nothing goes over the 500L -
I'd love to photograph the kerosene powered birds, though ;)

That lens you bought from Dan has some history behind it. It used to belong to pro surf photographer Chris Straley and has been all over the world. Glad to see it went to a good home!

I couldn't be happier it came to my home!! Just wanted to post a couple shots I took. Wanted to make sure the lens felt at home...lol. I know how it loves taking surf shots. Let me know what you think

Very nice!


Some stuff that says "Canon" on it and a happy trigger finger.

Well....something is not right. Looks soft to me, maybe the focus is off...

May i suggest that you create a new layer and create a mask for sharpening and change the blend mode to luminosity so that you can "paint" your sharpened version of the image then you won't "sharpen" the clarity of noise as well :lol:

Great shot by the way at 1000mm:eek:

Like just about everything PS there are a number of ways to get there but you if one is using a NR plugin like Neat Image you can run multiple passes and clean and soften the background very nicely and keep every fine detail remaining.

Using the 500mm on a 50D handheld while on one knee: 1/250th, f/4 ISO 400

And back to the subject at hand the 500mm is spectacular piece of glass, I love mine! I mean a true loving relationship, one my girl friend often mentions she would like me to have with her. ;)

Congrats on the new glass and toys!

I usually use Imagenomics Noiseware. I even use Imagenomics Portraiture to smooth colors out. There is an eye dropper to select color. It doesn't always have to be skin tones!!
I was just trying to post a pretty much out of camera shot for comparison!! Not a show pic!!

Way off - something's wrong. Poor samples of what this lens is capable of.

I wasn't trying to post a picture of what the lens was capable of. I was just out playing and that happened to be the shot I liked.
