Very nice series, in particular I like a lot the one with the skulls.
Which lens did you use?
It looks very sharp, but considering focal lenght and aperture, you could have used the kit lens too...

Those are some really nice images!!!!! The colors and the physical depth of the images. Tuscon also has a wonderful Day of the Dead celebrations. The whole entire town get into it......

day of the dead
Interesting set of images, showing such a colourful cultural event that we just don't do here at all.

Maybe we should...

Yeah, I discovered that you need to be lucky to buy a good lens.
Anyway, I won't complain because I'm saving for better lenses too...
