^^^ These points.

Underexposure

Look at the histogram below

There is a lot of empty space on the right. You should try to expose for the histogram to barely touch the right hand side.

You can also stretch it in Post Processing.

Although a longer lens will help in certain compositions, it would be a good idea to learn the tools you already have well.

Best regards,

Agreed. I was in kind of a rush because it was raining. Quite frankly the quality of the image and the composition wasn't all that important because I was simply using it as a guide to create a new company logo in Illustrator.

Still, it would have been nice to have taken a decent photo. :)

BTW, how do you protect your camera when it's raining?

Optech rain sleeves.

Several people recommended the 55-250mm. Is this what you're talking about?

Been awhile since I've been there but Massey's Camera Shop on Prince George Street used to be a decent shop, as shops go these days.

The best places are likely the shops in the New York City area. Places like Adorama, B&H, and 47th Street. If you buy used from Massey's, assuming he still carries some trade in stuff, always cut about 25% to 30% off the asking price.

Think of your camera's meter as an average - if you have something relatively bright (the sky) but your subject which is darker only takes up a small percentage of the frame, it is going to throw off the average in favor of the sky. In that case to get a proper exposure on your subject you need to overexpose the sky (it will look basically pure white). While the meter on the T3i is more advanced than that it is still not a bad thing to keep in mind.

I sold mine to a friend last week and regretted it a few days later and I have a 70-200 is ii! I think it will make a good beater lens or zoom without the weight or cost of the 70-200...which i wont bring on vacation that includes a flight.

So I traded an Ipod for one here, he was willing to sell it for $165...so the price here is good.

Why not take it? Dropping that kind of cash on one of the best lenses ever made and then not using it seems crazy to me. Can you insure your equipment?

I have an opportunity to purchase a 55-250 IS from a seller on CL for $150, which includes the original box, both caps, lens hood and polarizing filter. The seller says he only used it with the polarizing filter and has taken about 500 shots. He said he purchased it new in November 2009.

Do you think this is a pretty good deal? Has the 55-250 IS changed any from late 2009 to now or is it the same product Canon is selling now? How dependable are these lenses? In other words, would having a new one with warranty be important?

Thanks!
