Nicely done. It looks like you're going to have fun with that lens.

Focus issues on all for me.
First one seems very underexposed, DOF is maybe too shallow?
Second, focus and WB are off .Not sure about the composition, competing items to the left and right?
Third one, focus is off and framing is odd, but keep at it. learning is an every day thing with this hobby.;)


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Yep.....Pushing the bounderies of my experience (way beyond my skill it would seem).

Love the avatar. Is he/she yours?

Thanks Flo
First one is a little dark because I used a Lightroom B+W preset on it (being lazy). I did think it was a tad dark but wasn't sure if it was my laptop screen or not. Obviously not.
Second one was a hard one as the natural light was bright and from the right. This may be why the WB appears off but that is the true colour of the guitar and the wall. Should have moved the picture and the other guitar. Composition was down to my own cropping skills or the lack of.
Third one was just trying out the close-up/macro skills. Needs work but thats part of the fun.

Focusing was left down to the AF and looks like it needs some MAF tweeks to be pin sharp. Just printed off a focus test sheet. Going to play with a tripod, a tape measure and a calulator for the next few hours it seems :rolleyes::lol:.

Sorry to hear that. Always hard to lose them, sometimes harder than people. My boy is just turned 10 and starting to slow down a bit now. Dreading the day.....
