    Re: 7D or 70-200 2.8 II?

    Neuroanatomist, unfortunately I really don't have a lot of fast glass at this time. I use the 24-105 as my general purpose lens, I have a 50 1.4 for low light and moderate length portraits, and then...

    Re: The "Wow" Factor

    Re: Bride and Groom (C&C)

    Brent,


    Overall, some really nice images, I second Sean's opinion on two of his points. The second image is well composed but could use some lightening up in the shadow areas. I personally think...

    Re: Carrying camera in big city

    I think D-SLR's have become such common place these days that you really shouldn't have any problems (unless your walking around with a 400 2.8 as alexandria said!) I've walked around Boston and have...
