Slangkop Lighthouse by hougaard Slangkop Lighthouse by hougaard
I can't remember who told me that there's no reason to switch from a 40D to a 5D, I've had the debate with many people on DA. I think it's total bullshit.

Processing this shot really showed me the 5D's superiority.
The red sky is so smooth, not a speck of noise, That little lighthouse is so damn pin sharp at F20, and so is the rocks at the bottom border. There's not a single pixel of abberation around the lighthouse. Pushing the exposure of the RAW file up or down by a stop does nothing to the qaulity. I can't wait to see what the mk2 will be like.

The place is slangkoppunt( snakeheadpoint ). This is on the cape peninsula, the mountains you usually see on the horizon of my seascapes.

Was the water there like this? Or was this due to your camera.

Either way..your pictures have persuaded me to take a trip to Africa sometime in my life.

Probably one of the most beautiful waterscape I have seen. The colors and hues in the sky are superbly handled and the composition is simply perfect.
A really grand job that goes right in my favorites!!!
(I dream of taking such shots!)
