Learned something new everyday. =)
I might be the odd one out here, but somehow I dun agree to awarding $2500 to the defendants even though the couple's upset, when they only paid $1300. Maybe that's for "Show Effect". I don't know.
Also I dun think the pictures are that badly compose. It's not the very best, but it cannot be dismissed as standard shots.
As for sharpness, or noise, , the Rebel is probably better than all the digital cameras we used 10 years ago!
And though I have not used 70-300mm, I read it's not that bad to deem that it cannot take good shots.
Then only flaw I can find with the photographers is that, when asked what aperture the 70-300mm has, she replied that she don't know.
BAD BAD BAD. Everyone should know this at their finger tips when shooting for paid assignments.
Well but these are just my thoughts and how I feel.
