    Hi all, i picked up my Canon 40D today, and I'm loving it tbh. I've been taking a few snaps, nothing special, just random photos so i can get a feel for the camera. All were took with the 50mm 1.8.

    Here are a couple of them, you can C&C if you like.

    Cheers!

    be careful with that 1.8 aperture. in the second shot you can see as parts of the same flower are not in focus. the beauty of this lens is not to shoot it at 1.8 all the time but that it can get that wide when the light conditions call for it. the sweet spot i think is (on the nikon version at least) at 2.8.

    sorry about that then. but still the flowers are not sharp. the stems are and part of the petals but the rest is blur. so a bigger f number is in order.

    Maybe he didn't want all the flowers in focus. He may have made a creative choice to use f/2.8 to get a shallow DOF for this shot.

    Too much green in the first shot. . .correct that in Photoshop or whatever post-operation program you use for your camera.

    that might be the case but as i have stated in my first post, having parts of the same flower in focus and the rest of the flower blurred is what i dont like. it may be just me.

    Cheers for the feedback people, as i said in the first post these are just random, nothing special shots, just so i could get a feel for the camera. It's all appreciated though.
