    A little more effort on hair and makeup but otherwise I think the bird should go far.

      I’ll tell the bird if I can find him Grahem , trouble is they all look the same to me so I’m not sure how I’ll pick him out. 🙂

  2. Hi Merv,

    I really like this shot now. All the attention is really pulled into the Pelican and we aren’t distracted by anything else. I still marvel at the level of detail that you’ve managed to capture with this Pelican. Its a fantastic job.


  3. They funny birds the old pelicans. We had one, (I reckon it was the same one) land on the dam around xmas time every year, for about 5 years. I reckon our farm was his stopover between Busselton and Albany, after he split with the missus, and had to go and visit his kids in Albany!!
    Sorry mate…bad story!!

  4. I hope you were going to say 6 image stitch for the bottom one.

    You wouldn’t be selling this BBQ would you? there is a great commentary in the questions.

      Oh yeah Thomas, forgot to say it was a 5 image stitch, you were close mate!!!

      And the BBQ , well I’ve got the exact same model and I paid $5 for it so be careful not to get ripped off, do your homework on this one !!!!

    Thumbs up for the C&V version. Merv if you were coming from the 40D now, what do you reckon you’d go for, the 5D2 or the 7D?

    I guess that’s always the case when a camera is 1 yr old and another ones on the horizon.

    A bit like cars really , if we were sensible we would wait and by a near new used one, but human nature and all……

    I’ve seen the shutter thing before. built to take it nothing to worry about.

    Cheers muzz

    Are we seeing you on the boat ?

    Yep I’ll be there. I’ve got a feeling that CF is working on a synchronised swimming routine with Mark so take that underwater housing with you!
