Thank you WCKSer

BTW the 2nd picture was shot in the rain so if you look closely, you can see the tears from the rain drops in the background

Wow! I didn't notice it if you didn't mention it. Did you use any water protection gear to cover the lens and camera?

Not on the Canon and the Bigma...

This was for @ a 2-day raptors in flight workshop. The event was about 3 hours west of Toronto, and the entire 1st day was raining cats and dogs.
I flew into Buffalo so had to travel light, but luckily I found an almost empty 40-pack spring water bottles shrink-wrapped in plastic on the premise, so I pulled off the plastic wrapper and put it around my Nikon with the 400:

This is so beautiful. The last one is just terrific light in reality. Love the colors and back ground as well.

I just picked up a 4MP 1D classic for dirt cheap and the 4MP CCD is stunning and for some reason i prefer the B&W from this camera more than my SOny 36MP

Thanks,

I love B/W too, especially with narrow DOF, it tells a lot from a photograph
