Thanks ufauxreal i loved that pic its not easy to catch the flames when the rally shifts gears was lucky to catch it on that panning shot, im no pro im using a canon 1000d with this lense iv got it down to 1/30s and had stunning images panning or upto 1/2000s for freezing action like in some of the pics below

taken at 1/30s Exif Data (external link)

Wow! Were those manually focused? There's no way the AF could catch those!

I'm assuming he used the AI Servo focus mode, which allows for panning shots.

actualy i did these in "one shot" mode due to them being some distance from where i was stood and i didnt want the chance of AI Servo losing focus due to the conditions i was in heavy rain and low cloud

Caught this guy in the dog's water bowl. Pulled him out and shot a few photos.

Thanks! I didn't do anything special with the shot. Check out the exif info on my flickr. I literally took him out of the water bowl and placed him in the grass. Zoomed in as much as I could and close to the subject as possible (fairly close). I shot about 6 or 7 shots and used One Shot AF.

Sweet little baby hummer. When I first saw her this morning she couldn't figure out the feeders and wasn't very good at flying. She let me pick her up and hold her a few times. For a while I was worried she wouldn't see tomorrow, but she finally got the hang of things and seems to be doing well now. I didn't bother with the camera too much today, I was too busy worrying about her. Once I saw she was finally drinking and flying around more, I grabbed the camera.

Not much cropped from this, just a bit of border where I had to straighten the line.

My apologies if these images are overly frightening to some folks...

So last night I was walking to dock to have a drink with my girlfriend, taking my camera to take some shots of the moon, possibly reflecting in the lake, or such.

On the way I took a couple of typical shots of the (slightly waning) moon at full zoom using the 55-250, when suddenly she says "don't walk onto the dock!" This had spun a web across the walkway:

IMAGE: http://i868.photobucket.com/albums/ab246/shinksma/Canon%20T3i%20Photos/IMG_2868_1024.jpg

That's the moon being used for the silhouette. Slight brightness adjustment, nothing else done (except resize for posting, natch).

Here's what it looks like lit up with the on-board flash:

IMAGE: http://i868.photobucket.com/albums/ab246/shinksma/Canon%20T3i%20Photos/IMG_2871crop1024.jpg

Sides cropped, slight color enhancement.

Need to look it straight into the eyes...and eyes...and eyes...and eyes?

IMAGE: http://i868.photobucket.com/albums/ab246/shinksma/Canon%20T3i%20Photos/IMG_2871_100percent_crop.jpg

100% crop of the fullsized previous shot.

And for those not yet fainted, the "other side"(mild cropping only for centering):

IMAGE: http://i868.photobucket.com/albums/ab246/shinksma/Canon%20T3i%20Photos/IMG_2875crop1024.jpg

Unfortunately it wasn't there when we got up at dawn. I still need to look up what kind of spider that is.

This lens does a pretty darned good job, IMHO.
