The first thing I noticed is that the first seven shots are all with different lenses! And of the 15 photos the most popular is the DA 16-45mm.

In fact, I only use three of the lenses on display here with any regularity any more. This has something to do with the fact that older shots on Flickr have had longer to garner interest. I also did more to promote them once upon a time.

But I guess this illustrates that it's not about the gear but the photographer. Or something like that.

Really nice shots. I'm amazed at the things I see on here sometimes. Some of you people see and grab pictures I never would have even thought of...You have done some amazing work.

Excellent set!(very nice).
If I could nitpick(and I stress im being picky), I was going through your images and thinking that perhaps they would be more invoking with simply titles(one word etc).

Sorry its all I could think of in terms of criticism

Pete, those are my sentiments exactly! I see so many good photos on here that I wouldn't even have thought of taking. It just tells me that I need to 1. Improve my technical abilities and 2. Improve my imagination. and 3. Improve my vision.

Robin, these are all very impressive.
They each tell a story and are more than just technical brilliance.
Your PP work is also excellent.
Well done with this collection and thanks for sharing.

Wow, thanks for all the comments. My next project is to set up a way to start selling prints and cards. I have had a fair amount of encouragement to do that in the past two years, but I am still wondering about the demand.

I hope that those of you who are not already linked up with me in Flickr will do so. There are larger versions of the images there. Though I have a ridiculous number of photos, the set My Top Shots should contain all of these and more.

You have a really keen eye for composition my friend, especially in the Staircase and Blue Apartment photos.
