Yesterday I took my "birding" lens (100-400mm II) by accident instead of the 70-200 (as they are almost the same size it's easy to make the mistake :confused:) - so 'subject isolation' through wide aperture was a bit harder...
Made the best of it - and actually for some of the scenes the 100-400 may even have had an advantage; see below
... close up, almost dreamy look ;)

... but when he is playing with another dog it all looks very different :p (they were running up and down a sand dune, sometimes at a distance where >200mm was useful...)

Nice one! You have captured it precisely. All the images are wow!

Thanks all for your kind comments!
@Valvebounce - At least this time they parted as friends, no harm done to either (apart from being exhausted from all the running ;):p). Looking forward to your pic's Graham!

Hi Folks.


A few of Mojo, he is deaf and will only come back if he remembers to look for hand signals and he is far more interested in all the smells than checking if we are signalling to him! Fortunately we have found somewhere that we can let him run and not worry that he will get on the road.

All with 7DII and 70-200 2.8L II

I know I promised some with the 100-400, but I finished the pp on these first so you get these instead!

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Graham,
'Mojo' may be deaf (and probably old) but he's active enough :)(y) - good that you have found a place where he can have his safe workout!
Nice pictures - and don't you love the smooth OoF blurring of the 70-200 f/2.8 :cool: (fortunate you with the IS II versus my unstabilized one :p... But they both have that really nice bokeh).
Wiebe.

Hi Wiebe.
Thank you for your kind words.
Yes he is older too, 9 to be precise, when we inherited him his fitness level was quite a bit lower than now, now he is wearing us out rather than us wearing him out! ;) (He still goes home worn out but it takes longer and gives us a good work out too!)
Yes I love the dreamy bokeh when used wide open and it holds up quite well at f4 too, actually only the third shot is f2.8, the others are quite hard crops at f4 as he was further away, helping give f4 the creamy bokeh, I took lots more at 2.8 but these were the more interesting shots. Most of the rest are of him trotting along rather than a full on run or playing.

Cheers, Graham.

I took these images of my dog when comparing my Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 to my (then) new Tamron 85mm f/1.8 VC. The conclusion that I came to was that I couldn't tell w
_MGL4001.jpg
hich was which, despite the Zeiss being rated as one of the most pleasing 85mm on the market, so I ended up selling it as the image stabilisation and AF of the Tamron made it a so much more useable lens.

Canon 5DS + Tamron 85/1.8. one at f/1.8 the other f/5. ISO 800. The dog is ball mad and very possessive so I couldn't get her out from under the swing seat !
