Took a trip to the San Diego Wild Animal Park last weekend while I was down in CA on business. Sadly can't get to Africa, so this will have to do. Two of my favorites from the trip:

Hey folks -
So I'm going to Comic-Con this year for the first time and am spending two days at the convention. I want to bring my camera (Nikon D7000 w/ Grip) and am thinking of just taking one lens (probably a 17-35mm 2.8). I will also have with me on the trip (but not necessarily at the...
Haven't posted here in a while :blushing:
I'm debating buying a Nikon 17-55 f2.8 so I rented one for a week and took it with me on a vacation to the coast. Here's a selection of some of the results of that "figuring out what Wide Angle can really do" trip! Any comments etc. are appreciated...
I always, always forget to stop down my 70-300 to try to squeak out some better optical quality. I think that's my big hinderance, and the fact that the 70-300 just isn't that stellar (good, but not great) at 300mm. Thoughts?

All taken at roughly the same time (by a matter of 20 seconds or so). Different patches of the same clump of wild grass, same lighting conditions in each.
Which color scheme do folks prefer? I've got #2 set as my HD wallpaper at the moment (all 3 shots are cropped to 16x9). My wife likes #3...
Something about it seems off to me. I can't tell if it's the focus or the processing, but it seems the detail in the center is lost.. looks... chunky? Only word that comes to mind.
Almost seems like post processing was a bit over-done.
Thanks KmH, didn't realize the rules had changed. :o
I cropped these to be used as HD wallpaper, and the watermarks actually aren't for protection, but rather as part of the image. I plan on doing a series of shots like this, each one representing a month of the year.
These are the original...
I love the circular logic in this thread.
1. Police's job is to protect and serve, a task which involves knowing what's going on in their area of responsibility
2. Cop stops to chat with someone, at night, on a bridge
3. People up in arms at Police taking steps to know what's going on in...
1. Don't let anybody tell you aren't a photographer just because they don't like your pictures
2. Don't let anybody tell you aren't a photographer just because they don't like your pictures

For just a portfolio (I don't shoot professionally, other than selling the random print/canvas), I use a 500px account, loaded by a domain that re-directs from Go Daddy.
It's in my signature, it's fairly an automatic process.
False. That really grates my cheese.
Photoshop is always thrown around as the cure to the problem of needing to edit photos. For 90% of users, Lightroom or Aperture will suffice. And for those 10% that need more, there's other options besides Photoshop.
GIMP, Corel, Pixelmator, to name a few.
Check Otherworld Computing, that's where I buy my Mac parts from. Apple charges way too much for upgrade parts. For an early 2011, your model numbers should be [8,1], [8,2], or [8,3]. Check your Model Number in System Information to be sure. You should be able to support up to 16GB in that...
My research has led me to this option as well: Tamron 180mm f/3.5, $630.
I thought I had my mind made up on the Tokina 100mm, but this Tamron has gotten pretty good reviews as well. More expensive, but the additional focal length seems advantageous for macro work without disturbing your...
