    well I shot it in RAW, so editing was a must. Only thing i did with the colors was ad some vibrance to it. The flower itself was really colorful in itself.

    So the shot was made offhand?

    Yes.

    Wow! some great shots. I'm glad I found this thread. Anyway, I do a lot of post processing/photomanipulation so I'm not sure if it will be frowned upon or not. This isn't the only way I take photos as a photographer but it's what I enjoy. Let me know what you guys think. [​IMG]

    Nice composition.

    I like it. I don't care too much for hidden symbolism (if any?), but it looks very good, nice details in the dark tones.

    Nice shot. I enjoy an artistic shot of making something that is recognizable seem more fantasy like.

    There is a lot of poor post-processing out there that looks too take. This is not that. It's very well done.

    That would be awesome Szeph.

    I hope it helps. It was done the quick and dirty way. If I find time I will create an split image that shows both lenses with the image split at the middle at f/2.8 so differences in color and image quality will be directly visible. But that might have to wait, I fly to Bangkok tomorrow (where I hopefully can take a lot of nice exposures).

    Thanks for all the compliments guys. I'll make sure to post more of my work in the future. I'm definitely digging this thread.

    !! Thanks for the much more than expected info [​IMG] I was confused at first why the Tamaron looked wider. I just thought maybe it was taken farther back. I guess I should be looking at a more telephoto lens in that case for portrait photos (although i did want the 17mm [​IMG] )

    Well I think that the difference would be less than one step closer which I think would barely matter. The positive side is that I read that the 17mm at the Tamron is wider than the 17mm at the Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM.
    I guess you could then also look into a generally longer lens like the 28-75mm. I love the 85mm f/1.8 - I guess I mentioned that multiple times - but it's not good indoors on a crop, I have to stand in the kitchen to take a pic of my gf in my tiny living room.

    Me too.

    I've been lugging that and the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 around but am flirting with a walking-around lens instead. I like the idea of the 24-70 f/2.8L but not the price tag

    Swivel screen is great:

    I would have tried to make a pic like this anyway, but it's much easier this way, since you can see what you do.
