David, she's very attractive and deserves to be captured with your camera.
I just shot a fun fly but neither the weather nor the number of participants were as good as usual, but the camera did fine.

In this one you can just notice that some of the upper wing's covering has peeled off. Luckily it didn't cause a loss of control.

A skill is developed through constant practice with a passion to improve, not bought.

Couple of more at ISO 1600 and f/2.8 and the use of outer points. No need to focus and recompose like my 30D.

Why is it the only noisy part of this image is the girl?

Selective noise reduction, I assume.

The pics were a little underexposed so I had to correct that in PP and in addition to running curves in PP probably brought out more noise.

I do a few layers and did run NR on the background. For the wife, I don't see noise on my monitor other than the hair which I did not run any NR on which I probably should have.

I found as well if you pixel peep the files even from a studio shoot, if there is a bit of under exposure you will get this kind of noise. The exposure have to be dead on - then you wont get the noise. As her face is a bit shaded that will happen as you can see that the highlights are blown in the BG

edit . ps if you do spot metering on the face in places where the light is a bit so so.... it should help a lot.....

Well if I am in the correct place, I have found a bunch of people who have too much money to buy S#$t like EOS-1 Ds Mrk 11 dslr. Which turns out good because I just got one myself 6-9 months ago. I don't claim to be a newbie in the same sentence I would not claim to be a pro. Yet my images are sub par and on a very inconstant basis. And yes I am going to blame my new equp. before my self. I tried to use most functions on this camera and then go back to the ones I am comfortable with. Reset back to factory and the cycle continues.I can't believe some of the images I am getting! This rig it capable of much more than I am getting out of it. And I know ..... I am the one shooting right. If anybody would like to help out send me a message. I would appreciate any advise. Thank you for reading!

1Twist,

You start off you post by making financial assumptions about the financial fitness of the people here based on what gear they own, claim to know what you are doing but offer up no examples of your specific problem and then ask for help. You've even seen fit to avoid the perfectly legible standard font and opt for a lighter, fuzzier one in your post! This is not a great way of starting out here. :confused:

Perhaps you could describe more specifically what issues you are having, post some example shots that demonstrate those issues and then we can go from there. Otherwise, your experience here is not going to be a useful one.

Cheers!

Your fourth? Something happen to the other three?

Maybe the Hoff "graduated" to a 1Ds3? :)

I bought his second or third, less than 7000 clicks and it works great....couldn't be happier.

I miss the Hoff too.

Just trying to make a joke excuse me. As for the font ... really. Perhaps I could "describe more specifically what issues I am having" but I wont because of persons like you. "This is not a great way of starting out here" -nice touch!!! from a senior member also.

If you claim that you aren't the problem (which you did in your first post) and you can't (won't) describe the specific problems you are having with the camera, we cannot help you, it's as simple as that. It's like calling the doctor and saying I'm sick, not going in to see him, refusing to tell him anything that is wrong with me, and expecting a diagnosis off of one phone call during which no details were exchanged. It just won't happen.

So give us some details and we will try to help as best we can.

Other than that I'll be back in a bit to post some pics from the past week...I've been away adventuring, hence the lack of posts with new pics for the last while.

No need to keep quiet... we like helping. Answers require a question to be posed first. Even a single sample image with an explanation of what you think is wrong with it is a start.

I'll interrupt this discussion with a picture from tonight's sun set.

Shot with the 14L again! ;)

Playing with some sort of HDR are we? Looks pretty good in the shadows... could use some fake sun flare though :P

Here we go. I had a week off from school this past week, so I took advantage of it to go do some proper recreation. I didn't do as much photography as I had hoped, but there was enough to keep me somewhat satisfied.

A bit of kayaking...

Being mobbed by hummingbirds at the feeder -- there were up to 25 at the feeder at a time, which made for some great photo ops.

Got lucky on this one. I prefocused on an area away from the feeder where they were hovering before going in, and got a couple sharp shots. This is the full frame with 300L + 1.4XTC. I could have used 8.5 fps here, but I only had my 1Ds with me.
