Ok, here are some pictures with my new lens..24-70mm f/2.8L This first one was my friend's boy at the park on the top of the slide. I shot it from below. Do you think the leg looks funny? f/4, 1/400, ISO 250 @68mm This second shot was taken at a birthday party. This little boy put the firefighter's hat on for a second and I shot the picture. I wanted him to do it again when the people behind him were gone, but he didn't know me and was a little nervous so he ran off. This is as good as it gets. f/3.5, 1/80, ISO 160 @52mm I feel lucky that this one is in focus at 1/80... These last two were taken at the beach. My daughter was dancing with this piece of seaweed. No need to critique both. Just wondering about the Rule of Thirds on these. The first one has my daughter to the left a bit and the horizon is cut nicely into thirds, but the second, my daughter is more centered, but I felt like the line of the seaweed helped offset it. What do you think? Thanks again for all your input!!
