To revive the topic ;) I'll post an oldie (not posted before).
Taking it made me very aware of the AF limitations of the 50D - even though it was in a predictable environment at the World Owl Trust in Cumbria UK (they are in the process of moving to the Midlands)
cheers, Wiebe
[50D + 70-200f2.8L]

Thanks Graham.
Nice shots Wiebe. I particularly like the shot of the owl with his head cranked around.

:) :) I'd like slightly high res photos though. ;)

Slightly off-topic :-[
What would you consider a good resolution for the forum?
I usually keep them reduced to ~1800H x 1200V (pixels) for up-/download size but also to reduce the interest in copying (/stealing...)

Just curious ;) , Wiebe

If steeling is an issue then you have no choice but to keep them down. I've kind of ignored the concept because I haven't been doing any business via my photos and so post 1600 wide.

If you have concern, don't do it.
