I looked at your photos and although there are a few good ones, I would recommend to you to improve your photography rather than buying new gear. What you have is plentiful for making awesome photos.

I would be happy if you give me some advice, if you have, than a general improve my photography.

I am learning fast ....

Thanks

Still believe A7R is a much cheaper solution for your case that you can see DR and resolution improvements right away while still can use EF lenses as seen by Fred Miranda (and by myself).

Remember though, DR really is of little use as you pointed out...

"The only way to leverage 14-stop DR ... is by severe ETTL (expose on left) is by exposing on highlight and then pull deep dark shadows many stops back....But by doing so there are severe consequences...lost details and excessive noise/grain in original shadow areas and possible color tonality damaged. Serious photographers don't do this way.

With that in mind...there may be even cheaper options for the serious photographer and no real reason to go the A7R route and chase DR/MP's. A used 5DmkII might be just as effective.

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
