Re: Great niece...

That's very nice.  Yes, you could rotate it, but this shows us how kids have a way of moving around too fast for us to get good poses.

Re: Seville - T2i

Wow...that's pretty.  I found viewing the original makes it even more astounding.  Could you describe a little about where you took the photograph?

Thank you. I tried to blur the backgrounds because they were a golf course busy with golfers, carts, lawn mowers etc.

CC I dont think these guys EVER really sleep in the daytime..

The place I retired from had REALLY hi-res, long zoom, stabilized surveillance cameras, and the geese used to cluster around the building I worked in to eat the clover, and rest...

I zoomed in on a gooses head, from time to time and filled a 40 inch monitor with it...

Some of them slept, for sure, but the leader of each particular pack (they roamed in groups of 20 to 40 adults and chicks) would cycle an eye open about once every thirty seconds.. Every 4 to 5 minutes he would raise his head, have a good look around, and resume "resting".

Amazing what you could observe with a 950mm f4 lens from hundreds of feet away (cameras were mounted 60 feet above a 3 story building).

Re: Wife and her horse

That's a good looking photo.  I know you from the Olympus DSLR forum.  How long have you been using the Canon camera?  How do you like it?  I've been pretty happy with the Canon T2i (550D) cameras for about a year and a half, considering that I'm still using the kit lenses and shooting JPEGs.  I look at other lenses and so forth, but I'm in no hurry to get more gear.  But I look at them a lot, although.   I'd like to get another telephoto lens, maybe the fixed 400mm L lens, rather than the 100-400mm L lens for wildlife.  But I got a ways to go before I've saved enough for that.  So, I'm taking my time...taking lots of pictures in the meantime.

Those are nice sharp photos.  Yes, those geese have to keep a watch on us paparazzi photographers.

Those are very pretty.  I like the light-red-purple colors.

I've had Canon gear for quite some time... Just haven't been using it much.

I bought into the Olympus cameras because I got VERY tired of cleaning sensors..

I have a bunch of lenses for Canon or adapted for Canon, so with no new Oly DSLR in sight I spent some small change on a very new (used) T1i..  Im very happy with it, and will be using it a LOT!

I need to find my favorite lens (f2.8 135mm CZ Yashica/Contax mount) Its in a box someplace with the Canon adapter on it!

Re: Wife and her horse

That's interesting.  When I first bought my Canon T2i (550D) camera, that was the first time I had purchased a Canon DSLR camera.  I haven't had any problems cleaning the sensors because of maybe two reasons.  First they have a sensor cleaning system (I don't know if it's as good as the Olympus system) and secondly I don't change lenses on both of my Canon DSLR cameras.  I'm glad you like the Canon T1i (500D) camera.
