  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 lid has come off the state of Kentucky! It's March Madness in the U.S. and here in the Bluegrass State, where basketball is king, we have two rival universities set to face-off on the ultimate stage in the Final Four on Saturday. The state is in absolute pandemonium and it's a very exciting time to be a part of the University of Louisville student newspaper. My shot this week is from the reception for the basketball team as they returned home with the West Regional bracket trophy. Peyton Siva and Chane Behanan greet fans as they got off the plane Sunday afternoon. GO CARDS!
    Let's see those great photos!

  5. Brad-damn, that is one strong image. Thank you for sharing it.
    Had another image in mind but still struggling with the post work on it. Warm ups at the New Egypt Speedway season opener.

  8. Ken, I'm a big fan of Sierra Nevada's Torpedo IPA (which we can get up here in BC), but I'd love to try Hoptimum.
    Thanks for whetting my palate. :)
     
  9. No Canon images this week - only with the Leica. I was travelling all week but took this quick snapshot with my M8 in Grand Central Station

  35. Basilique St-Nazaire, Carcassonne. 3 years ago I tried to capture the same shot using a Canon 40D with 24mm TS-E lens and tripod - it required a 2 x 2 grid pano to capture the whole scene and the result was not as good as this single handheld shot taken with 5D2 + 17mmTS-E. Truly remarkable technical progress from the 5D2 sensor, 17mm TS-E lens and improved CS5 processing. 1/40s @ f/5.6 ISO 1600.

  41. Awaiting The Frogs
    While walking around the south of downtown Seattle last weekend, I came across a major construction site. I was attempting to find a good view of the cranes to photograph when I noticed this area of the site instead. A person passing by said, "It looks like a surreal frog pond".

  50. A photographer's pets should be photographable, right? My black cat has eluded my every attempt to photograph her for 15 years now, but on her 15th birthday, she finally settled in the sunshine on a mostly black quilt, with a dark background, and invited me to photograph her. I didn't pull out my SLR, because I never get more than one shot with it before she glares at me and runs away. I got this one with my little G11. :)

    Nice shot Sarah, what a gorgeous cat, but I thought this is an EOS photo thread - maybe Mirrorless Monday?
     
  53. Don. I don't think you should be too literal. Sarah is a regular contributor to the EOS forum and a big EOS user. The other
    photo forums that I post shots on on Photo.net (MF, Leica and Canon FD) are not as strict. Indeed I am more guilty than
    Sarah as this week (for the first time ever) I posted a non EOS shot (Leica M8) as I did not shoot an EOS body this week
    (it is a long time since I last did that). Surely you should look at the image otherwise we will get into debates on should an
    EOS body but a Leica R lens be admitted
     
  54. We were VERY strict here the first several weeks -- EOS only -- now it seems 5% of the images are non EOS. C'est la vie I guess. As usual, some terrific work here! If we could only surpass 99 submissions... if only.
     
  55. How about if we just stick with an EOS body, film or digital. Seems pretty simple.
     
  56. Jack,
    I watched finding Nemo with my granddaughter and those gulls seem to be saying "Mine, mine" just as they did in the show. Does life imitate art? :)o)
     
  57. Sorry, I thought it was Canon, not necessarily Canon EOS. I was just excited about the shot, because Natasha is customarily the unphotographable cat -- usually a featureless black hole wherever she happens to be, never willing to settle where you put her, and always quick to run away at the slightest click of a machine. ;-)
     
  58. I got out to a high school soccer game last Friday. This was the best I managed to get.

  60. Now I understand, why Nikon tread is longer, they accept all Nikon shots.
    I did not realize that EOS is elite club.

    It's not an elite club. The forums iare different. There is a second Canon forum, there is no second Nikon forum.
     
  62. WHAT NEXT use a 1Dx with L glass or stay at home. Good luck getting 99 post.
     
  63. For a some time now I've used my G10 as my recreational camera and luckily have made a few good photos but I never even thought about posting those here because of the EOS requirement.
    So I don't understand why we would want to change the rules now.
    And just to help the 99 I'll post an EOS shot next week.

    You may shoot only to post, but some of us shoot to shoot and don't choose our activities based on the guidelines of a web forum.

  66. So I'm happy to respect the rules of this series of threads. My posting a Canon G11 shot was an honest mistake on my part. However, I am confused as to the intent of these threads, both here and elsewhere (e.g. the Nikon threads). Is the purpose to showcase what Canon EOS cameras can do? Or is the purpose for a community of Canon EOS photographers who know each other to hang out and show each other what interesting things they shot each week? I'm not really interested in participating if it's the former.

  68. Sarah my assumption was the same as yours (a community of EOS photographers). For example the Leica and
    rangefinder thread accepts photos from all kins of cameras and no one ever makes a fuss - indeed they accept EOS and
    Nikon DSLR shots taken by people who use the forum. I appologies if posting a Leica shots caused issues but this was
    not my intent - all of my prior posts on this forum have been taken with an EOS body (and mainly with a Canon EF lens)
     
  69. Canon 7D

  70. Personally I favor the spirit of the rules, and the posters, than the letter of the law. Not that my opinion means anything :)
    I did have some early submissions, over two years ago, deleted by Josh because they were considered not current enough, but I post when I can.
    With the Canon users being split amongst at least four forums it does mean we can never compete with the Nikon forum weekly image thread on numbers, but who cares? I now own a Nikon and a Canon but haven't posted over there as it doesn't "feel right", stupid I know but isn't that why half of us hang out here?
    Take care everybody and don't let your spirits get dampened, I am off to have another go at birds in flight this week just because of these threads, I have never been told to wear a hat because "it can be messy" before!
    Hope to "see" you all on Thursday, Scott.
     
  71. Last week it was warm enough for the turtles to be out.

  72. I agree that we should 'generally' follow the rules but I personally like the idea of EOS photogs hanging out and sharing what they shot, regardless of equipment. Sarah's shot of her cat was great and I appreciated it having tried thousands of shots of our cats with only moderate success. I'm even more impressed that she got it with her G11!
     
  73. LOL! Thanks, Andy! Yeah, some cats are beauty queens and will pose shamelessly. Natasha isn't that kind of cat, but she's at least slower to bolt in her old age. ;-)
    I suppose my feeling about this theme is somewhat like Groucho Marx's "I wouldn't think of joining ANY club that would have ME as a member!" (... or words to that effect) I just hate anything that smacks of competition (and always have), but I'm admittedly weird that way.
    The only observation I will make is that I see absolutely no difference between a Canon EOS shot with a film camera with a legacy EOS lens and Canon FD shot with the same legacy lens in the FD mount. Is the shutter that important? I also see no difference between a Canon EOS film and Canon FD shot using the same M42 lens adapted to either body. Really, who cares? Maybe a compact like the G11 is (or should be) in another sort of category. However, maybe the best thing is just to have a weekly picture thread that's mostly EOS, but open to all -- even Leica trash. ;-P Of course it's not my thread and not my concept, therefore not my rules.
     
  74. I'm with Sarah about competition. I love all of the shots that have been posted. I hope that no one's goal is to have Canon photogs compete against Nikon photogs. It's alright as a jovial incitement to get people to post. Having forums for Canon and Nikon gives us 2 days of great content. And now we have mirrorless Monday as well! I'd say I'm hungry for Thursday's photos because of Lupo's posts, but that that may be a little much.
    As for rules, they should probably be considered as guidelines.
     
  75. Perhaps we should simply do away with them all and simply lump EVERYTHING in one forum. It IS all about photography right? Or perhaps we should just post anywhere we feel like at the moment. My point is simply, why have forums if we can post anything in them. I do believe mainly that we are simply sharing but next we will have Hasselblad, Mamiya and all the others joining. I do not post to compete here or anywhere else. I love to see the responses to a thread in "NO WORDS" where this sort of thing is welcome and in my opinion should be kept. Anyone for posting their EOS in the Nikon forum? Not trying to be a SA but this IS the EOS forum. What a can of worms!
     
  76. @Sarah Fox I just hate anything that smacks of competition
    Where did that come from? I've never viewed this thread as competitive or as a competition.
    I went back to the very first Canon Thursday Photo and what do you know someone posted a shot made with a Canon S90. So there are some variances about what is allowed in vs what the guidelines specify. EOS body or EOS lens (the latter which does not make sense to me).
    I initially missed Phillips Leica entry which is definitely way out in left field, IMO.
    And yes I think the Canon Thursday Photo should be limited to EOS shots since that is the camera used for the greatest preponderance of images and that seems to be where the vast majority of users interests are - camera wise.
    But if the mods wish to open the submissions to any Canon - fine! Let's just have some clarity.
