After two really frustrating days, I'm back where I was (technologically). The boys called me to see if I wanted to have lunch with them and go golfing at their club. I took the opportunity to chill and spend time photographing the brothers having fun together. On the last hole, the golf course guy.......I'm certain there is a high fallutin name for his position but I don't know it, comes ripping up in a cart and begs me to follow him to shoot a "huge bird" he just saw. The boys finished their hole and we followed him around the bend. This guy was there, with three others, and they weren't the least bit intimidated by any of us.......................

100-400 capture, and Lady Jo, you are welcome to borrow it for the day, or however long you would like it. I got it back after an 8 month loan to a friend. What a great lens. Even with my doubts about where Canon is going, I'd buy the sequel to the 100-400 without batting an eye.

This got the full LR5 / PSCC / Nik treatment including uprez by about 125% and a little anti-shake filter.

Thank you Jim! Now I know it can produce awesome shots like that, it will be a proper test to see if my soft shots are operator error or not :-)

I do love big birds of prey... Saw something in our back yard the other day, might have been a red-tailed hawk but he was gone too fast to know.

Happy to put it in your capable hands Lady Jo! I can put the sharp/soft argument to rest, at least as it relates to my copy........................ (BTW, this is a Red Shouldered Hawk)

Beautiful captures Jim .. the second a person even slows down in their vehicle out here, these guys are on the wing !

I wish Nikon had a reasonable lens like Canon's 100-400 ......

I sent my 70-200 mm in yesterday to Melville .. today they said $600 and another 48.50 for shippin' and tax. It never ends It's insured, but I forgot to send them my ups ticket for $10 bucks shippin' from here .. guess I could eat that

When insurance claims dept called me, she was gonna just go ahead and replace it .. mmmmm don't think you can buy a version 1 anymore - would of been a pretty good deal for me and since I have the inflation clause she'd of probably done it not knowing any better .. she's like it says here it is a 70-200 mm UR .. u r .. no, VR ma'am .... o, I'll change that .. lol -- told her I had sent it in for repair and she was happy to hear it, but would research a new replacement in case it couldn't be fixed so there would be no delay in processing my claim !! WOW !!

Good luck Curtis. I was thinking exactly the same thing re: Nikon this evening. I'm tempted to buy the 200-400, because I know with reasonable certainty that they are going to best Canon again body wise and I'll be moving deeper and deeper into Nikon country over the next few years.

12:04 Dallas time and I could keep Photoshopping til dawn. I really have about two solid weeks of post work, but my shooting schedule won't allow that luxury. Just took on four more commercial projects spread across the country and I have fifteen on the schedule as it stands, no complaints, just a little fried. JR just dropped by to ask me if I could go with him to the Congo on a business deal in the near future..............I think that is just the other side of The Big Bend, isn't it?

Time for a serious bout of sensor cleaning before I shoot another thing that isn't at 2.8! All of a sudden my sensors all look like I've been changing lenses in a sandstorm. Guess I'll devote the morning to that project.

JW - nice bird images. Guess you could say you shot a BIRDIE on the course today . The 100-400 i purchased new , was extremely sharp, until the IS went whacko . Then after return from Canon repair it seemed sofd. I think part of my problem was my 10D body .

If Nikon were to announce a 17T/S equivalent and a new pro body, I think I'd sell all my Canon gear and never look back.

ran this on one of our old work boxes - I think I overloaded the end point where the test ran, because this is well below our actual bandwidth

I thought I left the space nuts behind when I left Clear Lake and the Johnson Space Center when I retired. But gosh, SpaceEx has a rocket engine test facility 15 miles north of the farm, and now I learn the US rocket team at the Paris Air Show is from Georgetown, TX, about 30 minutes south of the farm.

Young American Rocketeers
On Friday, American, British and French student rocketeers will compete in the annual international rocketry global championship.
The Georgetown 4-H team from Georgetown, Tex., bested 99 teams in the recent U.S. finals for the chance to represent the United States at the Paris Air Show.
