when I saw this, I instantly knew, that I had to take a pic in b&w.
I know what you mean. Great pic :)

Recently took a trip to San Francisco. Took lots of photos with my 5D3. Also, just got a Flickr account. I will try to post some using my Flickr. I hope this works. Here are some hummingbird shots.
Beaut pics serendipidy. Tack sharp.
What lens?

serendipidy did you use artificial light with your humming bird shots?
And that was my next question :)

While you took the pic in San Francisco I can't help but think the type of red flower is a eucalyptus :)

Does this well also, very versatile Lens.

Shot Komodo National Park Indonesia
Awesome explosion of color.  This lens has been in my bag the second longest of my current collection, and won't be going anywhere for the foreseeable future.
+1. Love the pic, and yes, this lens is one of my most used. Always in the bag these days :)

Okay, sunset take 2. I've removed the red flare. Thanks for the suggestion Krob78  :)

Freycinet Peninsula, Tasmania.
Staying at the Freycinet Lodge, I happened to be in the right spot at the right time :)
5D3 with 100mm L Macro.


Beautiful!

What is the red spot toward the bottom left, in the water?
Thanks Krob78. The red spot is flare from the lens. It could be deemed a distraction, and I could remove it, but I tend to do little to my images in PP other than a little tweaking with the contrast, saturation, NR and sharpening.
 

Yes, I thought as much.  It's a lovely image.  I'd remove it.  It's almost like removing dust in this case, I don't think it brings anything to the image but as you mentioned, it's a bit distracting in this particular case...

Just my thought anyway, no offense I hope...  ;)
I appreciate the feedback. You have got me thinking now. I might have a go at removing it. I was in a bit of a rush when dealing with the images (I've just got back from a weeks holiday at Tasmania). Soooo many images to take, soooo little time :)

Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake, Tasmania. The weather behaved itself, as it normally rains 250 days of the year ;)
5D3 with 40mm pancake lens. This is a superb lens for landscapes, IMHO.

As the summer comes on, the flying ants (termites) are out in force during the evenings. This one was snared by a jumping spider.

Welcome Swallow in flight - Bicheno, Tasmania.
Made a little easier by a strong southerly blowing across the beach. The Swallows would hover a little before speeding off :)

Eastern Spinebill in flight - Freycinet Peninsula.
A few of them were hanging around bushes next to the cabin.

Olive Backed Oriole. A migratory bird that turns up in our area. The nest they build is a hanging basket style, woven from the bark of the Red Stringy Bark, a gum tree which is the main type of tree in our area.

Welcome Swallow. 200 shots later....
I managed to get 2-3 good ones, but, they are a challenge. The tricky bit is trying to get the 5D3 to keep up with the focus. Or, more to the point, trying to learn how to track an object that moves at random. Sometimes it works :)

I´m impressed. I have tried myself, but never succeeded.
Thanks Eldar and ERHP. At times, the lens was grinding away, trying to work the IS and focus, as I attempted to track these guys. I tried the same a week earlier, but only had out of focus results. This time, I tweaked the AF system (pretty much took one of the Cases listed under AF setup and up'ed the sensitivity to the max on all 3 options - Tracking, Accel/decel, AF pt switching). While that gave me a better pickup rate, it also meant a better chance of loosing focus. I suspect the 1DX would be a better choice for this sort of thing.
