But...but you shot an event with action...with a 6D...somebody tell him he's not allowed to do that!!

I know, right?  I had meant to post some shots months ago with a similar comment but forgot... ;D.  I was pleasantly pleased with my results even though I could have done better, because I'm a landscape shooter.  Action was definitely a change of pace for me.

You did a great job!  I notice no 5D3 snobs have piped their two cents in.  If I had posted images like this, there would be a few posts about how the 5D3 would have done better, and "if only you used a 5D3 you would be a real photographer"...and "the 5D3's color is just more accurate"...etc etc.  Hogwash!

Bone Doc - just be careful at those type of events!

Good to know.  Thanks Dustin.  FWIW, this was my 3rd Color Run.  The first 2, I used the 24-70 MkII.  I protect it by putting it in a ziploc bag, and tape the opening of the bag to the UV filter.  So at the end of the day, there was almost no dust on my lens / camera combo.  I have to think that some of these people who did this didn't care as much about sealing their camera as they are using someone else's. 

This last one (from which the pictures were taken), I made sure that I didn't get much at all on my Tamron when I pass, and then shoot from a pretty safe distance :).

And he shot it with a Tamron lens.  Heresy!

but all the color dust would look so much nicer on a 5d3 (like, on it...not the images....lol)

Haha, yeah, probably :p. the 6D was sure trashed a lot here and other places when the specs came out, but most of that has died down now that it's gotten in people's hands.  While the autofocus system definitely could be better, it meets my needs and I usually manual focus; this event was an exception

I mostly shot with a 70-200 f4, so I could be further away. Some guys were right up close and had their rigs smothered in powder!  And if the color is off, it's because of my lack of PP skills, not the camera ;)

Maui sunset on honeymoon - one of the first pics I took with new 6D.  Trying to learn Lightroom as well - if anyone has any tips or advice on the editing, please share!

Sunsets/sunrises or just Hawaii in general?  I have plenty of each!  Here's a couple fun, random ones from Maui; will post few from Kauai in a sec.  Hope you enjoy.  Loving the 6D!

Both or either. My guess is that the first photo is of the new Mrs.(with a Mai Tai 8)) and the 2nd is a sunrise over Haleakala (House of the Sun in Hawaiian). :)

Excellent guesses! Seems to be some user error going on trying to upload a couple Kauai pics. Will try again tomorrow.
