On Peebles Island with the 100mm Macro

It's been a great few days here in Upstate New York with high temperatures in the 70s and lots of sunshine. This morning I walked around Peebles Island with my 5D Mark III and my EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens.

Macro lenses are great because they focus close and also will focus at infinity. When I used my 70-200mm zoom and 500D closeup lens for closeups, I'd have to keep taking the lens/filter on and off as the lens will only focus close up with the filter on.

Each of these three shots are cropped a bit, and the Canada Goose shot is cropped quite a bit. 100mm is not really a wildlife focal length.

f/11, 1/180 sec., ISO 200

f/8, 1/750 sec., ISO 800

f/8, 1/500 sec., ISO 400

This next two images are a single file followed by a four file HDR processed image with the normally exposed image file and files exposed -1, +1 and +2 EV.

f/8, 1/350 sec., ISO 800
