    Today was hot and sticky after thundershowers this AM.
    A perfect day to take some family photos with the 20D and the new 85 f/
    1.2L II.

    Of course not everyone wanted their picture taken:

    Mr. Divs, however, loves to pose for the 20D:

    Now if you are wondering how to get such a nice soft look, you'll have
    to look deep into Mr. Divs' eye for the secret to the diffused
    lighting:

    Poor Buster needs some Visine or something, that eye looks painful.

  3. SWEEET! Jewel looks good!
    I'm sorry to tell you that you utterly killed this in Photoshop and it looks
    like crap! Are you getting that much noise that you have to over-animate
    this image?

  4. Not at all. Spaniels are known for their blood shot eyes. Buster
    looks good. Great to see him, I haven't seen him in a while. How's
    his knee?

  5. Beautiful shots Bret! There's a guy somewhere in the neighborhood who
    charges big bucks for his pet portraits. He displayed a few on the
    pet shot wall and they are average. Your work blows his away......by
    miles!
    Beautiful color and tack sharp. The pic with Maui and Divs is so
    sweet.

    Your Gary Fong diffuser works excellent, and in my opinion is a wise
    investment. Sure beats an alcohol bottle!
    Hugs to the whole family.

    "Over-animate?" I think you are talking out of your ass again.

  7. LOL! Oops, I forgot that you reached the limitations of the old 20D and had
    to overcorrect for the noise and poor resolution. I'm guessing you cropped
    this so much that you threw away at least 80% of the surrounding image.

    His knee is great. He came thru his recent surgery like a trooper.
    However, in the past month he has been battling a nasty case of
    pancreatitis. He was throwing up and wouldn't eat his food and didn't
    want to pee or poop. But he's over that now and has returned to 100%.

    Is that whole menagerie yours? And I thought *I* was overbooked with
    critters.

    How do you get the cats to stay still? One of mine is psychic: she
    moves a couple of milliseconds before I press the button, and all I
    get is a snippet of tail, or a blur. :p

    Now, if I could just pan at light speed, I'd be all set.

  10. How do you get the cats to stay still? One of mine is psychic: she
    Be thankful she doesn't curl up against you while you sleep, like that other
    Psychic cat that lives in the rest home.....:^)

    Funny you should mention, the other cat does... used to sleep on my
    chest when I let her, now just on my arm, leg, etc. Maybe I could
    rent her out to that resthome (hospital?) and have her be the anti-
    Grim Reaper.

    Or would that be anti-Katvorkian? :)
