The title sums it up really, struggling to get out, and when I do I can't really find the image that was in my head.

Thanks for the previous comments and support, it's always very appreciated.

Jerry

PS, what do people think, someone has offered me the chance to swap a 5d mrk 2 for a 1ds mark 2. Playing about with the 1ds it is an amazing bit of kit.........Does anyone out there have any ideas or suggestions. I like the fact that the 1ds appears bomb proof and sealed very well, but I am also well aware that mp is not as high, and digic processor is older......Go on, please offer some advice or ask someone you may know.

lovely POV and I really like the painted sky. Wish we had other water than rain puddles and small streams round here!
Can't really talk about Canon but have always preferred bomb proof and heavy over more pixels.

A lovely shot Jerry with nice tones to boot. Like your composition here too. I've tried shooting this jetty landscape, and it doesn't work too well. I have a 5D MKII and all I would say is, if your happy with what you've already got and it does the job, then why the need to change. I personally tend to go for image quality over anything else. 1D to me says Pro or as near as and if one day i'm good enough to warrant one, then it's the way forward. But the reality is, i've seen people on EPZ with better photos than I could ever hope for using a 40D. The 5D MKII has masses of potential in the right hands.

Not sure if that helps with your dilemma, but I hope it's of some use.

Like your comp and the light and tones in this.
Unless you are planning to work in all weathers i would stay with the 5D.

The camera you have has significantly better noise (ISO) performance than the 1DS MK2, has a 14 bit processor rather than 12, I have owned a 1Ds MK2 for a couple of years before moving to the 1D MK4, and was never happy with ISO performance above 400. The 1D is very heavy to use as a carry around camera, - 5D a lot lighter. I wouldnt think about it for a second, - keep what you have. The inspiration youre looking for will never come from a camera, - its behind the camera where the photography happens.


This is a nice shot also. The shot a camera produces is NEVER the same as whet was in your mind, or what you saw at the time. Your brain is a vastly more powerful processor than any camera, has infinitely more dynamic range capabilities, and will add atmosphere to a shot, - things cameras cant do. And one area that can help is post processing. As a suggestion, - this image may have appeared to you at the time to be warmer than it looks here, - and if so, you need to warm it in processing, - just an example.

Willie
