Evening at the zoo
« on: May 22, 2013, 01:36:53 AM »
First time here! Hi everybody :)

After fooling around and studying photography as a hobby for a couple of years I am feeling comfortable enough to start sharing images.

So this was an evening at the zoo. Thunderstorm was about to happen, so it was a little dark. I am amazed what 7D and LR can do with ISO up to 3200.

Hi Chris & welcome to CR, Nice Images, especially the middle shot, well done.

I'm actually surprised there isn't a 7D Image Gallery considering how many CR Posters use this particular Camera, seems to be 1Dx 5DMK3 & 6D.

Like the Images in any case.

70-200 2.8 II plus 2x III extender, but I don't remember where I have used the extender. Have to check when I get back home.

Like the second one.  It showcases how well the 70-200 2.8 II / 2xTCIII combo does in situations wherein one is range-limited and don't have / don't wanna carry one of the great big whites.

Really like the timing on the first one.  It's either saying, "Give me food!" or "You look like food!"  ;D

Yes this combination is ideal for me both in respect to price and weight. I was unsure in the beginning about the extender as I heard so many negative comments esp. About the 2x. But from what I have seen I am very happy with the results.

I only felt curiosity from the wolf but I was happy there was a fence between us. :)

Chris,
  Glad to see that the 2x extender is working with 70-200 II along with 7D.  I was wondering how the combination would perform, but after seeing these images, it confirms that it works well. Great job!

Great shots!  I notice you say they were taken in the evening.  Was this at a zoo with late summer hours?  I love zoos that do this.  I tried posting a thread on this very topic a while back, but it went nowhere.

Zoo, oh yes I remember that ... been a long time since I've been to one ... our local zoo closed for renovation which will take 3 to 5 years to complete :(
