SculptedPhotography: The 5D was and is my first digital camera. It has served me with spectacular results. It's main minus for me has been its inability to use the higher ISO's, as anything higher than 200 produces visible grain in images that I print very large on my epson 24" printer. I almost always shoot with a monopod to assure the results.Technology has changed and improved and I am searching for a replacement. I am invested in excellent Canon lenses and want to stay with Canon. I also want a camera that is not as heavy as my 5D (I am old and am fatigued by the weight of the 5D which I affectionately call "my brick".) Price is an issue too. Still casting about trying to find a replacement.
No, unfortunately you are not able to shot video, neither by installing Magic Lantern (because the camera is not equipped with live view).
vratnik: how did you calculate 1024 x 768 pixels as 2.3M dots ?
(1024 x 768) x 3 (the number of RGB channels) = 2.3M pixels approximatively
You're great: when it comes to steam trains, you win hands down! :)Congratulations!
This shot was the best: you should have won...
I am speechless... Perfect illusion!Many congratulations!
Cheating or not, I'd prefer the original image... Why the sky shouldn't be interesting? It doesn't sound flat or imbalanced at all!
Where is bokeh?!
Nice pic, but:- blue sky? mmh, the reflection in the window is still a very marginal element, not a protagonist as the title of the contest asked for...;- red bricks?! Not at all. A brick is "a block, or a single unit of a CERAMIC material" (Wikipedia). These are blocks of painted (?) sandstone... Sorry, but in my opinion your photo had to be disqualified...
Definitely I agree with Jan2009...Great!
I was told that the burger did bad for your health... :)Absolutely great!
Good shot, but... 85mm @ f/1.8 or wider?
Wonderful pic! The only limitation is that it reminds very little London...
E' forse il Passo delle Erbe?Splendida foto anche questa...
La Val di Funes in autunno è imbattibile... Complimenti!
Se, go' capit... Fom che la olta che la 'é publiche mia gnent, perché, se go de ardà i risultacc de la me foto e chele dei oter, le me gira sul le bale. I ma pasàt deant po' i cupiù del casso... Nif en po' tocc a dà vià'l cul...
olyflyer: "Extreme wide-angle shots lower than 20mm. Any image with a zoom point LOWER THAN 20MM !!!!!"
Very unclear rules, which we can see by the contributions as well. I know what you meant, but apparently there are many people who don't, or they don't care to follow the rules.
You should have stated that "Any image with a *FOCAL LENGTH* lower than 20mm (135 equivalent)" is what you want. 20mm on an APS or FourThirds is NOT extreme wide and on a P&S it is quite long. There are plenty images wich are taken with 18mm on APS, I even found a 29mm. Now, 18mm on APS is 27mm (1.5 crop factor) or 29mm (1.6 crop factor), or a huge 36mm on a FourThirds if 35mm equivalents are calculated.
So, go on, DQ all the ones which are not following the rules. My message to the voters: 0.5 to all those who are not following the rules, no matter how nice the image is.
I totally agree with olyflyer.
