Welcome to POTN and/or the T2i section LuckyBird, Jdizzle0305 and wizanne86! For those undecided, just jump in, this is a great camera and price vs. features it is the best option, IMHO. The saved money can go to glass, which is surely the place to invest.
Marrian, I like the new evolved copyright with your name on it! You have posted some really interesting locations! Some seem a bit over processed for my taste, but I enjoy them. Are they all HDRs? I see some haloing that may suggest so, but it could be some post process as well.
Jdizzle, also interesting sets, now, those look even more like HDRs are they? I believe most are a bit lacking in contrast for my personal taste (specially in the blacks) but that could have been the intention. At any rate, you'll have lots of car fans here to share the enthusiasm
Wizanne, great to hear you are enjoying the camera and that you are studying it. That's a great combo and a sure recipe for good photos! Don't be scared to share them here... worst you can get are some pointers on what some of us would have done different (according to the subjective perspective of each person giving advise), at best you will get lots of praise for you images! So, as you see, you have nothing to lose. Looking forward to your images.
n4ck, you continue to provide amazing pictures, and from realms other than landscaping, you truly have the eye for photography.
KillerClown, great lady-bug shots. I agree with Al, they tend to fly away when they hear the focusing motor
Al, great macros, specially the second one. You can see each sub-eye on that thing! Have I told you I hate wasps
TeleFragger, for me, a diffuser of any kind makes all the world of difference! The harsh and frontal shadows of a straight on-camera flash are as close to horrible that sometimes I think its better to aim for a blurry image rather than a front-flash-lit one. Diffused, on the other hand, you get a lot more subtlety and depth to the shadows. DigitalTuned posted a few pages back some comparisons of direct vs. bounced flash that were pretty conclusive.
Marubozo, I really like the glass-in-glass concept! What seems weird is that the moment you took the image, you have a bloby look on the rim of the large glass which looks almost like echo gel rather than water. Perhaps a split of a second later you would have caught some individual drops of water? Again, nice concept. I agree on the seamless background. Good luck on the 580EX, I agree they sell like hot-cakes in the for sale.
Rivest, congrats on the Manfroto. Please report any differences... I am curious as if the name really carries that much better feel to it.
Annie, I thought I have explained already that wasps and bees are strictly forbidden here!!! Nice shot! May I ask what ISO are you using? Picture looks a tad noisy, but the size of the noise also suggests a large crop. I'm curious.
Ofwiah, nice surfer image! Crisp splashing water and nice DoF.
Dirkkristen, great to hear about all the great shots!! We look forward to them!
DigitalTuned, no idea you were Puerto Rican, un abrazo desde el Ecuador!
