Strange. I was mostly happy with mine, I'm just happier with primes.

I enjoy my 28-70 2.8 but in all reality I'd rather carry a range of primes than the 28-70. When I shot Nikon all but my 70-200 were primes.

Debating on selling/trading my 28-70 for a couple solid primes this winter. Needs to go in to Canon for cleaning first though.

my friend's sister asked me to take some pictures for her last night. i pretty much suck at portraits, but felt like being creative, so here's what i came up with. i had her mom toss some leaves up (practically right ontop of me) to see if i could get a cool effect. i'd say it worked ok but i am not completely happy with it. there's just not enough leaves. (keep in mind we tried this 7-8 times)

I would try shooting at eye level, and not so high above her.

I dig what you went for, personally. I think the high perspective works with the leaves.

Actually now that I think of it, I take back what I said. Dan is right, haha
Normally though, portraits taken from high up make people look like their head is bigger than it is

I think with women you generally want to shoot them at eye level/higher up, don't you? Makes them look more feminine.

I thought you shoot down on women and up to make men more masculine.

here's trial #2. i definitely like this one a lot more. even if there's a couple leaves infront of her face.

Not digging them myself. Just don't like objects in the way of my main focus point. But to each their own.

Can't say I'm a fan of that shot, Zach. The first attempt was much better, IMO.

you could always just redo the shot.. it's relatively simple to do. it is a really cool idea too.

Or just clone un the face from the other shot onto that one.

Or or clone the leaves from that one onto the other shot.

Too easy

Edit-

And on the 24-70, I think the only thing I only love about it is the range. Though I've only used Carls 28-70. But the range for me is perfect. But for that kind of money, I can personally justify a 17-40 f4 and 70-200 f4 on top of my 50 1.4.

After looking into the Tamron 28-75 reviews and such on youtube, and then noticing how fricken cheap it is, I believe this is going to be my next lens purchase.

Liking it so far. The hockey pic I posted from behind the net was taken with it at like 3.2 or 3.5, can't remember off the top of my head.
