Canon Thursday Photo 2011: #43

Discussion in 'Canon EOS' started by nathangardner, Oct 26, 2011.

  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! Apparently the northern lights have been visible here in Indiana the past two nights and as far south as Tennessee and Alabama. I unfortunately did not know about this until today and it's raining now so I won't be seeing it tonight, if it's still showing anyways. If anyone got photos I'd love to see them. I got out yesterday to try to find some wildlife near a local stream. I saw several wood ducks and this female kingfisher. This is a hefty crop, but a testament to the 1D IV and to the 1.4x tele-converter for maintaining sharpness, even when cropped.

  7. [​IMG]Nathan I feel the same as you, lucky to have my new 1D MKIV, and a noticeable difference in my teleconverters! Nice job on the Kingfisher. Great start off of the thurs. thread, alll so beautiful, the snow, Fall, model and kickboxer. The food is fantasic in clarity.
    I'll add a lucky day shot. I found a Golden Eagle, really rare here. MKIV+ 500f4IS
     
  8. I love those colors Robin, fortunately I'm in Oregon so I get to see a bit of them right now!
    I finally got to take a trip up to the coast after living in Oregon for almost a year. Here's one of my more favorite shots. It's a handheld 3 shot panorama, tried to fix distortion as much as possible...

  11. Looking good folks! So many awesome shots already.
    I'm sharing my first ever stab at HDR - from three frames (-2,0,2), Picturenaut HDR freeware. This is a dry lake bed in Ironwood National Monument where my friends and I like to go exploring and do some target practice.

  12. Some of my aviation photos were on display at a local flying club this week and I went down to see a lecture by someone who flew a biplane from the UK to South Africa.
    This is one of the members listening to the lecture.

  13. here's one from a week or 2 back. Rosebud in rain. I was trying to capture the raindrop that was sitting on top of the rosebud.

  14. Nice one, Nathan! I shot a kingfisher this past weekend, but it was so small in the frame, I abandoned the image.
    Couple of standouts to me...
    Lupo - for the sake of my waistline, I try not to look at your photos very long.
    Jeff Spirer - I feel like I'm in the cage, just a few feet from the fighters. Very nicely done against that strong overhead light.
    Linda Jones - Excellent capture of the Golden Eagle. Composition is perfect.
    A very nice start for this week.
    Was traveling to a favorite spot this past weekend and rounded a corner to see this nice bit of sunlight streaming through the trees. Felt compelled to pull over and capture the scene.

  15. From a day when we found a lot of deer skulls on a rock in the woods. Creepy, but couldn't leave them alone. Maybe early, but Happy Halloween.

  16. The high school fall sports are getting to the critical time of the season. Championships will be decided and the playoffs will start. This was from a very close game with team in white ekeing out an 11 - 8 win.

  17. Another shot from the "World's Largest Truck Convoy" fundraiser for the Special Olympics. This was one of two entries from Mountaire Farms.

  18. This is a photo of my friend "Coach" (In yellow and black). While in Gainesville for a weekend of bicycle riding, I had the opportunity to watch him race in the Gainesville Senior Games (it was 39 degrees at the start of the first race). Coach is 72 years old. He won gold medals in both time trial events he entered. Also, this is my first attempt at motion photography.

  19. Hi Lupo, great shot..

  21. This week I saw this pair of herons dancing in the water. Unfortunately I was shooting into the sun, but seeing more than 1 at a time is rare for our area (South East Ohio.)

  29. Very nice work above. No shooting this week, as real life was just too intrusive. This is from a couple of weeks ago...

  33. This was the start of the 2011 Mille Miglia tribute "race" in Santa Barbara yesterday. Of course I don't think pushing the car 1000 miles was a good way to start out. They are all driving north up the coast to San Francisco and back again. It looked like most entrants were raising money for charity. My son and I also shot some video here is a link. We are having trouble getting my 5D mk2 to match his 60d while shooting video so we can do two camera video. Much to our delight it was a very rare sunny morning in Santa Barbara. I had my ISO set to 800 expecting a normal overcast morning and forgot to change it. 1/200 f/18

  43. I took some pictures from the 36th floor of a apartment building yesterday, but because my vertigo (floor to ceiling glass) I forgot to look at exposure, all were overexposed. A was a pity because the view was beautiful.
    So unfortunately a picture from last week from me:

    From a recent photo trip to the Oregon side of the Columbia Gorge. This is Vista House that sits high above the Gorge. I'd like to check the "unmanipulated" box, but folks probably wouldn't believe me (and with good reason). Taken with a Canon 1DsMkIII and Zeiss 21mm lens.

  58. A common kestrel. I discovered that when telling friends and coworkers that I was going to spend the weekend shooting birds of prey, it was best to also inform them that the shooting would be done with a camera.
