Also, what's up with everyone referring to themselves as "HULK" within the past month or so?
That is exactly the combo I want to move to when I can afford it. Except that when I can afford that I'll be able to afford a 5D Mk I and I'll need even more expensive glass. Every time I read about the 17-85 half of it is praising it as the best cheap lens ever and half is complaining about magenta fringing when wide open. Have you had any difficulties concerning that?Link wrote:Canon EOS 450D with EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM and EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM. Yes, it cost me a small fortune (considering I'm entirely an amateur), but it's a damn brilliant set.

Many thanks. I agree, it's something I shouldn't need to know. When I first started using Picasa I really liked it, but google has featured it up to near uselessness. There was another pic I was going to share but it was too dark to see the object clearly (an osprey that was on my neighbor's old TV antenna and staring straight at me). So I edited it in picasa, got it to where I want it, but the photo on the web didn't change. Well, hell, go to edit it again and the edited version comes up in the editor. Nice. I can't find the edited version.adho wrote:These are really good shots!
Change the number after the s (i.e. 512, 720 etc.) to 0 in the address to get the original uploaded image. A trick you shouldn't have to use...
