Trying out my new 35-70mm f/2.8 lens:
Very happy with it!

Turo, what a beautifully sharp lens!
And so many great photos folks! I just went back the 5 pages I'd missed to catch up; some really inspirational stuff there!
I recently picked up the 17-55 f2.8 (cheers Kev! ) and I am so in love with it! It's perfect for what I like to do. Perfect range and oh so so sharp!
Anyhoot, I spent yesterday photographing a friend's exhibition opening for the big photography festival that is going on here at the moment (FotoFreo, Fremantle Western Australia. Look it up!).
Of course, when beers are involved, shenanigans will prevail... My favourite highlight:
Later in the night I tried some of that blurry street photojournalism stylin'..
I kinda dig it to be honest heh.
One thing's for sure though, I'm going to be shooting a lot more black and white.
The set is here if you're interested.

Thanks, no I use auto focus. This was af-c, will go back to af-s I usually get better results. I am a bit out of practice on my timing but season just starting.

Tried out my Sigma 30mm lens outdoors today. Although it was cloudy all day, with a bit of pp, heavy cropping and switch to black and white, this one came out okay. Any thoughts?

A lot of shadow clipping, but that's probably intended I'm guessing.

Where is here Erich? Not Lund at the base of Sweden by any chance?

I should have got out the nifty 50 (left in my car), my 18-200 was just not up to the job to isolate the subject from the background for any of my shots and when I got home I found everything I took was around 50mm. Frustrating.
