    These were taken at a local burrito shack today. These were the only three that I thought were OK...

    These first two are of one of the skaters they sponsor.

    Sparklers! This one was taken after it started getting dark.

    This one was an attempt at panning, but I had too long of a shutter speed. While so much is wrong with it, it is still interesting.

    Take it easy on me, alcohol was involved in the taking of these.

    Focus is way behind the subject in the first two. I enjoyed seeing the people with the sparklers. Last shot's not doing much for me.

    The first two, the focus was set about 3 feet behind them as I was using my 50mm 1.8 that does not auto focus on my D3000. I was setting the focus where I thought they would be and hoping for the best.

    The third one, I the more I look at, the less I like it. I like the trails the sparklers leave, but where did the arms go that were moving them? I know I can do better.

    White, I agree, it's all in how it is cropped.

    In your Exif data it states you had it at 22mm which isn't magically a 50mm. And since there are no 22mm primes (or are there ?). I bet it's fare to guess you were using a wide angle zoom.

    You are correct. I was mistaken on which lens I used for those shots. The majority of the skating photos were taken with the 50mm, but some were taken with my 18-55mm. Next time I will check the data before posting.

    for the skating shots, a fill flash would do two things. 1. lighten their faces and 2. let you capture the motion even better
