    Good points. I thought about the peppers being too far out in front of the focused area, too.

    I moved the key around to get this pic, and this was the best of the lot, really. I was looking to get a shine mark or two off the sauce rather than the chicken. I think had the chicken been more moist to begin with, it would have helped. I thought about hitting it with a bit of olive oil, but decided not to. Also, I think spreading the slices out just a little to give it more texture and depth might have been good.

    That's all food-stylist stuff, of course. But if I'm doing this by myself, I'll need to keep all that in mind.

    Thanks for the critique.

    In need of a cheap toy fix, I put a fair bid in on one of these:


    Reflex-Nikkor-C 500mm f/8

    I can hardly believe how inexpensive reflex lenses are! Sure, they're manual focus and fixed aperture, but in good daylight that shouldn't be an issue. This outta be a great "little" lens for daytime wildlife type stuff. Hope I win it.

    If I don't, I might just pick up a ProOptics 500MM F/6.3 Mirror Lens. You can get them new for around $150.

    I got a call today and might have a Rivers Cuomo pic used as a CD/DVD cover.

    It's a limited release but still, it would be rad to get a CD cover. It's one of my goals.

    It's not for sure yet but I'm crossing my fingers.

    I'm hitting the Ragga Muffin Festival in Long Beach. They had a pretty tough release that gives them the right to all of my photos taken for promotional uses. I don't mind but signing things is always kind of strange.

    I added a paragraph or two of my own saying that any commercial use of the pics would require further negotiations and that the web site use is fine with credit. (I do that with most anybody anyways)/ I'd just hate to have someone make a poster, t-shirt or cd cover without hearing from them first and being compensated. Ya heard?

    Anyway, now that all that is out of the way, I'm going to go OFF at the two day festival. I have pit access for the first 3 songs of each group, no flash at all. I'm taking the magic lens so it should be a weekend to remember. Just seeing a few songs of the Mad Professor will be worth the entire weekend. ALSO, I can take the bus there in about 10 min.

    Hmmm...

    I think if I fail to win the auction for that 500mm mirror lens, I might just plop down an extra $125 on a 600mm f/8 Sigma.

    Ah well...

    Nikon 500mm Reflex Nikkor C f/8 Mirror Lens w/ filters - eBay (item 120379241315 end time Feb-22-09 17:52:22 PST)

    Bidding went ape**** in the last 60 seconds. I was high bidder until that point at $78. It ended up $27.50 over what I was willing to pay.

    Guess I'll have to go order that sigma 600 mirror lens.

    After reading the thread and the HDR one, I was motivated to finally take the plunge and get a DSLR. I have had some pretty good results and some so-so ones. Overall, it has been nice to go back to a DSLR after selling my Olympus OM-1 a few years ago.

    I took this shot while walking around a construction site on the way to a park. I haven't really done much processing I was looking for any critiques or thoughts you guys had about it. Thanks for any comments.

    welcome! What did you end up buying..


    by the way... I have an OM-2.... mint condition. GREAT camera! My uncle has his OM-1... doesn't use it much anymore.

    (I also have an OM-G sitting around somewhere... needs to be fixed. The light meter doesn't work right)

    Ended up getting a Pentax K100d. Its pretty last gen, but for my purposes it seems to be doing OK. Plus, at a little under 300 for the body and kit lens, I can't complain.

    I still have a few lenses for the OM-1. It might be fun to pick up a body sometime and finish off some of the rolls I have in the fridge.
