If you are like me you like gadgets and cameras are gadgets. I like to shoot all kinds of things including photos (bad pun intended) so if you have an image you took that you like or dislike or just want to be a post wh**e feel free to post something here. If you have questions on how an image was created just ask.

I'll start...I took this 30 minutes ago.

Canon 5D MKII Canon 400mm 5.6 L with Canon 2X II Extender. ISO 200 F11 (I think) and around 1/60

Is the image hosted elsewhere and you just entered a URL or did you upload it? If the latter, do the former!

I took that one May, 7th 2011. It was my first attempt and it came out well. I used Canon 5d MK II with 400mm f/5.6L lens.

To make them not show as thumbnails they have to be hosted elsewhere and when you put in the URL of the photo you have to uncheck the box that says download and store locally.

I like photography buy my domain name expired and I just renewed. So I'll post images when the DNS catches up.

I shoot with a gripped Canon 30D. Main lens is a Canon 24-105 F4L IS. Second favorite lens is the Sigma 50-500mm ("Bigma"). I have several other lenses that are no where near as nice as those two.

I love macro photography but don't have a true macro lens. I shoot with a 50mm f1.8 and use a set of Kenko extension tubes.

When you link be sure to uncheck the box that says something like download image. The default is "on" and it's a PITA when linking images as it tries to download to the server here and they're ALWAYS too big.

I shoot with a pistol gripped Canon 30D with selectable fire switch. Main lens is a Canon 24-105 F4L IS with a Flash Enhancer. Second favorite lens is the Sigma 50-500mm ("Bigmo'fo") with a suppressor. I have several other lenses that are no where near as nice as those two as they are NYS compliant.

I love macro photography but don't have a true macro lens, only a WMD lens. I shoot with a 50mm f1.8 and use a set of Kenko extension tubes with selectable chokes and a 6 position adjustable neck strap.
I fixed it for you!!!! Don't be ashamed to tell us what you really use!! ;)

A couple I found. I have alot of travel and sports photography on my other PC. USMC Vet, The guy from your avatar and his father(The Busch's)were on that boat in the last pic. His boat a 3 300 HP's on it! The Zodiacs are the secret service.They stopped to fill it up. Very nice personable people! Lousy pic, but all I had was the cell phone!

I like this one alot even though focus is not perfect and I could crop it better.
