Brennan, I love your style of post processing. I'm a huge fan of your photos. I've been following you on flickr for a few weeks!

I'm trying to flip my 1d2n for one of these... Not having much luck.

That seems to be the general consensus with the 50L. Razor thin DOF at 1.2 that most people don't take into consideration. I suppose it's true of any fast prime, but even more apparent at 1.2. I can see how that narrow of a DOF would make it appear as though focus was missed, especially if you don't take the "human" factor into account if you focus/recompose. If you were to move .38 inches when recomposing, it would appear as though you missed on the focus. I've been studying up with the ol' iPhone 4. :lol:

You boys and your fancy toys. I don't need a DOF calculator to tell me to stand back farther :P but it did take some practice for it to come easily without thinking about it so much. Newborns don't move much so I don't think it's as much of an issue but I would worry about 1 eye being in focus and not the other, if I stood too close.

Because he gave excellent critique of excellent work! :D Again, for your second go at Photoshop, great job. Did you end up using "fill, content aware" on that hole? I'm always up for learning a new method if that's not how you did it. It turned out great!

yep, actually thats pretty much the only thing i know how to use, give me any other task and i'll probably sit and scratch my head for hours :lol:

Don't feel bad... When I figured out how to use it, you would have thought I found the cure for cancer. :lol:

I really need to buy some sensor swabs or pay for a good cleaning. Hairy viewfinder and lately some serious sensor dots showing up at apertures as low as f4.

Lots of old stuff but hey I am a student

I was in a camera shop getting a new bag and one of the salesman was explaining to a couple that the 5DII is better for landscapes (I agree), but that the 7D is better for portraits (I beg to differ). To me the 7D is a better sports lens with the better AF and FPS, but otherwise the 5DII kills the 7D in portraits and landscapes.

What do you guys think?

Crop for portraits? Not sure why it is better.
