Landscape / Re: Sunset landscape
« on: September 30, 2013, 09:51:36 PM »
Originally posted this as another thread as a joke with another member, but it makes an interesting 'sunset landscape'.

This is Drax Power Station in Yorkshire, England and is coal fired. It has been sited by the Norwegians as responsible for the acid rain falling in Norway. I believe they are using a cleaner fuel now.
I think that it's interesting that it is within eye-shot of the other power station deeper into the depth of field!

5d Mk III, 70-200 2.8L II @200mm, ISO 400, 1/1000@f/2.8. Very tight crop.  This lens never ceases to amaze me!
Beautiful Portrait Nonac!

Edward, these images are superb!  Thanks so much for taking the time to share, they're quite inspiring!  Both the Polar Bear and the cat...  :)

Cool Muscovy Duck shots!  Someone let a 'semi domesticated' one go at one of the local lakes. 

Nice Waxwing, Jack! 

Here is a Western Bluebird that took a moment to pose for me.


Sweet!  You nailed this one ERHP!  ;D

Thanks Serendipidy, I only use DPP and checking I see a little sharpening and I've bumped the NR from default 6 to 8 out of 20 - really not much.  As stated I find the shot disappointing becasue of what it might have been rather than knocking ISO 10K.  I guess it comes down to basically, is the composition worthy enough to accept the grain and lack of sharpness??

Here's one in the sequence where it is totally untouched and I see the ISO was up to 12.8K, and it shows!

Jack
Jack, I'm with Click and others, it's a lovely image.  Do you think you may have reduced your shutter speed to perhaps 1/250th and perhaps not had to hit the 10k iso range?

Several days ago, my neighbor across the canal built a wooden perch over the water for Harry. He likes it and is very good from that vantage point. Some from this afternoon. 5D3, 100-400L @400mm.
The perch is a great idea!  Looks like he likes it for sure... the little fish doesn't seem to care for it though!  Nice job Serendipidy!   ;D

I wish the BCN herons around my area were half as tame as Harry there. Nice pictures.

Here's a young Red-tailed hawk. (7D, ISO800, 1/2000s, 500mm, F/4.5)
Nice one Moobark!

Lovely one Jack. Well done.
Indeed, quite nice!

I seem to be doing the opposite of everyone else on this thread (which probably means I'm missing something).

I used back button focus on my t2i/550d for everything. I would use the center point, and the focus and recompose. Like most others, this worked pretty well for me, except for issues with nobody else being able to use my camera,


I would love to hear from others on this, with so many others in this thread using back button focus on 5d3/1dx I feel like I must be missing something.

Switch your camera to green box mode before handing over. AF goes back to default as do most other things.

Indeed, I actually like that issue!  I hate to hand my camera over to anyone.  Well, maybe with the exception of my assistant but I watch her carefully too! 

Agreed though, if turning it over to someone else, just put it in that green box mode...  ;)

BIF!  :)
Butterfly in Flight!
I've made a number of (unsuccessful) attempts at photographing dragonflies in flight, but never butterflies for some reason. I can't imagine they're much easier, especially timing-wise. You've caught the wings just about right I think.
Thanks Richard, I've finally got the much sought after Dragonfly in flight too!!  Just got them a couple of days ago, I'll be posting soon. 

As for the BIF Butterfly, it's been trying to get such a capture as well, certainly not as easy as a Bald Eagle with a 6 foot wingspan, floating across the heavens!  I only got two butterflies in flight so far and just one dragonfly, but I got him several times, I'm looking forward to getting them off my CF card and processing... Thanks again!
That's 3 more than I've got, I'll look forward to the dragonflies. I've missed out on the wildlife this year, due to the stresses of work, so I must make the most of the autumn visitors.
Indeed and I'm sure you'll make good of those Autumn visitors!  Next year is not too far off, so perhaps the next crop of wildlife will prove itself a great subject given your stressful work situation lets up a bit!   :-\
