  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!​
    Well the weather has been disgusting here today and to top that off my Kentucky Wildcats just got beat, but have no fear, the Canon Picture of the Week is here! (cheers & whistles). If you live in the good ole U.S. of A. then today is Thanksgiving. If you don't live in the USA, then have a good day working and maintaining your current weight. If you're traveling this Thanksgiving weekend, then most of all be safe, and hopefully you have a computer handy so you can post your Canon photo.
    I like to post a photo for the thread that I have taken during the previous week. Well pickens were slim this week, I took two photos this week. And that's only because I couldn't lift my finger from the shutter button before the camera fired the second shot. I set out a suet feeder about 200 feet behind the house last week and I walked back the other day to see if it had been visited. I took my camera just in case somethig crazy happened. Well, nothing crazy happened, but our horses were all standing together with a dramatic cloudy sky behind them so I turned their way to snap a shot...and here it is.

  3. My post for this week
  4. Took a trip to the Charlotte International Auto Show this week. This is a Ferrari 458 Italia, view of right taillight. Some quick numbers, it makes around 590 BHP, does 0-62 in 3.35 seconds, and costs $261,968 (actual sticker price for this one). Gran Turismo 5 was also released yesterday for PS3, what a week for cars. Shot with 40D and 50mm 1.8, 1/100th, f2.2 ISO1600

  6. Saw these dew drops on a trip around the garden, last of the colour this Autumn...we are in for a cold snap here on the south coast of the uk. Might even snow which is pretty rare down here.
    Anyway I like the colour and thought it looked like a crown full of jewels.
  7. As so often... a cosplay kid.
    f/2.2, 1/125, ISO 400
  8. My dog found this strange looking bug a few days ago. It flew out of sight, but I found it again. Anyway, I think this is the best shot I got of it.
  9. Hm... Horses. So let it be more horses. (7D, Tamron 17-50/2.8@39, ISO 3200, 1/60, f/4.0)

  11. You folks are some early birds this week, perhaps up and starting food for the BIG Thanks Giving feast. I hope no one is eating alone today. Well enough of that, here's a pic of a Potter lowering his monthly clay delivery into his basement studio via a rope and a board. He did have someone at the bottom to unload it. An Arkansas elevator...............
  12. I spent countless hours this past summer and early fall stalking the great blue herons and great egrets at the local wetlands park. Though I did get some good shots, most of the heron shots were at some distance, and when in flight, flying away. I returned this past Sunday to the wetlands mostly to kill a little time, hoping to maybe see a few mallards if I was lucky, knowing that at least most of the herons had migrated south. Fortunately I was prepared when this lone heron came flying towards me, and I got off a burst of shots, most of which turned out pretty nicely. Couldn't really pick a favorite, but here is one of them. I also got several shots of him standing on the shore within twenty or thirty feet, and another burst when he flew away. I thought it rather ironic that my best great blue heron shots of the year came on a day that I didn't even expect to see one.
  13. 5D2, Contax Zeiss 50/1.4 Planar, about f2 at 1/40.
  14. EOS 7D, 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II
  15. Hi All,
    Great photos, keep it up :)
    This is an old shot, but all I had available for today.
    Best regards, John.

  18. Hope your holiday is a wonderful one.
    This is a combination of three photos I was playing with one day hoping to create something. Wasn't sure where I was going with it.
  19. I see you Canon guys are copying Nikon (again).
  20. it


    go take some pictures buddy
  21. Just a run of the mill shot...literally. They were demonstrating how to grind corn. I shot this one while the millers were taking a break.
  22. No Thanksgiving, no horses, but we got some cold mornings here
  23. Hey Mark I shoot using both Canon and Nikon equipment. Sometimes at the same time (Canon body and Nikon lens) which also means I get to contribute to Wednesday and Thursday pics. Allegiance to one camera system or another is like what Einstein said about Nationalism ' infantile disease'.
  24. Got up early last Saturday to get some pre-dawn light. Was walking around and I saw this model in a shop window. Not crazy about the bullseye effect of the composition, but the shop window was too dark to get anything else.
  25. While hunting in central Washington last week I was presented with the question, shoot or shoot?
  26. I see you Canon guys are copying Nikon (again).​
    And it looks as if you like it, welcome back any time, next week there will be another one.

  30. Happy Thanksgiving everyone (in America). We drove up to Big Trees, California yesterday. This is one of the absolutely amazing things about California - you can drive from a nice Autumn day to the middle of Winter in under two hours. 1d Mark IV, 70-200mm L f/2.8.
  31. Very good pics this week (as always!). Couldn't resist to express MHO on some:
    @ Jeff - Very good capture of the moment rightfully in B&W
    @ David - Wow the combination of Ferrari, Photographer, 40D and our humble 50 1.8 lens worked very well!
    @ DS - What a colorful creature and awesome macro.
    @ Ian - Composition, colors, choice of focal length all worked very well
    @ Kayam - You hit the bull's eye with this shot!
    Here is my contribution to this week's forum from a female mallard in a local wild life sanctuary; taken in a crispy Fall morning:
  32. This is capture is from the only Canon I own.

  33. I am glad I found this group. Good stuff everyone. I shot a women's college basketball game this past week. There were a number of shots I liked but decided to share this one. Shot with an EOS xti.
  34. Great Photos here this week, always fun looking at them all - Happy Thanksgiving - Let's give Thanks for Canon Photo Thursday and all other blessings in our lives. :)

  35. I had an hour to kill near this freshly tilled field and decided to take a couple of shots of the patterns made by the tractor/tiller. Canon D60, Tamron 24-135, f11, 1/500, ISO 400.
  36. Crab boat on Thanksgiving eve.
  37. Wow! Do my eyes deceive, or did the quality of work this week take a big jump? Nice work all, and Happy Thanksgiving.
    This was taken down at the Fitzgerald Reserve by Half Moon Bay two Saturdays ago.
    5D2, Tokina 150-500 @ ~ 300, f ?, 1/25 sec, ISO 1600
  38. Greetings all. Loving what I'm seeing so far this week.
    From my side was killing some time before meeting a friend for lunch on the weekend. My 1st time playing with a polariser. I chose this pic because I love the symbolism of new life coming from that which is dead.
  39. Not much to say about the background of the Rapport picture: straight on-camera flash, unfortunately, but I was too far for any diffuser to work, and I wanted to keep the distance so that not to interrupt the moment of connection with my presence.
  40. Thanksgiving 2010
  41. 5D 105mm of EF 24-105, F4.0, 50mm, ISO 400
  42. In the spirit of coming holidays a huge Christmas tree was installed on town square on Monday. I caught it with a "celestial" decoration on Tuesday morning. Later on Sunday this week all the true lights are lit on tree and on streets and the Xmas season starts, the commercial part anyway. 5D 70-200/2,8 ISII

  58. Well... Trying to beat the deadline after a two week forced absence (Error 403). A picture from about 6 weeks ago. This Cattle Egret seemed quite stately in the tree top.
