National Arboretum
Posted By: VaughnA, 10-16-2009, 06:17 PM

After considering selling my recently acquired 50 I decided to give it a try at the National Arboretum in Washington this week. I forced myself to use only the 50. The contrast & sharpness were spectacular. I need to work on my composition to match the abilities of this lens. I took about 30 shots of the Koy, this one had something resembling a composition.

Creativity for the Koi shots was taking a lot of shots since they were just writhing on each other for food and selecting and cropping the right picture. I liked the spiral pattern in this one the best.

Nice shots - good to see you sticking with one lens for the day - and seeing what you get.
