New lens shots

With everyone getting new bodies, I think that separate section for you to proudly display your first image from your new acquisition is in order.

This applies to brand new bodies, as well as bodies that are simply newly acquired by you.

New lens shots

Here are a few shots taken using the recently purchased Nikkor 17-55 f2.8, needless to say my new favourite toy.

Great shots Geoff

How much, if any, PP have you done here? The lens looks wickedly sharp and the contrast is brilliant. :D

This is the 24-70 equivalent isn't it? It is absolutely brilliant stuff! Maybe you won't need a 50mm 1.8 anymore... :wink:

Hi Simon

The first photo has had a boost in saturation and a vignette added.

The second has had a local adjustment brush applied to the front wall of the building just to increase exposure a touch as it was in shadow. (I used a CPL on this shot also).

The third has had no PP work.

All shot in RAW, converted to jpeg and resized for web.

I don't actually have one! Have always meant to, but never got around to it. I don't think I will bother now, although the bulkiness of the 17-55 is far greater than a nifty fifty.

Then you don't how it feels to get similar quality/toned images from a $100 lens... :P

Lovely tones in that first image btw.

I really love the first pic, especially the purple color, what a contrast to the wood underneath. i see a message in the pic (it's my thought only ;P): every modernized painting, architecture would have to face the day they depreciate and deteriorate.. same for the mankind! so.. do treasure ur time right now and live your life fruitfully :D :D

thanks for sharing :wink:

I like them all, but I prefer the first one.
It might be the texture conveyed in a two
dimentional image and the contrast of
the dominant colours. Well done! As I
leanrned the hardway in this forum a good
lens can work wonders in your photography.

That first shot is very nice and the treatment you have given it is just right.

First image is a cracker. Seems like you are enjoying the lens indeed.
