    I took my new camera, Canon 50D with Sigma 150mm, out today to try it out. Had a bit of troubles with focusing, but just think I need a wider depth of field.

    Quack! I wish the rock was not there, but they were both not in focus when they past the rock.

    Plating I think I would like it better if the DoF was a little wider

    4 A little bummed I cut the wing off but I did not have much of a choice from where I was shooting. Focus looks to be a little off as well.

    5 Sculpture on lawn. I put it against a black background as I thought the trees and people were distracting. Any thoughts?

    Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    The 4th shot is my favorite. As you pointed out it is a tad out of focus, but it still a great picture none the less :)

    My D90 has supersaturated reds as well. I went into the white balance and pulled 'em back just a bit. 0,G1 It knocks it down a smidge. I have these colored magnets (yellow, green etc) so I just kept changing the settings and taking pics. Turned out that small change helped while not changing the other colors much.
