    Well I have been absent for a while...busy with all kinds of the usual nonsense....more to follow.

    Well after I fell in the stinky pond/marsh/wetland and got drenched...it was pretty easy.

    *Cough* Please humor me and tell me what lens you used, the depth of field is really flattering.

    I think I like the last picture the best.

    I would love to say some uber expensive canon USM 2.8 super crazy lense. But alas I just have stock junk.... the standard 18-55mm that came with the XT.

    That's all I wanted to know. What ever came of your foray into light painting? Did any of those pics turn out?

    You know. I have that lens. And it's not so bad.

    Well it's not THAT bad. I use it on my rock climbing camera because I don't mind if it gets dropped off of a cliff. I'd be far more heartbroken if I lost something like my 24-105 f/4L, IS, USM. That lens and my 100mm 2.8 macro are my favorites.

    It can't be too bad - it survived the trek to get there and helped you to produce some awesome shots.

    Those are really amazing shots. Worth all the muck you went through to get there -- you have a great eye for photography! Ok - and you had adorable subjects too!!;)

    case closed. hehe nah it is not that bad...just frustrated that it is basically my only lens. Has done me well so far....but I always feel I need just that little extra. Images not so sharp as I would like them. But yes, thanks frognut...lens has been all over in some crazy places, done me proud!

    That's my #1 complaint. Not as sharp as I would like. I need to get myself a good 1.8 lens.

    Just be careful if you get the 50mm f/1.8. That thing might as well be made of glass. Drop it once and it is pretty much junked. If you treat it well it will serve you well though. I've had mine for two or three years now and it still works. It's not getting that much use lately since the 50mm f/1.4 is so much more solidly built.

    Either way as far as f/1.8's go the 50 is a steal.
