    Congrats...now you just have to save a little more for the $55 lens hood...and keep an eye on the amount of dust that lens sucks in.

    I just use the Canon lens hoods. They do have third partly lens hoods that cost a lot less, but the quality isn't as good.

    I have the Canon EW-83J lens hood for my EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM.

    Oh, you have to update your sig too.

    Don't break it. And DEFINITELY don't throw it at someone who is attempting to steal a sandwich. Just LET them have the sandwich.

    On the first one, I would have tried a different composition; learn about the rule of thirds. Focus is a bit soft as well.

    On #2, I like what you're trying to do, but you cut off the lens strap on both sides. The flash diffuser is a bit blown out, too.

    These aren't bad...try to learn from criticism and use it constructively. Keep shooting!

    Edit: What? Oh. :blushing::blushing: Hey, nice job scoring the new lens. :mrgreen:
