These both suck, unfortunately, but we need some pictures up in this thread.

This last shot was taken @ 480mm from a rooftop. It was really windy and my tripod was shaking too much to get a sharp shot (i didn't realize this until after i took the shot). To top things off, i captured it under tungsten white balance. I ran it through gthumb's 'enhance' operation for a quick fix and it did an admirable job, but the picture just didn't come put.

as always, click for full size.

Gleek, you're terrible .. but that was exactly my thought too.

Aphasia: this is probably a little late but do you remember what settings you shot the two youth group pictures with? A 70-200mm lens seems like an odd choice for portraits but those came out remarkably well.

I would say they were taken at about 150-180mm and F2.8, the second one(louise) may have been F4.

And no, i dont think its an odd lense. Its actually the perfect one for me. I only have the prime 50/1.8 elsewise, and the 28-135 isnt nearly as sharp on the long end, and 50mm is too wide to get a closeup. And as they were taken as candids(most of the images that day was taken from the side of their playing) so they are "in action" shots, so a 70-200 is the perfect choice.

The bike trail I ride on runs alongside the old Illinois and Michigan canal. Back in the 1800's it was a major canal from Chicago to all points north and south. Its been abandoned for several decades, and is slowing sliting up. It still a great place to see some nature. These are shots of a couple of the old canal footbridges (or at least what's left of them) from the late 1800's. Is there a limit to how big images are supposed to be in this thread? Sorry if they're too big. :(

I took this picture while on my honeymoon. I was impressed at how well it turned out since the camera we have isn't all that great. Click on the image to see the full size version.

This is an old one. Taken in my garden at my home in France. The eye effect would be unfortuanate on any other photo, but it just looks great here :D.
