    Getting some dark shadows in the upper parts of the image on the wall, need some indirect lighting, or up lighting maybe? maybe move the beercan a bit to the left and back getting a fair amount of reflection off it. Again to my eyes it seems like a pretty sweet lens. Hmmnn not sure maybe the 4.5 image looks 'best' ? a lot tougher for me anyhow to tell.

    How about a little mood lighting, the reflection of a gorgeous babe in a mirror and a pair of lacy underalls, draped over the neck of Capt. Morgan ... that'll be an attention getter for your bottle collection. No one will give two hoots what lens you are using!

    Viva, creative lighting!

    ARRRRR Don has a bit of the captain in him tonight! I think a bit of the wild turkey and then to bed for me! Now not considering the undies, I think the shot works better with out the gold beercan, just to reflective maybe?
    and lets not start on the pirate jokes again, I don't have any new ones!

    A foine, foine, talented crew we have here, tonight. LOL

    Yes, the beer can was a bit too out of place. It looks much more ... balanced, now. "Sub-subjects." Two in one night! Curses!

    Ahhh the old photographers trick of using dust as a anti reflective agent, or light diffuser, well done!! Thats my story anyway and I'm sticking to it
