Nice lilly! Be a bit careful overcooking the sharpness (evident in the halo produced by the dark stamens on the yellow background).

I like the effect of the water droplets. Are they morning dew, or bottle spray?:D

Thanks for pointing that out Gerry! I was watching for it around the petals the whole time I was editing And never even looked at the stamen! All natural rain there, no cheating (this time) :lol:

The 50 f1.8 can be a tricky lens, especially in low light.

Start by doing a test in broad daylight... Something like this (shot with the 50 at f2.0)

QUOTED IMAGE

My target (I focused and then recomposed at the upper corner of the Hughes book). If the photo is blurry everywhere, try shooting at high speed (say 1/1000... that's when you need plenty of light)

If it is still blurry, try tripod, live View, Manual Focus at 10x magnification, mirror lockup and delayed shutter release again at high speed. If you still have a problem, I am afraid the lens may have a problem, or the camera/lens combined tolerances are off.

I will try that once I am off work, however, I feel as if it is the lens. My T2i had a similar problem, super soft images produced in combination with the 50 1.8 II, or maybe I'm just terrible at taking pictures. I also remember trying live view and it would focus, lock in with the green box yet the whole image would be blurry still. My 60D won't focus in live view with the 50 1.8 II if my life depended on it.

So I think I'm starting to get used to shooting in full manual mode and all the other adjustment modes besides full auto or CA. However, shooting with the 50mm f/1.8 which is supposed to be a super sharp lens, I always, always get blurry results. Should I have a faster shutter speed, and put my ISO higher?

best idea is to post up some examples with the exif attached and we can see what your settings were, and it's always easier to see the problem while looking at a pic. don't be shy!!! we were all in your shoes at one time :cool:

one more idea. you might try THIS (external link) site for practicing and getting a good idea of how it all mostly works. it helped me understand stuff a lot better when it comes to shooting modes and the exposure triangle as it's often referred to.

Coolness.... 60D Lounge... :cool:

Yo D - as not all of us are on here as often as others - maybe the 'Themes' you mentioned could be like a 48 hr thing, or at least a day overlap thing?

here's one of moi last summer taken by a friend... an excellent focus fail ;)
