  1. I am starting this weeks Canon Photo Thursday on Friday. Hope everone is well. You Know the drill. Post your Canon Photos for this week and thanks for participating. Fun Fun.

    Canon 5D MK IV - Canon 14mm f/2.8 L II 20 sec exposure - I took some shots during the meteor shower while camping. The is one meteor captured here with the Milky Way as a back drop. The moon had not risen. There was some light on the horizion coming from York ME or possibly Portmouth NH. Clicking on image will give you the large view.

  3. A few more flowers... 066Aa.jpg
  4. I can't remember the last time I saw that many stars! Maybe in the Wisconsin wilderness somewhere!
    cameragary and Mark Keefer like this.
  5. 5DSr, 100-400 ll.jpg 5DSr, 100-400.jpg A few photos from the archives. I haven't done much lately worth posting. Canon 5DSr and 100-400.
  6. That sky neede editing. 5DSr, 100-400.jpg
  7. So often, iconic things well-known from photographs turn out to be a little disappointing in real life.
    This is definitely not one of those.

    TSE 17mm
  8. A cat on a laptop is not unusual (looking for the mouse, maybe?) But the light was nice, so I thought I'd take a few frames. Grabbed the M5 out of the backpack where it usually sits with the 18-150, put a Godox V1 on top and fired away. Only then did I notice the large headshot of a cat on the "Cat-a-Day" calendar behind the real cat. Recomposing and bouncing the V1 gave this picture, which has been slightly cropped. We have it good these days, digital raw capture with large post capture adjustment possibilities, autofocus, and almost flawless auto flash. Four and a half decades ago I had acquired two fake Siamese kittens, and they needed to have some action shots. Hasselblad on tripod, flash on rail, tests with Polaroids. String a cat toy from a doorway and shoot away. That whole production took thirty to forty minutes. Today, grab camera w/ lens plus V1, mount, turn everything on, remove lens cap, kneel and shoot. Recompose, shoot again. Prep time, maybe ninety seconds. Shot four frames, seventy seconds from first to last. No editing apart from the cropping. Yes, we truly have it good!

    P.S. Thank you, Mark, for starting this week. I thought nothing would ever happen!
  9. Well, due to the delayed start I thought I'd contribute two more photos. Over the last few years I have picked up a some oddball lenses for my M5. Last Monday I went to B&H and acquired a Laowa 9 mm f/2.8, after reading some favorable reviews of the lens. I mounted it on the camera and did a bit of a walkabout. Two of the pictures are attached, they were probably shot at f/5.6 - f/8. At least that is approximately what I remember, and it seems to correspond somewhat to the good old Sunny 16 rule. The flower was shot at the closest focus, about 12 centimeters. For you Barbarians that is close to 5 inches! There was a bit of wind, so the result is not optimal. The ESB was cropped to 30% of the original APS-C frame and had the blue color enhanced.
