I completely would of have done something else with that view man .. the 1st one seems nicer but the fact that the rose is blurry and so bright .. it becomes a distraction .. you should of have laid off the flash on that one and I think a darker version would of have been better .,
the second one is like blah .. plus the harsh flash is not doing it for me .. although its not always bad to be center when taking a picture in this occasion for both shoots the rose is to center for my taste ..
good concept try better execution next time ..
those are my comments and I'm a n00b so take it as you like man ..
nikefiend68: That second one is a great shot. Has that classic/epic look to it. Good eye.
As for me, I just got my SB-80DX (pictured below). Can't wait to get a chance to use it. Hopefully tonight!
SB80Dx? Is that an older model speedlight?
I'm not sure how much older, but yes. All the reviews I read said it beat the hell out of the SB-600, and was definitely comparable to the SB-800. Its recharge time is a little slow, but I figure some better batteries will help that.
Anyone got some tips on shooting people...so far I've been doing most landscape shooting and a couple self portraits but it seems like shooting people is a whole different ball game than just shooting some mountains or something.
