Ben, I like them all. Love walking around the woods.

Were you standing in the water taking the pictures?

thanks. the last one is in the water about mid thigh deep thanks to my new waders. The other two were from rocks on the edge.

hi,

I am interested in purchasing a Wide angle lens for concert photography and other live events. Do you think this lens would be more practical or a Canon 16-35L on a Canon 7D?

Speaking from experience, the 17-40 is not fast enough for concerts unless you're using flash. If you're trying to user natural light, it's not going to be consistently capable. I usually find myself using my 50 1.4 @ F2 - F2.8 and ISO-1600 for concerts. Then again, it depends on the concert and the available light.

none of the above? If you want a wide angle lens for you 7D get either the canon 10-22 (sharpest and least flare), sigma 10-20 (cheapest) or tokina 11-16 (flare flare flare but 2.8). If you want something for low light, look at a prime, the widest I know of (that's fast) is sigma's 20mm 1.8.

But the 17-40 and 16-35mm are full frame UWA lenses. There are a lot of compromises because of that. If this is still the range you want (it's not really wide on a 7D) get the 17-55 IS or one of the third party version. 2.8 and IS will help a lot.

Interesting thought process on several counts. Firstly,to deduce that a fish obviously moving water through it's gill plates is "dead". Secondly,to fabricate the notion that it had been "shot".

As someone who treks solo more often than not,I find that something of known dimensions helps to extrapolate relative sizing in correlation to any given scene. Were I to cite the fact that said rifle is 42" long in overall length,then play the fish sideways in approximation of same...most would be dealt an inkling. Though admittedly,I greatly enjoy the Doom & Gloomer's oblivious outlook and their haste to put a spin on things polar opposite from reality.

Though on the brightside of the equation,the 17-40 is equally adept at capturing Dead Fish,should the mood strike.

Holy crap this is why I love forums. That was literally the funniest thing I heard all day and I just finished two episodes of californication.

I like this Shot!

Thank you! :)

Wow, what a shot! Looks like something out of a fantasy story, or a fairytale, like someone posted above. Stunning colors.
