Very nice but it looks like you missed the focus on #'s 3 & 4

Yah, I know... :( Both of my hands are currently in braces.. lol! So I braced it as tight as I could and these were my "best" with shaky wrists/arms. lol! Can't win 'em all! ;)

Sorry to hear about the braces. What was the speeds here? They seem bright enough that the speed should have been fast enough to counter any shaking.

I wasn't using a fast lens... Manual setting, 1/1.3, ISO 200, f/4.5.

Wow, you handheld 1.3, that is very hard to do.

Thanks! :) I'll keep playing till my tree is down though... haha! Also, my daughter was holding that little 'worry doll' on my shaky knee, and the doll is about 2" tall at best... lol!

Very cute pics, especially that little snowman, and yes, really likin' that colourful bokeh background.

Fun play!!
yup fab colourful bkgd! I like shot 3 here for it's 'rule of thirds' positioning but it is soft.

HIGHLY recommend a tripod for any speeds slower than 1/60.

Normally I recommend higher end tripods but any 30-50 dollar tripod is better than hand-holding at 1/1.3
