day 2 of learning.....continue to learn, a lot better today! applied some lube to the balloon to make it shine like a mirror! thinned down the paint even more and played lots with garageband to generate tones and vibrations......now if only i had a more powerful and faster flash so i could go to a smaller aperture

Looks like the EXIF info was stripped from the bird photos. May I ask what glass you used on these?

Not sure why Flickr is doing that, but you link over to my Flickr. I used 70-200 f/4 L

It's a puppy that has been hung out to dry. Along with a few unfortunate others. This isn't a very common scene in China.

Apparently they are used in soups and broths. Could go down well in some beer batter though..?

I have no problem with this. It's a culture thing. I wouldn't eat a puppy! Do you think animals we eat here in the USA are treated really nice through out their lives and then slaughtered painlessly? I don't think so.

You should post this question on the lens forum, if you want people to see this. And, btw, lens hood is specific to the lens. You should mention which lens you are getting the hood for.

+1. Then again, Chinese people seem to eat everything that has 4 legs, except stools...

Hey there all. I'm new to photography. I live in Spain as an american expat and take TONS of pictures. I've recently upgraded from a crap little point and shoot to the 50D with 24-70mm L lens. I shot this one today. I'm wondering..with some of the fotos in this thread, theres such crispness and sharpness. How is this accomplished? I can't seem to hold my hands steady enough to keep a crisp shot. Is it just an issue of pickint up a tripod?

The 24-70L is one sharp lens. The overall sharpness will be determined by a number of factors, where you place the focus, exposure and the DOF. I love the colors of that image, but it is a tad soft. For that shot I would have set the focus about 2/3rds of the way into the wall and shot with an aperture of around f/22. I would have shot it on a trip pod and use a remote to fire the shutter...or used a 5 second delay.

And propper lighting play a significant factor in the crisp and "pop" pictures.

and shooting f/22, defraction would have softened your shot..
