Check it Y'all! This is sooo cool that so many photographers get see my work. I know it's not published in a book or anything, but this is still more than I had ever thought would ever happen when I got into this hobby 7 months ago. http://www.todaysphoto​.org …-day/lightning-over-utah/ (external link)

I use (used?) my 60D for professionnal, as a lot of other people. It is a very nice body. But more important, it's the person behind it ;)

Anybody from the Houston area? I'll be there this weekend and might get a small window of time to shoot. Also looking for some food maybe bar recommendations.

Anyone have any pointers for wildlife (dawn and/or dusk) and the 55-250 with this body? Contemplating a trip, this weekend. Time to get off of my ass and take some real photographs.

I plan on using a monopod, for portability. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

No monopod. Unless you plan on just standing in one spot for ages. The 55-250 is so light and the IS so good I don't see the need. Personally I'm against any kid of 'pods unless absolutely necessary. Too much clutter and weight and it ties the camera down.

hi guys, i was wondering if anyone here has a eyepiece extender for their 60d in here? if you do which one do you use? ep-ex15 or ep-ex15 ii? i used to have the 2nd version for my 500d nd i notice that the eyecup is alot bigger than the 500d's.. the canon website claims that the ii version is the one to use for the 60d but i cant believe that!

I have one, I'll be able to tell you when I get home, I didn't bring the camera with me today. QQ

**CONGRATULATIONS DR. D!! :D

-everestnut that is one gorgeous photo.

EDIT: I started to mess around with Lightroom, I guess my biggest issue is the navigation interface of it all. :S

Can someone tell me what setting to use to photograph a hawk in the trees. I've been trying to get a photo of the hawk that hangs out in the trees in my backyard, but my camera is focusing on the leaves (It's always got a few leaves in front of it) and not the hawk.

Seems you do want manual focus.

"But if the leaves move" - I come across those tricky situations and programmed my 60D to have a back button "Focus Stop (as opposed to back button focus). I think my avatar is an example of using the 'Focus Stop' button...

If you can manage to establish focus (using your shutter button) - the second you have it - press the back button "Focus Stop" and hold (press) it there. Keeping it pressed - then when you snap photos of the perched bird - the bird itself remains in focus despite having leaves/branches blow in the way. As mentioned by others - select your center focus point instead of auto.

Directions: Menu - right side red option (next to green star) - select Fn IV Operation/Others - #1 in the upper right red box - #7 (the option where the back * button is "Focus Stop"

Otherwise - use the manual focus on your lens as prescribed.

Only Raw for me, yes. Raw allows for more edit/processing flexibility. Then I convert to jpeg in Lightroom if its something I want to post/email/print.
