Playing With My 28-135EF 70-200mm f/2.8L and 2x EF Extender

Sometimes when you go birding the success rate is zero. We were in a heavy wooded area and I only had with me, my 28-135EF 70-200mm f/2.8L and 2x EF Extender.....undaunted I started looking for subjects to test my capabilities of the lens.

Pretty Scenery: Fields and Meadows (Sounds Like A Magazine)

A few weeks ago, we spent a weekend in the North Conway with friends, the same weekend we visited MT. Washington and I finally found my moose :).

Our friends live in the area and they are familiar with pretty scenic areas the tourists are not aware of. I think this location is in the town of Jackson, NH.

Comment to my readers:

I posted the below comment under the link below and wanted to be sure you see it. I have the best time blogging, taking pictures and sharing. Thank you for being so supportive!!!

Learning and Playing With Cropping
Do you know what I love the most about blogging? Your comments!!! I want to hear you opinions, suggestions, and information like Greg just posted. I found my blogging is learning process in addition to sharing my work.

When I find a subject I need to photograph my subject all different angles, focus in and out!!!

Thank you for reading my journal.



The composition of the cropped version is a bit more pleasing. The subject matter is more specific and organized. The sepia tone works well with this subject as well. One thing to keep in mind when cropping is that you are killing your resolution and therefore your ability to print crisp images of any real size. The best bet is to compose that same shot in the field and take the picture with the intention of not cropping. Your printed images will appreciate you for it.
