I can critique every one of these photos to death to be honest. They just happen to be the best I've taken this week. Obviosly I haven't taken many
Weather has been quite nasty as of late. Thinking about going to the beach anyway...?

Shot from inside my van in traffic, the building caught my eye and I whipped out the cam with a quickness. I probably would have composed it quite a bit differently had I been on the ground walking. I cropped it a bit as is to ditch most of a blown out sky, it was late in the day and the building was in shadows. I don't like to crop too much, just wastes pixels. It'd be nice if I had just composed it well from the get-go.

Gloomy day makes for a grey shot. Shot taken w/Sigma 55-200 on the longer end. In certain locations, this lense, and my 40-150 lense are just fine for bird shots. Check some out here
. I will be getting a faster 50-200ZD lense and probably a 1.4TC by the end of the year for a bit more speed, more sharpness, and a bit more reach. At this particular location, the birds didn't have a reason to come in closer. I wanted the composure with the pier anyway.
