Canon Thursday Photo 2011: #37

  1. Happy Thursday everyone! I know, a little early again, but I now have to wake up even an hour earlier (5:30am) to make it to school
    by 8:00 due to one of our two major bridges being completely closed for unexpected repairs. Now we have a daily nightmare of traffic
    to get twice the cars across one bridge. Anyways, enough of my groaning. The internet is out here at home so I am posting from my
    iPhone to get things going. I will post a photo later in the day. Can't wait to see all those photos!

  3. Set out early for this one this morning.
  4. Here's a shot from last week. Elvis is still alive and well at the County Fair!
  5. This is some ornamental grass after a rainstorm. I used a radio trigger flash off-camera and converted to black and white with a little of the original color showing through.
    Canon xsi, 18-55 mm kit lens
  6. Now for something completely different!
    I moved my dining room table over to set up my camera and take this shot of the reflection from the darkening window shade onto the panel beneath the window.
  7. Cemetery scrolls
  8. I like this thread. Maybe it will be inspiration for me to get up off of my lazy @$$ and get the considerable back-log of material from last year's cross-country trip EDITED and uploaded to my website. (Life gets in the way, eh?)
    This is Yosemite's Lake Tenaya, still frozen, just as roads were opened during the thaw. 5D, 24-105.
    ... not that all my photos will be as cool as this one!
  9. We spent last week on Cape Cod, and had every kind of weather you could imagine. Fortunately the misty and rainy days were not entirely lost for photo opportunities.
  10. Alone on the beach on a beautiful evening. Canon T2i/17-55mm
  11. 5D2, Contax Zeiss 50/1.4, about f2 at 1/60, ISO 3200
  12. Not photo related but do u happpen to live in the lousville area, we had a major bridge shut down this week as well,
  13. It was a misty morning a day before yesterday, I was having breakfast but after looking into the window, I just squeezed what left of the food into me in one gulp and jumped out of the house into the forest, just across the road.
  14. Second try
  15. I was catching the late evening light, photographing herons and deer at the park when my battery died. I swapped it out and put it down on the bench and continued to shoot until it was so dark I figured the ranger would be chasing me out soon. Grabbed my bag and headed out anxious to get home and see what I had. When I got home what I saw was that I didn't have the battery. I don't usually get up real early on Sunday mornings, but had to get back to the park before it rained or someone else claimed the battery. I was happy that I thought to take my camera. This is what greeted me at 7 am Sunday morning.Canon EOS 20D, EF 20mm f2.8, ISO 200, f8, HDR from a series of five shots.
  16. Leopard at the San Diego Zoo enjoying some grass.

  17. Shawna Ingraham, driving the #14, is one of the lady drivers that regularly mix it up with the big boys at Wall Stadium Speedway. This is her first season behind the wheel of a race car. While she has yet to win a feature race, she is competitive. (#77 would go on to win this event). A junior in high school, Shawna is 17 years old.
  18. Went to Utah last week.
  19. I had a very nice day at Lord's Cricket Ground, watching some one day international cricket.
    This is England bowler Tim Bresnan getting out.
    Unfortunately, the weather was the winner

    Canon 5d original with 50mm f1,4 at f2.0
  21. I added a few comments to last week's Thursday thread. I've had a few inquiries about how to find the older threads once they scroll off the Canon forum page. There are probably other ways, but I just click on the current thread. Right below the blue "Welcome to Photonet" banner at the top of this page, you can see the link for all of the past Canon Thursday threads...

    I was excited to attend the air show at Smith Reynolds Airport in Winston Salem, NC this past weekend. This is always a good show with lots of air action. This year was no exception. One of the reasons I like this show is the lighting; perfect for good in-flight shots. Nice white fluffy clouds and bright blue sky made some great backdrops.
    Here is an F-104 Starfighter. This airplane was conceived in 1953 and a modified version still holds the low altitude speed record. Shot with a 7D, AI Servo, w/70-200 f/2.8L II.
  22. 7D, EF 70-200 f/4 L IS
  23. Great Blue Heron
  24. Sorry, the photo was too large.
  25. Well it's fall sports season at my school. Unfortunately, I get paid well by my school to videotape games so it is difficult to shoot as much as I would like with my 7D. But I did get this game on Tuesday. Melvin Snoh is our senior captain and one of the top players in the state. As a result he often gets pulled and tripped, as he did in this play, inside the box, but, of course, it was Melvin so the ref's whistle remained silent. We won 1-0.
  26. I didn't get out this past week, but I'll post one that I took a couple of weeks ago when I was wandering around in the morning fog.
  27. Hi all, great shots again.. i was going to follow Lupo and photograph my lunch, but it's still under the grill. So you'll have to wait till next week.
    Another apple for now. It's from a new tree, first batch of apples. According to the label it was supposed to be a Golden Delicous, but this sure isn't a yellow apple..
    Someone know what kind this is?
    5D2, 50 2.5 macro (the girls where not using it, so i took it back.) no post, just resized.
  28. Morning glory vines like to grow in the field wrapping themselves around cornstalks. Trouble is the vine is a real nuisance for the farmer at harvest time as it gets tangled in the rollers on the corn header. However, their flower is pretty, and this one is close to blossoming.
  29. Another week of shooting medical devices on a white sweep for catalog. Don't think anyone wants to see a bone cutters or aorta forceps. I'll submit this shot of the sunset on Jordan Lake, South Carolina, taken two evenings ago. Despite all the rain from last weeks storm, I surprised to see how low the lake was.
  30. Raindrops on a spider web,with a 7d, ef24-205 f7 lens at f/14. I shot several,but managed to miss most of the web itself - just the wrong angle to the sun, I guess.
  31. Got up to NYC for first time in years...
  32. Just a flower, from my moms garden. Eagle claw or somethin' ...
  33. Blowing up a balloon. Not your regular kids party. Pittsfield NH balloon festival. EF 24-105 f4.
  34. Sudden approach by cyclist in morning fog. Canon 1D IIN ready with 2,8/70-200 IS L II.
  35. Mark Kissel.. A little background on your F-104. It is and was a very unforgiving airplane with an extensive accident history. It has a J-57 engine. The same as on 707s. I managed the investigatgion of one such accident. The engine shed a compressor blade at 18k feet destroying the rest of the engine behind it. Because they were over a populated area they tried to dead stick land the airplane and came up 2000 feet short of the intended runway. The two pilots gave their lives trying to save the people below them by not ejecting when they had a chance. Nice picture.
  36. I was hoping to get to a waterpolo game this week, but classroom work kept that from happening. Friday night football is easy to get away for , so another football shot. This is from last Friday's JV game.
  37. kts


    the rain clouds parted long enough to get the 765 steamer at the Boston Mills Station in Cuyahoga Valley Nat. Park this past saturday afternoon.....gonna chase it again this weekend as well
  38. Mark. correction the F-104 had the J79 engine Had a lapse of memory.
  39. Very nice shots this week everyone, my personal favourite is Adrian K's - very different and love the texture.
    Trying different POVs from under an old retired CN caboose serving time as a display (and target for anarchists evidently!) Been trying new things in post and really like adding grain to desaturated shots for a moody effect (if that makes any sense).
  40. Definately not the F-104 that Mark has, (very nice BTW) but something a little bit different for me, . . . a couple of weeks ago I attended an Air Show with a bit of a "twist" from my usual air show attendance. I happened upon an RC (Radio Controlled) Air Show. I watched for awhile, talked with some of the Participant's about their aircraft and was facinated to learn that many of the larger models were powered by a 2 cylinder (opposing cylinder), 4 cycle engine.
    After awhile, I couldn't resist getting out the camera gear! I dabble with some Bird in Flight stuff, but these RC Planes are almost as fun to shoot, and certainly fun to watch!
    Some really nice work over the past couple of weeks everyone! I'm very happy to get to participate, . . . maybe we'll break that 100 mark yet!
  41. Tree fell in the woods (from a bug's eye view). 5D2 and 100L macro.
  42. Busy time here with fall events starting up.
    Here is an 18th c. 6-pounder cannon (not canon, but with Canon 5D) being fired at a French Royal Artillery school.
  43. I will stick with the airplane theme. From the local airshow. two old birds and one new one. Canon 5d MK2 ISO 400 1/400 f/16 Vivitar 100-300 Zoom
  44. Here is the photo
  45. Love the airshow photos. I didn't know any F-104s were still flying - just hope the pilot knows what direction the ejection seat fires.
    I'm always so busy at home that I never have time to shoot, so all my photos are taken on business trips. This was last week in Nagoya, Japan. I was walking back to the hotel after an afternoon of photography and came across the fire department doing some training.
  46. taken with my Canon 7D and 70-200mm F4L IS USM lens, a snapshot of my friend's son over the weekend.
  47. Wow, another shot of fungi in the group. How cool. It's going to be mostly fungi for me 'till they freeze. I got my lens in May and I've spent most of the summer getting acquainted. I was inspired by Lupo to attempt taking food photos while I was canning. Nothing good enough to post, but Lupo, please know that your photos are an inspiration to a newcomer. My fungus of the week, Xeromphalina campanella.
  48. Hiked with my shooting partner to Comet Falls in Mt. Rainier National Park. The falls is about 320 ft tall and then cascades down.

  50. [​IMG] ok the link from flickr does not work
  51. Took me a few tries then I remembered you have to use the HTML code rather than the BBC code .. HTH :)
  52. Here is my contribution: Shot with Canon D60 (old digital one), 50mm 1.8, f/4.
  53. Three dreaded words: Some Assembly Required
  54. False start. Try again.
  55. Oops....keep going.
  56. Great shots folks, as usual. This is not what I originally intended to post, but I got sucked in by the air show theme. So here's one from a few years back. EOS 300D, no camera data...
    Dave, I'm jealous. I lived in Nagoya in 1952 (12-year old kid then), and I'd love to be able to get back there and find the place where we lived - if it still exists...

  58. Pete's sunset photo reminded me of a one I took after arriving at Milwaukee's General Mitchell Airport a couple years ago:
    350D, Sigma 17-70
  59. Jim,

    Yes I do. Unfortunately on the wrong side of the bridge.
  60. More Aikido. Canon 40D, 17-55mm IS
  61. Spring Morning
  62. morning at Sequoia Park
  63. I'll keep some of the theme going with a Blue Angels photo -- while they were practicing over SF.
    This was with my old 10D and 70-200 2.8L lens, shot back in 2006. Normally (hardly ever) I reach back into the archives and post something even more than a week old.
    Just above this post I love William's Mustang photo and Dan's certainly odd fish photo!
    Also, Bruce your Spring Morning is excellent (any story there?) and Tuan's camping photos makes me wanna get back out there ASAP!
  64. Love the air plane photos.
    I wanted to participate so I took a photo this morning.
  65. Last night I went to The Mint Karaoke Lounge in San Francisco, which used to be a regular hangout for me but I hadn't been there in awhile. The occasion was that Randal Schwartz of Perl programming and authoring fame (for the geeks amongst you) was in town while on the MacMania cruise. We had a blast. (Randal is a Canon shooter too!) Click through to see the rest of the set.
  66. A tranquil Vermont stream.
  67. This week I was chosen, by a family member, to do some portrait work - first time photo shoot. I am very green in this field - having acquired the hobby in April of this year, needless to say I was very nervous - great learning experience.

    The shoot is for a Salon and was done with the green background so that a graphic designer can fool around with it easier in Photoshop.

    Thank you everyone for your contributions each week.
  68. Island Paradise in the Maldives.
    5D2, 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
  69. Yosemite Valley
    5D2, 16-35mm f/2.8L II
  70. This week I find myself in Utah on business. Unfortunately I did not travel with my camera equipment, but I sure wish I had. Springville is quite a photogenic little town. Since I don't have any pictures from this week to share I'll make do with a picture I just processed today, taken a couple weeks ago. This is at the Alamo. I like shooting through archways, and am thinking of doing a series - "Olden Arches".
  71. This ship was located at the Yacht Basin in downtown Fort Myers. I was out taking random photos when I came accross it.
  72. Terrapin in a flower bed. Flushed out by our cat.
  73. I love coaching youth football - so it is likely going to be an extensive subject matter for me the next few months. A shot from our first game victory this new season.
    1D Mark IV, 300 f/2.8L.
  74. A shot taken at the Smoke Bluffs in Squamish, British Columbia with my retired 40D and my 70-200 f4 IS lens.

  77. Last Saturday night, thunderstorms seen from the Dutch island of Texel:
    Relatively few visible lightning channels, but I was fortunate to capture this large crawling lightning flash with a fisheye lens from inside the car.

    Oscar, this is just exquisite!
  79. Wow.... It's diffirent seanery...with my country...
  80. Hi folks, late as usual. This week's shot shot for me is from early this morning down on the lake. International Coastal Clean Up Day. Canon 40D Canon 17-40mm L
  81. Thank you Dean, it was a site for tired eyes worn from a long day of studio lights.
    Rob, nice work, and a good reason to always carry a camera. I have a similiar shot:
    I was on the beach shooting my kids while they played, and turned around to see where the sun had gone so quickly.
    Oscar, nice capture as well. I have a thing for clouds, and prefer them much to solid blue sky.
  82. My anniversary recently really taken at Polperro EOS 1D MkIII 17-40L f16 1/40 ISO 400. Why do they upload so soft, pin sharp when it left me!
  83. This was taken at the Cobden, Illinois Purepecha Festival.
    5D Mark i, EF 400mm f/2.8L IS, @ 1/4000 @ f2.8, ISO 200
  84. Sorry I'm late. Here's a photo of the bridge that has been shut down for repair. It's the Sherman Minton I-64 bridge that crosses the Ohio River connecting Louisville, KY and New Albany, IN. Kind of weird seeing it with no cars.
  85. You're never late until the next week's photo thread is posted!
  86. Cape Cod on vacation, 7D with 18 - 135 kit lens
  87. try again...
  88. Nice shot Brad.
  89. Kind of weird seeing it with no cars.
    Nathan, you should see it from the air. Really creepy flying into Louisville and seeing NO lights on the Western approach...
  90. I bet it is. Its funny you say that because we always joke at the newspaper about getting in the "Cardinal Chopper." If we only had one for a school paper. This would have been a great time to have it.
