    Remember that just because something looks cool (to you) doesn't make it a good picture.

    As a rough rule, nobody cares about stuff that you see when you're just walking around.
     
  8. There isn't really that interesting here in the Dakotas, this happens to be a event going on downtown. Location location location :hs:

    I always thought the f/1.8's were intended more for low light situations, since it lets in (if that's the proper way to describe it) so much light that even moderate light hitting the sensor washes the photo out pretty bad. In the first pic the sky is blinding.

    If that's not right (probably isn't), someone correct me.

    The stack of rocks is cool. Don't like the pictures though :dunno: Too much crap in the background like random parked cars and shit.

    Outdoors is a great place to shoot f 1.2...... so long as you have some neutral density filters with you.

    exactly. but as you're out taking pictures, don't think about what others are going to think about your shot because the only person that matters when it comes to general shooting is you. not anyone on this board, your neighbors, etc...
