Female Cheetah Cub, Serengeti, early morning light.

1Dx 200-400f/4, Shot @ 560mm f/6.3 & 1/1250th ISO800
This is an amazing image Eml... wiping the drool from my foot... Crazy nice, love the separation and the bokeh.  Great compression with your new 200-400mm... Love it!  :P

One of a pair in trees along the creek.
Those bluish, green eyes are interesting!  I can't say I've ever seen that before~  :)

Red Billed Ox Pecker.

Must be the most annoying little Crappers in the bird Kingdom, unless you have Ticks of Course.

Fantastic image Eml!

Hummingbird

200mm 2.8L+2x, iso 400, 1/3200, 5.6
Skully, don't you think it's amazing that at 1/3200 sec, it doesn't freeze their wing movement?  That's amazing to me!

That's a very cool shot  8) I like it  :) Nicely done Edward

Thanks Click, and while some were Pecking the Crap out of his Head, these were having a Party on his Back, I think Buffalos probably hate Ox Peckers.

Nice image of the little pecker heads!

Canon General / Re: fair compensation?
« on: July 11, 2013, 11:39:33 AM »
I'd take the 80 Euro and also ask for a credit line and a couple dozen calendars for you to have for your portfolio.

You're not bargaining from a position of strength. They'd like to use your picture, but if you demand too much, they can certainly find another image to use. I say that because, if they publish the calendar every year, they no doubt have regular contributors and sources for pictures.

Having the picture published and being able to show it around, even if it is only to show your kids and grandkids, will be worth much more than the 80 Euros, which will soon be gone.
+1  I'd run with that.  Be glad they've chosen to offer you compensation for one of your images, enjoy the "props" that go with it and get a dozen calendars to share with some of your family and yes, do make sure you get a credit line...

Congratulations!

EOS-M / Re: The Frenzy is Over.....
« on: July 10, 2013, 03:00:38 PM »
Thought about it but passed for now.  For me, the reason I gave it some thought is that I never (almost never), take my 5d3 to any family events like nephews birthday parties or those other "obligatory" affairs.  When I show up, everyone always asks me if I brought my camera before they even say hi!

I thought it may be more convenient to throw one of the "M's" in my pocket for just such events or to keep in the car if I go somewhere just for unexpected photo ops. 

I assume I'll pick one up sooner or later and I'm assuming the deal offered, although I didn't grab it, will be matched or exceeded by another deal on it again in the future... perhaps then~ :)

The only times I've seen this happen is when 1) my battery door was not closed completely and 2) with the battery grip installed the twist lock for the battery tray had twisted ever so slightly.  There are switches on both that will prevent a power up. 

Other than that I have shot thousands of hours with the 5D3 and never has something happened like that that couldn't be explained.

Or if you leave it unattended for too long...

No, it depends how long you left it alone... At a point, it shuts off.    If you leave it on and put it down and come look at it in the morning, it will be off, you would want it to be off.  You can set the duration in the menu...  My guess is that you left it alone just a little too long...  :)

Canon EF Zoom Lenses / Re: Canon EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM
« on: July 10, 2013, 02:18:12 PM »
Went to the hot rod show today and used the 24-105 as a walking around lens.  I added a lot vignetting in Lightroom. :)

This was at F/4.5, 55mm, ISO 100, 1/320 using the 5D3.


What a cool car Dr. Mike!

I have been using mine for some macro work. Works pretty good on the 40D (not so much on the 5D3 but I am working on that). ;D
Nice!

I love my 24-105 too.
It's on the camera (5D3) 90% of the time and probably the most versatile lens I own.
I've done entire weddings using just this lens both for stills and movies and I'm still inlove with the colour and contrast it gives.

Here's some shots of the Sydney Harbour Bridge during Sydney's Vivid Festival to show how good it is even at night.
Beautiful Benny!

African Snake Eagle, I think.

Birds aren't my usual as I like stuff with Large Teeth & Attitude, but I cant resist Eagles & Owls, Ostriches are good also, they don't move too fast.
What a crazy good image!  Must have been a fun capture!
