    Cute model!
    To be bluntly honest though, I'd have to say your shoot is quite redundant. It seems to have the center-and-shoot-at-eye-level syndrome. Try using the rule of thirds. Try adding in...

    Very nice colors and contrast. The donut bokeh rings doesn't look too bad either.

    Hey Glenn, It's a 99' with 105k miles. The catch is that it's salvaged. But my mazda specialist mechanic told me it runs good! ;)

    Get a 135mm F/2.5 SMC K lens , or an S-M-C Takumar from ebay for $100-150. The quality will blow away even $1,500 zooms. :)
    Otherwise, I'd get the Pentax DA...

    Hi cptofgondor,
    Notice that when you focus a lens to a closer focus, you'll see that the lens will extend out of the tube. Basically lenses are able to focus when they are farther away from the...

    I found that the macro in my FZ15 was the best with the zoom wide open. I can focus as close as things that are touching the lens!
    With your zoom at wide angle, it's less prone to camera shake. ...

    I personally have the Sigma 28-70 F/2.8 for my *ist DS.
    It's a very sharp lens, but as others have found in this thread, it lacks contrast/color vividness.

    I prefer using my primes over it.
