tclune, I appreciate your concern. If anyone has anything to add please pm.
Cool! The lens seem to do itīs job for the things your shooting since you pics are always beautiful. It really shows that a great photographer can do great things with cheaper equipment.

Best regards/Daniel

I liked all your shots specially the full chapel shot. I have often wondered if I could be able to make a shot look that good.Keep up the good work!

Thanks a lot, Daniel and dterry927.

dterry927, I thought the same thing when I started. I learned everything I know about digital photography and post-processing here.

I started here about a year ago thinking I take great shots, but my first posts got a lot of critique. A lot of the time the critiques are on target, but sometimes I disagreed. Still, I went through the motions of correcting and re-post.

What I learned is that even if I think a critique may not really be appropriate for the type of shot or mood I'm making, it will be appropriate for others. And unless I try my own hand at it, I might not get a feel for the different effect.

So I guess I'm saying, if you keep posting and listening to critiques, you will improve guaranteed. The only downside is, you'll be doing so in full view of the public. But that, so they say, is life anyway.

I really like you newest addition to this thread but then I remembered I hadn't commented on the start of the thread. I find the first picture very powerful just by its shear peace and quiet. Top notch.

Thanks, all.

#6) This was the scene I was composing when the man walked in to pray. When he left I continued shooting.

I don't think it's a typo. Here's the full resolution:



I think they're looking for volunteers to help maintain the church.
