If I were any better on photoshop, I'd clean the background and especially myself out from the mirror glasses :)

Wasn't really intentional, and not that much bokeh anyway.

I have Sigma 14/2.8

Can't decide if I like or hate it. My friend has one too and he loves it.

For me I don't like IQ below F8, so normal landscape it's fine as you shoot higher anyway. Also it has terrible mustache distortion, and I haven't found correction file to fix it in post. I hear you can make it yourself but I don't know how. This is shooting with FF, both problems are less when using crop.

I might sell this and get the 12-24 or 16-35 or 16-28 or or...

My partner hates it.  Hates the waiting.  Doesn't see the point of driving miles to sit for ages waiting for light, yet insists on coming with me, huffing and puffing.

If your partner doesn't share your passion, then you need room in the relationship to pursue it.  If you can't get that then there are another three billion people to choose from and you need to ask yourself if it is worth being unhappy like this.


Aren't you being a bit narrow minded there. I'd say it's closer to six billion.

To Paul: People do need space from each other, regardless of ...well... anything. If your other half is not giving it to you, at some point it'll create conflicts.

Everyone is unique, and every situation is unique, so it's tough to give advice on how to proceed there. For me, luckily I have even more passionate hobby than photography (saying after spent 12h this weekend with camera, some 3000 clicks, now working on LR). I do martial arts where we (literally) hit each other on the head with wooden sticks. Man, there's no better way to de-stress. No matter how bad day at office, couple good whacks on the head, and hopefully I can share couple back too, and it's all good again. Same goes for any stress at home or anything, after beating my hobby-buddies with a stick and getting myself beaten too, it's all good again.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: when are the best Sales on 5d Mark iii?

Bought mine last February with 24-105. Sold the lens (as I already had one), effective price for the body $2500.

It's not the pixel size, it's the total sensor area that gives FF the better ISO performance.  The 5DII and 20D have the same pixel pitch.

So, to answer your question...no.
   I had to disagree... the iso performance of the sensor is base on the pixel size and the sensor technology, not the sensor size... 5DII have better ISO performance than 20D is due to the sensor technology and image processing advancement.

  For example, if I crop a 5D3 image to the same size as a crop sensor or I create a crop sensor mask and install in a 5D3 camera, will the iso performance suddenly become bad??

  Have a nice day.

I got butterfly too, unfortunately the bokeh wasn't that good:

I disagree. I think this is a very creative butterfly shot with the balcony and fence nicely out-of-focus with smooth bokeh. Good use of DOF to isolate the subject while still providing a sense of place. Well done.

Thanks. I like the picture, although the bokeh wasn't exactly as I hoped.

That was the coolest place I've been to. Here's another photo from same spot, different lens/angle: http://www.terophotography.com/Pictemp/TERO3439-Edit.jpg

... I just ordered a 16-35L f/2.8 II and a 70-200 f/2.8 II ... What to do of this addiction?

The good news is that those are workhorse lenses and they can earn you money, unlike her shoes (that's right, I thought it, I said it!)  ;D

Depends on shoes...

300 is easily noticeable when you compare side-by-side, but not so much if you just pick random photo and it's off that much. Also depends plenty on the photo.

I can't complain too much for a first attempt at this type of photo :)[/img]

Didn't you have more room to get further away? Or maybe use wider lens?

Couple months ago the sky was really crazy color, here's shot I got. Not much tweaking done.

How did you get the blue??

I guess same way than I get most photos I like: dumb luck.

Other explanation could be WB-slider?

I just threw up in my mouth

Why? I'd think that wouldn't be too pleasant experience.

Was this at f/1.4 aperture?  How long was the exposure?

As I mentioned above, F2 and 15 sec exposure.

I knew the 600-rule, but I thought 30 secs would be close enough. Pixel-peeping it wasn't, but I guess for web (at that size anyway) it would have been ok. But 15 sec came out nice too.
