Canon G Series Image Thread
Share some photos taken with the excellent Canon G series cameras!
Here's one of mine to get started, taken with a G10 at Centennial Park in Ellicott City, MD:

Wow, is right - to all three of these photographs on their own merits!
Amin, what amazing good fortune to come upon handsome buck! The first thing I thought of when I saw that was the movie The Deer Hunter. Really, how can one not admire such a regal looking animal. Was it a total surprise for you to look up and see him gazing at you? I probably would have just stood there with my mouth open!
Maynak, that is an incredible photograph of a Water Strider! I must add that they grow them much, much larger in your country, than ours...or at least the versions I have seen her in the northeastern USA. You captured a lovely combination there - the soft, almost tactile water and your strider's crisp, clean lines. However, I have to say I am in love with "Made for each other" - wow is an understatement. Your Spotted Owl and his mate are pure simplicity and perfection.

Thanks for your kind words, BBW (sorry, I don't know your name yet). I agree, the Buck looks almost like a sculpture in Amin's image and the surrounding vegetation quite surreal to give an overall effect not unlike a painting! The Pond Skaters we have here are about 1" long (body size), this image has been cropped a lot but yet retains enough detail, that's the magic of a G9 raw file!

Wonderful description of Amin's image! True it's very much like a painting.
Aha, well your strider's are still bigger than the one's I've seen, and I'm quite happy about that since I was swimming with them.
My name is actually BB. Well, it's a nickname but that's a long story for another time and place.

Thanks, Mayank and BB. BB, I did sort of freeze when I saw him. Then I ran to my wife to get the camera, and to my amazement, he hadn't moved an inch when I got back. I remember wishing at the time that the G10 had the reach of the G9.
Mayank, I love 'Made for each other'. Really lovely composition.

Great story, he must have known you didn't mean him any harm.
Yes, I have to reiterate that "Made for each other" is a winner.

G10 / high ISO (I don't recall exactly) / 2 second exposure.
Toward the end of a concert by Teresa Christina, when things were calming down. Note that the last remaining dancers become ghosts.
I tried "correcting" the white balance, then undid the change. The lighting was red, so that's what colors felt like at the tim.
This photo fails all technical considerations of a "good photo". Not only the color balance, but also highlight clipping in the bar area and the loss of detail in the dark areas in a large proportion of the image. Clearly, I would have gotten a technically better image with a large sensor. I would not have been carrying a large-sensor camera, however, so I would have missed the shot.
