Thank you!

He (she?) perched on a Japanese maple and it's rather beautiful all by itself, so that didn't hurt! :D

Shooting architecture with a 100-400mm? Terrific! That is a really nice shot. :D

Thanks! But, what's weird about using this lens for architecture?
Just wondering..
I am so overwhelmed with all the learning I have to do...

Absolutely nothing weird about it. In fact I think it's great. I practice architecture and work in a design firm, so I just take special delight in architectural photography. You can use any lens to photograph architecture, but lenses on the wider end are more typical. Your post illustrates just how flexible and generally useful the 100-400mm is. Have a look at the 400mm f/5.6L thread: 95% birds. Nothing wrong with that, and there wouldn't be anything weird about using it to shoot architecture either. It would just be breaking out of the normal use for that lens. Anyway, great post/addition to the thread, I really enjoy your shot. :)

tough to photograph an entire building with the 100-400. What's nice about using it instead of a wide angle lens is that you don't get the perspective distortion (converging parallels, keystoning, etc).

I really like the 100-400 for landscapes too.

And I really like all your recent landscapes with it Robert. The variety of different kinds of shots show how amazingly versatile the 100-400mm is!

^photo kid: Wow! That takes my breath away. It's got everything: action, gorgeous golden hour light, dynamic composition, great color, and very sharp. Just excellent.
