I really enjoy the last one - I like that look in architectural shots.

Man - how many lenses do you have? I not only can't afford 'em, I couldn't lift 'em.

Thanks Jer I have always liked that church. I have almost enough It's in my About me on my profile but 10 so far (and I gave my daughter the Tamron 18-250 and the Tamron 28-75 so I suspect as long as she lives here I can borrow at any time haha)

Me:

Pentax
SMC 50 1.7, DA 35 LTD Macro, DA 10-17, DA 12-24, DA 55-300, DA* 16-50, DA* 50-135

Sigma
50-500 (Bigma), 105 Macro

Tamron
70-200

I would say I use them all except the 50 don't seem to get slapped on to often. It was one of the first lens I bought cause everyone needs a fast 50 haha. 4 were bought used so that saves some $$$$. I don't have a bag that will carry them all - close I can usually get 7 or 8 of them with me.

I only covert a nice F4 300 Prime at this point , however I am likely to take a break from LBA for a while.... other summer toys to buy (Bike ,New Bat, Beer you know haha)

Nice shots. I'll bet the interior is as beautiful as well. If it has the real high ceilings, some
wide angle shots inside would be awesome too.

Thanks for the kind words Stiing Bull. Indeed it is in Beaumont (I live in Sherwood Park) I have a sister in law that lives there.

Thanks 9thumbs - I was tempted to go inside but the hour was getting late and I wanted to do some sunset shots - next time.

daacon-clear and sharp pictures the last one is my favourite- can you tell me the focal lenght of the second and the fourth? I try to keep my LBA down and I'm really happy with my new DA16-45 and the fast 50 1.4 I've just bought (do I really needed that?) but I think I need that 12-24 as well. Cheers András

Number 4 is my favorite shot.

That one is well centred and the serenity fills the air.

All those shots are good but the last one is terrific. What lovely light and what a great day.
