Ha! I was looking for a nice landscape to post, honestly, Paul... Or maybe some swans.

I do hope people take the trouble to view it LARGE: that cheapo lens is really something!
Best wishes,

Andrew

Another nice shot

One day Andrew you may accidentally shoot something that is new and rust free (don't worry I have not forgotten the coke can)

However, don't stop the good work on the old stuff it brings many smiles

This lens would not happen to be your manual focus zoom jobby would it?

As a personal preference I prefer your landscapes Andrew but the colours and detail make this a wonderful image for me

Invasion of man's work by Nature and inevitable destruction, that's what I think when see this. This is another kind of "life force", Andrew; perhaps stronger than ours. Well done!

I do try, Stuey, honestly I do![quote:3496ace15f="Stuey wrote:

Yes I bought it ealier in the year off evil-bay. I already had a Tokina 70-210 manual focus but this one seemed in such good condition and was below 5.00! It's incredibly easy to focus and produces nice sharp images.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Keep on taking rust and textures Andrew. The colour in shots like this is amazing.

Andrew- you have such a wonderful ability to spot such interesting and aesthetic visual qualities in the simplest of things and in using your undoubted technical ability to bring it to the attention of everyone else. Cheers, Gary
