Very nice result.
Beautiful rendition considering the harsh lighting conditions.
Well done.

Thanks Ash,

Yes, it was shot during mid-day hours so not ideal. That's actually why I shot it from the angle I did. Was a bit of a guess but it seemed to turn out ok. In PP I did brighten the underside a bit.

Thanks. I do like the color of the sky as well. Was mid-day but not too bright.

dcmsox2004,

Thanks for the comments. It's probably my most used lens. If there was an f/2.8 version of that (and I could afford it), it would rarely be off of my camera.

I've always like the color and bokeh from this lens

Pete
