    "Portraits" made with short focal length lenses. AUGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

    "Fill" flash that is greater than the main. And most any on-camera flash.

    And, most definitely, zoo animals. That and snapshots of statues.

    I agree that C&C is good, and some of y'all do it well.:D It is a shame tho, that a lot of people who are here get defensive when you give them something they dont want to hear. :er:

    Careful, Pugs. You keep going at it with the penguin stuff and Anarctican will find you, strap you to a chair, prop your eyes open a la A Clockwork Orange and make you watch Happy Feet, Madagascar and March of the Penguins for three solid days.

    My cat just read that, arched her back, hissed, scratched the monitor, then fired up my laptop to send you a nastygram and your IP address to PETA. :lol:

    Eesh... I'm not sure which freaks me out more, A Clockwork Orange or the penguin flicks! :lol:

    Actually, I have seen March of the Penguins and I really, really enjoyed it! Happy Feet made me ill, though.

    I will add penquins to my list, Pugs, because I respect your C&C. It is always straightforward and to the point.

    I usually view threads by New Posts rather than staying with a particular forum. I bugs me to see three new nearly identical posts about "Which (fill in the blank)" on the first page. It seems there is the same phenomenon as when someone nearby yawns...... everybody yawns. It's not like tripods, lenses or camera bodies haven't been discussed before.

    While I'm at it.... a New Post asking "which lens" but don't specify which system they shoot. If it's about Nikon, I might be of some use. If it's for another, I've just wasted two clicks. C'mon people, don't you realize how valuable my time is? :biggrin:

    Yeah.

    Not to mention...my mouse is pretty old, I'm not sure how many clicks it has left.

    EDIT

    People really need to start providing that information in the thread title... I don't know how many "gear" threads I've clicked on only to see "Nikon" in the first post...

    If that had been in the title, I wouldn't even have wasted my time clicking on it.

    I don't have anything against Nikon, but when it comes to gear, I can't help you at all.
