    good set of photos, I like the first & last shots best. The composition of the last shot is spot on!

    Another one from the same hike. I believe this one is wide open, a little funky, cropped a little.

    Hey Brian,
    I really like the above shot and having the blurred walker really helps set the scene and tell a story.
    Cheers,

    My favorite lens for landscapes: sharp., not too wide, good contrast.

    I just picked one up off of ebay yesterday (for a song!) and have only taken some test shots with it so far. But what I've seen pleases me very much. I look forward to putting it through its paces, and possibly using it one of them new-fangled A cameras. :)

    Nice. I don't have a Canon 24, but I should drag out that Vivitar 24 and go play with it a bit.

    I nearly won the Vivitar some weeks back, but was outbid :(
    This little gem is really great though. I bought it after reading about it on forum, sadly not for a song :p

    Walking with dogs does not make for a fine photographic experience, but I managed to get these with the new (to me) 24mm Canon FD this morning. It seems to do a creditable job at close focus:

    and is none too shabby when you take a few steps back:

    I look forward to trying it out in better weather, and without a couple of dogs tugging at their leashes. :rolleyes:

    Very nice. What are you doing playing with a FD when you have the Zeiss?
