i've had the 50mm 1.8 long enough now that i'm pissed when i have to use the POS kit lens. i'm ditching it for something else ASAP. had a long flight back, so i dicked around in Lightroom quite a bit. still don't have any idea what i'm doing, but oh well. opinions and comments appreciated. www.flickr.com probably my favorite shot of all ... they had a GIANT french flag hanging in the middle of the arc de' triumph (spelled like an american, i'm sure). cloudy outside at normandy. night shots on a moving boat are a BITCH they were handing out those fake mole stickers at dinner one night.
