Two for CC please, trying out new lens

I got the 16-35mm and I was trying it out. I really like this lens!
My sister's baby turned one last week and all the balloons were deflated, almost. I was taking some pictures of her kid and mine. Please CC let me know what you think.

I have my speedlight on the whole time and bouncing it on the ceiling.

Settings for both pictures:
Exposure: 0.008 sec (1/125)
Aperture: f/3.5
Focal Length: 28 mm
Exposure: 0.00
ISO Speed: 400

I agree, always so crisp! Wish I had a new lens! Wink

1) the comp is great here. great catchlights
2) cute, but not sure about the angle.

cute!!! I'd love to see one with the balloons on a head ... sunken balloons are fun to do that with. Wink great use of the speedlite, and the lens seems sharp. Smile

Cute! Lens looks nice and sharp! The only thing I am not loving is the color of the carpet with the bright festive balloons. But obviously you aren't going to put down new carpet just for a pic right! Smile

This lens, I think has that fisheye effect (somewhat).

The tilt is a bit bothersome I tried to fix it so he is a bit more straight. This is one of those quick shot, since I caught him looking... lol

Thanks for the CC...

here is my quick fix using flickr since I don't have CS4 here at work.

I really love this lens! That is so cool....you look so far above them. Awesome! I prefer that 2nd image pre re-crop.
