phew... taken with D90 and Tokina 12-24mm...

sadly to say... I have more... they just didn't fit onto the table... especially the 400mm lens... that one had to sit this one out... =)

not expecting a high score here... just couldn't resist having fun with this one... (Greed obviously...)

[Apr. 30th, 2011 09:00:03 PM]

ok, well I'm quite surprised... It was as high as 7.6 at one point, but seems to have leveled off around 7.3 after a couple days... I honestly didn't think this pic wouldn't do quite so well... oh well, can't complain =)

and, yes... sadly to say, those are all mine... and yes... like I said above, I do have more lenses... it's a bit of an addiction of mine...

I also wanted to add that originally I only thought of this as "Greed", but I seem to also have hit on envy on many of the voters =)



Thanks for all the awesome comments! I have really enjoyed reading them all week =)

.




Wooooo Hooooo!!!

Thanks again for all the awesome Comments!!!!!!

WOW!


hahaha... yea... I have a problem =)

But... remember... a Lens a Day Keeps the Doctor Away! =P

And what is it that you do to be able to pay for all this? And where do I sign to join you? Haha!


hahaha...... no comment

It conveys it's subject extremely well, so well that I still don't like the photo! If I can ever take a photo that is half as powerful as this I will be happy.
Great job Shutter-For-Hire.


Thanks! I just checked out your waterfall pics... they are amazing! That's going to be my summer project... mastering the waterfall... look for me on the front page again =P

hmmm... favorite??? well, It's a really tough call... I really do like to shoot wide so I'd lean towards the Tokina 12-24 used for the shoot, but all the lenses serve their purpose... I use the 35mm f/2D for all portrait sessions, the macro lenses for.. well macro shots,... ect...

They do all get used on occasion... =)

Thanks!

I'm going to try and enter at least one pic every other week to stay in the game... I started a new job and it took me a while to get settled... now I have the time to focus on challenges again...

I hope to be in the running regularly again... probably not on the front page too often, but I'll do my best =)

yea, I purposely aimed them inwards to give kind of animate them with the same expression as my face... as thought they were looking over my shoulders... I had always wanted to incorporate the umbrellas into a picture and I wasn't sure if they would cause any lens flare, and apparently they don't =)

thanks!

It is well deserved, and even better: I can use it to justify my own greed.

04/28/2011 02:19:28 AM
What a great shot to represent greed! However, you get an extra point for the crystal clear image that must have been taken by a top range Canon with an L series lens creating envy for me as well :-)
