    Yes they were taken inside a church. And Thanks.

    As for the grain, I tried to reduce it as much as I could with the Kodak GEM Pro filter without loosing the existing detail.

    Re: 50mm f/1.8 Lens War Thread

    OK I know I piped up very early in this thread but I just want to say that this has been one of the best thread in a long time. Why?? Because the images have been incredible. You guys have posted some terrific photos. These 50mm lenses are great. Nice going guys.

    Why I don't have one I am having a lot of trouble figuring out.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Re: 50mm f/1.8 Lens War Thread

    So I'm getting kinda bored at our Chamber function tonight (Installation dinner & grand opening of our new office) waiting for the next change in agenda and decided to snap a few in between official shots. (btw, had the most horrid lighting under this big tent we set up for dinner...sigh)

    I looked around and saw this wine bottle sitting on a table (no, I do not drink...haven't for 20 years) and said, hey, photo op! Would be perfect for the 50mm thread. So here's another one.

    Marcus, great shots!!! And, I see you're a fellow Mac user. (Or am I deceived by your keyboard?) Macs rule!

    I finally got my Canon 50mm 1.8 lens. Haven't had much of a chance to take many pictures with it yet, but here's one I liked.

    Re: 50mm f/1.8 Lens War Thread

    Took this tonight. Had to PS the background a little. Didn't get it perfect but still learning PS and wouldn't of had to use PS at all if I would of thought to shut the cabinet door. Good lesson learned though to look past the subject to see what’s lurking there. Alison if you’re listening. I am really starting to like this lens.

    Took this at the mall along with a few others. It took some getting use to not being able to zoom.

    Re: 50mm f/1.8 Lens War Thread

    I got my Pentax M SMC 50mm 1.7 lens today from ebay.

    The lens is sharp



    The DOF is tight


    And the bokeh is creamy


    I'm pretty happy and it makes me work the camera controls!
