Rodeo action yesterday with the 1dx and 70-200 and 300 2.8.

Full sun at high noon so the light was quite harsh and from straight above, but i did the best i could

Looks like pursing of the lips is a Rodeo requirement, great action shots Northstar.

I think it makes the horses go faster.  Somehow.     :P

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

In the interest of some hope of getting this thread back on track, I'll post a recent 1D X + 300 f/2.8 IS II + CPL shot
Very good point and very good image, with a slightly unusual use of the 300/2.8. That kind of light is Not easy and the polarizer effect was brilliant. Good job!

Also, the full moon. The next Friday the 13th full moon we´ll have here is in 49 years!

This is from Stonehaven on the Scottish east coast, with Dunnottar castle in the background. Beautiful place. Shot with the Zeiss 21mm f2.8, 1/160s, f9.0, ISO100

When I returned from this trip, I handed in the 1DX to CPS for sensor cleaning. When I picked it up (later the same day!!), they had changed the whole mirror housing, due to wear and tear. I had previously done the recommended services, but still it happened. I only have about 20.000 exp on it, so it was a bit of a surprise. My serial number is 072012001217, so if you have one prior or around that number, it could be that you should have it checked.
beautiful eldar,i really have to tour my own country lol

It often takes a foreigner to show how nice home is ;)

Here´s one from the Stonehaven port on the east coast of Scotland, also with the 21mm Zeiss.

I have mostly been shooting birds and animals lately, interrupted by the occasional portrait and event. Wide angle landscape shooting turned out to be a lot more difficult than I remembered (I have tried becoming a photographer for only 40 years ... ::)).

I'm absolutely drawn to the rider's eyes in that first photo, they're truly captivating. Really great pictures!

Thank you very much for the kinds words AJperk, Dylan, Edward, Click, Eldar, RPT, Bornshooter, and Menace

Never thought I would be interested in Rodeo, but with great food and hot chicks like that I am definitely going if I ever find one!! Nice shots, Northstar.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

I´m a bit scared of loosing my reputation of posting cat images, so here´s a recent one of The Local Lion :)
He´s 14 years old now, but still king of the street  8)
Like with other animals, I find the structure and color of their fur to be amongst the best subject for lens tests there is. Open the link and look close around his eyes ...

I totally wrecked my 135 f2.0L earlier this year and was planning to buy a new, but ended up with a Zeiss 135 f2.0 instead. Optically and mechanically as good as only Zeiss makes them, but of course manual focus. This one is shot with the new Ec-S focusing screen. With that I am able to nail pretty much every shot, provided things does´t move too fast.

1/640s, f2.0, ISO100
