1: i use a longer and faster lens.
2: i use a fisheye lens.
3: the object is bigger.
4: i am closer to the object.
5: i use the centre focus point.
6: i drop my camera along with a lens once!!!!!!!!!
darn! i dropped my mk3 along with 16-35mm 2.8 on to the ground just before an assignment yesterday! the filter was totally shattered! luckly, in stead of the broken filter. eveything seems to be alright! i didn't know why but the photos look really sharper than before after that incident! perhaps the cmos sensor was back to the film plane perfectly!

I remember you said the pics had a red cast as well. This seems to be due to the digic III processing into jpegs. RAW images processed don't have the same problem.
Hmm, looks like I can take another look at the Mark III after all! All I have to do is drop it on the floor.

Opening up the new year with roses (and other plants)...
..nope, there were no fireworks to watch live, but took some time to kick off the new yr & enjoy the festivities at this yr's Tournament of Roses Parade. For those who are not familiar with this grand event, it is an annual tradition for the city of Pasadena and is currently being called "America's New Year's Day" celebration (already more than 100 yrs). An event which culminates in the Rose Bowl Game (also a long tradition, which pits the nations top colleges in American football), which is also played @ the Rose Bowl (multi-purpose stadium).
Here are some pics to share of the performers, musicians, riders, dancers and live animals from this yr's parade.
More pics here:
This yr's Rose Parade's theme..
This yr's Rose Queen, Courtney Lee of Arcadia High School, and her Royal Court.

The Rose Parade floats...for those who love roses and flowers...
...watching it on TV is definitely not the same as seeing it live, in person. Behind those floats, are the brilliant minds of the designers, engineers, decorators, float operators and diligent volunteers. Truth be told, some of the floats don't even have any sponsor but they still made their way into the show.
Some pics of the floats and those intricate yet creative ways they've assembled & decorated the floats....Being made basically from styrofoam & wires, the outer finish materials vary from roses to mangos, yep, mangos....
And guess what, they are already working and planning for next yr's edition...enjoy!..
Remember the elephant clothing....Our Oldhand is most likely familiar with this..
Guess whose nose does this belong to?
Guess what creature is this?
Look closely..remember who this belongs to?
Yup, those are real (dried) mangos and crushed rice making up that ice cream bar...
Hot dog, anyone?

*They parked the floats along a couple of huge streets, at the end of the parade, for public (pay) viewing (usually will last for 2-3 days)...
I think she is the 5th Rose Queen to be from an Asian/Asian-American ethnicity..
She is also the 2nd Arcadia High School Senior, in a row, to be named the Rose Queen after another Arcadia H.S. Senior, Dusty Gibbs, also was crowned last yr's Rose Queen.
