Canon Thursday Pic 2010: #11

Discussion in 'Canon EOS' started by joshroot, Nov 3, 2010.

  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!​
    Look at that, for the second week in a row, over 100 posts in last week's Thursday thread. Well done everyone! But there's a sad note as well, this will be my last week starting the Thursday threads (at least until the next person gets sick of it). Next week there will be a brand new face welcoming you each week. And if you are really REALLY lucky, they won't make you look at photos of their kids every week.

    I, however, will make you do that. I had the Lensbaby Composer on my camera because I'm writing a 'gadgets & gizmos' article about the close-up lenses for it. So I thought I'd take a few photos of my kid and his grandma. If you like kids and blurry toy-camera images, you'll like the photo. If you don't...well you can just cram it. Canon T1i Lensbaby Composer Double-Glass optic.

    As for the rest of you, let's see what you've got.

    Your kid in 18 years...
  3. I didn't get much photography done this week. So I am recycling a Halloween photo of my son from last year. He was paying his respects to Michael Jackson who had passed away recently.
    40d, 17mm, f8, ISO 200

  5. This past Sunday morning, I went out looking for a bald eagle that has been seen on occasion in a local park. The eagle wasn't there, but the light was nice, and I drove past this beautifully landscaped farm.
    Canon EOS 50D with EF20mm f2.8 ISO 100, 1/50 at f 7.1
  6. I'm actually early this time. :D
  7. This week gave lots of pictures, I even have hard time choosing which picture should go to the thread. I was walking in the 'far north wooded park' as Ken put it. It happens the park is just across the road from my home. And I met this funny doggy who was interested in two things: to fetch the ball his master has thrown and understand what I, a stranger to him, was doing. (7D, 70-200/4 L IS@200, ISO 800, 1/250, f/8.0)
  8. I guess its time to say farewell to the fall colors up here in the Pacific Northwest.. Most of the leaves in my area are laying on the ground, but I did manage to find one last decent photo opportunity
  9. This week for me was a trip around my garden, found these purple mushrooms. They have not be enhanced in the colour,it really was this purple....anyone an expert and tell me what kind it is?
  10. Cosplay kid.
    f/2.8, 1/250, ISO 200
  11. Not much fall color this year so I thought I would focus in on just a few closeups. Here I'm using a Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 lens on the 7D with a Bower Adapter.
  12. “The Force is strong with this one.”
    5d M1 and sigma 50 1.4
  13. Anyone knows the name of this caterpillar please, never seen one like it.
  14. Another thread here, in a different forum, inspired me to go back to a familiar place to shoot a familiar scene, yet again. However, this time, the light looked a little better than it usually does and I was very pleased with the results. (Thanks for the inspiration, Walter!) Josh, you nailed the Lensbaby pic!
  15. I had the pleasure this week of being the photographer for the Enfield Dog Park's Dogtober Fest. This event is put on each October to raise money to build a dog park here in my home town. The Committee in charge is doing this all on their own in order to pay for the dog park with NO expense to the tax payers in town. They have vendors come in, demonstrations by the local police department and local dog training facilities, contests and of course pet portraits! I was there for 6 hours taking pet portraits and all the money raised from the session fee ($5.00 each) went straight to the dog park! I had a great time meeting new people and furry friends as well.
    This little guy was just too cute, his name is Thor. He is a Chihuahua, Italian Greyhound, Pit Bull mix (yeah I didn't know what to say about that either LOL).
  16. Not too much photography going on this week. Spring has sprung in South America so yard work and planting flowers has taken up a lot of time this week. Here's a quick shot of a spider on the leaf of a lemon tree. Some crop in Picasso 3.
  17. My favorite of getting ready for Halloween! Waiting for facepaint to be applied...
  18. Yet more fall color...
  19. Been experimenting some more of late. Both with doing closeups with a telephoto to create a small DOF, and with Elements to combine photos. Got it done, but my brain hurts!
    And for the record, that EF-S 50-250 is one hell of a lens for the money.
  20. There was a rustle in the night and my torch shown upon this specter of Halloween. It is in fact my son modeling his wears for this annual event before going out to stuff his bucket with sugary fare. (@ 38mm, ISO 640, f/5 @ 1/250sec)
  21. drink fountain. frightens all the kids!to josh... thank you very much for your help.. work on. pn. will miss the kids photos...aaaaaahhhh.
  22. Wrecked bulk carrier on the beach in Anguilla.

  26. Canon 40D, Tamron 28-75 f/2.8, camera shake was unintentional but created an interesting 3D effect on the carving. Taken this past Sunday.
  27. A bench in Harvard's Arnold Arboretum. I swear I did not touch the saturation!
  28. EOS 450D & EF-S 60 mm at f/8
  29. Oxen staining to pull 4500 lbs at Fair.
  30. I didn't have time to tarry here on Waterloo Bridge yesterday, which was also just the right time of the evening for that 'dusk light'. Snapped of a couple though, remembering this thread.
  31. Ticker Tape parade for the World Series Champions -- the San Francisco Giants
    Access to the parade route was difficult if you had a job and didn't have the day off. The baseball Giants winning it all in 2010 is one of the most spectacular pro sports success stories in decades.
  32. Some really nice stuff here! But, my favorites, . . .
    Dan F. Don't you wish you had found that Bald Eagle perched on one of those fence posts!
    Mark K. Great serene type mood!
    Kerri A's Pit Bull!
    Thom P. Great Zoo Tiger!
    Robin S. & Jeff P.'s More Autumn
    I too was out trying to capture the few Autumn colors we have left when this young lady crossed my path.

  34. Believe DRI typically stands for Dynamic Range Increase -- not to be confused with HDR -- but in Russell Brown's faux-HDR tutorial this TLA is an abbreviation of Dynamic Raw Imaging = single RAW file processed once in ACR. From what I've gathered, images that are too contrasty yet retain details in both highlights and shadows render themselves best to this treatment, thus providing a method of saving them without the hassle of multi-RAW processing, notwithstanding that this "unusual and bizarre / wild and wacky" look (as the author describes it ;) is not everyone's cup of tea. If interested, you can find a fill-size version of my submission here.
  35. Mount Niorquay, Edith and Louis from Samson's Peak. There is a popular Gondola runs up the Peak from Banff but I never take it as i like to walk (it is only 1-1.5 hours up). This was taken on Saturday at about 3:40pm.
  36. Mount Norquay, Edith and Louis from Samson's Peak. There is a popular Gondola runs up the Peak from Banff but I never take it as i like to walk (it is only 1-1.5 hours up). This was taken on Saturday at about 3:40pm.
  37. My weekend was spent on the soccer fields, so that's what I've got today!
  38. The kid next door just about to disappear down a rabbit hole. 5D2, 24-70mm, 1/40th sec handheld, ISO 200, @ f5
  39. I shot a wedding on Halloween with a Halloween theme of course as that is the brides favorite day of the year. 5D Mk2 Sigma 24-70 580ex ll
  40. I'm always blown away by how many great shots show up here! I especially appreciate all the fall color shots, as here in So. California, we don't see too much of that. A few others that particularly caught my attention -
    Luop's acorns - beautiful! The oaks in my neighborhood don't produce anything so pretty.
    Vladimir - the dog that thinks he's a leopard, very funny!
    David S - back lit leaf, liked it a lot.
    Dan P. - Princess Leah, made me laugh.
    Dean S. - close up of the guitarist, great expression.
    Ken P - great colors, like the silouhette. Congrats to the Giants!
    David Wu - flapping wings - for whatever reason, also made me chuckle.
    Thanks everyone!
  41. Browser Lockup here it is.
  42. These two, my nephew and niece, are so hyper that keeping them standing still in one place, together, pointed in the same direction, w/out making monkey faces, is practically impossible. I gave up after a while and just took what they would allow.
    Canon 40D, EFS17-55, Av:f4, 1/250, Exp Comp. +1/2, Flash Exp. Comp –1/2,
  43. Found this Mantis by my front door. Taken a couple weeks ago with a 40D and a 50mm/1.8 on extension tubes.
  44. Autumn colors at their peak. 1D MK IV Canon 500L f/4 IS Lens.
  45. This is the time of bw photography because of the gray sky, rain and low lightning conditions. So I tried to take a dull picture to celebrate that.(1d IIN, 17-40/4)
  46. I was out trying to get the last of the fall colours (Saigeon Trail Richmond Hill Ontario) when I found these dried out wild flowers. I was pleasantly surprised that I as able to use a low depth of field to give the background a water colour effect.
    Taken with Canon EOS 50D with Contax Planar 50mm F1.7 at F4
  47. Saturday morning football after Friday night rain = Mud Bowl 2010. Taken with 1d Mark IV, 300mm L f/2.8 at f/5.6 1/1000.
  48. My daughter likes photography. She's shooting me with a 40D and 24-70 f/2.8L. The picture was shot with 5DII and 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II.
  49. Hello everybody, here "red leafs" from our street.
  50. Didn't really get a chance to look thru the pics this weeks but will later. Here's my pic of the week. Something I spotted in Eureka Springs Arkansas on vacation last week. Simple....
  51. I'm a little late to the party, but it's still Thursday for a few more hours.
    I had alot of fun shooting this football game for a few reasons. First off, the lighting is above average as HS football fields go. The teams , while not up there in the win's column, were very competitive, which made for great shooting opportunities.
    So here's my post... and oh yeah...Canon 1d Mk IV with EF 300mm f2.8 IS
  52. Taken two weeks ago at a cemetery in Dexter, MI. Canon EOS Elan II, 28-105 USM lens, Fuji 400 film.
  53. One Proud Fungus
    I liked this one's classic form. I was shooting a different type of mushroom, dropped my remote control, and looked down to see this one growing under my chin.
    Canon 7D, Mamiya/Sekor M42 60mm macro f2.8 @ f11, .5 sec, ISO 100
  54. Here's mine. Sorry I've been AWOL for a few weeks on this thread ;-)
  55. Late this week as I was troubleshooting a web site issue for hours (ugh). Here's a tight crop from a shoot of some Dia De Los Muertos dancers in San Jose this Halloween day.
    Canon 5D Mk II, 24-70 f/2.8L at 70mm, 1/800 at f/4, ISO 100, and a fortuitous reflective water puddle.
  56. Let's retry this upload, taken while walking in Eureka Springs, AK

    But things are better now
  60. Didn't get a chance to shoot this week, but my project for today is replace the light seals on my Olympus 35 RC rangefinder.

  64. [​IMG]
    A cold morning with a lot of light.
    I was particularly pleased with the reflected light on the right hand side - using hidden buildings to bounce diffused natural light onto shadowed surfaces.
  65. I've been waiting to hopefully post a shot that I took this week, but I've been so busy that I haven't shot anything yet. So for the sake of posting to this thread, I'll reach back in the HD of my laptop and find something.
    I took this shot of Bonanza over the summer. I liked the way the light hit her from the side and illuminated her tail, but she really hates it when I shoot her from the front; she says its not very flattering of her figure.
