I was playing around in the backyard with my daughter, who I never get tired of photographing and shot these. I'm still trying to find where the true "sweet spot" is with this 50mm lens. I think these are getting close to where I want to be. Unfortunately, I lopped off her foot :( so I'll try it again soon. Thoughts and/or critique appreciated.

i think the first one is really nice. Nice DOF in both

the colour seems to be a bit off in the second. maybe you could warm it up abit in PS?

She's adorable! I love how striking her eyes are in the second. You might want to consider upping your shutter speed to a minimum of 1/60 to avoi blur from those fast little arms and legs :D

Thanks all, I appreciate the comments. Still trying to get used to this new lens. When you guys are trying out a new lens and trying to find it's best aperture for a sharp crisp focus, what method do you use? Just trial and error, or is there some method?
