There does seem to be a slight quality difference, but i'm wondering if it has to do with the fact that you were at 2.8 vs. say closer to F8. That probably has a little to do with it.

Could be....I guess the next time you do another stunt like that, I'll have to shoot at F8 - F11 compared to 2.8 and see what comes about.

I think I originally started at F8, but in order to get quicker shots (since we were moving) I opened it up to 2.8 for a faster shutter speed...I just forgot to put it back whilst we were more in hover mode!

Cheers, Vinny...yup, the tide was down, which did make for some nicer shots around coastline.

I have a technical question - one that is more a curiousity than anything else. Is there a correlation between print sizes and the camera / MPs?

I am just curious on what the max "sane" size is of printing something taken with a 40D.

Nice shots guys.

I have made 20x30 prints from my old XTi, which is pretty much the same sensor as the 40D. The biggest I've made from my 40D is 12x18, but I have no doubt the 20x30 would look great. I'm not all that tech savvy on the whole upsizing thing, but I import my RAW files into CS4 using Adobe Camera RAW at 300ppi. I'm not sure if the lab does the upsizing from my file.

I did more than that, but you can't really see it on a 900px wide photo which was shot at 2.8. I did some high pass sharpening on it as well but you can't really see it in this photo.

I just got a tablet for the first time and it has me doing things that i would have been too lazy to do when only using a mouse. Not on this photo, but generally speaking.

Anyhow, can't wait for April with Frank! I'm actually seeing him in 2 weeks as we'll be in Amsterdam. But the New York workshop is going to be the fun one. Be great to meet some characters on this forum. :D

Cool....right, I just plug my CF card into a card reader, and it churns it out. Is there any way how to know & control the ppi? Like I said, more curious than anything else.

The images don't look crap on smugmug, but you just never know on paper :D

Hi gang! Blast from the past here, just dropping in to say hello...Hope everyone is doing well! I've been on quite the hiatus from the photography world and trying to get back into things with the hobby. Its nice to see some old faces and names here in the recent postings and look forward to meeting the new folks since...and Mumbles, congratulations on the proposal - that is a FANTASTIC story! Hopefully I can catch up with everyone on a future meet!

Hiro, were you the one that tripped on the fence and hit your 70-200 on the ground, when we broke into that building?

Heheh...I didn't trip on the fence (perhaps that was someone else), but I did trip inside the dark building. I don't recall falling on my camera/lens, but I do remember scraping my knee. That was a fun night!
