Love the contrast in this shot. The heron is beautifully detailed and colored.
To quote Elvis..."thank you...thank you very much"      ;)
Your stuff is quite nice...have you played with different PP?

Abject futility is defined as...comparing camera/lens quality based on internet images.
 To expand a little, assuming normal print size and competent cannot discern camera/lens brand from a print.

Is your ego that shallow that you concern yourself with comments like "Gee, your camera sure does take good pictures".  A little analysis might do wonders for that shallow ego.      ::)

Swans are very beautiful, but quite available. So the challenge to shoot images that stand out is not an easy one.
Thanks for responding Elder...will heed your words.     ;)

I haven't quite decided on the PP with these images...what say you all?


I've used a Ds3 for years, from BIF to macro work, and have yet to find it lacking in any scenario.  The only caveat I would add is that it's "low light" is somewhat less than stellar.
BUY the glass my friend!      ;)

We have a rather nice local park that is quite popular with the local Pros, weddings/portraits,...I've never seen any of them not have a 70-200 mounted on their body.        ;)

Is this a need or want scenario...I'm asking because I'm in the same boat, with me it's a want more than need.
 If the new 7D has 24 MP, I'll buy it as an adjunct, otherwise wait on the big MP one...if I live that long.       ;D

Macro / Fuzzy thing

Handheld 180 macro mounted on a 1Ds3 and "stacked" in CS6.

Another series...

We happen to live near a very photogenic park four years I have never seen a 70-200 f/2.8 not being used for portrait/wedding work.

I fail to understand why anyone who is not a professional would even own a is not cost effective.
What are ya gonna do with a plethora of prints...ya only have so much wall space...shoe box in the closet like your grandmother did?
There are a myriad of on-line printing companies that usually cough out better results, at a far cheaper price in the long term, than you could hope for.
