    Fantastic shot ANP! WOW! I know lightening shots can be difficult, so how long did you have to sit there with your aperture wide open?

    you're shooting at 1.8 which is a very shallow dof and its not really the lens' sweet spot. i'd be stopping down to f2 or 2.8 even better, you will notice a significant improvement in dof and contrast stopped down a little.

    there is nothing at all wrong with the flower shot you just posted from a focus/ sharpness POV imo.

    goes without saying that shooting in raw will give you better all round images and more control.

    this shot was taken inside our living room with a couple of sb28's for light.
    the background are the trees in the backyard outside the window.
