Kind of what I`ve been getting at Smile

The original 5d might have advantages over a 40D in good light, not going to be quite as useful in poor light, those advantages disappear.

Did you take this with one of those cameras? Love the way you've controlled the depth of field to separate the subject from the cluttered background

Its called layering, if i wanted a shallow depth i would have used it.

Never heard of the technique, is this layering too? I like being able to see the details of background stuff like cars and stuff Wink

Maybe I could learn from you, get a bad picture to look a whole lot worse by over cropping to hide distractions Smile Smile

Your newest is at least four years old, its a geriatric in digital camera years, time to upgrade Smile

Get both Smile

But I believe there`s an upgrade to the 7D on the way.

According to these rumours it will have GPS and wireless, but who really knows.
