    Breathtaking simply breathtaking ! The only stuff I get to shoot out here in Craven county are old tobacco barns.....which ain't the worst thing in the world, if done in black and white.

    Beautiful photograph, Hunter!

    Just one question, though.

    How long did you have to wait for the geese to swim by?

    Exceptional photo. Makes me want to have a 1000 piece puzzle made from it.

    Thank you all for the kind words, I appreciate them.
    Slim, I saw the geese on the bank getting ready to get in the pond. I hung out and began taking a few photographs when they got in front on the mill and waited for them to get in the right spot for what I was going for. It was less than 20 minutes from when I saw what I wanted until I was able to capture it

    Spyros, that is excellent. I am confident you will love the 50mm f/1.4. The shallow DOF and bokeh on that lens is tough to beat not to mention it's low light capabilities. I would like to see some photos very soon.

    Thank you C1911 and ncviking for the complements. Tobacco barns can be interesting subjects, I would love to see some of yours.

    Thanks Hunter, I haven't put the lens through its paces yet. I have a couple of problems with it, one, Evi didn't really 'buy' it as a present for her, and two she refuses to act as a portrait model for it, because it's a little too sharp and therefore reveals small facial details she'd rather keep blurred..!

    Hopefully I'll have a Colt soon which should be a lot more cooperative...
