Hi Jean Great Job On This One! What iso Did You Use? Very Clear And Defined With Great Dof Love The Defocus On The Cat Toy It Doesent Get Much Better!! #324665

Jean Papo January 09, 2004

Thanks, everybody! Wow, glad you like this one! Terry, I upper the ISO to 200 (as you suggested I go higher) and also used a different lens, my Tamrom 28-75, than the Canon 50mm that I have been using. (That Canon lens is back at the factory being repaired.) As for the defocus on the cat toy, haha, as it was whizzing back at me, it "defocused" itself! Thanks for your suggestions..I'm uploading the volley to Mia as well. :-) #324739
