Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple

I thought that I would try this photo challenge thing, could not figure out how to become part of this until I subscribed to The Daily Post at WordPress.com It just so happened that I took a picture of a thistle when I was trying out my new Canon lens 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM supersonic and image stabilizer. Did not get a lens hood because I thought that I would use my Sigma hood but no such luck.

Oh I am going to be paying for this for a while but I see a difference already. Here’s a sample of clarity in the shade, hand-held.

  3. Nicely done…I need to budget for some big glass…wish I could use my old film/manual lenses but nobody makes an adaptor for Minolta to NIkon.

    • Hi David; I got my new lens for $200 cheaper than regular from BandH Photo in New York City. Took about 5 days to ship. Maybe there is something that fits your budget but if you want really big glass-whew! well that gets hugely expensive. I can empathize with your frustration re adaptations.Jane
