Thanks mate.saintly said:i saw the same skys this morning. nice pic mate.
you wait until you start discovering the benefits of RAW processing
you got more MP than me now!
I've just been processing some RAW files. 16-bit TIFFs are over 80Mb each!
What I am also impressed with is how powerful my iMac must be. Everything still runs super quick.

Did you bracket at all, because a HDR of this could look pretty tasty? Or is it already a subtle HDR? I really must calibrate my monitor. :?
I didn't bracket or using any HDR technique. This was captured in jpeg then straight into PS Elements with some minor Levels adjustment. What a Philistine eh?!
Cheers mate.stuworrall said:very nice pic george and im uber jealous of your 50d! re the FPS increasing with the grip its only a nikon thing so it doesnt happen with the canon gear
by the way have you checked out the reviews for the Sigma 50mm f1.4? seems to be getting a bit of good press as the canon 1.4 is an old old lens (but still good)
The 50mm Sigma looks tasty and worth considering over the Canon.
I'm a big fan of Sigma, especially their performance vs. cost. I do hear about the odd AF reliability issue but I tend to manually focus most of the time anyway.
Anyway, there's a sexy sunset right now so I'm off to the fields with my Manfrotto and Lowepro...
