    happy mothers day firstly and congrats on that great lens !!

    MF can be difficult i agree. if you want to AF one thing i found very handy is the AF lock switch which you can cycle the POF thru the 11 AF points in your viewfinder. its especially handy when using a tripod for macros where the thing you want to be sharp is not dead centre or closest to the lens. give it a go !

    Thanks for all the comments on my shot! Here is the original, resized from RAW. I used Paint Shop Pro's Resize tool, with Smart Sampling. I did not do any pp other than take out a couple dust spots.

    I'm glad to hear that many of you liked it -- I've been working on my composition. I intended for as much of the shot as possible to be in focus, so I used f/8. I think I focused on the top of the tree, that being the furthest object in the scene. I (obviously) did increase the exposure, saturation, and sharpening. Do you have any suggestions? Edits are very welcome! Thanks for your comments. fionndruinne, I had to look up Mo ghràidh, is it "I love" in Scottish?

    the composition is perfect tor. i love the shot.
    here is my humble attempt at brightening it up and adding some colour saturation a bit. just out of interest in that shot with colour mode I ?

    edit: resized for web this shows ALOT more colour stauration than what i thought i added. it's too much but you kinda get where i was going with it ! lol

    Thanks for the edit, Rooz. It shows more detail in the rocks and fence. Maybe I raised the exposure too far? I pulled it up a full 1.5 stops in Silkypix. And, funny thing, when I shot it, I had it on Aperture Priority, no exposure adjustment, matrix metering, but it seems so underexposed. Maybe the sky being so bright made it meter that way. I shot it in Color Mode II (Adobe RGB.) I'd heard that was best for photos that would later be post-processed. Do you think Mode I is better?

    imo for landscapes mode III is the best followed by Mode IIIa.

    I thought about doing something like that but hadn't messed with it yet. I like it better in the edit I think.

    Close... it's "my love"; Gaelic people have a habit of somewhat (to us) odd exclamations, and it's a habit I have a lot of fun with, as I kind-of know a little Scottish Gaelic.

    Obviously a positive sort of exclamation. If you see me write something like tha e grod, then I'm not as keen on whatever I'm talking about.
