Thanks, that was my first play with the 100-300mm. I noticed in pp I was focused on the front fence rail rather than the rose, meaning depth of field at wide open was about 100mm in this pic.

What I thought when I saw it was something rather pretty on its own in a field of almost stark industrialism and sterility. I was also intrigued in pp at how much definition and grain was showing on both the in focus and soft focus timber.

...stark industrialism and sterility climbing up a rather daunting fence to see what is on the other side. An adventure.

something like that ………
No it was a lack of leading of lines to subject of interest, and or lack of interesting subject. While I may have for ground mid ground and back ground, there was nothing to join them
all together

Also did analysis across all images on most popular lens and focal length, got a a big surprise there …… top lens was 70-200 followed by 17-40 and not far behind 24-105 seems I underestimated that lens.

Still undecided about the 100-400mk2 as 50% focal length is covered by my 70-200 …….. speaking of which have you seen the price of the new MK3 version :rolleyes:

When you are concentrating on looking for what is wrong you will always find it.

Look for what is right, you will also always find it it. Magnify it.

Does not only apply to photographs but anything in life you like to name.

Concentrate on finding good.

Then why did you take them? There must have been some interest in your mind to press the shutter on them.

Also did analysis across all images on most popular lens and focal length, got a a big surprise there …… top lens was 70-200 followed by 17-40 and not far behind 24-105 seems I underestimated that lens.

There is a yeah but here, all your images or all images? The 17-40 is a mighty lens but outshone a bit by the newer 16-35 which has tremendous reputation but lesser following. Not discussing the reasons why but time is one.

The older (than current version) 24-105 and the 18-55 (kit non IS) are both much maligned lenses but IQ was in fact rather good when used knowingly.

There would have been but it goes back to what I see as my next growth as photographer …….. composing the image rather than a snap

Photoshop Im busy starting to get into luminosity masking and exposure blending rather than filters.
I want to redo my 500px website

Ive made a shopping list and the 16-35 F4 is on it as an upgrade to 17-40 as its newer and has "IS"

The newer 24-105 is $1800 but can get old 1 for $700 again they didn't change much so it it worth a $1000 more …..no
My 70-200 is the non "IS" model so at some point the MK2 version rather than the MK3 version be better
as for the 100-400mk2 well seems the smarted choice over siggy 150-600

New HP laptop was a smart buy …….. lests colours are a lot better when I post images :)

Good luck with that. I hope you don't miss one when putting it back together.

And because I have a crappy memory, why ?
