I have to confess, I turned up the saturation but the lighting was all done by the sun, and man what a climb to get to where I was standing, I was walking up a hill and he was only 5' from me but he was 12' in the tree, think of that grade.

You don't have to confess to anything,that's digital photography.If that's all you did it's much less than many do.I try as hard as I can to get a shot that does not need pp but I still end up doing a little.

Brass, I'm shooting the Canon 20D and Canon 100-400L image stabilizer most often. I have access to the three top Canon bodies and all the top fixed focal length Canon supertelephoto lenses through Canon Professional Services, and have used them and love them, but day-to-day it's the 20D and 100-400, which comes in as pro gear for less than $3,000, with the 8 Mp Rebel XT for a backup body. Most of my wide-angle work is done with the Canon 17-40L.

What are you shooting?

Canon S3 IS, I hope to upgrade for advanced hobby photography and keep the S3 IS for my day to day regular dumb photos. I want wicked awesome picture quality but nothing like the 5D (not what I call pocket change especially as a college student.) tongue.gif but I wouldn't mind selling prints at some point. I may be up in Ely this weekend, look out for me. grin.gif

How will I recognize you? grin.gif

Any of the Canon DSLRs on the market produce wicked good image quality, as long as you have glass that's up to the task. Over and over again, I tell folks to pay more attention to the glass than the body.

I know a bird shooter from Ohio who started in film and switched to digital with the Rebel XT. He couples it with Canon's excellent 500mm f4 image stabilizer (big bucks), and his images are among the best avian photography I've seen. If he dropped $4,000 on a higher-end Canon body like the 1DMk2n or 5D, not to mention the $7,000 for the 1DsMk2, he wouldn't have been able to afford that top glass.

No, sorry, I don't know Terry.

Oh, and 4x2. That'll make it easy. I bet Chevy didn't sell 100 4x2 white Silverados in all of Minnesota in 2003.

Rub it in a little why don't you! tongue.gifgrin.gif a bit of weight in the back does wonders for me. I know you have seen my specific truck before, an Elyite owned it before I did. smirk.gif Ely is a small town.

And just think, he started out with an Olympus system! shocked.gifgrin.gif

Do you think he has a good place to photograph at North Chagrin Reservation?

    • Hmmm.  My cheapest camera is a Wildgame Innovations unit but I haven’t been a great fan of it.  It’s not the NANO version but though, just a cheap one I picked up in a small shop during a hunt cuz I felt I NEEDED one right then.   I do like my old Moultrie and am looking at the M50i as a much updated version of it.   Still comparing their line up.  If I just bought now, that’s what I’d go with.   That WGI 360 sounds like something I have to check out!
    • I have been a Wild Game Innovations fan for most of my time using cams.  I really really like the NANO version they put out.  Compact, only take 4 AA batteries, great battery life and the pictures have been very good quality.  That being said, last year I won a Moultrie Game Spy 2 at a company party and have been very impressed with it.  Same as the Nano, takes only 4 batteries and pictures are very good as well.  These two cameras are now my "go to" and I won't be needing to spend  100's on other cameras when these work great.  The one camera that I am thinking about getting though is the WGI 360 degree camera.  Supposed to be able to take pictures 360 degrees so you don't miss anything moving behind where a normal camera can't detect them.
    • yeah the last couple years have been rather tough for me, but all is good and I can't wait to get back into the stand.  Are you still working the Deployed Soldier/Disabled Soldier hunt at Ripley?  We stopped going as it was just too early in the season and weather was always so darn warm.  Wish they would have held it right prior to the "big" hunts at the end of the month.  Always a good time though.    You'll hear more from me in the time to come and look forward to hearing all your reports of the big one!!!
    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
