Very nicely done!

I especially like the last two. You couldn't have done them with the 18-55.

Thank you kindly.
yes, all of those were done with the 50mm. the BW was an accident, as i was messing around with settings and didnt realize i left it on BW. but my wife and i liked it so its a keeper.
I tried to mess arround a but with TV and AV settings, but for the most part i learned that its best for now to leave it at P and figure out the rest from the info the camera offers, meaning look at good pictures and see what the settings were that the camera used. lots of trial and error

That's the best way to learn. You can learn from the mistakes of others, but your own mistakes will make a bigger impression.

all in all i love the camera and the lenses. I used the 18-55 in lots of outdoor shots, but i dont want to spam this thread. i did find myself in a few situations where a telephoto zoom would have come in handy so i think sooner rather than later i will get the 50-250mm lens. i think that should cover all of my needs nicely

Thank you ronin2307 for posting these shots - they look really good, especially the last two!

I got my 55-250 IS lens last week and played around a lot.. took a bunch of duck shots and so on - it's a very nice lens, especially for that price!!

ronin2307,

I agree with above posters. You did very well with these. Thanks for sharing. You've got some nice variety in the set too. Good Job!

thank you all for the comments.

here is a off-topic question: is it normal that i find the shots i take better looking in BW than color? I didnt know if that is some rookie sign or sign of somebody with a complete lack of any artistic fiber in my body, but it seems to be that all of my shots look better when i take the color away in post processing.

just curious. thx

Those photos are great, you can adjust the contrast a little if you like a more b&w feel.
