Another from my recent road trip. I can't enter my own contest, but since there is only one entry so far, surely some of you guys have some autumn themes photos to enter? Like Iride's very nice Cumbres Pass photo?

This was taken from the old Lincoln Highway from Donner summit, looking down on Donner lake and the town of Truckee California.

Wood Duck Drake


Wood Duck Drake by dcstep, on Flickr

1,000mm, handheld at 1/125-sec., f/8 and ISO 6400. DxO wanted more default NR, but I rolled it back to preserve feather details.

^^^ Nice one Dave. I have yet to get a wood duck in California, although I know they are around. The migrating ducks are back, I just got back from a small trip today to a wildlife reserve (state run, as the feds are closed), and again decided I really really need a 500mm.

This is from my recent trip again, and I will have more from this road on my next X1 picture thread.

And one from today. One of the few that came out, which is why I ordered a 5D3 today. Anyhow:

Finally got through the rest of the race photos.


Onto the Front Straight by ddk632, on Flickr

Hoping to get into more sunsets/landscapes in the coming weeks. Sunsets around here have been beautiful lately. I have a few on my iPhone (lame, I know) from a few evenings ago as I've been taking the kids to watch the sunset recently now that it's a bit earlier than in the summer.

Fall Color - Explored by dcstep, on Flickr

This is with my Canon 15mm f/2.8 fisheye, de-fished. Love that lens. I'm so close to the leaves in this shot that I could touch them. The perspective with that little lens is really unusual.

Those colors are natural, with a setting sun hyping the leaves.

Dave,

Nicely done. Bet there'd be some white in that shot if taken this AM.

Very nice! Looks like a really impressive lens. I can't wait marry up my 14mm to my incoming 5D3. Unfortunately we don't get that kind of color out here.

Thanks to all.

Yes, I was tied to my desk this morning and couldn't get out to catch the snow on the leaves. My image printer, Tony Eitzel, got out this morning and told me that I missed a good one.

I'm excited. Next Monday Tony's hanging 15 of my prints in my office suite, including a 49"x34" of the Grand Canyon. The tests that I saw turned out fantastic.

I use de-fish software (DxO) with my 15mm fisheye. It does wonders and makes the lens very useful. I find it very intuitive to use, but you've got to get really close to most subjects, or there's got to be a lot of interesting stuff over a broad area, like a big sky with dramatic clouds, to make images that work.
