  1. Edited the fist bunch of pictures from our vacation at Lake Konstanz!

    These were taken in the butterfly house on Isle Mainau!
    (I was there with wife, so not much time to hang around, just a few snapshots :wink: )

    Beautiful! I especially liked the second photo, makes me think of an art deco art work.

  4. Michael,

    This is an excellent series - #2 is my favourite!

    Wow Michael, those are some great photos..
  11. Thanks a lot for all your comments!

    I use my 70-200 VR with the Canon 500D and the SB800 as fillflash (TTL -1EV).

    Thats a great walk around combo. Just beware small spaces and fearful people, it's a little intimidating :cool:  . And at the same time it can give you a great upper body workout :biggrin: :wink:

    most were shot in M with f11 and 1/100s to prevent subjekt movement (and my trembling hands :wink: ) VR does the rest. The TTL in the flash does great exposing the images, I really like that most!

    I find myself rarely using the Sigma when shooting handheld! don't get me wrong it's a great lens, but when not on a tripod I tend to lose focus because of movement (i might get old :frown: )
