Nice job all around. Both #1 and #2 are winners.

I love the fisheye of the pigeons. It brings back lots of childhood memories for me as we raised "some", as in about 100+ pigeons at one point. They're like flying rabbits.

Would love to see some fisheyes of Seagulls. In San Francisco (Pier 39), those bad boys will fly right up "in your face" if you're eating a breadbowl of soup or a corndog. And as big as they are, you probably won't need them that close, either.


Thank you LMT.
About 3 years ago I shot some gulls with 15mm f/2.8 Fish Eye, in excellent light......I shared a couple of those on this forum already.

That's a terrific pose in #1 Peter... and the doves at 8mm FL is a really cool perspective.

The underrated PIF....no one does it better...not even close. I would imagine "normal" bif are a piece of cake after a warm up shooting these guys!
Oh, those gulls are amazing...very painterly...gorgeous!

Peter, if you ever ponder coming out this way we will have to inform FM, there are a dozen or more here in SoCal including da man Mr. Miranda. That would be quite the shoot out, I'd be way out gunned but it would be a blast.

The 6D is getting closer price wise, just gotta get this ole bean's body up to speed before I drop those dimes. Last I checked w/24-105 it was $2400, translated that's 1600 for the body; works for me.


Yes, I hear Fred has become a birding keener since he got his 500 II.
Even if not $1,600 by itself yet, I feel 6D price should drop to that level within a few short months. Having to sell 24-105L in an oversupplied market may not be fun, I think it is better to wait a bit.

Thank you. Eric......alas, the long lens technique is very different from the short lens technique.

Conrad, do not worry about it, that thing is for us infirm elderly folks who can't hold a long lens steady any longer.
