Ahhh... Jack,
But you have the 1DxII and the great white lens.
I still shoot with the old mk III, which also went to CPS for service.  Nearly 300 bucks and they say its a loose or displaced sensor.  I dropped it, twice  :'(.
So, I'll refrain from mentioning the trip.  For a while  ::).
You enjoy the Canadian Rockies and the grizzlies.  Post your pix!

Riley, seems I can't win this argument but that was payment for essentially functioning as a slave for two years.  OK maybe it was a fairly generous payment - you win.

Until I put some serious effort into shooting, my shots are typically back lit which naturally diminishes the sharpness but never the less I feel this still has some artistic appeal.  I have pushed the sharpening too.  From this frosty AM.

Hope that you've finished the "slave term" and be able to live your life to the fullest.
Now, Jack, go out and shoot!  Post some of the wonder too.

Thanks.  I had hoped for more shots but this is all I got and after a while the frost melted away! :(  Another lazy shot from my window, which is the problem and my fault.  The days are getting longer and the sun is getting higher and no longer setting at 4 PM so there is hope.

Hi Jack,

Your back lit scene actually creates a very nice, dreamy picture. It doesn't matter that there is no perfect sharpness on the eyes - it has artistic appeal!

Lion rock. I just sent you a personal message - to see how that system works and to give you my e-mail address in case you want more info about Maui and Oahu.
Cheers!
