  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! Hard to believe it's the last thread of 2012. As we did last year, I'll post a link to the first Thursday thread of the year just for fun to look back and see how we have improved in 52 weeks. I hope everyone had a great holiday and was safe. I'll see you in 2013. Let's see those photos.

  4. I went for a walk over by the river last Thursday and liked the shadows and light.
  5. The next day my wife went down to the San Luis Wildlife refuge and were disappointed in how few birds were around. I did find this great egret though.
  6. But finding these Tule Elk bulls made the trip worthwhile.
  7. Hard to believe it's been just a week since the big snowstorm. Here's a shot from last weeks blanketing.
  8. 5DMK2, EF 17-40mm f/4 L, ISO 400
  9. Canon T2i / 17-55mm 1600 ASA @2.8

  11. All the best for the new year.
    My niece has a group exhibit in the south of Holland (Oerle, Veldhoven) till the 1st of januari.
    I went down there yesterday to take a few snaps..
    These people open their house and garden for this event. First one is my niece Mayke with her installation. next one is a pinecone with a ribbon, but the carpet belongs to another artwork. I still don;t get the pinecone with ribbon , but they were all over the place. 3rd one the trees.
    Have to look up who the artists of the other works are. There were 16 artist exhibiting.
    So more to come. On their website you can find some pix i took last year.
  12. Pinecone
  13. Doesn't seem like another year has passed. It was fun to look back, Nathan. Thanks for posting the link. It has been a good year. Thank you all for providing inspiration to keep improving. I look forward to seeing your photos each Thursday and am rewarded with a visual feast for the eyes.
    Seeing Gil's cat reminded me of a recent photo when I was testing a new 24-70 f/2.8L II. Someone on another forum humorously quipped this lens was so sharp, Canon should issue a BAND-AID® with it. I can't disagree. It is nearly prime sharp across the zoom range even when used wide open. The downsized image here does it little justice.
  14. Happy Christmas everyone.
    I've just started getting orders for images shot on film, something over a year after going back to film photography.
    My first publication is a "Big Picture" item published in a newspaper and comes from the first roll of colour film I pushed through the camera. I've added the shot for rating on PN and it's interesting to see how it's done here.
    EOS-1+100-40, f8, ~400 mm, ~1/1000, Fujifilm Supra 200
  15. This was taken last summer but sat waiting for a snowy day. Taken with an IR converted XSI. Happy New Year to all.
  16. here's a shot from a Pueblo in New Mexico, taken in late October.
    "Keep shooting, my friends"
  17. I'm surprised I'm the first person to post up a Christmas dinner shot.

    You are not. Jeff Spirer had one, but for some reason he completely deleted it. He has that editing power. You and I don't.
  19. My apologies to Jeff and everyone. I am responding to too many posts and am losing my mind. Jeff's photo which is pretty similar to yours, Kayam is here:
  20. Sunday before Christmas.
  21. Trying to catch the first flakes of the blizzard. As soon as I got outside, the snow let up until I went back inside. Bashful clouds, I suppose.
  22. Part of a dismantled dock with just enough snow to give us a white Christmas. 5D Mk2 70-200 2.8L 1/400 f/9.0 ISO 400

  27. Haven't been out much the past week or two - mostly family photos recently, so I'm posting shots that are a couple of weeks old. This male Northern Cardinal was very cooperative , probably because there was a feeder between him and me. Shot with Canon 7D, EF 70-300mm L IS at ISO 200 at f 5.6 and 1/200. Had to crop in quite a bit to get the image I wanted, but I'm accustomed to that.
  28. I liked the light on this Woodpecker, which I believe is a Male Downy, though I have a hard time telling the difference between the Downy and the Hairy. Canon 7D, EF 70-300 L IS, ISO 100, f 5.6 at 1/160.
  29. This is an irruption year for Canadian birds showing up here in Central Ohio for the Winter. Of the birds that have been spotted around here, the only ones I have captured so far are the Red-breasted Nuthatches, and this is my favorite shot so far, at a feeder in a local park. Canon 7D, EF 70-300mm L IS, ISO 400 f 5.6 at 1/125.
  30. Fortunate to have spent a wonderful Christmas with friends and family - wishing everyone a Happy New year....
  31. Xmas in San Diego
  32. I don't get to post very often, but I'm on vacation with the in-laws in Colorado this week.
  33. Happy Holidays to all!
    And a safe and Happy New Year!
    I'm in a recovery mode for a while with my right arm in a cast so the only way to trip the shutter is by holding the remote....
