I think this came out quite well, but I'm not entirely sure... I do still love the lens though. It really does perform so much better than the kit lens.
What lens did you get?

I have the Sigma 17-70mm. It is so much better than the kit lens, and worth every penny of the ?250 I paid. The exif for that photo: 1/400, f8, @70mm, ISO200.

Shame about the spider web under the closer valve... oh well, I wasn't prepared to clean it off for a better shot. :D

EF 50mm 1.8 II i assume, but i can be wrong because the "bokeh" seems a bit too nice for 1.8 with the cheapo 50mm. Could be 1.4?

Mine for the day...



I'll be showing some of my textural experiments in Austin sometime in July at the Austin Art Space Gallery. Kind if excited because it's a local show (I get to go and drink!) in a place that shows mostly paintings (my photos work better in shows with a lot of paintings for some reason.)
