All of your work have focal lenth of 30!

Do you ever change your lens? :wink:

Joking aside, I hope I could take as nice photos with my new t2i some day! Would you recommend ML?

I guess that I should cut out the focal length on the EXIF summary I post but I cant be bothered to when I'm C n P'ing it from Picasa :lol:

Would I recommend Magic Lantern? Hell Yeah!!!!!!

I love the xtra functionality it adds. With learning about HDR this month the HDR functions in ML have been more than invaluable. The intervelometer is super handy for time lapse too. I also use the LCD remote shot quite a bit for preventing camera shake.

There is a new 'Xmas Special' version just out too adding additional FPS and HDR Video capabilities to the 550D too

Well this is my final DECEMBERFEST image. Its a christmas tree topper that was made for me and brought out this year. I have a feeling it could well be next years christmas card image! This was one of the very few images I envisaged in my mind and then went about creating in reality. Normally I'm very see and shoot. I had to go back and take the shot again as my addiction to f1.4 with this lens meant the tree was largely out of focus!

DECEMBERFEST has been a fantastic project for me, I've really enjoyed the whole process from the discipline of having to get a photo each day to the deciding which photos to post when I had more than one to choose from.

Thanks to dubailphil for suggesting it.

Must admit though it puts into perspective the mammoth task that a 365 project must be!!

That's a very nice way to finish off your decemberfest! It has been enjoyable to follow your and other decemberfesters' decemberfests!

And you're absolutely right about a project 365 being a mammoth task!

Well done Ian, I enjoyed your, Jiko`s and Janern`s photos, its hard work especially over the holiday season.

How did you find the Sigma 30 1.4, any chance of a mini review?
What are the positive and negatives of the lens, how did you find focusing accuracy?

Great work, I'm jealous. You also have me sold on the Sigma 30mm, now it's just trying to talk my wife into it :D
