    The watch is pretty and reflects your light well, good focus in the first photo but I'm not sure of the focus in the second. Also, the dirt on the bag is distracting.

    What was the light like there? 15seconds wow. Nice picture though I really like the 1st one I just wish the side of the bag hadn't been cut off but the DOF is cool. What zoom lens were you using though that goes to 50mm and is at f/1.8

    EXIF:
    Camera Model: Canon EOS 30D
    Flash Used: No
    Focal Length: 50.0mm
    Exposure Time: 15.000 s
    Aperture: f/1.8
    ISO equiv: 100
    White Balance: Auto
    Metering Mode: Matrix
    Exposure: aperture priority (semi-auto)

    yeah, I saw that too. unless you were using tubes of some sort and using the 50mm 1.8 which makes the most sense to me (that or you're playing with the exif data)

    The lens is fully manual so it says 1.8 no matter what. I was at f 5.6 for the first pic and 35mm. and f3.4 for the second and 35mm again...

    EXIF says it was shot with a 30D, signature says you have a 20D. Where you playing with someone else's camera or did the exif record wrong?

    What's happened to you the past few days? Do you have a new dealer? Formerly you were a modest Canon shooter, but in the last few days you've bought a Linhof ball head, and two Zeiss lenses...

    It's almost like you went from shopping at Best Buy to one of the city's high-end, prestiege camera dealers and a salesman has taken you on as a project. What gives?

    I got a good deal on a 30d so I upgraded just for the larger LCD. And all those lenses are mine. I have ADD with all my hobbies lol
