Bought this manual <$300 lens in April for kicks. Went out to the coast and played with it for the first time. I haven't entered anything since April, so I'm just tossing this into the FS for fun. Couldn't think of a good title...

This is a beach on the northern Oregon coast. I haven't been to this particular beach in over twenty plus years. It's a nice place to unwind.

I'm glad someone (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) .

The curved earth effect here is great. You have turned it into a feature of the photograph, where normally that level of distorsion is seen as a negative.....well done there.

However, the centre of the image does not line up with the high point, so I presume you have cropped more out from the right than the left. This is creating a tilted feel.

Also, the sky being so blown out with the sun is an unfortunate element of the image
