel good" image!

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.

5Diii, 400 DO, ISO 800, f6.3 @ 1/320, hand held.
Very nice Steven, especially with that challenging lighting!

Sharing one of my most recent sunset shots, too. I applied 1 degree of tilt downwards to alter the plane of focus and another 3 degrees shift to straighten the terminal structures on the horizon.  :)

Sunrise shining onto low cloud at Seathwaite Bridge, Borrowdale in the English Lake District.

5D, 24-105 @24mm
Nice one Sporgon!  That little 24-105mm does have a way of pulling out the subtle colors!

Thanks Ken. You're quite right about the colour of the 24-105. ( The 24-70 f4 IS is the same ). There is no photoshop in that image, it is entirely processed from the RAW in DPP, a program which having ignored for years I'm now beginning to have some respect for  - within the limits of what it can do of course.
Agreed, I don't use it as much as I used to either.  I do update it with each new SW update they have and it slowly gets better and better... it's consistently reliable if nothing else!

I was wondering too, if you could tell me where the "English Lake District" is?  Please don't say England!  ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: EOS 5D Mark III Firmware 1.2.3 Available

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.
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!
