A deffinent yes from me. Very well done.
Lots to see and photograph. I used a Sigma 18 - 250 on my Canon 70D when we went from Amsterdam to Budapest on Uniworld a couple of years ago. The two lens you are taking will serve you well. The 18 - 55 in town on tours and the 75-300 from the ship. Lots of castles along the way. I didn't take a tripod. It should work for you as the water is smooth and little to no vibration from the boat. Take something to protect your gear from the rain. Oh, and watch your head when going under the bridges. Enjoy.
You have had the lens for 3 days and created 2 captures worthy of sharing. Keep doing what you are doing, you have the eye. Enjoy the lens, learn with each image and grow with each experience. When you are ready to step up to more expensive glass you will know it.
I have used mine attached to only one lug for a year without issue. The second lug is there to be used when using a battery grip. Check out their web site.
Shucks, I thought I did. Only my second post so still learning.
Looking back at some of my older shots I found this. Taken in 2006 with my Canon Digital Rebel, kit 55 - 250 lens at 155mm, hand held, iso 200, 1000 sec, f11 near La Jolla, Ca. Did a little tweaking in LR. Comments always welcome.
Got lucky at Point Lobos State Park the other day and happened upon this mother with her day old twins. Less than 2% of Pacific Sea Otters have twins. Usually one is abandoned and dies as they cannot tend to two. Monterey Bay Aquarium was notified but would not believe it was a twin birth until the docent sent photos. None had been reported in over 30 years.
Canon 70d with Sigma 18 - 250 at 250mm, f8, 1/400, iso 1600. Shot in deep shade, hand held. Cropped and touched up in LR.
Thanks everyone. I'll upload something soon. Fun to be welcomed from so many areas of this great country. I am looking forward to what I can learn. So far I have seen posts from Autrailia to England, gotta love the Internet. Tom
Somewhere I came across the name of this forum and it struck a chord with me. Being 70 and slightly off kilter, as a lot of my fellow seniors are, I had to look into it. Glad I did. Lots of good info from a large variety of fellow photogs.
I started shooting in my teens with a box and went from that to weddings, receptions and class reunions. Decided I don't like producing for others so hung it up for a while. Got back into it with a Digital Rebel and now on my 3rd dslr, a 70D. I do mostly travel and landscape, Yosemite is not far nor is the Monterey coast.
Geez, what a long winded intro, sorry will do better.
