    Perfection

    Last wagon load of hay for the evening. It is quite late and light has faded. This is the first time I have pushed the ISO with the 7D. Note that the name of the hay wagon. I found it ironic and got quite a giggle. I hope you will too.

    Perfection

    I am still working with manual exposures. Shutter speed 1/100, F8, ISO 2500, Focal length 200.

    C&C, as always are welcome. Thank you for looking

    I was more amused with the expression of the guy on this shot, Marie.

    lol, Willie.

    If you saw an old fat lady running down the road in her bare feet and PJ's, pointing up a big honking camera at you, you'd be laughing, too.

    Interesting shot - agree with Jiro,first thing I was drawn to was the expression on the guy's face lol. He appears to be a bit shortsighted.

    Considering the low light, I see you had to go to ISO 2500, it's a clean photo. no doubt due to the twin Digic 4 processors. I have the 7D too and I'm very pleased with it especially the 8fps. for wildlife.

    Now that really made me chuckle. No wonder he was really smiling.

    John, indeed he was wearing coke bottle glasses and missing some teeth!

    IMHO, I think 2500 ISO is pushing it, even for the 7D. To its credit, my Canon XSI only goes as high as 1600, with serious degradation. Its best images, again, IMHO, are at 400 and below. On the flip side, I am grateful for the opportunity to have taken that shot at all.

    Willie and Katy, they tolerate me on the hill, and sigh when I am out and about.

    I think they all hurry to get by me, as they know my car is subject to erratic and abrupt starts and stops.

    Re: Perfection

    Agree re. the 400 ISO-I like to keep to that limit myself no matter what the 'experts' who write the reviews say but as you say,when needs must then up it to get the shot.
