I quite like the first one with the dinky little hotrod next to the bigger one... shame you cut off the rear end of it, though. You've also cut off bits of the other two vehicles - perhaps take more time composing the shot so that you can get all of the subject in?

How do you like the Tamron 17-50? I was considering purchasing the Tamron 28 -75...but now I've been leaning towards the 17-50.

I agree the compositions are definitely lacking. My reasons though were due to crowd issues. It was super crowded and I couldn't get the shots I wanted without having some gomer in the way. For the first one I couldn't get wide enough and I had to wait for people for a full 5 minutes just to get the shot that I got. I did some cropping to the third one as well due to googly eyed people on the left. maybe I should just keep them in. ;)

I think it's great. For $400 you are very hard pressed to find a better wide angle zoom and I love having a wider, constant aperature. If you want to see more check my Flickr. I usually tag my photos with which lens I'm using and I only have 2 lenses right now.

I'm sold, lol. Just want through your Flickr, and the Tamron looks insanely sharp.
