Actually like 2. I'm trying to leave repeat patterns behind but it's difficult.

It's always hard to break out of a rut, no matter how shallow it is. Go somewhere new to shoot is what I might suggest.

Re: PART 2- This Week...Polo action
1

Hello All,

Here are some photos of a polo match.

The light was harsh -- mid-day. In retrospect, I should have done more to control the backgrounds. But it was a lot of fun, and I have some ideas for how to do it better next time. More in my gallery.

All suggestions welcome.

Best regards,

Jeff

Re: PART 2- This Week...Polo action

Yeah - some great 'poses' by the horses here but you're right - the backgrounds are a little distracting here and there.

Re: B&W in North Devon

I like the third the most of these. Particularly the chap on the left. Good framing and sky too.

Re: One of my cats with 12-40 2.8

What a beautiful cat.  Is it a special breed?  Excellent shot too.

Re: B&W in North Devon

A nice set and fine conversions.  The second is the star for me but the first is also very good.

Great Shots! And very fine images here too!

I came across this fellow last week, VERY briefly as it flew off with my eye stuck to the EVF. So I have no other information. A warbler perhaps:

Unknown Bird near Britt ON on Georgian Bay.

This fellow hung around for a while, posing for the camera! Perhaps a finch?

Unknown Bird, a bit inland from the Georgian Bay Coast.

Can you ID these please?

Many thanks,

Tom

Thanks Tony!  Yes! That first one is definitely a Yellow warbler.  I don't know how to use that Cornell site well enough yet!

Second one?  That is a huge beak.  grosbeak type.

Very nice. The first is a male Yellow Warbler. The 2nd is a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak. The females of many small birds can be tricky as they usually don't have the same colouring as the male.

This is an image of mine of the same female Grosbeak from 3 years ago. The shape of the beak is the dead giveaway that it is from the Grosbeak family. I had just started birding at the time and didn't know what bird it was until l looked through some books.

Female Rose-breasted Grosbeak

And here is the more colorful male.

Male Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Those are great!  Many thanks.  I used to see lots of MALE Rose breasted Grosbeaks around here, but not so many lately (the last 5 years or so).  Same with Pine Grosbeaks and Evening Grosbeaks.  I never did learn to ID any of the females.

I will certainly try to find that Yellow Warbler again.  A neighbour in the area said that he saw one a week or so ago, but I didn't make the connection.  In a huge willow beside the shoreline of the Bay.  I hope that it is nesting there. Same  goes for the Grosbeak, which  I saw about a mile inland from the Bay.

Thanks a lot for the IDs and the extra pics.  Very fine!

Through my hotel room window

Have East Coast photos still to process, but just to join the "out the window" posting party I am including this shot taken through the rather dirty window of my hotel room in Toronto the day before yesterday.

Great shot!  Did you get it just after it launched, with AF-S?

I've been trying to get a good one of those  rascals all spring ... so far unsuccessfully.  I can't even get a good (close) one sitting on a cattail!  Going have to learn to sneak up on them better or sit in the reeds and wait for one I guess!

Fun lens, eh?

Re: Redwinged Blackbird in Flight

I got it right after it launched with AFC and wide AF pattern. AFC on the GM1 is pretty fast and it's not rare to get dead-on BIF with it.

Re: iris, columbine and some abstracts

The first and last are special. The last is very arresting in particular - a wonderful photo.

Ah, thank you.  That is a rare great shot!

Most of the really GOOD BIFs that I get are right after launch, while the bird is still in the focus zone for the still.  I am normally shooting in AFS and have been lucky a few times.  I have yet to try AFC with my new GH4.

I'll spend some time practicing shooting gulls in the air with AFC this summer, when I am out on my boat!

Thanks a lot.

Re: One of my cats with 12-40 2.8

Thanks. He is a Maine Coon - an American breed, now popular in Australia. They are the largest domestic cat and typically have a very gentle, affectionate disposition.

Re: Through my hotel room window

I like the shot, Frank.

Since your left hand vertical border is aligned with the buildings, did you try to do the same to the right hand side in post?   I dunno how it would work, but it is worth trying to compare with the existing framing.

Great composition of rectangles.  Too bad you had to be a S.O.B.* to do that!
