Just received mine :) Going on trip next week, hoping to get some scenery shots. I've never had anything this wide before (I have Canon 15mm 2.8 FE (which I'm planning to sell)), but it's different.

So any beginner mistakes I should avoid doing? Good tips?

Btw., first impression on receiving was totally "holy sh** it's huge!".

Congrats! As a beginner myself the only tip I can give - don't always shoot @ 11mm, it's just too wide :)

How do you store gels? Are they easy to scratch?

I store the cut one in a little DIY sleeve made from a manilla file folder, and the remainder of the original square (from which I can cut more filters) in the origanal packaging.  The gel seems pretty tough, I haven't scratched my first cutout (not that I've tried or treated it roughly).

And now, back to our regularly scheduled program...

Just returned from a short trip to Pisa, Italy.  Here's a shot of the city's most famous landmark:

The worst picture ever is the one not taken: so shoot, shoot, shoot! Know your equipment first however to avoid as much as possible, bad photos. ;-)

Shooting with a Canon 40D & 7D, w/70-200mm f2.8L IS I, EF 24-85mm f4.0-5.6USM, Vivitar Series I 400mm f5.6 Olympus mount w/Fotodiox converter.
