Hi Alex, I keep finding stunning images in your gallery long after you've posted them, and probably forgotten all about them! But this one is really impressive. I love the way the sky changes from purple to yellow, and the water looks more like glass!

As quiet as a painted ship upon a painted ocean. One can feel the peace emanating all through the picture. Beauty to reflect upon."g"

Thanks for all your comments. Yes, Mary, I think the lens is pretty amazing and I really like it. It almost a necessity for most indoor and landscape shots when using a DSLR EF-S lens for a Canon camera like the XT, 20D, or 30D. I'm glad I made the purchase. Some things I notice about the lens, is a slight chromatic abberration in some images, (which looks like a slightly golden hue; pretty nice, though not completely natural) some vingnetting and distortion of vertical lines when shooting wide open. In general, these effects are pretty minor, and can be adjusted out for the most part using software. Considering the capabilities of this Ultra Wide Angle and the quality of the images for a realtively modest price, it's definitely a keeper.

The scene has a serene, quiet and painterly look. Very nice. I've been checking out that lens and it is on my wish list. Do you like it?
