So I got the idea from this threadand I did a search to see if there was one for the entry level canons. Nope. So here we go! Let's see if we can beat those "Post your best 5D shots" threads. :D


I'll start off with my favorite picture I took. My sister, taken with my XTi and a Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 (I miss that lens)

Here's another one of my favorites at Huntington Beach Pier. (17-55 f/2.8 IS)

Great pictures ALaS - all of them.

Threads like these may persuade many that the body is more often then not contributing the least to picture quality.

I see I should use my 17-55 more ...

I love this thread!!! I've been saying for so long now that it's not the camera, it's the person using it!

All pictures shot with my Rebel XT (that's the 350D for you folks over-seas) and except for the first image which was capture with a borrowed Canon 300mm f/4 "L", all images were captured with either my Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 or my Canon "Nifty Fifty" f/1.8.

Jim,

The Nifty Fifty would have yielded a much nicer perspective to picture #1, IMO. ;)

Jim,

The Nifty Fifty would yield a much nicer perspective to picture #1, IMO. ;)

I appreciate the comment...but in this case I don't really agree with it. My shot of the Tigers was taken at the Cleveland MetroParks Zoo and I really don't think that 50mm would have come anywhere close to being tight enough for this shot. When I'm doing animal shots, particularly at some place like a zoo, the one thing I ask myself is "what is the shot about?"...in this case did I want the shot to be about the walls? The tiger's habitat at the zoo? The crowd watching the Tigers? No. I felt the shot was about "the tigers" and from that point of view, I really don't think having much more of the habitat in the shot, say from the use of a 50mm lens would have really added anything (if anything, it probably would have made the shot waaaaay too "busy"). Basic rule of photography...simplify and eliminate unnecessary elements.

Now I will admit that perhaps there is a bit of an issue in regards to perspective, but I think that was simply more due to my position relative to the tigers more than focal length. In other words...I was simply standing in the wrong spot! LOL!!! Unfortunately as is so often the case with zoo photography, I really didn't have too much of a choice. There's a relatively limited "viewing area" and sometimes you just have to take what you can get :D.

Anyways, again I do appreciated the comment, but artistically I just don't agree with it in this instance.

Peace,
Jim

I've been lurking this forum for a while now and thought I'd throw in a picture for my first post.

Taken with my 400d and a 75-300mm f/4-5.6. No PP on this one except for resize and watermark. EXIF intact.

Awesome pictures people! I'm loving it! :D And, I totally agree, it is the person behind the camera, not the camera. The lens may help in quality, but a good image is a good image. I see a lot of pics taken from higher marked cameras and a lot of them don't impress me. But then again, a lot of them blow me away too.

PhotosGuy, I love that thread as well!
