    Leu Gardens

    So today after lunch I took my wife to Leu Gardens so we could walk around and see the nice scenery.

    Here are some of the photos that I shot, using the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 Macro

    The water fountain could use some context ... of location. It's a little too much like a "product shot."

    You know, "Here, buy this."

    These are good exercise images and a nice test of the lens.

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    You were testing the lens so I don't think there's much to say except that the images appear to be sharp and well focused.
    But we can't really tell from those small images and the smaller apertures disguise any missed focus due to increased DOF.
    Composition is always key but I think Don's being a bit harsh over the fountain. Perhaps your wife taking a sip would have brought it to life.

    I'm not saying that we could make a qualitative judgement if they were a bit bigger.
    When you downsize an image for posting, it will look sharper; like the picture on a small TV.
    The full size image will tell you if the focus is good or slightly off.
