The Decemberfest will mark the end of my Project 365, which means I'll have to take at least one OK shot everyday. If it's too crappy I won't post it though :P
I originally decided to use the 50D and the 17-55/2.8, but I might just change it to the 600D + 85/1.8. We'll see!

After seeing warth man's two shots I almost feel a little embarrassed opening my decemberfest with this snapshot of Santa himself :? It's taken in my office building on my way home from work today, and as the weather was pretty crappy and I was pretty worn out I didn't bother trying to get something better today..

600D + 85/1.8 @ 1.8, 1/125, ISO 800

Yep, I will be using the 600D + 85/1.8 for the decemberfest

Thanks for the compliment janern but your pic may be technically better. I still haven't solved my problem with the shutter's refusal. Finger or brain trouble no doubt.

More pleased with today's shot

Image

f/2.2, 30", ISO 400

Looking forward to the weekend, which is the only time I'm off work in daylight (and it's starting to seriously bother me. Night photography is okay, but not every day!)

Edit: Learned today that the 85/1.8 will make nice 8-point stars already at f/2.2 (maybe even at f/2 - I haven't tested that), and that's good knowledge :)

Today's decemberfest photo was a toss-up between this and a sunrise shot, and in the end I went for this.It seems for the firefighters Saturday is pump testing day!

I was out in stormy weather today looking at how the mallards coped with it. It's the first time I've seen mallards fly sideways and their bow waves breaking over them!
The experience also underlined the major difference between the autofocus systems of the 600D and the 50D. I can guarantee you the keeper rate would've been much higher with the 50D. And yes, I only used the center point, the only cross-type point, on the 600D. It wasn't even hit or miss, it was more like 1 hit per 5 misses. Out of 250 shots only 40 were keepers. I did expect the 600D to be worse, but it is still annoying! The slower continuous burst and small buffer were not as big of a problem

In the end I didn't choose an action shot, as I was really pleased with this:

f/1.8, 1/500, ISO 400

Thanks:) I have cropped it quite a bit (from 18 MP to around 10), but I guess I was around 2-3 meters away

Yesterday's shot of rain/sleet/snow on my kitchen window, taken just after midnight. Didn't get around to posting it until now because I worked the whole day yesterday and went straight from the car to the bed when I got home! What a relief it was that I had already taken the day's photo!

f/2.5, 1.3", ISO 100

Love the one from 7 December Janern.
