Look! No border!

I love the low key tones of the greens, blues, and indigos in this one which is why I entered it. It also is nicely contrasted by the yellow bokeh.

My guess is landscapes will fare much better than detail shots like this one, but let's see how this does in the detail subcategory. :)

Looks like I should buy this powerful lens.


If you're chasing vanity get that lens but if you want something just as good but half the price get the Tamron SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD IF. It's a sweet lens with great optics and the build isn't too shabby either.

ETA: Congrats Jason. 4th would have been better though. :P

Oh...I'm so glad I didn't tease you about yet another 4th place as that didn't last very long. Did I mention how awesome that purple is?!!! Well done, Jason!
