Canon Thursday Pic 2010: #12

Discussion in 'Canon EOS' started by nathangardner, Nov 10, 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!​
    Alright Canon Community, Mr. Root has enough confidence in me to put the weight of the weekly phenomenon known as the Canon Thursday Pic on my shoulders. My Dad hardly had the confidence to let me mow the lawn so I'll try my hardest not to screw this up.
    I took this photo earlier this summer of my sister-in-law's new Chocolate Lab, Ollie. This was just one of many I shot that day, and thanks to digital I could shoot off a hundred or so with no worries. Hopefully this "family related" photo will cause for a smooth passing of the torch, with this marking my first week as your new Thursday Pic starter. Can't wait to see all the photos.
    Oh, and also, we went two weeks straight of over 100 posts, but we slacked off a little last week. Let's try to get into the triple digits again this week and show the Nikonistas who's the boss.
  2. EOS 450D & EF-S 60mm Macro f/2.8
  3. Hard to stay serious: Girls in Vocaloid cosplays.
    f/2.2, 1/250, ISO 400
  4. EOS 40D | EF 100-300 f/4-5.6 USM | 1/800th | f/10 | ISO 400
  5. Good Luck, Nathan!
    Canon 7D, Tamrom SP 90mm f/2.8 Macro, ISO 400
  6. Nathan, nice shot of the lab. Ervin, excellent portrait! Bueh, I need to go shooting with you some day. Lupo, if I had a son, I'd be quite honored if he was just like you.
    I didn't shoot a lot this past week. Too busy with other matters. Did manage to throw the lens up at this pigeon putting the brakes on.
  7. Dress rehearsal, school play.
  8. Sorry, no pictures this week, it was a hell of a week. So the picture from the last one. (7D, 100/2.8L IS Macro, ISO 640, 1/125, f/4.5)
  9. Canon 5D2, Contax Zeiss 50/1.4 Planar, ISO 3200, 1/8 sec, about f1.7
  10. Nothing extra special this week. I have a busy weekend coming up though! I took this shot yesterday while waiting for the bus with my boys to arrive. Just loved how the leaf matched the stone and the amount of texture it showed.
  11. can did camera
  12. can did camera no2
  13. My daughter and I were shooting at the butterfly exhibit at Boston's Museum of Science. 5D2 and 100mm L macro at f/3.2. Handheld and no flash at ISO 1600. I'm constantly amazed at the low light performance of the 5D2.
    Pretty sure this was her shot. She's 11.
  14. can did camera no2 again.
  15. An early start here, let's help Nathan out here. This is just a walkabout shot back in Eureka Springs, AK.
  16. I wasn't able to get out and shoot this past week, so this is another autumn shot from a couple of weekends ago. The wind has blown the leaves off most of the trees now, so I think this was my last opportunity to capture the fall color.
  17. Some of 10,000 Buddhas. Carmel, NY
  18. Saw this feather floating about, the poor host was in several parts but hey as least it left a legacy of a nice pic, converted it to B&W and bumped the contrast.
  19. My Veterans day tribute.

    this woodpecker was more interested in building up it's winter stash than me getting fairly close for a few shots
  21. Best of luck Nathan, I am sure you will do fine. Best wishes to a speedy recovery of your father Lupo. Wonderful Images everyone. Maybe we can get back over the 100 mark this week. Here is my entry, still working on what ever color I can find this fall in Northern California. This capture is more about form and light than color though. EOS 50D, EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
  22. Turning leaves in the Old Jewish Cemetery, Prague. Canon EOS 5D MkII, 24-105 f/4 L IS USM, 400 ISO.

  26. From last Sunday evening just before the seemingly early sunset! (Daylight Saving Time!)

  29. Great shots this week of the fall colors. Because youth football is drawing towards an end, I thought I would post another shot from last week's Mud Bowl. Canon 1d Mark IV, 300 L f/2.8 at ISO 100, f/4.5 1/640.

  34. Sitting in my backyard, I did some experimentation with my new lens. Not a birder, but like hummingbirds. Canon 7d EF 70-200mm f 4 IS USM + 1.4x telextender. 1/160 f 10 ISO 500. Good luck Nathan. Great pics here.

  37. From a tour of of a private auto collection 5D Mk2 ISO 3200 Sigma 24-70 1/100 f/5 24mm Lightroom 3.2 did a fantastic job of dealing with the noise of the high ISO.
  38. A father-daughter moment from a family portrait shoot in San Jose a few weeks back:
    Canon 5D Mk II, 24-70 f/2.8L at 70mm, f/4 at 1/320, ISO 100.
  39. And it's thursday again. Someone stole my week!
    Was out yesterday as part of the Help portrait initiative which is photographers using their time, skill and equipment to give portraits to those who cannot afford something so simple.
    we were out a safe house or haven for children who are handicapped and or removed from abusive households. It amazes me how resilient children can be. For obvious reasons I cannot post any of their photos, but this was a fellow photo helping me on that day chimping away.

  44. Please delete this particular posting. I got an error message~ after about 2 minutes of waiting ~ and then a Warning ~ with no chance or option to upload an image .....

  48. Rain Saturday night, left nice drops on the roses the next morning.
  49. Some days you are the osprey....some days you are the fish.
  50. Last Sunday, 5D, 55mm of EF 24-105, ISO 100, F5.6, 1/400
  51. Took this picture a couple weeks ago, about ten minutes after I unboxed my new 7D. My daughter's cat.
  52. Taken last Saturday in natural park Sant LLorenç del Munt i l'Obac in Catalonia, Spain: [​IMG]
    Actually my mirror dropped out in my 5D this day so I had to guess compositions and focus and expose manually, but it worked out fine most of time. This one was taken with a Sigma 20mm at f/22 near the shortest focus distance and self-timer against shake (1.3 sec exposure at ISO 400)
  53. Is the third time a charm? Trying one more time.
    My daughter's cat. Taken about ten minutes after unboxing my new 7D.
  54. Playing with low depth of field with my Contax Planar 50mm F1.7 @ F2 on EOS 50D
    I had my arm leaning on the tree while taking the photo which kind of reminds me of painting with water colours. Location Saigeon Trail Richmond Hill Ontario.
  55. Hi guys, this is mine for today. My ever ready model, when I do not have time to go out.
    Good luck Nathan.
    Direct flash, 1D Mark3, 24-70/2.8.
  56. Dan, that picture looks more like you took it with a Zeiz lens than a canon. Great shot !
  57. Good Luck Nathan! I am sure you will do a wonderful job. If you still feel bad about your dad's lack of confidence in you, and if it makes you feel any better, you may help me with my lawn at any time :)
    I was asked by my Brother In Law to take photographs at his wedding last week. I was amazed at all the invaluable information I could find at this site. Many thanks to all the contributors, I was able to get some good shots. While I am still processing them, here is one that I like despite the reflection of my umbrella in my BIL's glasses.
    40d, 50mm, f5.6, ISO 400
  58. Wow, just so many amazing photos this week. Off to a great start, Nathan!
    More soccer for me - luckily the sun came out at the end of the game.
  59. I need to start posting more. Everyone has great images! We've been working on some lighting issues in our "studio" the last couple of days - here is one from last weekend.
  60. I was out for a walk and saw this old man and probably his caretaker. So I stalked for a while before taking this photo. I didn't have a long lens so this was cropped badly.

  61. Hello Canon Folk and good luck Nathan on your new responsibility. You seem to be doing just fine. It's my first time posting an image and I wanted to share this pic I took this past Saturday night. It's a view of downtown L.A. off of 4th St for you locals.

  63. From Thursday Nights Show in Princeton at the Alchemist and Barrister, Wayne and Deb from Black Cat Habitat. Canon 40D. Fresh off the Compact Flash.
  64. The other day I downloaded a trial version of PhotoAcute (looks like a powerful software, btw) and played a bit with it. Here I combined multiple RAW exposures into a single .dng file, which I then run through Qtpfsgui; here's the larger version of The Secret Garden below. The ugly watermarks are because it's a trail version.
  65. Got back Wednesday from a trip to Mountain Lake Virginia. Here is a picture of my friends parents walking down a road at the Biological Station where years ago he was the director. Jim now has advanced Alzheimer's and is non verbal.
  66. Lots of wonderful shots this week. Here's mine:
    7D with EF 500mm f/4L IS, AV mode at f/5.6, ISO 400, +1/3EV resulting in 1/100th second on an Induro C414 tripod, with an Arca-Swiss Z1 ballhead and Wimberley Sidekick.
  67. Here's another Osprey with meal. Pelican Island Impoundment trail.
  68. On Veterans Day I usually take advantage of the day off and do some sort of photo/wine excursion. Yesterday was no exception. This is at Goldeneye winery and the Confluence vineyard (pinot noir) in the background. This is in the heart of Mendocino County.
    I took photos with the 7D (another Error-30) and the EOS-3 all day -- out the Russian River, and north up the Sonoma and Mendocino coasts. Perfect weather!
  69. Was at the San Diego Zoo recently.
  70. Well, no more excuses- I should finally have time to get out and shoot (and make regular submissions :)
  71. Canon 50D, EFS 17-85 f/4-5.6 IS USM, 1/250 @ f/10, ISO 320
  72. I was in Helsinki this week (did not have much chance for photos) but here is a dawn shot.
  73. I hope it's all right if I post a picture a camera from the "Other Brand", but I just got it and was playing with some lights. Vivitar 3900 through diffuser above camera, Powershot G3 built in flash at camera left @ 2/3 power.
    Canon XTi, 10s @ f/10, 18-55 IS @ 55, ISO 100
  74. Canon 7D, Sima 50-500 @ 500 mm, ISO 800, F6.3, 1/25 Sec
  75. I hope I have finally figured this out. Been having trouble sizing the photo.
    Congrats on the nice shot of the Lab! Here is my shot of a Spitfire on Takeoff last week
  76. Umm Joel, please excuse me correcting you, but that is a Hurricane. The other stalwart of the battle of Britain.
  77. It seems this must be the week of "photographing the enemy." The Nikon POW thread has quite a few shots of Canons. Lots of great shots here and the site hasn't burned down yet so guess I did alright for this week. Thanks to everyone for all the good luck wishes. Now let's see some more photos.
  78. Thanks to Wayne and Mark! Now I need to change my Warbirds porfolio too..
  79. OK -- it's late to comment by my standards for this Thursday cycle.

    My quick hits on several EOS photos that especially caught my eye for one reason or another (maybe good or bad?)
    86 responses... 86? Not that many. A lot of shy EOS people I guess. Darn.

    Nathan G - dog shaking water - perfect.
    Bueh - I've no idea was 'cos' is, but you always deliver interesting colorific shots.
    Mike D - my favorite portrait of yours the past many weeks, wow! (Beastie Boys Mike D in da house, yo!)
    Dan F. - cliche byt superb fall colors above that fence.
    Robin - Buddha's lie a spine down that diagonal. Excellent.
    DL A. - Wow oh wow! Tree/form/color. Like a fantasy.
    Dean - B&W guitar player - well done.
    Roger E - hummingbird close-up. :)
    David R - that tooth does it for me.
    Lalit - foggy landscape perfection, nicely framed too.
    Nick D - Mr. Stubbs the cat! Old grumpy puss!
    Rob B - again, just a few colors and that walk-by of the ped past the ad. Love it. Any explanation? This isn't a No Words forum.
    Rafael - LA City of Lights. Too cool man.
    Tomek - you nailed it, exotic looking HDR stuff. Surreal. Haunting. Psychedelic.

    Thanks again Nathan!
    Cheers, Ken
  80. Ken,
    Absolut transformed at least one bus stop downtown Chicago recently for an ad campaign. There might be others but I happened upon this one during my walk. I stood across the street for a couple minutes (pedestrian traffic was light for some reason). I've got another one with a person on the other side which might be a bit more balanced but the photo was soft due to some camera shake on my part. (Trying to get the pedestrians to blur with a lens lacking IS isn't all that easy it turns out.) Thanks for the comment.
    Edit: ah, apparently there are three shelters:
  81. Thanks for the link Rob -- that is some cool ad campaign, costs a pretty penny.
