I returned to an old favorite place this morning called South Swamp, almost 3 years to the day of my last visit and I'm happy with the results:

That's a great shot, looks  menacing.
Thanks, it's a really interesting and yes, menacing place.  Nothing too scary today other than some deer & biting flies, though :)

Love the shots guys thanks for sharing!

I've decided to hold off for Photokina in the unlikely event that the Sigma 14-24mm rumor is true, and the Sigma trumps the new Canon.

These shots are making it incredibly hard to maintain my patience  :o

Ugh.  I can't make up my mind.  Do I want f/2.8 or do I want IS with f/4?  Or do I want to wait and see if the 11-24 rumor ever pans out.

I have had this lens for a couple of weeks now, but not really had the chance to use it very much. But I spent a week in Provence/France and did get some use. Here are a number of examples. I post them with as much resolution as CR permits, so you can pixel peep a bit.

This first is from Basilique Sainte Marie Madeleine, in Saint Maximine, where they have what is believed (and agreed) to be the scull of Maria Magdalena.

1DX, 1/25s, f8.0, ISO4000 @16mm

Comment: The colors are totally off the original. I have experienced this in the past and there is a setting to correct it, but I don´t remember how. Anyone with better memory/qualifications?

The conversion from AdobeRGB to sRGB can get sideways sometimes.  Also, if you calibrated your monitor to an ICC v4 profile it usually ends poorly.  Probably the former though; if you have PS try the settings in the save for web dialog.

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

i really like the basilica photo. the colors are a lot different in the downloaded version compared to what appears on the web here?

the lines and perspective are nice and straight. it looks like you made a software correction? i don't know how much framing you lose by doing that but it looks great. maybe you will be using your tilt shift lens now?

Wow! Such great shots, everyone. This also plays well with infrared, which is why I dumped my 2.8 for it. EOS-M converted to 590 nm with 16-35 f/4.

I was in the same situation, but i use a polarizer a lot and that further reduces the amount of light available. I wished i had this lens in Cambodia some months ago, it would've made some difference.
If you use a polarizer on a 2.8, you might loose what, 1 stop at most? Bringing the 2.8 to a 4.0, and still without IS. At this focal range, bokeh is not the reason you will be going for the 2.8 since DOF is huge to begin with, and with the IS you can what, 2 to 4 stops at most ?
Just my .02c.

The original is in ProPhoto RGB, and generating thumbs from it gives unusual colours like that.  Toggling colour management on and off in Photomechanic gives the same results.  Firefox can display the original image correctly, but not the thumb; I take it the site generates sRGB thumbnails from uploaded images.

I just love this lens. Very nicely complements my 24-70/2.8L II. I liked the 17-40/4L I've used for four years, but this is definitely a much improved beast.

This is a recent photo of a lake Lipno in southern Bohemia, where I spent a weekend on a landscape workshop. Some fooling around with LEE Mahogany and Little Stopper filters :)

Thanks candc. Yes, the colors are very different on the web. The downloaded version is quite correct. And you are right, I did used a -15 vertical transform in LR and cropped a bit. Unfortunately the trip was not planned and I did not bring my TS-E lenses. They would have just right for this.

I´m sure you´re right Jim, but I use the same basic setup for all my images and most of my posts here comes through OK. But it may be that something changed with the latest CR update.
