New lens leaves

Whoop - it arrived!! I haven't really given my new lens a proper run out - a dog lead clamped between your knees when trying to zoom in with a telephoto is so not ideal. But I did think I might get some bokeh from the sun on the water. Other than that a very irritating day - I thought I would have all of my paperwork sewn up but instead I have people failing to get back to me all day and all of the gas and electricity bills printing out in Japanese. And another 6th Form Open Evening tonight with quite hideous traffic and a weird spooky fog on the way home which may have been mist or smoke.
Three good things:
1. Three lovely birthday presents today and it isn't my birthday for another 360 days.
2. Dog on knee, cat on desk, can't see a thing but I'm popular!
3. Sorted out taxis for Rachel coming back after karate so we don't have to worry about her walking 20min down dark alleys.
Judith, that is a wonderful picture. Congrats on the new lense. A tele is something I have on my wish list!

Superb shot. Great colours and wonderful separation between the foreground and background. I see you shot at f/8 so you must have selected your shooting position very carefully.

Lovely tones and bokeh! Beautiful shot!
posted November 15th, 2012  
@glenmoor In what sense - to be honest I set the exposure down a couple of notches, aimed at the sparkly water and went for it. I'm very keen to learn for the future though.
posted November 15th, 2012
