A few shots from today when I was out testing out my new 7D.

Very happy with the results from the camera, especially the step up in AF from the 450D. Now all I need to do is get used to the fact I now have ISO levels between 800 and 1600 that I could have used in the very changable light conditions.

Photos all taken at the Birds of Prey Show, Callaway Gardens, GA.
7d + 100-400L

All great, but I like #3 as well. Too bad he didn't come straight at you in #1 the pattern on top of his wings is quite striking.

Thanks everyone.

I must say I actually prefer 1 - simply because it's what I intended to take, didn't need to be cropped. 3 - which seems to be the leading favourite to me is not quite as good, as I had to crop out some crap to the right (which still has a faint trace of it I notice now...)

Try cloning instead of cropping, and you'll (perhaps) achieve a better shape to the finished image.
Oh, and I also think #3 is excellent....even with the "crap" to the right.

At the moment my PP tools consist of DPP - so not an option at the moment. Next photography purchase will be some decent PP software.

Just download the GIMP here --> http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/st​able.html (external link)
It does perhaps 95%+ of PhotoShop, is as stable as LightRoom, and is free!
If you have any doubts, don't!!! And spend the money on lenses instead :D

I have been spending the $$ on kit so far - as I'm not a big fan of doing much to PP images - for the most part fixing white balances/sharpening etc, and cropping has been able to solve most of my photographic issues. I figure I can always go back and PP some of my shots that it would be nice to when/if I get some real PP software, but you can't go back and get a better lens and retake a shot.

I have used GIMP previously, but always felt it was a bit clunky. Never got round to installing it when I got my new laptop a while ago, and haven't for the most part missed it.

Hey Daniel....that's the second time someone's called the GIMP "clunky".:(
Oh well, if you don't ever need it, no problems :D
