The 400 rig is not attached to the ballhead in this shot. I always leave it propped up against the tripod incase I need to roll over quickly and take it for a few handheld grab shots.
When it's on the ballhead the tripod is lowered to the deck and the lens platform is at 90deg to the head to get me as low to the ground as possible

possibly after. Here's what I was after with the wide angle, and I don't tend to do w/a until the bird has settled into accepting the 400 then the 70-200 and finally the 16-35

which one did you get? I was looking at some just last night.

Sorry, I wrote GND, when I meant VND (variable ND). I got the Light Craft Workshop Fader II. So far, I like it a lot, but on a FF with a UWA you really have to watch it, or you can end up with some very uneven pictures as you start hitting the 4+ stops.

Another one from the same setup (Horus Bennu CF tripod with HB ballhead, 5D Mark II, 16-35L II, LCW Fader ND).

My favourite so far:

I figured that, I was just being a little facetious. I like a little laughter from time to time.

Love this shot but what is the blue (reflection) near the bottom of the image?

It's taken me almost a week of internet browsing but I've finally got to the end of this hugely inspirational and interesting thread. Thanks to all the contributers.

Here's one of mine using a technique I learnt from the Macro forum. Sugar crystals dissolved on glass then back lit with an LCD monitor. Using a polarizing lens to change the rainbow effect.
Set-Up shot:

The monitor is on with a 100% white image, it just does not show up in this pic because the flash fired.

Thanks! :) I don't think I have added it yet, so I'll head over and do that :)

Thank you :)

Arrrghh...I wrestled with that reflection (whether to keep it or not, I think it could be as easy as turning down the blues to get rid of it)...it's the sky being reflected...I thought it added a splash of colour...but yeah, I wasn't sure on keeping it either...

Is it bugging anyone else?
