Here are a few new photos with my 85mm, 1.8. I hope my edits are ok. I realize there is some magenta in these, but I felt as if it looked DULL without it b/c it is winter time, and it's not gorgeous out here.... Give me your CC please!
1. f/3.5, ISO-2500, 1/100
2. f/8.0, but can't remember the rest. Probably ISO- 2500, and 1/100
3. f/4.5, ISO-2500, 1/200
4. f/3.2, ISO-500, 1/250
5. f/3.2, ISO-500, 1/200
6. f/3.2, ISO-500, 1/200
This one is of my sister and her new hubby. Think they are happy?!?!
I'm not going to offer CC since I don't really know what I'm doing, But I really like the composition and feeling of #3. The background is just gorgeous, too!

I love the yellow tones of them. They also have a dreamy feel.
My only question is, What was with the grumpy guy? He has kind of separated himself in the first group shot and he has a grumpy look on his face. and that same look in the second shot too!
Love the girl with the monkey - is there some special meaning with that?

Cazz- I mean to post about that. This is my cousins and uncle and aunt. I think he's just more serious. I got a TEENY TINY smile from him, but it's not my favorite pic. He's just not a fan of photos.
As for the monkey, she got it last Christmas and made it herself, and she just is goofy and likes to carry it around. She's not really attached, just silly!
Good try Sadie! My favourite is #4. The first one looks a little noisy but I know how hard it is to come by decent light in the winter. The 1st family pic looks a bit too bright but i love the posing on the 3rd (and did lol at the grumpy face!).
Great job, Sadie! Way to go with the new lens! They're great shots -- you did a great job with the poses and the light!
They definitely seem a bit too magneta to me, and a couple seem a bit bright. I was laughing about grumpy face too. Goodness! (Reminds me of my brother when he was a teenager. Well, actually, it's still hard to get him to smile for a picture even at 43; he just doesn't look actively grumpy anymore.)

Hey Sadie, Good for you for getting out there. You are right that they seem pretty washed out and dull... Remind me what you are using to edit? If you send me 2-3 full size images at photos by ejrussell at gmail .com (minus all the spaces) I will give them a play!

Great job, Sadie. Love the posing in #3 and the girl in # 4 is sweet!
I agree with Kerry about the noise in #1. But, it may just be over sharpened.

I seriously feel like an idiot after posting these. I didn't edit the correct one of the first one. I ran it thru noiseware, but didn't edit it. So, scratch that one. As for #2 & #3, I have re-edited those. I swear that night they did NOT look that bright. I feel so dumb right now...
Beth- I am using Elements. I will do my best to send them tonight if I remember. Thanks!
