Elizabeth Street, Sydney, Saturday night

I like the 18-55mm kit lens, but I thought I'd give it a go using just the 22mm prime for a bit. The zoom lens I have found to be quite nice; the biggest difference with the 22mm being that it is significantly slower to focus. If you want a quick snap of a moving object, I think you'll be in trouble. But with a bit of imagination and a knowledge of photography, I think it represents a nice challenge to really test your skill.

I took the photo above, hand-held, and I think it came out quite nicely, but I'm more than happy to hear comments from you guys.

I think you Photoshopped that picture because:

* The buses are so slow on Saturday night that this must me a time-lapse exposure.

* There's no crazy speed addicts in the frame trying to attack you.

* Where's the drunk guy that lays under the tree every Saturday night?

That said, it's pretty.  I'd personally have liked to have caught more of the bus without the blur but then again, that might have been what you were looking for with effect.  The ground is sharp for handheld so it's certainly good enough for night shots.  Nice!
