I have my first set of seniors this spring, and I actually get my first dslr camera next month, so I have lots of time to practice and better my photography. Reading this thread has already helped so much. I understand a lot more. And I'm looking forward to any thoughts and criticism to whatever I post. :)

Great Shot...man-oh-man....I miss those days when I would have been right out there with him. "No Fear".

As for the photo, just shows, it isn't all about the camera...its the person behind it.



Ha ha. Im 56 this year and i was tempted to put on the gear and go for a spin. I know i could clear those jumps, they were about 40'..but one slip and my shoulder with 3 screws in it would let me know. I LOVE motocross but stopped riding at 51. Every time i hit the deck there was a broken bone or hell to pay........Now i just put along on my street bike. Father time always wins unfortunately:cry:

When everyone comes out of hibernation, let me know if you have had any dealings with CG Pro Prints. Too Good To Be True?

Looks very promising, and 100% guarantee, no risk to try.

I think the answer would be different for everyone. For girls the longer the lens the better, but it depends on the situation. For me I use my 24-70 most of the time, sometimes Ill toss on the 85 F1.8.

The 135 F2 is on my list of things to get this year, and if business is good enough the 70-200 F2.8. I like the bokeh people posted with the 135. :)

Would the 17-40L be any good for outdoor shots?

I use it but more as a "specialty" type lens for my style. I use it when I want the background included. I would hesitate to suggest it as a go to lens.

I wouldnt choose the 17-40 as an only lens. I agree with Tiff, in that occasionally I want a nice wide lens to cause distortion or for some other similar fun effect. My most used lens is the 70-200 2.8.

True...ordered a couple 11x14's to test.

70-200....without a doubt. Second is 60mm macro...perfect compression and awesome bokeh on a crop sensor body.

Rats....Maybe I can use them for target practice to get ready for when the tax man cometh.
