    My wife and I were doing a "Quest" game in Salt Lake City where you have to follow clues around the city to solve the riddles and finish the game.
    I was taking some random pictures during the quest and somehow I like how this one turn out as she was looking around trying to figure out the riddle. :)
    This was with the 50mm 1.4. As an interesting test I brought that one lens only and found out if forces me to look for more composition ideas than carrying too many lenses.
    Still, I wish I have had the FD 100mm F2 with me or that I could afford a 85mm 1.2L too! LOL



    All just natural ambient light. I want to get a reflector soon too.

    Click on it for the higher quality Flickr link if desired as here it seems to looks some detail.

    Thanks for looking!

    Yes, anyone that pretty who lets you buy all of those lenses is definitely a keeper. :p

    Oh, and nice bokeh!

    hahaha so true! I really feel privileged as she is fantastic, sweet and understanding. Heck, she always says she is my assistant and helps me carry lenses etc, even my super beast Vivitar 120-600mm some times :D

    Yes I agree about the bokeh, really liked how it turned out which is not always how I feel. So much to learn, but is a blast specially with our digital era were test shots are not wallet killers. :)

    I occasionally do the same thing, definitely makes you think and go after things differently...also gives insight to the lens IQ if cropping later for a distant object shot with a shorter than normal focal length[/QUOTE]
