  2. Very nice. Sharp images. Looks like you have a winner there. Enjoy it!
     
  3. Takeda,
    Crop of the bench seat on the RHS and about 1/2 to 2/3 of grass in front and you will heve a to-die-for photograph!

    Very well done.

    Thanks Larry!! I ordered it from Adorama last Sunday. I checked this morning, and it was out of stock at Adorama.
     
  7. Nice set of images. You've got a good eye and the 70-200 serves it well.
     
  8. Congrats on the new glass! The 70-200 was my first lens purchase, even before I bought a body, and quickly became my fav. Now more than 3 years down the road it is still my fav by far and I have some pretty nice glass. I am still excited every time I open a new folder of images containing some from the big VR because I just *know* there will be some stunners in the bunch. You have just started a fun experience.

  9. Takeda,
    This what I had in mind, using the rule of 1/3's - reflection line is approximately 1/3 up from the bottom and bridge arch approximately centered on the 1/3 line from the right hand side. You could also add a little red saturaton to bring up the tree on the RHS, bring up the bridge rocks a tad as well. Now you have a series of semi-parallel lines in bottom 1/2 of image, a bunch of randomly oriented leaves in top half (man vs nature thingy) and a mystery for the viewer - where does the bridge to TO?
