Although most of my work is on film (find out why), here's a gallery of images I've made with the Canon 6D (full review here).  

The First Plant To Change Color

September 20, 2014
Canon EOS 6D with EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
ISO 200
f/4.0 @ 1/250th sec
No significant adjustment;
Camera color mode "Landscape  5,1,4,0"

Parthenocissus quinquefolium (Virginia creeper) is one of the first plants to turn color in the autumn season.  Actually it turns in the latter part of what is officially still summer.  You may even begin to see the change in late August.  By mid- to late-September, the leaves are bright red, as you can see here.

Nature Walk On A Perfect Day

September 23, 2014
Canon EOS 6D with EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
ISO 100
f/5.7 @ 1/400th
No significant adjustment;
Camera color mode "Landscape  5,1,4,0"

Autumn color is one of the nicest things about photography.   After a couple years of drab color, the hope of a good fall foliage season becomes all the more special.

I like prime lenses.  Probably the first thing I'd do after getting a 6D body would be to fit it with a prime.  Favorite walkaround combination, believe it or not:  the 40mm f/2.8 STM and the 100mm f/2.8 USM.  For some reason I like the 40mm better than the 50 when photographing scenery.   And for the autumn, that 100mm is great for isolating color when the surrounding trees are still green.  My review of that lens is here.  (Please help keep my site on-line by shopping through these links.  Much appreciated!) 

The 6D is phenomenal for outdoor photography.  Landscapes don't move that fast, so the AF is more than sufficient.  If you're a landscape photographer looking for awesome without the price tag of a 5D3, then I know what camera to get.

Homemade Pizza, 2:10 Bake Time

September 19, 2014
Canon EOS 6D with EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
ISO 6400
f/3.2 @ 1/125th sec
Some post-processing

The photo was cropped to the 9x12 aspect ratio, mainly because there was a stray crust that didn't do anything for the picture.  (This was sort of a last minute shot before I said "That's it, time to eat!")
Photo was taken in very dim incandescent lighting.  If you're thinking of doing a lot of photography in these sorts of lighting situations, this is currently the best choice as far as I'm concerned.

Untitled Sunset

Canon EOS 6D with EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
ISO 800
f/4.6 @ 1/200th
Saturation adjustments

The retreating sun illuminates some cloud bands near the horizon.  There wasn't enough time to find an unobstructed view, but I think I like this.
It also works (maybe even a little better) as an 8x10 crop.

Moonrise Over a Corn Field

Canon EOS 6D with EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
ISO 3200
f/9.1 @ 1/125th
No adjustments

Colors and brightness are exactly as-obtained, straight from camera.  I'd have to check which color mode was used in the camera.

f/7.0 @ 3 seconds

This one required some work after-the-fact.  It's that way with every DSLR;  some of the things you'll want to do are going to be possible only in post processing.   Many pictures will look just fine straight-from-camera, but there's always that one.  Even with work, you may view it later and decide it needs something.

It really should be that way, because you should be the one who makes those kinds of creative decisions.  Every picture is a little different. 

Here's what the Canon 6D does do:  it provides a sharp, high-res picture with good color rendition and tonality. 

Many times, the in-camera settings will be all you need.   I put this waterfall up as an example of a photo that needed a lot of adjustment, probably because the lighting was a bit dreary that day.
