St Lawrence Market yesterday. I had to stop cos he was staring at me.
I like the composition. This pic made smile. Fantastic shot.

I am still deciding about my macro/micro lens choices and it is between nikkor 105mm and tokina 100mm based on yours and others Flicker images. Seeking a bargain. I know I will need patience to find a deal on the nikkor 105mm.
I'm getting the nikon 70-200 vr ii. While i did love the 105vr. I need a more versatile lens. I've never used anything other than the 105vr, but i would recommend it. Very sharp lens. The vr is not very useful when doing macro's but works well when using the lens for anything else. It doubles as a portrait lens. I currently use a raynox-dcr 250 with my 35 1.8g for my macro shots. Not as great as the 105 vr, but its much cheaper, and image quality is top notch. Not sure, what price you are looking for. The lens goes for around $700-$800 on the used market. I sold mine for $700. I think i saw one for $675 on kijiji, but thats rare to come by.
This thread is simply amazing! Thanks to all for continuing to post.
Here's the last of my St. Lawrence vacation iPhone shots. I'm fooling around with some digital glitch iPhone processing lately, but it takes a while to get some control on effects.

I have been a photographer for a long time, I usually do a lot of weddings, family portraits etc. My Passion is photography and this is why I moved to a Mac from PC. Here are a few of my shots... C&C Welcome
Hey, 1move. Welcome to the forum! I think there's little to complain about technically regarding your work. I especially like your car shots and really like your San Francisco shots, particularly the night shot. There's certainly a slick commercial aspect to your work.
The only thing I'd watch out for - and this is just me, understand - is reliance on cheesy cliches when photographing people. The railroad tracks and the magic kiss shot don't work for me - it makes what could be very specific and special something quite generic. Mind you, maybe that's just what your clients might want you to do. I know there's a huge appetite for this kind of stuff out there.
Finally, please post more. Great to see new blood in here.
