Welcome bro anto258. :thumbsup:

Okay (besides the pm, here are my inputs):
photo 1:
possible shadow from your lens hood on the boy's face. be careful bro. Either remove the hood or use an off-camera flash. focusing is out. Next time focus on the eyes for best impact. best to get his favorite toy and hold it near to the camera for eye contact.
photo 2:
wedding shot is my grey area, maybe our other photo-dudes can give better comments, but I like the lighting, only wish the pengantin's face can be brighten up a bit, macam ada bayang je atas muka.
photo 3:
I don't understand it. Get better eye contact.

All in all, very good effort. Did you use in-camera edit to get the black and white effect? :thumbsup:

That's so sweeeettt.... Yet I can't still see/imagine myself in "DAD"'s position.. Sigh..

Anyway need some advice, I'm looking towards another lens, 3 choices overall, but budget at the moment allows for one only. Here they are:-

1. 50mm 1.8 (the only one that budget permits at the moment)
I'm not really sure on getting this, I was made known it's good for potraits and similar, what other good does it do that my 17-85 can't (with enough lighting)?

2. Macro lens (this is a little high on the budget, assure you it's on top of my want list if $$ permits)
But having thoughts should I get a dedicated macro lens or a telephoto/macro lens?

3. Telephoto Zoom (looking at a second hand 55-250IS, cheapest around)
I always thought I will need a longer zoom, should I just get this (which I know will not be enough later) or just wait till I have a higher budget and get a... geez I don't even dare to say it.. "L" lens..

This is what I can advise,

1. 50mm F/1.8 is a prime lens. Therefore, its sharpness is much better than zoom lens. Bokeh is much better too.

2. A dedicated macro lens is able to achieve 1:1 magnification ratio when the subject is at a predetermined distance from the lens. In the case of my Nikkor Micro 105mm F/2.8 (a full frame lens), when a subject with dimension of 4x6mm is at 0.314m away from the lens, the projection of the subject to the camera's sensor will also have a dimension of 4x6mm. My D90 have a crop sensor of 1.5x and I believe your Cannon 50D has a crop sensor of 1.6x. So, the subject will appear to be 1.5x and 1.6x bigger in the picture respectively. So virtually, it is like a 1:1.5 and 1:1.6 magnification ratio respectively. Please bear in mind, the projection of the subject to the sensor is still 4x6mm weather if it is a full frame or a cropped sensor.

I never own a telephoto/macro lens. But this is what I know. A telephoto/macro will not be able to achieve 1:1 ratio right out of the box. It is more of a marketing gimmick. Plus, the picture quality will not be as good compared to a dedicated prime macro lens. You will need stuff like extension tubes and close up filter maybe achieve near to 1:1 ratio.

But in the end, you will need to think what type of photography interest you the most and what type of lens might be suitable for it. If you like portrait, then get a portrait lens (medium-long telephoto, medium/long telephoto macro lens). If you like macro photography, then short/medium/long telephoto macro lens will be the obvious choice. You might need external flashlight as well if your subject are insects.
