Just purchased an as new 18-35mm 3.5/4.5D.

Bolted it on to my D700 and took it to the east coast of England to try it out.

Pics taken at f16 ISO200 soft 0.9 Neutral Grad.

First one is great!

Love that first shot, but then I'm a big fan of skies with texture. Second one, the ground lacks a bit of contrast so looks a bit flat. Probably due to that same sky texture.
I can't stop looking at that first one. :D

Very nice clouds and textures! However, I can see some distortion in the house and especially in the sailboat masts. I suggest correcting that in post and you'll make these great shots that much better!

I agree with Bob. Colors, contrast, and exposure are great. The tilted house and masts are distracting though. Perhaps just leveling the camera/tripod would've done it?

You'll notice that the house and the sailboat masts are leaning in different directions in the two shots.

First one the camera was tilted up.

Second one the camera was tilted down.

Good old 18mm distortion :biggrin:

Great shots, #1's my fave. I also use that lens on my D700 and like it a lot.
