    That would be my new Tamron SP 70-300mm f4-5.6 Di VC USD, I'm quite enjoying it, the VC makes it so much nicer to handhold than my old sigma 70-300 macro dg. Bought it after trying out the Nikon and Tamron in a shop, preferred the VC and Manual focus on the Tamron to the Nikon's sightly quicker Autofocus,

    High key shot taken over the weekend. I do have some better ones, but keeping this very family friendly (unless by request :) )

    Ola! Back after a while. Since it's warming up, here's a parting shot from winter:

    I finally got some new stuff up on my website (and hence on the server so I can post here).

    [​IMG]

    It was about 15 degrees that night and holding my hand on that iron ball on the railing was COLD!

    Nice little derelict I found while kayaking in Marysville

    [​IMG]

    I always wondered how that tower got bent, now I know

    [​IMG]

    This is the former Air Force fuel pier in Mukilteo. I'm not thrilled with this shot, but it was the best I had of the pipes. I'm planning to go back there with my kayak one of these days and maybe even slip in through the hole in the fence.

    Yes, I liked this one as well! That goat has such a great expression.

    Edit: Not often I find myself saying that.... :p

    This one I took last autumn at Martin Mere. I used a D300s with a Tamron 70-300mm f4-5.6 Di VC USD. Handheld @ f/9 ISO 800 1/1000, FL 260mm. Unfortunately the bird, the background...and the light kind of clash, but it couldn't be helped.

    I really like this one. :thumb:

    I've been having trouble doing anything worthwhile lately but here's one from me anyway.

    Before anyone asks, it's B&W because there were too many different-colored lights all over the place.

    bought myself a hilite, so far it is so much easier to get a white background in a small flat like mine, than the white sheet I used before. The Hilite can go right against a wall, can be lit with one flashgun, and I can stand the subject 1 foot in front of the background, with the white sheet the subject was normally about 6 foot in front of the background and then I'd run out of room for the camera.

    Not photo of the day but a couple of photos from the last couple of days :)

    [​IMG]

    Turku Castle. I'd never been there before, it was surprisingly impressive.

    [​IMG]

    Turku Cathedral. Likewise, also the first time I've been there. Also the first time in a decade I was in a church - the last time was Saint Isaac's Cathedral in St. Petersburg. Both pretty impressive.

    [​IMG]

    And lastly a shot from the deck. I went on the trip with my dad, who wanted to see the Baltic Sea after a proper winter (when it's largely frozen).

    Jipa, love the first one. It may need a little clockwise straightening but I love it.

    Thanks! It IS very cliche'd shot of the place, but so be it, I still like it myself as well. And straightening is a good point, I didn't really do anything to it before uploading.

    These don't show much in the way of photographic skill, but I still like the way the photos turned out:
