A few beach images for your viewing pleasure. Except for the last image, I limited myself to available light this time ... which was decidedly pleasurable, given it was my first time out with the 24/1.4L!

Anyway, let me know what you think.

Great work Luke, but 3 and 7 are way too washed out for me - I can't even tell what #3 is.

A nice set of photos. My faves were 5, 6, 8 and 14.

Didn't like 3 and 7 because they are too washed out (3 especially).

I think number 2 would have looked better with the sun behind one of the peoples heads silhouetting them.

It's called flare, people! Hehehe. I appreciate the comments ... I know flare isn't for everybody. In #3 it's particularly strong ... I have less flared versions of that.

Very nice Luke! How do you find the 24L? Is it well worth the upgrade from the 28/1.8? After my wedding yesterday I realised how soft the 28/1.8 is compared to the 50/1.4...

Thanks Clarence.

The 24/1.4L is awesome. Soooooo sharp, even at f/1.4. I didn't use below f/2.0 here tho ... where it is razor sharp. Definitely a good upgrade from the 28/1.8. So it should be, at 3 times the price!

So would you recommend it?

Basically I'm toying with either using the 1.6x for longer, and getting a sharper equivalent of the 28/1.8 (i.e. what you have) or going FF and using the 50/1.4 which I'm very happy with sharpness.

I'm leaning more towards the 5D, but the 28mm becomes a very nice wide angle lens, very usable focal length... but options are still open... ;)

Good luck with it Luke, I guess the client decides which images they prefer so you can now got to town and get real arty with the new lens. personally I like No3

How was it not clear that I would recommend it? :p

24mm is a great walkaround length on crop but I look forward to throwing it on a full frame camera one day too. You can't lose by upgrading.

Thanks coalcliff. I'll be interested to see which shots the clients like best. Chances are they'll disagree between them!

Beautiful set, Luke. I like the flare. I would probably do just a wee bit of smoothing on her skin in some of the closeups, particularly images like #11. Not much though for sure. Just enough to even it out, not enough to make her look like a hooker.

Beautiful set - I dig the flare, you used it well without overusing it. It's hard for me to shoot wide angle without looking kind of snapshotty, and you did a great job at it- f2 is pretty sweet - I use the 35 at that a lot and I love it.

Cheers,
Phil
