That third one really appeals to me. Great colors and a nice relaxing feel to it.

Good set of shots, it looks like that lens is a keeper.

I really really really like #3.

You sure did wonders with that lens. Love them all but the mushrooms blew me away. The yellows are gorgeous in the first two shots.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Yea, I really like the lens, it compliments my 100 f4 macro, and I think I got a good deal on it.

I'm most impressed by what you did with the pokeweed: it's a much more difficult subject than a mushroom and you brought it home big time!
