Took my point-and-shoot @ f2.8 ( 5D + 40 pancake).
If that's your daughter, congrats!
;D ;), yes she gets her looks from me.
Congratulations, even if it appears to the mother. ??? Means you have chosen a beautiful woman to be your wife. ;) In fact, when I meet an interesting woman I like to look at her mother. ::) It gives me a sense of how it will be beautiful in 20 years. ;D

Here's another 40 Pancake shot, this time a panoramic of North Landing, a cove just North of Flamborough Head, famous for it's chalk cliffs and nesting sea birds.

5DII + 40mm @ 1/200, f9, ISO 160. Hand held five frame pano.

It was a very misty morning, but the sun broke through for about one minute, then everything was covered in a blanket of fog again. No time for a tripod.
That's awesome, too bad weather was not perfect for the cliffs in the background ... still a very beautiful handheld landscape image.

Thanks Rienz ! Very kind of you. I was pleased with this one, especially as I wasn't going to be bothered with calling in - the weather looked too bad.

Great gear is good. Good technique is better.

I have started to explore a bit with street photography this summer. Like the shorty forty a lot for that and because of its size its no effort to carry your camera along. On some occasions it's slightly narrow for street, so will be looking at a 35mm soon (likely the f2 IS).


5D3 with shorty forty @f/2.8, ISO800, 1/5000, natural light, desaturated and vignette added in post. My wife was the model here :)

I really enjoy this little lens on my 6D, and I hope Canon produces some more pancake lenses in the same price range.

Very nice! I Like the framing and composition. Also the lighting. Well done
