THat's a beaut, Ricardo. Try cropping the top and bottom so you just have the water and the island and boat? That's what my eye is suggesting, and I'd be curious to see how the pic changed.

Thanks for the comment Mulchie...I'll give it a try. You could be right from a purely pictorial point of view, though it's also about context....

The Boulder Bank at the top of the original pic is a particular feature of Nelson Haven...it's what created the Haven eons ago in fact, so I had included it as part of the "landscape". But as a picture I believe you're right...here it is with the top and bottom cropped....

So i have been debating whether to buy this lens or not. Been looking at alot of the photos on here and they ar epretty convincing so I finially clicked the mouse and ordered it. Don't think im going to be dissapointed (other than my wallet may hurt a little, but thats not too bad). Should get here this week and then ill get out and try this out. Hope my T2i likes its first L lens and it does justice for it :P. I think I should be more excited!

I do have one question. Might sound stupid but im going to ask anyways. Should i buy the actual canon tripod lens mount ring or go for aftermarket one thats cheaper? I don't know the quality of either but i sure as heck don't want to get something thats going to break.

Willy, there is no doubt that the 550D works best with good lenses. You will not be let down!

I'm still pushing this lens as hard as I can in low light. This time round, I shot on M with 1/750, f5.6 and ISO1600. Hand held with the sun just disappearing behind the trees. Note, ISO was on Auto (something I had never tried before), and it worked good enough. No doubt full framers will handle this kind of situation with out breaking a sweat, but until then...

You should be mre than pleased with the lens.

Regarding your last question...I would buy the Canon mounting ring. I bought a substitute and it binds on the lens barrel and won't turn freely unless I almost remove it. The Canon one on my 300 f4 is as smooth as silk.
Cheers, Richard

This lens has become my favorite studio lens. It is lightweight, has a great focal length range, and is amazingly tack sharp (the f2.8 version doesn't have any advantage in studio other than weight training)

one from today, more on flickr.
