I love how this thread have continuous streams of great images and encouragements!







I have been spending time to get used to 50mm, and it's actually turning out as fun challenge. I'm learning to spend more time thinking about composition and exposure before pressing the shutter. As a result I'm taking less shots, but getting more useful pictures. I now use 18-135mm mostly as a weight when there's events to cover or shooting in rain.

Indeed!

Today I got up at 4:30h in the morning, but I think it was worth it:

@luisalves
Those look AWESOME! Especially the second one! I imagine it probably looked way more awesome in real.

@kcupp95

Great 10-17 work product there, Frédérick ... TFS, J ( I wish at it was not an APS-C only lens ... )

Thanks Frederic, though pretty simple: a tample light from the right through a diffusor and a golden reflector from the left

Great shots by you guys......all of you! This is truly a great thread if you want to view fantastic images!

Sinister, I hope you don't take this wrong...I love Scotch, it is my favorite, and I think your shot is wonderful...however, I do think I can do better. I want to challenge you and we will let the viewers decide.......
All you have to do is slip those bottles back into their nice packages and FedX them to me, where I will arrange my best lighting layout, take my time and relax by sipping a little here and there, and when I am all done post my shots here and return your empty bottles to you promptly. Sounds like a deal to me? PM me for my address and I will anxiously await their arrival!

Regards!

Sinister.....Otis told me you wouldn't fall for it, but that Scotch looked so damn good the way you shot it that it was worth a try!

Best Regards!....and if you are ever in Texas I will buy you a Lone Star beer......certainly not like a fine Scotch, but still unforgettable in its "own way"! Doubt I will ever get to Berlin, Mrs Rupert has been several times, but my feet are well planted here in the Lone Star State. My youngest son spent almost a dozen years in Germany, 8 years with NATO Command, loved every minute of it and came very close to retiring there...but was finally lured here by San Antonio.....another great city of the world!
