    Couldn't agree more! Loved my 50mm 1.8 prime so much I decided to upgrade to the 50mm 1.4 Best decision ever.

    Here are a couple I'm particuarly pleased with...

    The "I've taken a pic and I kinda like it" thread-photo-4.png
    Queens View in Scotland 2003

    The "I've taken a pic and I kinda like it" thread-photo-5.png
    This Picture, Pitlochary 2003, has some sentimental meaning. My nan always had a picture on her wall and I never new where it was taken (she lived in Essex). Anyway, we were buring her ashes in her home town of Pitlochary in Schotland. Walking down the high street and what do I see... that picture! I had to take my own version of it, unfortunately the red car moved at the wrong time

    The "I've taken a pic and I kinda like it" thread-photo-2.jpg
    From my 2008 trip to Egypt, this was the view of the pyramids from the roof of our hotel in Cairo.

    The "I've taken a pic and I kinda like it" thread-photo-1.jpg
    And, the Sphinxes (as the local children called it when they kept asking me if I wanted to see it).

    The "I've taken a pic and I kinda like it" thread-photo-3.jpg
    And across the Nile to our hotel in Aswan.

    Then the Tuesday went up the Heights of Abraham at Matlock Bath in the rain and the fog, though it brightened later:

    They're all from my 9 year old* Nikon D70s, most of them with the 18-70mm kit lens. 6MP and still going strong

    Don't get me started on all the photos of the kids taken with my nifty fifty 50mm prime lens. The best money I've ever spent, photography wise. If you have an SLR, you owe it to yourself to get a 35mm/50mm prime lens.

    Awesome

    Got a few here:

    Laid on the run way at RAF Odiham and caught this at last minute.
    Who you looking at?
    At Waddington Air Show last year, the heat killed one of my lenses so was lucky to get this.
    Lake Windermere, really amazed at how good some of these are considering the how the day started.
    Catching some rays.
    Few sets of random animal shots here and here. The latter shows a set taken in the same area where a young zoo keeper lost her a life not many months after.

    And finally this was one of my best nights out taking pics, its what I am used to, although sad so see a local land mark go I was there till the sun came up, this is my bread and butter and was where I caught the final shots although it was a few years ago of a good friend with his colleagues and family together who passed a way a few weeks ago. Although fire is bad in one way its good in another, it was one of the best jobs I have ever been to and to be behind the cordon well that just beats it. Although it looks a big job it was quite small.

    Hope you like some of the pictures, feel free to browse my others.
