Nice one!! It reminds me that I'm going to Disneyland in a couple weeks, AND that I need to do more HDR.

I was probably seventy-five to a hundred feet from each of the subjects.
With the mirror 500mm, it's easy to be stealthy. These individuals had no idea I was photographing them. The lens itself isn't any longer than my 24-70mm. Couldn't be anywhere near as inconspicuous with my next longest FL lens (70-200 f/2.8 VR), which is twice the physical length of the mirror 500.
With the fixed focal length and f-stop, it's best to have the subject be in direct lighting to get the fastest shutter speeds. I cranked the ISO to 1000 yesterday to help with that. 500 would have gotten me what I needed, but I actually wanted to have the extra noise. And, with that ISO in those lighting conditions, my shutter speeds were routinely in the 1/3200th range, so there was zero worry about camera shake blurr. Any softness to the images I got was related to the amount of attention I paid to ensuring perfect focus.

Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

A couple that I did this morning. Haven't touched HDR for some time, but wanted to give it another go.

I'm looking at getting the Canon 7D. Anyone have one? Anyone have any opinions about it?
