That's probably true. Can't wait to take this baby with me to Paris..

Don't worry it won't disappoint in real world usage. Besides Paris is a wonderful place to get out and use this lens! :)

Loving the low light capabilities of this lens!

Great way of using the door frame as a frame in the shot.

Yeah, this is my first prime and just love the fact that I can keep the shutter speed reasonable in low light where I might have used a speedlight before.

Finally got a shot I think is worthy of being placed on this post. Let me know what you all think.

Really very nice composition. Maybe a little over exposed or perhaps undersaturated ? The water seems a bit washed out to my eyes and perhaps the greens need a bit more saturation as well And I would have used use a much smaller aperture than f/5 so the plants stand out a little better from the water background, if that was your intent. And finally I would have had the separation between water and plants a bit higher up in the image, not a lot though. That's what I would have done. It doesn't mean my approach would have been any better than yours, but you asked.

Love the feedback. I will go back and do a little more PP and see what I can come up with. I did actually choose the higher F on this to get the water in focus too. I was playing with different DOF that day. I was just seeing what sort of creative composition I could come up with.
Thank you again for the feedback. I am definitely still learning my PP process and will definitely apply some of the changes you suggest and see what I can improve upon.

Don't apply changes just because I would have done something differently. Play around and see what satisfies you, not me. For me, the plants and wild flowers would be the point of focus, thus the smaller f stop of say f/2.8. And since they would have been my point of focus I would have had a bit more plant and a bit less water with the water having being very slightly out of focus.

This is actually a 60% of so crop. It is a pond on a bike path behind my home. I cropped out the other side of the pond. I wont change it just because of what you said, but I want to try the changes and see what it looks like. Everyone has their own point of view and I have processed one image several different ways just to see what it looks like. So I will try your changes and see what it looks like. I appreciate the perspective either way.

These look a bit soft to me. Many of your earlier shots seem much sharper. I'm not surprised though. My experience is that the accuracy of the auto focus of this lens is variable. Sometimes its sharp as a tack and sometimes way off. Its one of the most major complaints about this lens.
