    Re: Post Your Best HDR Photo

    I love this one. I like this form of HDR. It brings out what it really looked like when you were there.

    Re: When does one "outgrow" his camera??

    You outgrow your camera when having a better one would improve your photographs. It is not easy to improve your photographs with a new body though. I know when I bought my XT I was disappointed in...

    Re: Shooting the family dog.

    Does it need to be strictly posed? Have them interact and just take photos. Take posed but then let them chose which they prefer. Here are two of my favorites.

    Re: is it true ???

    The lens works great on the 40D. It is one of my favorites for telephoto work. It is a little heavy for everyday use, but it is capable of taking great photos.

    Re: Advantages of full frame?

    Daniel,
    Yep, thats why I didn't pretend to know anything about diffraction. It looks like I need to get my photo books out again. I was confused by some of the talk when the 50D came out, around...

    Re: Advantages of full frame?

    Re: 135L vs 100 f2 Which do you prefer?

    Thanks to everyone for your responses. I have decided on the 135L even if I have to save my pennies for a little while. Hopefully it will be in stock at B&H by then.

    Post your best Black and White Photo

    When people look at my photos, most do a double take at this black and white. It may be because 99% of mine are in color, and this one isn't. But anyway, here's mine lets see your best B&W photo.

    Re: Looking for the ideal portrait lens

    Good choices, both lenses, can take some great photos. I am curious though what people think about having both. They are both very good, are they similar enough though that a little bit of footwork...

    Re: Cute Puppy!

    It looks like there was something that was in the immediate foreground like a thin grey stick that is completely out of focus but which lowers the contrast. It is a little distracting to me as well....

    Re: 50mm f/1.4 or 85mm f/1.8 on a 1.6 Body?

    I have the 50 1.4, and I like it a lot. It is not perfect, its pretty soft in the corners at 1.4. It cleans up nice at 1.8 and 2.0 pretty well. It is a good focal length in my opinion for natural...

    Re: What Do You Think of These?

    I like the composition of the second one too. But I think you should crop the first one. It has better detail in the shadows, and you can see one persons face, which to me is a big difference. I like...

    Re: Canon annoucing 500D tomorrow?

    It looks like a forgery to me. The 5 is slightly below the 00. Also there are no microphone holes in the front. Good fun though!
