If it took you 15 shots to get it, you got off easy! Nice work, great use of panning!
This is great, definitely had me thinking I was looking at a sunken ship
boyzo: I use the Lightroom FB plugin to upload images will I get the Hi RES adavntages ??
The LR plugin (both the in-box and Jeffrey Friedl's excellent plugin) has a resize option. I'm not sure what happens if resize is off - I've set it to the maxiumum Facebook dimensions as they progressed (604, then 720, then 960, now 2048). It's a bit annoying that my old photos are stuck at their smaller sizes...
russbarnes: Where is this 5DMKIII "low light king" blah blah blah? So much for lower resolution being cleaner - it's obvious the sensor is old tech now and shows nominal to no improvement over the MKII. No comparison to the D800 - it's light years ahead. The only improvement is JPEG noise reduction, whoopee doo, problem is most serious photographers don't use JPEG. MKII owners should be very happy indeed because there's nothing to upgrade for here at that ridiculous premium...in fact I'm expecting the MKII price to start increasing across the board because it looks like a bargain now.
In RAW, at 12800 and up, do you honestly not see a difference?
I was also really impressed with how well the 5D2 held its ground in the studio comparison. I would say that only at iso 12800 did the 5D3 pull ahead on image quality. The D800's resolution is impressive, but as the ISO's got higher, I thought the 5D3 was cleaner. Sometimes the D800 image would look like an upsampled 5D3 image. Great to see Canon still pushing the ISO envelope! For me, this will likely be the upgrade from my 5DI (I prefer "classic")
As a Canon shooter who was somewhat dismayed by the price of the 5d3, I must say I find this news absolutely hilarious!
Great shot, I love the ones where I have no idea how they did it :)
Anyone who has photographed fire knows it's about more than just being there :) Great shot!
Love the color palette!
Good advice overall, but the big picture isn't about some rule or even the golden section, but about understanding the elements of visual design and their relationships. As of late, I'm finally breaking free from the rule of thirds. After being told repeatedly to place the subject of interest on the intersections of the thirds, that is how I would compose and crop my images. Now that I'm more confident, I can allow myself to break the rules, which often results in a more natural, less contrived image.
Very cool Auto-Focus highlighting features! I want that on my Canon!
Great! I know from experience these are tough shots due to natural lack of contrast in the scene.@klas77: this kind of effect is often done in Photoshop with Radial Blur in Zoom mode.
