I recently spent a week in Switzerland for the Basel World fair (large trade show for watch and jewelry brands) and the only lens I took with me was the Canon 100mm f/2.8. I didn't have a tripod, so I had to rely on my surroundings and a steady hand. Most of the shots I took did not come out, as I have a lot to learn about shooting on the fly in less than optimal lighting.

Here are a few shots I did manage, this is a new lens to me so I am looking for any suggestions in making the most of it. Any crit is welcome

Some PP done on the images. I still feel as though I left a lot on the table with this lens, I fear I am the only thing holding back.

Nice photos, very sharp.
I quite like the 4th and 5th captures. They're very interesting to look at.

Many thanks for the comments, it's easy to get great shots when dealing with such attractive subject matter.

Aperture ranges from f/2.8 to f/4.0
