Love the birds! Did you do any special processing to get the birds to stand out so well?(contrast)

Shooting the rodeo was a learning experience in changing auto-focus modes and points. Things like barrel racing was easy and single point center. Team steer roping was crazy and just took an average or right side favored in the 19 points. All said and done, learned the camera functions better.

Hey Keith:

Your series of rodeo images posted on this thread are tremendous. You've really got that 7D capturing your vision. Like your question to Laserlight, what post processing techniques did you employ to get such excellent image detail and rendering?

No photoshop. Only opened with Canon DPP that came with the camera. The weekend was rain and cloudy, so a bit of brightness/contrast adjustments on some. I added some sharpening to help with the low contrast edges. Saturation was bumped up because of the heavy overcast. I start with the histogram and see what qualities need to be adjusted. The human eye has the final say. When files are re-sized, uploaded, and compressed, what seemed good on the full size image, looks washed out and fuzzy. I sometimes take the downsized file and add just a tad of sharpening and saturation to make up for the looses in compression. Nothing fancy for processing. I have CS5 Extended, but haven't used it yet.
I used the 70-200L 2.8 IS for all the shots.

No, just PP as a color then converted to color. All done with LR3

I posted a version this last month. It wasn't really an image I spent a whole lot of time on. I didn't give it much thought until I saw flickr had declared it my most interesting. Weirdos. Anyway, since they did that I looked at it closer and realized my snow was blue, how I didn't see that previously is beyond me, and the horrible smokestack in the centre needed to be erased. Here is the new edit:

Blue snow was more interestin'. :lol: j/k. Nice photo, but you have so many others that I consider much better (not that this photo is bad by any means). Flickr weirdos indeed.

BTW, did you get the Canon 70-200/2.8ii? I saw you posting some in that thread but your sig still says you have the Siggy.

Thanks & I agree. I don't pay much mind to what flickr determines to be interesting. Granted there's a lot of great stuff that gets "explored" but the majority of it does nothing for me. And that's not sour grapes because I haven't been explored. :lol:

No, unfortunately the Sigma is acting up and behaving poorly (lens communication errors, noises, and sometimes complete refusal to focus) and I had that Wildlife Centre shoot this past weekend so I rented the Mk II. What a gorgeous lens. It performed flawlessly and I'm really pleased with the images I got with it. Now to deal with the reality of not having the money for one and my faltering Sigma. :(

Yeah. I can't complain too much though. I bought it second hand For $600 or so when I was living in Tokyo in 2000 and it's served me very well many times since. I'll see about getting it repaired soon. In all honesty though using the Mk II has made me want to save the money I'd spend fixing the Sigma for that instead. I'm not sure I can stress enough just how good that lens worked for me. So very very good. Now my expectations for the Sigma are inversely proportional to the performance, and the happiness, it will provide.
