50mm 1.8 II

im not an animal photographer nor do i like wild animals to be held hostage. still there are just like 3000 tigers or such in the world so it was a good chance to see one alive. who knows if the future generation can do it?

I pulled out my 50mm 1.4 and rediscovered my love for it after spending too much time with my 24-70 II.  This was shot at 1.8

That tiger's got it's eye on you. You're very brave using a 50mm. I wouldn't have considered that shot on anything shorter than a 400mm  ;D

Well it was on APS-C so its more like 80mm. I talked to the tiger so she looks into my camera. i hesitated to go closer.
You could also sit next to the tiger and let ur friends take photos of that for like 3 us dollars. I didnt want to do that cuz cats are my gods so it felt really wrong to me.  but yeah im wondering also what they gonna do if the tiger gets angry? perhaps it was declawed :(

Don't forget a smack from the paw could break your neck if it wanted to! Declawed means very little really...

The picture looks good. However, I wonder how strong that brass thingie is...

I can't match the amazing light on eml58's beautiful Java shots, ( anything shot on a 1Dx )  but here's one of mine.

I've been playing around with tweaking some pictures after sizing for the web and I think it produces a better result for viewing at a small size.

5D + 40mm @2.8

Two shots of a bobcat I spotted at San Simeon SP.  Realize the branch in front of the cat is a distraction but it was there.  There is a wooden boardwalk that leads from the parking load to the back trails and the kitteh was paralleling it as I went along.

Hi Sporgon, you've picked a difficult shot for anyone, reflected light, off water, with shadows, and you've managed not to blow the highlights, well done.

I see done with the new 40mm Pancake ?? looks good

After spending quite a bit of time standing on a rock in the middle of a swamp I was happy to have been able to capture these shots of Dragonflys.

I got many shots of them resting on bits of grass, but what I was really after was shots of them in flight.

I managed to get a few of these that were actually in focus (those things move so fast for their size!).

I hope that you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

I was using my 7D with an old ef-s 55-250mm lens.
