Ron the 6D thread is going to have guys that shoot the 6D extensively.. I'm certain they are way better suited to answer 6D questions.. most every image in here is 7DII I can tell you the 6D would have missed 60% of the images I took. Its just not fast enough. The 7DII missed Images I wanted and seen in the view finder but they were in-between the ones the 7DII took. 10 frames is just not enough a handful of times a year. wishing for 20 here in Minden.

Thank you but I am well aware of the 6D lack of focus ability.. My 6D has got to go and it will most likely be replaced by the 7d2.. Thats what I was saying
Great image BTW!!

O Really Ron lol... Not To bright here.. I was thinking you wanted to by a 6D lol... Of course i was outside all week at -30c to -12c that felt like -30c lol The blood is coming back to my head.. ill be ok. Sorry I miss read that.

The feel of the 7DII is so much different than the 6D, It feels rock solid, steady. It will give you confidence in your shooting and speed in your shutter and AF. all you'll need to do is find something to shoot lol. Do not worry about the sensor size, for 90% of your shooting the 7DII crop is everything a guy needs unless he's making a living with just one camera. I feel mine loves not so great weather and minus temps... or maybe thats just where I live lol

How much EC do you put in that shot, Jeff? +2? Or do you spot meter for the fox?

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.

Believe it or not I think I was 1/3 down. I tend to shoot a little under and push up... I know It just works for me. I blew out the snow in processing. In reality the snow has all definition, the sun was lower in the sky and shaded by tree's and the bush, I had a good light, I don't think I could have asked for better. The only thing that I would have done different is shoot more lol, I found myself in total ah of this one. She never knew I was there and if she had she would have bolted like a shot. I was black on the bottom and camo on the top shooting off hand. I backed into a tree Pine I think and that broke me up a little but I was in plain view the entire time. I kept my camera in front of my face and had gloves on. I knew she could hear my shutter and sometimes I had to stop shooting so she would move on and continue with her Deer. I only took around 300 rounds and thats not like me lol. In the end she got a big chunk and move back across the ice to the other side on the pond. I know I will shoot her again, I have followed her tracks for two years or more. I seen her on the edge of the bank on the other side of the pond and knew I wanted speed at the distance I was going to have to shoot so I went to 1/3200 f6.3 and seen with auto ISO was giving me 320 I left it right there. I the brighter sun days of winter I cant see the meter all the time so auto was the only way to go.
Thanks for asking , I enjoy the story lol. You can see the stress in her as she tried to find the courage to go out on the ice. she had to sit there and muster it up.. So Cool had she recognized me as a human the deal would have been off.

Interesting. I would have thought that all the white snow would have thrown off the metering and you would have had to bump up the exposure. I guess there are different ways to get to the same end point! Great shots, btw!

I don't know when I figured out the whites but I must have for the most part because I have to go on instinct and hindsight.

I'll vote #1 for the lack of blue. Nice work Mahn, more patience than hunting. She stick around after this shot ?

Great shot, Julie! I noticed that the Flickr info said flash was not fired. Was the bird just fortuitously sitting under a ray of sunshine? I'm just curious how you got just the right light on the bird while the BG and surrounding areas are dark.

I like the snow better in the first one creating a nice bokeh, but the fox better (slightly lighter and more color perception) in the second one.
