Very nice shot.

I didn't know we could post "spicy" pics.

This is a beautiful image
Thanks!  It helped to have a photogenic model, beautiful landscape and a cool sky.  :)
Yes it always does, but someone has to capture it and you did it and you picked this one to post. I wish I had taken it, what makes it to me is the way she turns her head towards the camera. Well done, it's perfect.

Beautiful!

Here's one I took last fall with the 24-105L:

That is a 25 second exposure
Wow! What was your shutter speed on this beautiful image?

For something a little different, taken at 24mm, with 68mm extension tubes, focal point about 2 mm from subject and the curved "horizon" in the top right is the grass lawn edge.

Nice image, Kernuak!

Here's our latest picture, shot with the 5D mkii and 24-105 f4.

Taken from a small mountain in the English Lake District National Park called Haystacks, looking north west, late evening.

Did someone on CR once call this lens 'garbage" ?  ;D

Gorgeous image.  Love it.

No time for a tripod so I think the IS made this one possible. It's maybe not a pixel peeper's lens but it just does the job.

Both really like this image (the way the light has fallen on the ground, and also the rays bursting out of the cloud mirroring the shadow lines on the ground is just great), and also slightly dislike it. But I only dislike the composition rather than the content I think. The tree and shadow in the middle are just too central for my liking. But maybe that's just personal preference rather than anything else.

What settings were used? I'm sure if I'd have been there I would have botched the exposure one way or the other.

Good comment! The problem was where I could place myself to get the tree in the way of the sun without trespassing any further into the farmer's field and from where I was the surrounding areas to the sides were less interesting so not worth including. Wish I had another version less centred as well to see which would have been more effective. Might try a slightly different crop...

Settings ISO 200, f11, 100 second. Shot in manual after taking a few shots in aperture priority to get a sense of what worked. Also took lots of shots to try and get the exposure and ended up realising it was pretty impossible even with the 3 stop ND grad I was using. I ended up having to shoot using the histogram - keeping in enough tones in the shadows and highlights to know I could use the RAW file in Lightroom after.

Being a sucker for a 16:9 ratio I'd use that in Lightroom and crop part of the right and the top of the image off. Although looking at the image, it might leave the horizon in an awkward place. I'd have stood in the same place to take the photo, but probably rotated to the left a few degrees.

A shot I took last year in California. It was the middle of the night, and the house next to the one I was staying caught fire. We went outside, and I started taking pictures with my 24-105. I could have used a faster lens but I needed the versatility of the zoom. I just cranked the ISO to 6400 on my 5D2. I have shots with the whole house on fire but the one I most like is his one.

BTW, nobody was hurt, this was an old house in an expensive neighborhood. The owner did not have insurance but he sold the lot and probably got enough money to move to a more modest neighborhood.

Okay, it's official... I miss my 24-105mm and wish I didn't sell it now...  :(  Never thought I'd hear myself say that!   ::)

I sold mine today for $750.

Must admit, it is very nice lens ... worth every penny, it's only that the 24-70 II is just that good.
