Enter local Contests!

I've entered 2 and have been a winner 2 times...

you can't win if you don't enter!

The winning shots are not what I would put on my own walls but were appropriate for their needs

Vinz -- I got myself a cord and the DSLR controller and this thing is awesome. So nice using my Galaxy S4 as my live view screen and really gives a ton of control I wouldn't normally get.

I was also able to learn the shutter count of my camera -- just under 10,000 haha

this page on dpreview about the 70D Preview does not have me all warm and fuzzy about shooting better Birds in Flight vs the 60D...

First off, thanks to everyone for the kind words on my bird.

DR D:Great Shot! I love hummingbirds. I see you also shoot with 60D. Was that shot taken with the 24-105L by chance? I read in another thread that that pairing wasn't great ( I think the thread was on walk around lens' for crop ) I know with the 24-105 the focal length is longer so the 24 end is what... 35? I really like the flexibility on framing with a zoom, bu I don't have an issue with switching lenses. I think eventually I want 4 maybe 5 zooms with slight overlaps or small gaps in range. But the 24-105L is probably the only L I could really justify being an amateur. Thoughts?

It was shot with the 70-200, but I have been liking my 24-105. I got mine as a walk around too and have liked it. I have the 10-22 for most of my landscape and the 70-400 (with converter) ;) for my long shots, but lacked some good middle glass. I went with the 24-105 over the 24-70 because of the extra range and price. Was easy to justify the price since my friend that works for a local shop had one from a 5D3 kit that the guy didn't want and got it for $500. Anyhow, yes I like it. It's way better than my 18-135 and built like a tank compared to it. I'd been looking for something that I could take on a hike or trip that I could get a fairly good range with, but keep the wide end too. I wanted to have just one lens I could pop on without changing back and forth from the10-22 to 70-200 and take my grip off so it would be more compact for hiking and such. So far this fits just like I thought it would and have been using it more than I have ever used the 18-135 since I don't get the lens creep from this one. Here's a few samples from this lens. These were shot in JPEG since I had done a timelapse and forgot to switch back over to RAW, so for the most part I didn't really edit these. I was amazed with the color and contrast this lens puts out SOOC. Hope this helps!

Great shot of the future awesome Girl Scouts of America leaders! My step grandmother was a Girl Scout for almost 100 years they honored her in Indiana when she turned 108 or 110 then she passed not long after but she was active her whole life.

Beautiful photo :) those girls should be proud to have such an accomplished lady (yes you Brenda) working with them and open for future photo ops for them!

+1 for the Sigma. Granted if I had the cash to freely drop, Canon is an obvious winner, but I picked my Sigma up like new for $300 and I have been super happy with it. I have no desire to replace it. It is a touch soft in the corners and has distortion (which can be corrected of course), but that is the case with any UWA

This one was corrected for verticals

I don't know why I am really drawn to this building but I thought I'd say "hey I really like this" and its a nice trip back to thinking about how the streets and sodewalks were grooving and moving with life when that place first opened its doors and the stories those walls would tell if they could.

Thanks guys for sharing!

Thanks Russ! This group has three generations of girl scouts. :) Here's another one. The light was nice. :)
