I think this is the strongest compositionally, you need to watch your verticals I think, but I do like this. :-)

heres a pic of mine to add to the thread... a little over processed from what i normally do but i hate shooting black cars

if youre talking about the washed out blacks all you have to do is pull the bottom left side of your curves (the shadows and darks) up and right. kinda odd to explain.

I really dig the PP! :)

Was it a single shot or pano? Such a dramatic difference between the buildings and the clouds. Really a spectacular shot.

Just a single, and heavily cropped. I shot this a couple of months ago but didn't post it as the clouds look messed up to me. I overdid the contrast, for one thing...still, it's a hit over on flickr, which is fun:)

Beautiful shot Al.

Thanks Mark:):)

Here is some fun with an extender and extension tube (used for cropping, not macro).
All shots here are hand held and manually focused using live view at 10x. Please note that this is not a test, just results of using different tools in a real life situation.

Warning: This post contains one shot (#3 below), using 50D instead of 5D3, for the sake of comparison.


---------------
1. 5D3, Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM + Canon 1.4x III extender

2. The same setup with an additional Canon Extension Tube EF 25

3. Now the same lens, tube and extender combination shot on a 50D body

Please notice the significant zoom-in due to the cropped sensor, but an equally outstanding amount of digital noise added in bargain.


4. Similar shot from 5D3 remains much smoother even when cropped a bit in PP. The animal, as well as the branches of the guava tree, are so much more real and touchable when shot on 5D3.

Another surprising observation I had was that the manual focus on the 50D was much more difficult as the picture seemed to float in the view finder. I understand that this was due to the IS at work, but I could not switch off IS for a handheld shot at close to 1000mm. I tried the mode 2 for IS, and it seemed to help.
The zoom button located near the right hand on the 50D body was very easy to work with, while it was pretty awkward on a 5D3.

I really like the PP on this one. Well done..!

thanks mtimber, that's true I guess I was too excited for my 5D III to come in, I didn't fix the distortion :-) you're referring to the left side of the photo mostly right?

I am. :-)

A quick adjustment in Lightroom would soon sort that out. :-)

Nice comparison, 5D3 clearly has more 3D or better separation of the tones, I saw that on dpreview with comparison tool> croppy sensor can not distinguish some colors and flattens out subtleties.
