Great shot of the bandstand, I can't work out where the flash is. Radio triggered I assume.

This one 19 / 20, although the one entered I did strengthen the lamppost, the title "A brief encounter" the judge liked the story portrayed of the two people and the setting

This one 20 / 20, title "A splash of colour" the judge liked the people, the capture of movement and the Tower of London in the background

B & W may be take down the brightness on the lamp, crop off the 13Amp socket, even crop the lamp off as well and adjust the highlight left on the right-hand picture

Happy new year chaps! Hope Santa brought you lots of nice new kit for Christmas.

For me I've been busy urbexing and finding new locations in France to photograph. You'd be amazed at what the French leave behind just to rot - this one from a farmhouse that is due to be demolished soon:

20151205-021_2_3_tonemapped (external link) by Dennis Golchert (external link), on Flickr

Anyway, to a technical question. My 5D Mk II suffered a catastrophic error last weekend - Error 30, which according to the Interweb means a shutter or sensor failure. Turning it off and on again, as the camera suggests, didn't work (surprise!), so I'm weighing up a new body option. Does anyone have an experience with a 5D3 or 6D? The 6D looks the most attractive option - lighter weight seems to be a plus but doesn't have 51 AF points or 6fps. For what I do, the focal points might be more useful, but not sure if the extra few hundred quid is worth it. If anyone has any thoughts, please let me know.

I'm inquiring about the cost of repair so may just end up with a repaired 5D2, but it would be worthwhile doing the theoretical exercise anyway. I've been a bit unhappy with the 5D2 low light capability so an upgrade may be on the cards regardless.

In know people with both the 5Diii an 6D and they are happy with their choice JD and Cindy both went for the 6D when they upgrade last year as after trying one of each over a weekend the found for them the IQ was better on the 6D.
I've used a 5d3 and was very happy with it I'm very tempted to upgrade to one over the 6D mainly due to focus points as I find the diamond pattern of the 6D restricting with what I do but having said that they are both great cameras.
This is straight of a 5D3 no editing shoot in natural light.

I have had my 6D for 3 years :eek: it is basically the 5 II sensor and processor, it is very light in weight, the view finder does not give you 100% view (think is around 95%) the GPS works reasonably well. Some people will say but only has 11 AF points but I only ever use one the centre one which is extremely good in low light its ASO can go fro 50 to a stupidly high number I am quite happy with it a 1200 ISO and even 2000
