My copy is great.  The 24-105L is not a "sexy" lens, but yet I find that some of my best work comes from it, mostly because it is competent and because of it's great focal length it tends to "around" when I am shooting.  Here's a few faves from it:

Patience is a virtue by Sparda (AMT), on Flickr

I like this shot more if that big boy isn't there...   ;D  I want to focus on the house but scrolling down, suddenly there's the big boy.  But very nice pic...  Hopefully you also have the version without the big boy.  I'd like to see that one too.

Long time reader, first time poster :)

I took this picture yesterday... I also played with LR for the first time and finally start shooting RAW. I am just not sure if I like the result. 50% of the time I look at it, I like it (because it makes the chopper look tough :)), the other 50% I am like "waaaaaaay overdone". Guess I have to find the balance somewhere :)

Lots to learn :)

Nice picture for me though I'd prefer a little bit less saturation and a little bit more warmth but it's just me.  :)

Personally, I don't think warmth fits images with snow and would err towards cool colurs, but I would tend to agree with the saturation. I would also be inclined to increase the exposure (which would have the side effect of less saturation), so that the snow looks whiter than it does at the moment. Some areas need to be slightly blue because they are in shadow and it helps the viewer to "feel" the cold, but it is underexposed at the moment.

I like it. I tend to oversaturate since I like bold colors, but when overdone it often doesn't look natural. I like the contrasting red and blue tones in your photo. Slower shutter speed (if possible) can blur the propeller blades for a different look.

As an amateur I recently started shooting RAW. Much more useful for PP. I have LR3 but need to learn how to use it. Show us some more of your work in the future.

This is a great website. Great advice and friendly people :)

Thanks for the comments! I definitely agree on the over-saturation and the under-exposure actually too when I look at it again... Nice learning curve :)

Here is another one, with the same lens... Open for any critisicm/suggestions! Image is almost straight out of the camera; just some cropping and a little added contrast... Less than 1 minute in total. The only total noob-mistake is that I totally forgot to disable the IS on the tripod :o

I know it's not a sexy and cool lens but I keep it on my 5D3 most of the time unless I need more reach or using a faster prime. This is from last Sunday looking out over the Mekong river in Phnom Penh. To the right is a landfill they are working on to enlarge the Diamond Island which is one of the city's expansion areas. The picture is processed in LR4, the tone is correct but a bit enhanced through split toning. It was a beautiful morning.
thanks
