  1. Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels wide/high for in-line viewing, and please try to keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc).

    Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Thursday threads are right here. Remember: only one image each week!​
    Happy Thursday everyone! The internet works this week so I can post a photo to start off the thread. School has still been busy but I managed to stop by a promising Wood Duck location between classes to poke around for a minute. I didn't have my waders or enough time to stake out a spot and wait for a good shot, but I did take this from the bank. The ducks are skittish so its hard to approach them. The photo is a pretty hefty crop, but the 16 MP of the 1D IV was on my side.

    Music shot this week...Tiger Honeypot at SUB/Mission in San Francisco.
  4. Hi all,
    here is a photo of a bird feeder outside my apartment:
  5. No shooting this week. Here is another one from the fair a couple of weeks ago. Note the man with his feet on the ground is holding up 5 people! That's a lot of weight, even if they all do look very light.
  6. I took several flower shots in my back yard this week, and after reviewing them for a bit I ditched them all. DOF was too shallow for the large hibiscus blossoms. So for this week's posting I pulled up an older photo (earlier this summer) and processed it. Hood ornament of a 1940-something Pontiac. Amazingly, the glossy black paint was original.
  7. Reaching into my archives, here's a shot of the Kinzie Street bridge in Chicago with the Canon 15mm fisheye lens from several years ago.
  8. Camera Canon EOS 7D
    Exposure 0.167 sec (1/6)
    Aperture f/11.0
    Focal Length 19 mm
    ISO Speed 100
    Exposure Bias +1/3 EV
    Lens Model EF-S15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
  9. I had a trip to Lord's last weekend for some cricket and then a trip to the Royal Berkshire Show.
    There's a shot from one of the showing classes here
    The best fun was the scurry racing, in which very small carriages, pulled by ponies are timed around a course.
  10. First band promo shoot.
  11. Just another fly ...
  12. The goalie was able to save this one but we eventually won 2-nil.
  13. I finally got out to a soccer game this fall. The light was harsh and I couldn't seem to find any angle good to be able to shoot the kids from my school.
  14. Wood Stork
  15. Nowhere near Lupo's level, but i'll keep trying.
    Here's a tomato, basil, cheese, bacon strip (ob epic mealtime) on wheat, grilled for 7 minutes.
    5d2, 50 2.5 macro, F16.
    @ Randy Cooprider , Last weeks apple: Red Delicous.
    Good call! I think it is. You don't see those much in NL.
    I never heard of them. But the tough skin and bad for cooking fit..
    at least they look stunning when polished.
  16. Nathan, got to love those wood ducks. I think the Mandarins and woodies are the two most colorful of the duck family.
    I'll add some comments to last week's batch this evening. Pressed for time today.
    This bride was a natural at working the camera. Her lovely smile just lit up the place. She was having her portrait done and I couldn't resist a shot too. I was actually a fair distance away and shot this with the 100mm L Macro. Heavily cropped to work it as a portrait from a landscape orientation. Processed the RAW image in DPP and final edits/cropping in PSP X4. Resized in Picasa for display here.
  17. Sunrise over gap Lake Alberta
  18. My contribution this week is another Morning Glory. You can see that this one is growing up a corn stalk. The bees have been going in and out of the flower leaving the white pollen on the flower. One visited while I was there, but I was careful not to bother him as bee stings are potentially fatal to me. (Epi-pen was close by.)
    Nice pictures so far this week everyone.
  19. An assignment for a music themed photo. 2 lights. One behind and above, another on camera, bounced up.
  20. I found this Japanese Cherry tree blooming while on a walk this week. Just in time for the fall foliage tours. It was a very young one, and the only one blooming out of a hundred or so. Canon 7d, EF70-200mm f/4L IS USM
  21. Had to pull the macro lens out of the bag this week.
  22. Chatham, Cape Cod on a sunny September afternoon.
  23. A scene from the Lenexa Spinach Festival. Canon 7D, EF 70-200 f/4 IS

    nice one Louis.....
    shot saturday morning at an urban garden in the ohio city neighborhood......
  25. Seagulls flying in formation behind a tour boat in Halifax harbour, waiting for people to throw bits of bread up to them.
  26. White-tail deer doe munching grasses in the evening sun:

  27. Canon 40D 24-70mm @46mm f/2.8 1/250 @ ISO 1600
  28. Dog-sitting the in-laws puppies this weekend.
  29. Although my contibution for this week is probably not a very good shot, . . . I couldn't resist posting this one.
    While attending a local Air Show last weekend I noticed this young Photographer's skill's and habit's that caught my undivided attention for sometime!
    Her interest's in the individual Aircraft was facinating to watch, as well as her "chimping skills!"

    Three cheetahs feeding on a fresh kill
  31. Thunderbirds at Portsmouth Air Show. Low contrast.
  32. Had to put the water Hyacinth in the greenhouse because of the colder weather here in Colorado. They went blooming crazy. Opps! A pic would be nice.

  34. Just finished shooting three consecutive nights of my music school's quarterly band showcases in San Francisco. Also performed myself on one of the nights, singing and playing bass and keyboard and still shooting all the other bands as well... whew! This shot is from last night; this band had a very loud and enthusiastic crowd.
    Canon 5D Mk II, 85mm f/1.8 at f/2.8, 1/50s, ISO 1600.
  35. Just some avocado from our picnic at home last last Saturday. Afterwards we went out and saw the Soderbergh film "Contagion".
    24-70 slightly shaky at hand-held 45mm, 1/80, f/4. I was hungry (& impatient).
  36. @ David S. - I LOVE your photo of the Deer... I am amazed it was hand held and yet very sharp. :)
  37. Guess I'll go with the food theme this week. Club sandwich. 5d Mk2 ISO 400 1/5 f/32 Sigma 24-70
  38. I went out Monday to photograph some Art in the Park. While walking back downtown I passed by the Main Seattle Library and noticed this abstract view that I had not seen before.
  39. Great shots again this week.
    Jeff Spirer - I love your shots week after week. And I have a suspicion that even though we're in the same time zone, we're rarely awake at the same time!
    James F. - Nice one of the pontiac hood ornament. Great sense of movement.
    Lupo - wow - I don't know if I'm more amazed by your cooking or your photography!
    Matt - Those seagulls are neat - I just rewatched "The Birds" a few months ago, and that shot gave me a flash back!
    Mine is from a week ago or so, with some neat clouds behind the pier.

  41. I got out early one morning of my vacation to get some sunrise pictures.

  43. All those great food shots stimulate my appetite, however I have been feeding on torte and schnitzel in Bavaria for five weeks, so I decided to post a shot of a beautiful city on the Danube, Passau. I remember it many years ago as a sleepy village. Now the cruise boats are everywhere here and it is loaded with tourists.

    Fun with light.
  46. Great pictures again this week.
    As usual a flower shot from me;
  47. Japanese Garden
  48. Taken while on a walk yesterday searching for early spring native orchids. I found a few but I thought this pic of a small, unidentified, bird had more apeal.
  49. I havent posted anything for a few weeks, have been focusing on paid work which isnt all that inspired so felt i hadnt done much worth posting.
    I really missed the thread so decided to post something from a few weeks ago rather than not post anything.
  50. My wife and I paddled from Castle Junction to Banff in inflatable kayaks
  51. This is film processing plant down the road from us. I walk in the evening and enjoy the clouds.
  52. I should have said plastic film processing plant. They print labels on plastic bags.
  53. Went to the Zoo this past weekend, and this elephant caught my eye. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
  54. I got out of the woods and spent some time with animals at a local college. What's not to love about being laughed at by a pig.
  55. computer glitch, oops. try the photo again

    Thanks for the comment on my photos. Regarding the line here that I took from your post, please see this thread.
  57. @Jeff Spirer. Looked at the thread and am amazed at your self portrait skill :).
  58. Arie - how did you like the Redearth Creek section - water levels are low at the moment but still fun!
  59. From several weeks ago. Haven't been out much lately.
  60. Taken today – after three weeks working abroad it was good to come back home to Iceland.
  61. Really some great images this week everyone. So far my favourite has to be Jeff Palmucci's B&W, very nice lighting, you'll have to let us know how you did on the assignment
    Not this week however stumbled upon a completely covered marker under a tree while out shooting in a local cemetery (nope, didn't see Jeff Spirer! it being daytime and all). I don't think anyone had seen this little guys grave in some time, made me want to capture an image although I'm not sure what I'll do with it.
  62. From the archives. A typical day of commuting in Chicago....
    350D, 28-80mm @ 80mm
