It's been too quiet here in the Canon POTD thread... Here are a few contributions from me.
1. A rather unsatisfied looking Woodhouse Toad
2. American Bullfrog
3. American Bullfrogs. Yes, it's posed.
Thanks for looking.
Very nice Brandon and good seeing you revive this great thread.
I like the last one of the pair of frogs. I think that first one looks like he should be in a 'frogs playing poker' painting as the one with the bad hand.
Long time no post...Wrangell mountains with the mighty Copper River in the foreground.
Just outside of Glennallen, AK.
Beautiful TenD and nice seeing you back
Bummer I cut the legs off. But I was so excited to see this bird in my back yard and get so close I wasn't really concentrating on the framing!
Nice catch, Spinning! I bet all the other birds disappeared rapidly when he/she flew in. A little sharpening on the feathers would really make the image pop.
Great shot of the 6.
Getting back into automotive photography....here's another one.
Lexus IS350 by Faisal Khatib, on Flickr
Like the composition in the Lexus shot, but find the bokeh in that tree right over the car slightly distracting. Maybe it is the washed out sky contrast with the branch shape. Either way it draws my eye away from both the car and the line of the driveway/road.
I think it might also be a function of the leading lines in the grove of trees and the c-pillar roof line all pointing to that dark, and almost in focus tree.
Camera: Canon EOS 6D
Focal Length: 17mm
Shutter Speed: 30 secs
Nice cool tones. And good job getting your subject to sit still for 30 seconds.
My thoughts exactly! Great shot, ANP.
Fiddling with my 5D on the side of a Dobsonian Telescope :
Excellent shot Gaza. Are you sure to took it from earth though, two moons!!!
I prefer the subtle colors in the very beige one. I think that the B&W could use a bit of contrast to push the blacks a bit darker. Also, not a big fan of the out of focus one filling the middle of the frame. All those leading lines in the gills plus the curve of the cap on the in focus one to the immediate left of it draw the eye to the softness.
Some interesting comments kgosden. I did try increasing the blacks on the grey one but I thought it was to dark; personaly I like the out of focus effect but my eye is drawn to the in focus one. This is a better perspective than the ones I took last year from the side and above; I like the first one as well - there is a bit of chaos with the fungi pushing against each other and I like the the sharpness of the gills.
