      Hi Jen, how's everything down under? Are you missing much about Indonesia yet?

  • stoutyHK

    Would be very interested to know how you took it. Also what (if any) processing you did.

    Awesome photo!

      As do I. :) But I just picked up the 135mm f/2 L last week and it's a very close call on which I will enjoy more. They compliment each other so well. Love using primes.

    I've been lurking around for quite a bit. Am very very impressed by your photography! I'm just a novice photographer with a Canon 350d and your photos are very inspiring. Look forward to more photos and tips!

      Hi Lynne, thanks for the warm comment. I started out with the Canon 300d, then 350d, 5D, (and 40d which I still use), and finally the 5D Mk II. The 350d served me very well for a while. Hope you'll continue to drop by.
