    Hi all, went down to the woods today and got a few shots of my friend. Any thoughts/comments appreciated.

    Thanks for looking.

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    First shows some promise, but it is only just hovering above the snap category. It is a nice family type close up.
    Second, the head is way too soft, legs look huge extended into the foreground and it is really not appealing to me. Just a matter of trying more and more.

    #1- nice portrait

    #2- pose looks very unnatural, but keep at it as practice will help achieve those better images

    #2 is horrible. I can't think your model will thank you for posting it... most unflattering.

    First one is a nice snap shot.

    Second one is better in that you've had an idea for a shot and given it a good go. As has already been said, the pose is quite unflattering and the focus is off. The shot also looks a bit flat but that could be the lappy screen I'm viewing on!

    An good first effort Andy... keep at it :)

    From a photography POV the first does nothing I am afraid. The second less. :(

    The second seems to have camera shake. Which is not a surprise as it is 1/30 on a 50mm lens. Must have been very weak light to end up at 1600ISO as well.

    I suspect it is handheld. If so you should invest in a light weight tripod. It will help in these situations. Also help avoid breaking the noise ceiling of 721ISO of the 20D.

    What I find puzzling is the first shot (no camera shake I can see) is shot at 1/100 800ISO.

    Did the light fade on you?
