Thanks Infinite, that's what my old man was telling me..the f/stop number.
I'll try next time adjusting the F/stop... still debating on which is the best mode to shoot. I usually have it on P..not sure on other cams, I'd imagine is the same, but on this one it chooses A & SP for you. Down side is they can't be adjusted individually so I guess I'd have to shoot on M to do what you suggest.

try focusing more toward the middle of the plants in the picture so the really close and really far are not so out of focus. As it is in that pic you are focused on the really close plants only, so the out of focus plants really can be seen as such.

^^^ not sure if its just me but he is not in full focus, may have moved a little bit, however, what he is focused on is more the middle of the picture... myabe my eyes are going nuts? it is a hard color to tell though.

Would have been a beeter shot if she was closer? she's a make up artist right? other than that, the pic looks great, i must say! great colors and guud lighting.

a reflector and/or a fill flash would have worked wonders in that picture.

Diskreet, I tried that too, but even after focusing on diferent spots I could never get the whole pic focused which is what I was trying to attain, but I didn't have my tripod either so..could have been that too.

I was browsing eBay, dreaming about the camera I'll buy when I get my job and found some interesting things. Since I know you guys here know more than I do, which of these packages is better: Package 1 or package 2? Should I buy the camera as the kit or the body only? (Considering I buy a package like the previous ones posted, which includes two lenses). As for color, I really don't care. It's the same crap inside.

I'm not in a hurry, I just want to know what you guys think. I want to make myself clear before I eventually buy, therefore making the shopping process easier.

Also, another question. In technicaly terms, the 20D is better than the 350D/Digital Rebel XT. Is it really worth the difference?

Thanks!

Thanks!
if i had to choose between the two you posted, i would go for the one with the Lexar 80x 4GB CF card. the lenses in either kit are sub-par (kit lens is alright, but you really have to stop down the lens [bigger numerical f-stop] in order to get some decent sharpness; the canon 75-300 isn't phenominal either, but it's a good consumer zoom up to 200mm; the tamron kit is cheap).

and i would say that the 20d is worth the extra money, but don't jump into this money pit without knowing at least a little bit about what you're getting yourself into.

ruffryde009: yes i was talking about that picture. i said that because there are some dark areas on the subject that could've been better featured if the photographer were to use a flash or reflector to reflect the sun towards the subject. when is it better to use a flash? every time you shoot.

i love these pictures. Does anyone have an idea on how to get ambient color in different colors? for example.
