Cullercoats Harbour 03 Feb 2014   It was a nice morning to take the camera out     John

A bit of a handfull !  

Time to resurrect this topic maybe.   A Wheatear, (migrating in for the summer) it was very close to where I parked for a walk yesterday and was still around when I got back, so I got the camera out

Hmm, I know its not the CC thread but this one still looks like its got lots of noise Mr W AND, the horizon is way way crooked. Oh, it looks a little over sharp too. BUT, other than that it looks like a great spot to shoot. I'd love to see more.

Hi HB ..

 

Thanks for the Heads-Up !! I know the horizon is wonky .. it was a quick hand-held shot in a howling wind !! :rolleyes:

 

You have just confirmed what I have been suspecting !!

 

For the past few weeks I have been struggling with the output quality on my old 20D. Despite playing with image quality settings and various other things, it has steadily got worse !! Camera is also flashing "Error 99".. which is the focus lock on its way out.

 

I have been in touch with Canon, and they say the image sensor is going down .. and have given an estimate of £300 to replace it !! And further work may be needed !! :blink::blink: No thank you !! :angry:

 

This is a shot taken a few weeks ago with the same camera, and the difference in quality is obvious.

So it looks like my trusty old 20D will be confined to the scrap heap. :(

 

Got my eyes on the new 40D .... If my missus will lend me the money !! ;)

 

Wiggly. :rolleyes:

Nice shot Judy, if you don't mind me suggesting it, try standing back a bit, and then zoom in.

:) :) that damned pylon has spoilt many a good opportunity to get a good sunset.

 

I was just playing with new camera when I took that one, but was struck by the combination of lines and leaves and wires :) when I down loaded it to pc.

Hi Den,

 

I have had a long look again and in the context of the shot and why you liked all the differing aspects i think that in this case the pylon enhances the composition.

Yeah.....like you said man.........thats what I thought :) :)

 

Needs to be seen full size on a widescreen TV, that really lights the sky up. I really do think it is one of the best pics I have taken for a long time :)
