More 50mm love

We went to Longhorn Cavern State Park this last weekend. It was surprisingly fun and I was once again very glad to have my 50mm f/1.8. Now would I love the 1.4 to get a stop or two faster, sure. Or the 1.2 L (insert dreamy sigh here). But I've got the 1.8. And really, after shooting the caves, I think a wider fast prime just moved up on my priority list rather than gettign a faster 50.

A lot of people complain that the 50 is too long on an APS-C camera, but I never really found that. Until this weekend. So maybe a nice 28mm is on my list now. The Canon f/2.8 isn't too pricey and at that focal length will be pretty fast. Or the 28mm f/1.8.. it costs a little more but 28mm at f/1.8 on the 50D will likely shoot in the dark. I can already get really low light shots at ISO 6400 as it is but the possibilities that the shorter lens has....

Anyway, I'm rambling here. I got a few cave shots. Not sure what direction I want to take with them editing wise... but here's where I've gone so far.
