  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! Lots of great images last week, as always, and some new faces. As part of the Occupy movement (Occupy Louisville locally), students at the University of Louisville orchestrated a walk out at 1:30 p.m. on Monday where they walked out of class to protest the rising tuition costs and unmanagable college debt. As Managing Editor of our student newspaper, I was there with my camera at the ready to document the march. I did find it ironic that the protesters chanted, "Education is a right" inside school buildings, disrupting that right for those that chose not to protest. Anyways, here is a photo from Monday's march, and since it is property of our student newspaper, I will credit The Louisville Cardinal for use of the image.
  2. Happy Thursday.
  3. One more time.

  5. Last grapes of the season -- these few, unharvested "sad" grapes will be mulched into next year's vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon. Photo from 11/11/11 in Sonoma Valley near B.R. Cohn.
    EOS 7D, 70mm, MF, Av mode, f/5, 1/50.
  6. Nathan - there are those who would say that inside school buildings the cry for education is most appropriate, because what students are receiving right now is mostly indoctrination.
    Personally, I had to deal with a bit of a mouse infestation this week - 13 caught in just a few days!
    The new-to-me 20D seen in last week's shot with EF 35/2
  7. Taken 11/11/11 11:11:11
  8. I have a stand of Ginkgo trees outside where I work. I think their leaf shapes are pretty cool so I put a handful on a light box.
    Canon 7e, EF 28-105mm f/3.5, Fuji Superia 400
  9. Canon 5D MarkII 70-200mm 4.0 IS.
  10. 5D2, 50/2.5 Macro, f6.3 at 1/160, ISO 100. (Very strange. stretched out the dimensions of my photo when displaying it, creating the noticeable artifacts. Not sure why that happened.)
  11. I found myself in London at the weekend and bumped into the Lord Mayor's show. This is the forming up area for some of the mounted military units on display.
    These are members of the Blues and Royals, part of the Household Cavalry.

  12. The way out
  13. Hi all here is this weeks photo from me.
  14. From a trip to Rockport MA a few weeks back to meet up with some old Pentaxian friends.
  15. Thursday Greetings.
  16. A young hawk I rescued in July...
  17. Color clash!
  18. Victorian stained glass in the church of St Mary the Virgin in St Neots, Cambridgeshire.
  19. Something very sweet, Orange-almon cake.

  21. This back lit tree just popped out at me while driving down the road last week. No camera. So I planned to come back the next day at the same time (about 10:30 a.m.) with my camera. It rained. Hoping beyond hope that the leaves would still be there the next day, I arrived to see this!

  23. Great pics so far everyone. Frank M., like that picture of the mouse. Missed last week; went to Australia for my step-daughter's wedding. Took the S95--easier to carry than a DSLR. This week my picture is from the archives, last year's trip to see her graduate from medical school. This is the "Three Sisters" rock formation in the Blue Mountains near Katoomba, NSW. Shot from the cable car with a Rebel XS and the 18-55 kit lens.

  25. Dan, I love your horse shot. Please don't be offended by my suggestion of cropping, like this...
  26. Veteran Day performance at my kid's school.

  28. Monarchs at Pismo Beach:
  29. Dennis Couvillion - No offense taken. The original shot was much wider than the one I posted due to distance from subject + full frame + 50mm. I just cropped it square but left a lot of dead space at the bottom of the frame. Your version gets rid of a lot of the noise.

    350D 50mm f/1.8 @ f/2.2
  31. I was fortunate to have this young red-shoulder hawk sit and pose for me for about 10 minutes.
  32. Bill, is that a Red Shouldered Hawk or a Cooper's Hawk? Not to sound pedantic (I'm just curious), but when I found the hawk in my picture I did a little research and found that the two breeds of hawk are very similar.
  33. Hey, Dan...another suggestion, to dramatize the horse's pose, is to keep the square format and convert it to black and white.
  34. @ Dennis C. ~ I like the B&W image of the Horse; awesome!

    From a trip a few days ago. I've since posted this, although I cropped the top a bit.
  37. This is Matillija Dam and reservoir built in 1947 condemned in 1964 and waiting to be removed to restore the ecosystem. Someone has painted a dotted line and scissors on the face of the dam. Mk2 Sigma 24-70 ISO 200 1/200 F7.1 28mm
  38. I am another fan of the horse shot. I am not usually much into horses, but read just the other day that galloping horses have all 4 hoofs together when they don't touch the ground. You can clearly see that in this shot. Apparently early paintings depicted horses wrongly with all hoofs splayed apart while in the air.
    Lee - I love the shot of the Three Sisters, which brings back fond memories. We hiked down into the Canyon and had a great day there when living in Oz. Sadly, I have no photos from that day. When we were almost back at the car I realized that the film counter on my old Minolta SR-7 had gone way past 40 - I had forgotten to load film into it. Thank the gods for digital ;-)
    Louis - My Dad used to be a landscape gardener. Whenever he sees a ginko tree, he explains to me that technically a ginko doesn't have leafs but needles. Go figure!
  39. Last Sunday was a beautiful day. This was taken west of Petaluma on Spring Hill Road.
  40. Still working away on images from a recent trip to the big city.
  41. Taken during my first visit to Washington in March 2009. Canon EOS XTi with Tamrom 28-75 f/2.8 at 33 mm focal length. ISO 100 at 5 seconds and f/16. Had to borrow a tripod from somebody standing next to me as I had not taken mine with me.
  42. Ian, I love that portrait of the young boy. It's just fantastic. Here is one of my daughter's chickens. I get free organic, free-range eggs. They really do taste better than store bought.
  43. Dan - I do not know if it is a Cooper's Hawk. The only hawks that I have seen in my area have been Red-shoulder. When I looked it up on Google it appeared to me to be a juvenile Red-shoulder Hawk. Thanks for the interest. I will investigate it further and let you know.

  45. Bill, here are some photos of both the Red Shouldered Hawk and Cooper's Hawk by nature photographer, Greg Lasley. One of the reasons I think yours is a Cooper's Hawk is the yellow eyes.
    The one that I found in my yard (and which is pictured in this thread) was, I believe, a young Red Shouldered Hawk. However, here's another photo I took about a month later of a hawk on my neighbors SUV. I believe that is a Copper's hawk.
    Anyway, I'm no expert...just curious.
  46. Dennis (sorry, not Dan) - believe that you are correct. It is a Cooper's Hawk. I am excited that I discovered another type of hawk in my neighborhood. Thanks. Bill
  47. Just a reminder -- please only post one photo per person. This week it's not being followed. This is not an official critique forum, of course comments on previous images are appreciated (as been done so often in the past).
  48. Nathan- Good timing on that protest shot.
    Ian- Ultra cute portrait
    Stephen- Fantastic landscape!
    Alejandro- I like the strong color contrasts in the Capitol shot.
  49. Through a bus window.
  50. Season's Greetings
  51. At the feeder again.
  52. In the quarry
  53. I went deer hunting this past week. I found myself thinking I'd be just as happy shooting with my Canon as with my rifle. One evening I did take out the 60D and had some fun with light painting and long exposures. Here's one of the results. The light pollution on the horizon is Tucson, which sat to the west of our campsite. Though very faint, you can make out the milky way just above the tree. Now to figure out how to do noise reduction...
  54. Lots of great images this week, as usual. I was playing around with nighttime photography last night at the old Pabst Brewery in Milwaukee. Came across a beer garden that was completely empty and set up the tripod. HDR'ed it to capture more of the detail in the alcoves.
  55. Snapped a picture of this cute puppy during halftime at my son's soccer game.

  56. High school football season ended with a loss in the playoffs. This kid made a nice one handed catch in his last game.
  57. Working on my "100 Strangers" project - here is my latest submission to the project.
  58. Ken is right, this is a weekly thread where you can post one photo, and it must your own, taken with Canon equipment. Please do not post reworkings of others' photos or photos taken by others. If you are unsure of the rules, there is a link at the top of this thread.
  59. This is my favorite guideline:
    11. Most importantly, as Jose says, join the threads and have fun.
  60. Wow, looking at my photo on my monitor at work, the image is much darker than it was on my laptop at home. I can hardly see anything at all! Can everyone easily see the silhouette of the tree, and where the horizon gives way to the night sky?
  61. James - can't see much at all.
  62. A day late, but here is my contribution:
  63. Shot yesterday (Thursday) at the Nashville downtown Famer's Market in a rainy, dismal day. Handheld, Canon 30D, Sigma 50 f1.4 wide open, 200 ISO.
