    Thanks Jack!
    I've just taken a look at PTLens on their web site. It seems quite powerful for the price; I would need to upgrade to OS X 10.5 first since I am still on 10.4.
    I am curious about what you achieved in terms of corrections. Do you mind posting the modified image?

    Regards,
    François

    zHi Francois,

    Here is a Q&D rework. I only spent a few minutes, but ran PTLens, then corrected a few geometric anomalies using the transform>skew tool in CS, then re-cropped. Here is the result:

    Thanks Jack.

    The differences seemed subtle at first glance, and became obvious when I superimposed both images (the original and your modifications) in Photoshop.

    Ideally I should have used a 24 TS-E with the camera perfectly levelled. I am just waiting for some intrepid souls on this forum to test the new Canon 17 and 24 tilt-shift lenses coming up!

    Where is this one?

    Robert, this one is situated on an island about 25 km north of Gothenburg on the Swedish southwest coast.
    Here it is as seen from the north-east.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Canon...

    I had nearly stopped using my Canon for a few months, and was shooting almost exclusively with the M8. Now that I'm using the Canon more, I love the versatility of my 5D Mark II. With this one body, I can shoot portraits, sports, landscapes, low-light, etc.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Canon...

    GREAT shots Mike!

    Also, excellent point as regards the versatility of a DSLR. I agree that any of the current crop of high-megapixel DSLR's are going to be the most versatile camera system one can use. While other choices might do a specific job better, the DSLR is the only choice that can "do everything" and do most of it pretty darn well.

    Excellent images Mike, I particularly like the B&W shot. I enjoy using the M8 too and image quality is of course outstanding if the full frame can be utilized, but the moment I start cropping, the advantage of the 20+ Mpx cameras soon becomes clear.

    Some recent 5D2 shots.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Canon...

    John,

    Yes indeed. I meant to comment on how that shot reminded me of Eggleston

    (Eggleston is relatively tall and made almost every image with his camera level, which added a distinctive perspective style to his images. He also shot a lot of classic iconography of the rural US...)

    Bob, how did they get up there? (And isn't that where Brezhnev and Gorbachev stood during all the big Russian parades?)

    Yes, as a child of the cold war, I have memories of the May Day parades with the leaders of the Soviet Union standing up there reviewing the troops.
    Sadly, the gate was locked and a guard was posted, so three images and a little PS did the trick.

    Went out in the drizzle yesterday to see how the FL 1,2/58mm performed on the 5D2. This combo can not reach infinity focus (by a large margin) so here are some close up samples, some also with the EF25II extension tube. All at f 1,2.

    Thank you, helen! Really surprising what this old glass can do, isn't it. As for PP, not much, a little cropping on a few images, but basically what you see is how they look straight out of DPP.

    Six image pano taken with the 5D and 24-105L lens today. On the way back from Dawson City, finally got a break in the weather. Stopped at a viewpoint overlooking the Matanuska River and the Chugatch Mountains. Image could use some more work on the sky etc, but this is the quick and dirty stitch done with CS3 Photomerge.

    King Mountain on the far right. Headwaters of the Matanuska River at the Matanuska Glacier, about 30 miles to the left (east). This drive along the Glenn Highway from Palmer to Glennallen is one of my favorites. Two lane winding mountain road with great scenery for mile after mile.

    Here is Dredge No. 4 in the Yukon Klondike gold fields (outside of Dawson). Very impressive bit of history....well worth a visit and tour (Canadian park service) if you are ever in that part of the country. Hard to see from this photo, but it is huge.

    Don,

    No, this is about 100 miles northeast of Anchorage and about 20 miles downstream of the Matanuska Glacier (source of the river in this photo). From here, it's about 300+ miles to Chicken and the Alaska/Yukon border.

    Much of the Côte d'Azur; Villeneuve-Loubet, Cagnes-sur-Mer, St.-Laurent du Var, Nice and if you look carefully, Cap Ferrat. Of course Cannes is behind us.
    G10, five shots stitched.

    No wonder it looked vaguely familiar...

    We drove Route 1 North from Anchorage going back to Tok and out to Canada and home last year. We stopped overnight at a campground and later the following morning we stopped at a small restaurant that was near the glacier.

    We actually have a (small) picture on our blog "Alaska - Day 46 Yukon Territory"

    Alaska is truly one of the most beautiful places I've been to.

    Ah yes....I forgot that you had taken a trip to Alaska and the Yukon.

    Was the restaurant either the Long Rifle Lodge (with the dining room looking out over the Matanuska Glacier) or a few miles further down the road, the Sheep Mountain Lodge (log cabin style design)? We stop at either of these whenever we drive or ride out that way. Here's another photo from that area...mountains right behind the Sheep Mountain Lodge.
