    It dropped my keeper rate to about 1 in 4. I would have been dead in the water without IS on the 70-200. I didn't want to tripod since I like to be able to move freely when I shoot.

    For high ISO they aren't bad.

    I love 2, 3 and 4. Five might be a bit warm for my tastes.

    I think you brilliantly captured the moot you set out for, an evening on the town. I think that mood almost requires a little graininess or softness in the images.

    I would suspect the couple will be very very happy.

    Nice idea but poor execution. I don't think you gave your clients a quality product. Limiting yourself to using "only available light" tells me that you either don't understand how to use off camera flash to help you get a great photo or that you're too lazy/or don't own the right equipment to really make a good photograph.

    If you're into poor lighting, color and pictures that aren't sharp then go for it.

    Dude seriously. WTF. Please do me a favor and not post on any of my threads in the future if you are going to make blanket statements like that. IF you have been in a similar situation as this and can offer a critical comment that is of benefit to me, please do. But as far as I can see, you can not.

    Thank you. I know they are already stoked about them. Which is all that matters. I was really surprised at how well the 40d handled shooting at the 1600 & 3200 ISO. I didn't even have to noise ninja the photos at all. I agree that I could tone back the warmth on that photo.

    Dude...that WAS a critical comment. You're a professional, you charge people for professional photography. What you posted here was a challenge to your professional skills and I personally don't think you delivered. You want critical comments you'd better be prepared to take the bad with the good.

    But since you're fishing for compliments, the second pic and the last pic are the best out of the group. I personally don't care for the harsh shadow that came from your on camera flash on the last pic but the ideal was cool.
