    I use my Dad's Rebel XT and have only two lenses: a crappy Sigma 28-105mm, and Canon's cheaper f/1.8 50mm prime (which I love). Given that it's all pretty basic equipment, and I'm new to photography, I think I've taken a few good shots. For example:

    My Tabby cat Toby:

    And my Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Taison:

    I'd really appreciate seeing some of your good shots using a "nifty fifty" and preferably a lower-end Nikon or Canon SLR. Hopefully we can get a pretty good collection going. Thanks!

    Wish I had something to contribute to this, but I don't have my nifty fifty yet. :( Nice shots though, tack sharp, which from what I hear is the prime (haha) selling point of the nifty fifty.

    Yosemite, at the end of August when nearly everything is dried up. Also, took this in super daylight. Crazy me, stacking ND filters to kill the sun, lol

    Here are a couple more from that visit. I guess you can tell how much I love to shoot running water. BTW, those rainbows were really there. So awesome to catch them on film.. err, CF card like that. LoL
