This was shot with a Canon 50mm 1.4F. One of the things I've read is that people become great photographers (or learn so much) from shooting with a 50mm prime lens. I do it a lot with my daughter and people, but composing great shots of things OTHER than people is something I'm weaker at using this fixed lens. Thus I'm working hard to "see" things I don't usually...and this shot is of some monkey bars down at the playground my daughter loves.

    And a beautiful, intriguing result from an everyday thing. Wonderfully done. I just dropped my brand new Nikon D90, but thankfully all that is broken is the connector on my kit lens. As a result, for the moment, all I'm left with is my 50mm 1.8 lens, which is also new. Really have to take that out for a spin. This is quite inspiring. Thank you.
