    Ok I cheated, this is from my old Minolta Maxxum 5 and not my 40D

    I posted this elsewhere, but the above inspired me to recycle my efforts []

    1. 20D, 50mm 1.8 II ::: 50mm, 1/250, f/2.0, ISO 200, Manual exposure. (I should have used a smaller aperture. And the focus looks really soft.)


    2. 20D, 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 ::: 28mm, 0.3, f/5.6, ISO 400, Manual exposure. (view of the sunrise from my room)


    Any critiques are more than welcome. I enjoy learning how to make good pictures. haha These pale in comparison to some of the ones on this thread.

    I thought that I would add a couple. Here is natures bounty and big sea little gull.

    A couple of my picks. (Both are holiday snaps. What do photographers do on holidays? They take photos of course!)


    This is Serena, a rare white tiger. Photographed through glass so I wasn't actually in any danger taking it.

    The second photo was taken on a dinner cruise in Nelson Bay (about 200 kms north of Sydney). The flash was able to penetrate the water a short distance so you see the dolphin below the water as well as above it. (A moment later the spray obscured the part below the water so the next shot in the sequence was a lot more ordinary. But I do like this one.

    This photo gave me "bragging rights" on the boat. None of the other people with P&S cameras got anything. The slow focus (in very low light) plus the shutter delay meant they missed the dolphin every time it surfaced. (I used manual settings and manual focus - picked something on the boat about the same distance away as the water was below, focused and moved the switch from AF to MF).

    Beautiful! The larger version is even nicer. Composition, color, great.


    You broke the rule that says the ground line shouldn't be in the middle. I bring this up not to detract from the photo, but to cast doubt on the rule! (Maybe the rule works sometimes)


    On a totally unrelated note, this picture illustrates how with a long slow lens, one can get a nice dof and still have a wonderful background blur.


    I live pretty close to Irvine but don't think I've ever been to the San Joaqin Wildlife Sanctuary. Methinks I should.

    Mob, I really like your dolphin shot. The tiger potrait is missing the catch light


    Jon, hope to run into you in the near future at SJWS. Just look for a slim Asian guy about 5'9 wearing a brown hat and carrying a 40D & 400 f/5.6L combo. [][]
