Oh my Av! That pic is just as pretty as the lens itself. Very nicely done!!

My turn finally. I had ordered a Canon 28-135mm for my birthday. The filter ring was badly damaged so I had to send it back. I have the absolute worst luck when it comes to modern lenses (new and refurb). Just got the replacement in yesterday. It also rains without fail every time I get a lens in, so I finally got to check it out today :).

This one is straight out of the camera. No editing other than resizing. The rest are edited.

I'm very happy with this lens. Sure it's not Canon "L" quality, but I'd say it's close enough. Certainly a keeper for sure.

Very Nice Crissy.... a good buy for sure, and just what you had been looking for :)

Definitely a keeper, love the Creek pic as well, nice composition.
The bokeh in the last pic is very nice indeed.

Excellent pics. Can i request that when you next buy a new lens you come to Maui. We have officially been placed on the drought list by the USDA.... Need some rain :)

Thanks. I had to take so many pictures to get this one that was focused well on the "Tokina" and was clear.

Also, I kind of copied your idea with the reflection underneath. :blush: Hope that's okay, lol.

Edit: Ohhh, neat. Thanks for the link.

LOL, yes of course its ok.... I didnt invent it :p

It does add a nice effect and you can change the color underneath the glass for whatever application.
A variant of the same idea is to add lighting under the glass

very nicely done, i noticed the sharpness of the tokina
Id like to see that same pic with you stepping down the aperture, longer exposure and use a tripod... :)

This one also had a lot of dust, but I was too lazy to get rid of it. It would also have been to a little too tricky I think, since most of the stuff is in focus.

I don't like this one quite as much because the background is not as nice and I didn't get the angle quite right.

Wow, I'm loving that lens photo Dev. Very well done!

I had a chance to get out yesterday and get a few more shots with the Canon 28-135. There's not much to take photos of this time of year. Please forgive the uninteresting subjects.
