    Took these of my daughter today. Used my 50mm 1.8 for all of them. I feel my focus is getting better. Trying to pay attention to the eyes a bit more. I would like some cc on the images and the pp. mainly the eye color. Does it look ok? I brought out her blue eyes a little more in pp.

    I am sure you understand, but it is difficult to CC photos of one's loved ones.


    I will just say, your teeth look fine. ;)

    Also, your daughter is very cute... must be from mom's side. ;):mrgreen:

    I do understand. I am in no way going to be offended by any cc. This is my main target and want to shoot it the best that I can.

    And mom said thanks... I say :x :grumpy: :thumbdown:

    Did you PP the color of your teeth because you can't tell you smoke. I mean the better edit would be to quit smoking of course =P but picture looks completely fine.

    Ya, I did pp the teeth. I thought they looked ok but I didn't know if they came out to white. I'm on day 7 of Chantix... I've had 1/2 of a cigarette today!!!

    Good for you. Hubby quit smokin in December of last year, and I have been off em for 6 years now. I know how hard it is. Pics are cute. What were you looking for the C&C on? Focus, composition, or overall?

    I like the looks of 2 and 3 but they still seem to be a a bit soft. I am having this issue too with my 50mm. I have it on autofocus now and am going to play a bit with manual focus to see if I can get some sharper images. I took some of my friend getting ready for her wedding and they all turned out a bit soft. Way softer than my 18 to 105mm lens.

    I quit in 2003. I still miss it, but not in the "craving" sense anymore. I just miss the idea of hanging out, smoking, drinking, causing trouble ...

    Good luck with it and keep it up. I just danced at my daughter's wedding. I'm sure you want to too!

    Thanks for the encouraging words... I have quit before but it was much harder than this time. The Chantix ROCKS! No cravings at all... Just trying to break the habit.

    Ya, I am either getting nice sharp images with the 50 or real soft ones. I seem to do much better if I'm photographing a still object and I use MF. I just can't get that "on the fly" focus down.

    These photos are encouraging to me though... They are MUCH better than what I was taking in December.
