pheanix300: Awesome detail and bokeh. Congrats on a well deserved 1st place!

Thank You. I didn't enter it, but I used the Tamron 150-600 for this shot. I think the Bokeh is very good using this lens.

cmantx: If Ansel Adams saw this image I think he would be impressed. I love the little waterfall and the perspective/composition of the scene.

That's true,but your image may inspire someone that has never been to go see it for themselves.
Not everyone that has gone to Yosemite Valley has come away with an image this stunning. I hope your're happy with it.

ysal: This one is spectacular, would be a first place winner anywhere unless there is an amazing Yosemite photo to compete against ;-)

Thanks Yuki. No dishonor in finishing second. It received 9, 5 star votes. So no matter if it got lower votes also, 9 people loved the shot. I'm happy about that.

Thank You, Ed. That is the same hummingbird. He's been around since late August when the migration started. He guards the feeder from 2 other hummingbirds.

Great job with the eyes of the fly. It has to be viewed large (non thumbnail)to really be appreciated.

Thank You, Mick. I hadn't noticed that until you mentioned it. I'd say it's the bokeh and sharpness of the lens. The background is a fig tree. The leaves were changing to yellow. It's about 15 ft behind the hummingbird.

Nice shot, you really tamed that bad light. Did you use fill flash?

Nice shot. Great lighting. I like how the tree line narrows in the center of the frame. That really caught my eye.

On Sony Alpha 77 II firmware update improves AF speed article (153 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gary Dean Mercer Clark: What EVF lag? Been shooting with A77 and now A77mk 2 and find NO slow down with it. I turn off image review and it shoots just like an OVF. The A77 Mk 2 is the fastest and most versatile camera I've shot with hands down. It might edge out the 7D mk2---but who cares which camera gets bragging rights as fastest? I don't. Both cameras are stellar. My fellow pro buddies shoot Canon 7DMk 2 and I shoot Sony. Let's be honest---these cameras are amazing and make shooting moving subjects a pleasure. Like to see unbiased reviews and real objective focus and speed tests, but the A77mk2 depending on how you choose to shoot high speed action, type of lens, third party or not, screw drive versus hypersonic lens, is going to give you stellar results. There is no limitation for magazine work, double spread photos with either camera. Just be honest. The EVF is fantastic. May not be someone's cup of tea, but I love it. These claims of a lag with EVF as unsubstantiated. The original ones were lousy--but not the A77 series. Competition drives innovation! Your turn Canon!

I have "Auto Review" off and I have some lag when shooting hummingbirds. It seems more noticeable than when I was using an A 57. It doesn't stop me from getting good shots, so I'm not that bothered by it, but truth be told it's there. If there is some setting besides " Auto Review" off, I'd like to know what.

Great shot Percy. I find the eyes of the Longhorn beetles very interesting.
