    PCThug,
    Nice set of portraits. I really like the last one, you nailed the flash and ambient light in that one. It looks natural, yet interesting.

    This last one was really more of an attempt at different PP techniques and tools, i dont normally dodge/burn or clone a lot but for this one i decided to remove aerials and a lightpost to try and achieve a somewhat timeless quality.

    I used the same image twice but the other edit had exposure considerably lowered to bring out some detail into the blown out sky so i just used the sky from the 2nd picture.

    Oh, you know, just the cuteness factor. Not really that I'm proud.

    First day shooting with my new 70-300mm. Shot for an hour and got one keeper. :3eyes:

    [​IMG]

    This was early morning and there wasn't too much light. Checking my exif, the shutter speed was 1/30 @ f/5.6 and an ISO of 800. I think I could have gotten a sharper image if I'd bumped up my ISO a stop.

    Of course, faster, vastly more expensive glass could also solve the issue. I've already spent $2500 over the past couple months, but I can see this hobby getting dramatically more expensive in the coming years. :3eyes:

    Ive got the sigma 70-300 f/4-5.6 and i get some pretty good results..what I do know now is that I go manual and set the shutter speed to something quicker than 1/100 ,now if its dark I can bring the exposure up using software and I get pin sharp images but this all depends on how bright the day is. Thats my technique and probably not to everyones taste.

    I hear ya - thanks! Lesson learned from this session: Watch your shutter speeds!

    I've decided the lack of color in my shots from yesterday morning calls out for b&w. Much better, I think.

    ahh i quite like that shot, actually no, i REALLY like it haha. although i would crop it a bit more on the right, to get rid of that bridge, but im picky with those sort of things :p

    great job on the overexposed sky in the middle, but yet not underexposed buildings!
