I haven't had a chance to go through everything yet, but I thought this one came out pretty good and wanted to post something before I head to the concert tonight. I need to work on this one a little more... I have a RAW for this one that I didn't open yet... this was the JPEG.

This was taken with the Canon 1D Mark III, 400 f/2.8 II on a monopod, and 580EX for fill. Settings were Av, 1/200s, f/4, ISO1600.

Decided to add another crop...

Awesome profile shot. When you work on the RAW it could definitely use a little brightening, but the composition and the bokeh are excellent. :thumb

I need to bring in the shadows and not blow the whites... I think the head is exposed OK but the breast could use a little more detail. I haven't even worked with a MIII RAW file yet, so I need to figure out what I need to do in order to do that.

Awesome shot Mike, you are loving this MkIII I can tell.....that crop I am amazed at how little noise there is for being at ISO1600

Yep... this thing is pretty clean. I'm going to fiddle with the RAW and see if I can get it even cleaner... but I have to figure out how to load RAW files first... all my software is pre-MIII.

Mike, there's no update for RAW image task or anything for the MIII?

In case you wonders what is Lucisart, is a plug-in for Photoshop and here are a pair of examples.
