Not much of an apparent fall theme, except the shot was taken today, on a rather mild and somewhat sunny autumn day.

I was doing some AF torture test of my 1DX + 400 II combo.
Actually, this kind of shots is not easy for the camera operator either.

I tried some PIF and failed miserably. I am more in awe by your PIFs' Peter. But I did come back with a colorful pigeon

Good Evening,

Peter, Jerry: Thanks for the comments...the old FD "L" glass is still doing the magic for me.

John_T: That photo reminds me of the Alfred Hitchcock movie from the 60's, "The Birds", which stared Suzanne Pleshette (what a beautiful woman she was...). Very nice!

Photon (Jess): Very nice work with the 135L...Peter sparked my interest into getting that lens last year, and I have to say that it is awesome for the low-light work I sometimes get to do.

tbartick: That surf/beach image and PP is wonderful...

Peter, the casual AF tests that you have posted show the results of great gear(s) and your refined skills to be able to acquire, track, and follow-through your target(s).

Regards,

Edd

Edd - Those are some of the finest fall photos I have seen here on FM. All frameworthy

Shreeni, that 300 f/4 works real well for you, and it is a keeper IMO.
I also like your colour balance and saturation....it is vibrant enough yet not overdone.

Edd is a master of fall photography. I think Jerry Tenn. is also doing a similar photography genre with similar sensitivity for colours and mood.

Undoubtedly. Jerry's composition has a distinct signature for me which conveys a kind of space and tranquility while Edd tighter crops make me appreciate the finite details

Camster, fine pictures and nice lite. (BTW, what is that white stuff everywhere ? )



Thanks Peter, damn snow is everywhere right now with more on the way. We got off easy last year so I guess we shouldn't complain, it is Winter-peg after all!

Gosh, Peter and sritri; I'm touched...
Seriously though, if I have ever communicated "tranquility" and "sensitivity for colour and mood" with an image, then I count that as one of my rare truly successful accomplishments in this fascinating art/hobby...

Lift me right out of the doldrums, y'all; many thanks...
Jerry

Meanwhile, at sunrise this morning at a nearby wildlife reserve, these Canada geese announced their arrival in plenty of time for me to be ready...with the 500 f/4L (Mk. I).

Later, I walked up on a doe just out of my back yard; first peeking at me through the brush, then tolerating a pretty close approach (about 40 feet for the second frame). Autofocus wouldn't reach through the berry bushes in the beginning, but once I "close-focused" manually, the camera held to the deer perfectly...pleasing, indeed...both made with 300 2.8L IS (Mk. I).

Peter,

Hope you had your hat on. He looks a bit angry, and looking for the nearest statue.
