Perhaps one of my favorite grab shots. Taken yesterday while on Noonmark. I was set up for this shot without the bird but just packed up because my DOF wasn't quite what I needed (i was using a ultrapod and needed more height). Anyway, this guy flys in turned the camera back on (Canon G3) which takes 3 seconds and fired away. Unfortunately my settings were not perfect but I still like the shot.





This is the whole range in vertical JPEG. Came out darn well for a handheld using the cameras built in pano mode and lots of care. I also shot quite a few in RAW which might turn out a bit better (more DR). Obviously this was mid day light so I'm not expecting much difference after the RAW conversions.



And if you're interested the big 4000pixel version without border...the original is 16,000 by 2200 pixels

I'm not into guns in the slightest, but those pics are really cool!

I'm guessing this one shouldn't need any introduction:

Heh. It would seem so! I particularly like that one since it proves that my hands are getting steadier - the shot was taken handheld at 27mm and no less than 1/2 a second!

Very cute!

I entered these three in a recent photo competition (Better Photography Magazine). Didn't win anything, but I like them anyway.







This last one probably needs a little explaining. It's the new Eleanor Schonell, or "Green" Bridge linking the University of Queensland to the other side of the Brisbane River. The little boat in the bottom corner is the now-redundant Dutton Park Ferry, and just visible under the main span of the bridge is the Dutton Park Cemetery. These kicked off the whole "past to present" theme I tried for here.

Hopefully the above pic will show.

It is a pic I took in a cafe at Cambridge University in pommy land. There is more to this pic than first meets the eye.

A few shots from our New York adventure...

Finally, a remarkably lazy pigeon - I watch this fellow proceed this way all the way down the flight of about 30 stairs.

The NY skyline will never look right to me without the WTC. The best view is/was on the BQE just before/after (south of) the Brooklyn Bridge. It made having to go across the Verazano and into New Jersey (the Garden State) bearable. I still haven't figured out where they keep the garden in jersey but it's by far the biggest craphole state we have in the US. I hope you weren't exposed to NJ in your adventure.

Nice shots though, I like the pigeon mid jump on the steps. The pano as usual is great.

A few from this week:

Thanks! Yours are, as usual, great as well. I especially like the last pair.

We did make a few forays into NJ. Rahway was, without a doubt, the most hick town I've ever visited. Rutgers University (in New Brunswick), on the other hand, is simply beautiful.

'Twas a fun visit. We've decided not to make the move there, though. Unfortunately, we decided this after Yang told me I could buy a 70-200 2.8IS and 2X teleconverter when we went back, and had safely gotten me out of the country. Now she knows how much cheaper they are there (at least $1000 less for the two of them), it's going to take me forever to convince her to let me get them here! Frown

Anyway, a couple of other panos I thought came out well.

Statue of Liberty - due to the strange perspective and wide angle, the stitching software blew her out to look positively obese. I used Photoshop's Warp function to put her on a diet.



St Paul's Chapel in Columbia University - I may not agree with their theology, but damn the catholics know architecture! This is stitched from four shots, handheld at 17mm.

It's odd how much cheaper stuff is in the US for some reason, and thats before taxes. I know the Brits on these boards are always complaining that the pay US dollar prices but with a pound sign. Essentially double.

On the flip side, until the dollar got really weak, and the US retailers closed the loophole, I used to be able to buy all my climbing equipment from Barrabes or other european retailers for 50% of US retail after tarriffs and shipping. And I found the canadian price was the same as the US in amount but after the exchange rate about 20% less. For me it paid for a weekend trip to Montreal, to go up, drop $500 on gear, spend a few nights and get my taxes back and then head home.

Of course now that the Canadian Peso (it's a joke) is rising as the dollar continues to become worthless, Canadian retail gear is again more than US gear prices.
