2011 has been a great year for wildlife photography and there have been some amazing photos taken. Below is a collection of some of the best, from locations including the UK, US, Australia, Kenya, Ecuador and Ethiopia.
Florence in Italy is one of the most beautiful Cities I've had the pleasure of visiting and what follows is a brief photo journal of the City, and surrounding areas. On this trip I carried with me my robust, yet somewhat aged, Canon EOS 20D digital camera supported by the impressive Canon 15mm Fisheye lens.
Venice is a beautiful City which offers many brilliant photo opportunities. Below is a small collection of photos of Venice taken by photographers who have managed to capture something special about the City floating on water. Don't forget to check out Dominique's post 'How and where to take less conventional photographs in Venice' for a slightly different perspective.
Forrest Tanaka has produced an excellent video about astrophotography. So if this is an area of photography you'd like to learn more about, it's a great idea to go through his videos first.
This is the first video in a series which covers telescopes particularly suitable ones to go for. so I'm guessing Forrest will be adding a number of further videos which cover the other aspects of astrophotography.
Here's another photography competition along the theme of 'eyes'. Picture complete are running it with a first place prize of $200.
If you fancy putting your photography skills to the test, why not enter this architectural photography competition?
The theme of the competition is colour in architecture and the deadline for submissions is July 15th 2013 and the competition is open to everyone. With $1500 prize money up for grabs it's certainly tempting. The only snag is the $25 registration fee, but if you're feeling confident that you've captured a photographic marvel, why not take a punt?
I was fortunate enough to visit the London 2012 Olympics during the athletics, so thought it would be an ideal opportunity to try out the Canon 50D (thanks James). I've previously tested out both the Canon 40D, and Canon 60D, so putting the 50D through its paces seemed like a good idea!
I took with me my trusty Sigma 70-300mm telephoto lens, as well as the Canon 17-40mm F4L for any wide-angle shots.
Now this is painful. On Ebay, there's a Canon 600mm super telephoto lens with a Canon 1D Mark 3 attached going for sale at a rock bottom price. Why so cheap, sadly it's all rather badly damaged by salt water.
At current prices, the Canon 1D Mark 3 is about £1,000 just by itself, whereas the Canon 600mm F4 super telephoto is a cool £10,000. That is one expensive accident. Thank god for insurance eh.
