    These were all just toying around nothing fancy or paid, first two were trying out the new cheapo lens (50mm f/1.8) last two are a couple months ago with the 28-135 that I got with the 40d

    I'll have to get some of my film photos scanned and uploaded, this digital stuff is easy but man I do miss my film


    50mm lens



    Sister against the palm tree in the back yard, off camera flash about 4 feet to the left, PP was exposure (lowered -.50) and some spot removal in PS, didnt owrry about freckles as she loves her freckles.

    A friend and her daughter, smoothed both of their faces (out in the sun all day hanging next to the pool) and removed some items from the bushes, looks like I missed the white bar :doh:

    these are with the 28-135 lens

    Little boy running into the lake, his parents LOVED this in B&W, i wanted to get his face but they loved this as is. :dunno


    Just B&W with vignetting and shadow adjustments, I do know its OOF, best of 3 as I was sorta rushing to get that pic, was getting ready to leave and he wouldnt stand still :mamoru:

    and little boy hiding behind a tree

    The only ones im 100% happy with are the first two, the 2nd two could have been better, but I didnt go prepared to shoot anything interesting so I only took the kit lens

    Now, if I take the digital, I take everything... :o

    decent pics. Nothing crazy exciting or anything, but they're fairly competent.

    My only real criticism is the smoothing of the face in pic of your friend and daughter. They look like porcelain dolls. The trick to smoothing is to leave enough skin texture to make it look natural. Back off the opacity of the layer or lower the intensity of the effect...

    I like number 2. Maybe a bit of unsharp mask on the childs eyes to help with them not being focused well?
