    jekostas yes I wondered about that too. It's a 58mm Tiffen circular polariser that I bought from B&H. It fits on all my lenses at the moment so it seemed like a good buy. The fact that it seems to be off set was a bit of a concern too. Makes me think something isn't quite right with some alignment somewhere. Maybe I should have gone for a stepup ring & got a larger diameter?

    I have recently become fond of this one. Looks better the bigger it gets too

    Yes that's a very interesting shot. In fact the more you look the more interest there is. I can see why you said you had recently become fond of it. It would make a good large poster. What did you take it with?

    It was with the 9-18mm, an incredibly useful lens, not least because of its size. I was almost standing on those fountains, but you can still see a long way into the air, and more importantly a large view to each side.

    I took this one a while ago. Dredging my files for landscape shots for my photography class, I came across it and thought it was interesting. All light is provided by the full moon. I am using a bush tripod, which is visible in the picture.

    Kind of makes me think of alien abductions.

    I got a 70-300 for my birthday while out in Phoenix. Spent a while hunting at the in-laws feeder from about 8 ft. Managed to catch this one mid approach.

    So far the lens is promising; especially at $300.

    It was pretty close to the right part of Nevada for that sort of thing to happen too!

    Most humming bird shots seem to show blur at the tip of the wing, I suppose they must be moving their wings really quickly. What shutter speed is that at? I agree that the 70-300mm is a great lens, especially for $300.

    1/3200 sec, F5.6, ISO 400. While I don't think so, it could also be that the wing tip was not quite in focus at that DOF.
