Thanks Adam!
And for your photo all I can really think of is seeing if it would work in b&w. With the pink features the dog has though that might not work too great.
You could always take photos of dogs that aren't white, too :p


Edit: Just had an idea that might work.
Make a duplicate layer and convert it to b&w. Change the layer to multiply and erase everything except where the highlights are then put the opacity to whatever looks good to you. Hopefully that helps!

Thanks, Kelcey! I'll give that a try.

No problem! Hope it works, it's a really nice shot. And I've never seen a double merle before, so your photo gets extra cool points :cool:

Does anyone here have the Canon 17-55 and this lens and use them both frequently?

I feel that a f/1.4 lens would be nice during the dark winter nights of Scandinavia when streetlights are all that illuminates the cities. I would want the 50mm to increase the shutter speed for shooting "moving" things f/2.8 doesen't really cut it at acceptable ISO numbers when photographing people.

I have both but if I'm out and about the 17-55 is the one on the camera. If it's a night scene I would normally be using a tripod anyway and not all that concerned with the very shallow DOF nor moving objects. I do also use the 50mm 1.4, but mostly for portraits. Occasionally when I'm out specifically to play around with the camera I will opt for the 50 1.4 for the wider aperture and playing around with shallower depth of field.

I used to pull out the 50 1.4 for inside shots but since I got the Sigma 30 1.4 I find it to be more versatile inside on a crop. I have a soft spot for my 50 1.5 because it's the first lens I bought after the kit lens, but sometimes I feel it's a little neglected.

the flare in some of them is kind of distracting... mainly the big glowing green ball
