View of North Portland from the BPA trail. The Willamette River is in the foreground, and the Columbia in the background, where the Willamette joins it. Sauvie Island is on the left.

6D/24-70II/Marumi CPL, 2:45pm, bright sunshine.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Nice. Is this a composite? I'd imagine the severe contrast makes it hard to avoid blown highlights outside and dark shadows inside. Nicely done.

Thanks. No, this is a single image processed in Photoshop CS6. I think what allowed me to tone down the highlights and bring up the shadows without destroying the image was the ISO 100 setting. As you probably know, the 5D3 has it's widest dynamic range at base 100 ISO. Whenever possible, I try to us 100 ISO.

Yeah. Nicely done. I just remember when I had the 5D3 (and even with my prev 1DX), at some point in pushing the shadows, the banding noise pattern start to creep its ugly head. Looks like you were able to avoid that altogether, which is great.

Truly is a nice view for the restaurant.

I think I was at the limit in the shadows... if you look at the seat back in the bottom left, you can see the banding beginning to appear a little. But it's very subtle. I'm thinking about purchasing the 5DSR next, but am going to wait on the release and reviews of the 5D4 before making a final decision. If I had a good enough reason, I'd jump on the 1DXII, but don't do enough sports or fast action photos to justify it at this point. I see you have the 1DXII and based on the reviews, it's a remarkable camera. Just not my style of shooting at the moment.

If you're not in a rush, definitely wait for the 5D4. Assuming the 1DX2 sensor tech carries over to the 5D4, then the shadows will be MUCH much better to pull up. Assuming there's a 5DS/R2 in the future, and also using the same sensor tech, I think that would be the ultimate Canon landscape camera then. (At least until the 5DS/R3. :lol: )

Yeah, no hurry here. Will be very interested to see how the dynamic range and high ISO performance of the 5D4 compares to the 5DSR. If it's close and the 5D4 has other redeeming features above the 5DSR, then I'll probably go for the 5D4. So many cameras, so little time...:-)
