That Lioness looks p!ssed ... great shot.

I was actually out of the vehicle taking a leak when I looked down slope and saw this Lady heading my way, with intent I'm sure. I can tell you i squeezed off pretty quick.

As soon as I got back into the vehicle she stopped and seemed confused, it's amazing how habituated these Animals get to the vehicle, in the vehicle they don't seem to see you as Food, out of the vehicle you really do become part of the Food Chain.

I grabbed a dozen Images before jumping back into the Vehicle, love that 12fps on the 1Dx.

Can you point me to this statement on Adobe's site?  I read the FAQ and terms but couldn't find it.  That would influence my decision, assuming my current LR3/CS5.5 cannot be installed on two computers (I've never tried - can they?).

Not sure where it is on the site, but I have CC Suite installed now on my MacPro & my MacBook Pro.

I resisted for some time getting into the "Monthly" business, not in favour of adobe having my Credit Card details, I finally found a reseller in Singapore (Innercom), that gave me an excellent deal for the CC full Suite with a 3 year Lock, cancel anytime, I paid the first year with a Bank Transfer.

I believe the current deal for Photographers @ $10/month represents excellent value, seems to be a 2 year lock on price, so at least for 2 years you really can't go wrong if all you want/need is PS & LR, which most of us get by on just fine. I would cancel my current deal at the end of the first year & flip to this deal, as long as I can use Pay Pal or some form of payment other than Credit Card on line, Adobes recent screw up in allowing customer details to be hacked doesn't fill me with confidence in the security measures at Adobe.

And I've got over the whole "rent software" issue, it's quite honestly where all software companies will be in 5 years.

And with the Adobe system, if you cancel out of the programme and go back to stand alone CS6/LR5, you don't loose anything, you still have your files, your RAW files, your adapted files you will need PS/LR to access, but I save everything in .TIF and to date that works for me.

Congratulations Dylan, Lovely Lens.

I suggest you get the 1.4x VIII Converter first, almost no perceptible loss in IQ on this Lens (420@f/4), the 2x although Good, is not without some IQ loss, acceptable, but not perfect, certainly not as good as the 600f/4 II @ f/5.6, but not much is.

Look forward to seeing some Images from this truly wonderful Lens when you get the time, enjoy.

Shot this Guy in the Serengeti, he was probably the only Cheetah I've found that was really easy to Focus on, still, just in case, I shot him/Her @ 1/800th, you never know with Cheetahs.

1Dx 200-400f/4, 400mm f/4.5 1/800th ISO 400

Cheetah IS version 2? ;)

Good One, could be   ;D

question...is the bald eagle viewed in a similar way in other countries around the world?

thoughts/opinions anybody?

north

I imagine it's the case, we have a slightly larger Bird called the Wedge Tailed Eagle in Australia that just isn't any where as well known as the Bald Eagle, that I imagine being due to the Bald Eagle being the "emblem" of the USA, but also because the Bald Eagle is certainly a Beautiful looking Eagle with that White head etc, the "Wedgie" is a lovely Bird also, but does loose out in the "Pretty Bird" stakes.

From my own perspective I've rarely seen a Bald Eagle while travelling in the Lower 49, seen absolutely loads while travelling in Alaska.

Awesome as usual Edward :) Today i got my new 85 1.2 :)
Congratulations. Your life will be fullfilled from this day forward! I love mine :)
Can't wait to put it to use Eldar :) it's one sexy piece of glass ;)

Hi Bornshooter, the 85f/1.2 L II was made for you, with your style of Imaging I expect we will see some amazing stuff.

Used on the 1Dx I've found the auto focus works well, not a speed King, but well, used on the 5DMK II, not so good, quite slow.

But it's sharp, sharp, sharp.

As always, great image Edward!

Still, not a bad quandary to have.
