    Re: Deterring Crime

    I agree with Bill, though you may want to check your local laws on using bear spray on a human. If it is life or death, sure anything goes. But a pick-pocket or peeping tom may be a different story....

  5. Re: Lenses hold their value? I'm beginning to wonder!

    Don't forget to consider fred miranda for selling the lens. They have a huge buying pool and a lens like that will most likely sell in just a couple hours, assuming you list it at a comparable value...
  6. Re: Please share your thoughts on this: 1000D to 2nd-hand 50D

    Have you considered the ef-s 17-55 lens? You lose a good bit of the focal length compared to the 24-105, but you will gain low light performance. I have the 50D (and the 17-55) and I love the camera....

    Re: Basketball

    Nice photos. Looks like you got some good results from the 85mm.


    I like #4 the best because you can see the facial expressions and it's a good capture of offense vs defense.

    Re: Need photographing food tips!

    Dave-


    For me, the close-up in the third set doesn't look very appetizing. It is hard to see what it is. I think that is a dish that needs to be seen in it's entirety.

    I agree with John on most of his points and I will add one for pic #3. I think if the cross were lowered slightly so the circle with the adult and child were unobstructed, and had the cross just...

    As tkerr mentioned, I would have preferred the results if the bowls had been filled. As it is now, it is hard for me to appreciate the subject (water) because of the distraction (bowl).
