@ cayenne : you got it, I did not talk to people. I took so many pictures of people at that time and only keeping a few that it would have been a terrible waste of time to ask to every single person I took a picture of. Only the first shot uploaded made it to my Flickr page, the three other ones I had never shown.

As far as using the zoom, it was not really honnest as people don't see you taking the picture from that distance. It's more of an honest battle to go with a shorter lens. The old "street photography" thing...

Was trying out my 100mm macro lens for portraits when I first got it and captured this pic of my son sitting down playing. I loved the sharpness and shallow DOF.

These are from photos I took at a friend's wedding reception a few years ago from which I cropped out this brother and sister.

Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

My daughter...

When people see you arguing with an idiot on the internet, all they see is two idiots arguing.

No one said they had to be human, did they?

This was taken with a 60D and a 300mm f/4 IS wide open. She was probably 60 feet from me, or so. Focus point was at the dog's nose and you can see the narrow depth of field. Even with her very small snout her left eye is slightly out of focus.
