Sporgon, you're right, and I guess I wasn't clear in my post - these were meant to be examples of when I was limited by the 24mm focal length and are poor photos because they were done when I was just fooling around with the gear walking around or on vacation. My paid shots are done with far more care and I I tend to correct fully and then back off just a bit to avoid the unnatural look. I also avoid shooting straight on from unflattering angles like this, but I appreciate the feedback.
She had some pictures taken for me and here's one that's been downsized, posted online (compressed), saved from online to my phone and emailed to me (so probably compressed again) so it ain't of the greatest quality but hey... it's better than the dude in the video... right?
Oh... and... she's HOT. I'm a pretty lucky husband
One more thought on the TS-E 17 - the lens cap is awesome! It's so much better than the 14L II that I had. I put the 17 and 24 on the 1D X & 5DIII last night for comparison and they are far more alike than different, but the test will come when I shoot with them both this weekend. I'll post some shots...
To be honest, even though I may agree with jrista that your image seem to be a good one, I did not even consider spending time on it because you watermark ruins it completely.
What pano stitching software would you recommend for a Mac user?
From last summer (no bees here yet this year). Not quite macro but it is a flower and a bee.

Sporgon, as one of our resident pano masters, I appreciate your reply and the many excellent samples and explanations you posted! What a huge variety of focal lengths you use and I really like your work. I'm sure the 40mm works well and now I kind of wish I'd kept mine. As for the 17mm comment, I feel that way, too, but then I've found myself looking at some amazing panos and read that they were shot at 14-17mm Obviously some scenes are suited for it.
Maybe...but it's also nice to be able to actually see the true DoF through the VF, for compositional reasons.
With the tele lenses the compression of the scene is often clearly visible, no matter how wide the panorama later on is. The whole scene looks then easily a bit flat.
Well, here's my response Joe. These action figure images are an embarrassment and if I were you wouldn't hold them up as an example of anything even remotely related to good photography. This page represents the local (sic) Camera Club and I think we can do better than this.
Nice! Great shot as well, and you must have swans with the calm Scandinavian demeanor. The last time I got that close to American swans, I was attacked, and yes, their bites actually hurt! I suppose my Norwegian heritage (my last name is Anderson) didn't buy me any professional courtesyThanks macguyver, but I got to this point on my own. The issue was the scale; How much do I adjust AF/step on their scale. From what I understand, I can do a FoCal on each of the distances and then I can punch in the adjustment values pr. focal length. That way I get a much more accurate AF from close to infinity. The Sigma scale has 20 steps +/-, like FoCal, so I suspect they will match fairly well. AFMA pr. lens will then be the offset to that again.I missed this the other day and sorry I couldn't be more helpful, but I love the swan shot! I can't believe you got so close.
If I only had more time ....
Since this is about images, here is my Local Swan mother, taking care of her 6 eggs. I don´t remember having shot birds with a 50mm before, but there´s a first for everything.

This is Norway, lol, we go birding with uwa's.
Here's a recent shot with the 17-40 at 17mm
