Many of your shots with the 180 have helped sway me to adding this lens to my gear.

I'm glad, I think it's a lens a lot of folks should take a close look at. Hopefully it's working out for you.

Thanks Robin and Mist. I do know all about The Rule and use it often, and in several of these (not all) it wold have added to the image a bit.

There is a great deal more to composition than the thirds rule.

There certainly is. I tied your comment re composition to 'inthemists', and thought you were referring to simply the thirds rule as well, sorry.

Beauties as usual moving comfort.

Haven't shot with the 180 for a few years. Are you finding much purple fringing in high contrast scenes?

Thanks Mike. Yes, as a matter of fact - the lens's achilles' heel is the PF in some reflective surfaces or extremely backlit + defined edge situations. It doesn't bother me much, and is fairly easily removed in post, with LR 4 a least. Since I don't notice it as much as some folks I sometimes don't bother removing it. But it is a consideration with this lens. No lens is perfect (but IMO the 180 comes pretty d*mn close )

Hi moving_comfort,

Your work is gorgeous. I spent a great deal of time viewing your Flicker site. You've reminded me of the quiet beauty of photography; I've added your site to my "Favourite Photographers" bookmark folder.

Thanks for sharing your way of viewing the days.

Thank you very much for saying so, Londongal. I enjoy the hobby; hopefully that comes across.
