    "Hello, It's me again."

    Okay, enough with the obscure Lyle Lovett references...

    I wanted to post some pics that I took with the canon f1.8 50mm I just got for my birthday last week. I am loving this lens. Although I must admit that at 1.8 focusing on what's intended without blurring too much of the image can been a challenge. Well, a fun challenge. No post was done save resizing.

    Anyhoo... C&C

    I also got a 50mm f/1.8 last week and can't put it down. I love the expression on photo #2.

    It is a fine lens indeed. I've really enjoyed it indoors as well. That's my neice in pic 2. That's her, "I'm breaking the rules" look. ha!

    1. I find this a little confusing to look at: a lot of the subject is out of focus, and there's a lot of dead space that's not adding a lot to the photo.
    With 3, I'm not sure what I'm meant to be looking at.
    2, however, is a beautiful shot, so well done. It would have been nice if your niece could have taken up more of the space in the shot, but otherwise I really like this one.

    Interesting, 3 is not so great, but the other two are good.

    #1 you missed the focus on the flower, the focus is behind it. You could consider cropping out some dead space to the right of the flower.

    I'm not seeing this. What portion of photo #2 is too dark? I'm asking because I'm a relative beginner and I would've considered that shot perfect in regards to exposure.

    Maybe his niece is a little dark, but she's not enormously underexposed.
