Beautiful work. I think that lens is under-promoted. You've made a superb image with it. #1472477

Very very nice! You are the master #10210364

Mighty good MICHELLE!

So nice to have your company at the Crèma on such a cold winter day.

Massive thanks for your inspiring feedback for this coffee flavoured candid.

You are right about that lens. Because of my limited array I have been forced yo learn how to use this lens for many different situations and rarely has it let me down. Café candids indoors and out, close-ups, portraits, landscapes and sports shots. As a "kit lens" it has the goods. While the IS is a good selling point I feel it is the overall quality of the beast that makes it a winner.

How do ARTHUR!

Good to see in the Crèma again mate.

Maximum Aussie thanks for your most encouraging VVN Award and your very flattering "Master" reference. No, not a Master by any means, just a dead keen amateur. 8-)

So nice to see you visit the Crèma. Take a seat and I'll get you a coffee.

Merci beaucoup for your stimulating and encouraging feedback for this "acrosss the room" candid.
