    Well... no car content here... but I did manage to try to push the boundaries of my 35mm f1.8 prime lens. It's starting to become one of my favorite lenses.

    Got these shots while I was... the, driving and waterfall ones are taken with my 18-55 lens but the rest are the 35mm

    The pics were taken at the Bruce Peninsula National Park in Ontario, Canada... the weather was really crappy the whole week so there was only so much I could salvage.

    The software was Elements 7 for most of the post production... I figured out that if you adjust the 'black' bar almost all the way to the right on pics like the fire shots or the lilly than you get a nice crisp black background for them. The HDR one was done with Photomatix 3.2... excellent software for HDR and exposure fusion.

    Thanks for the comments guys

    Here are a few more I managed to salvage... not very good because I was just walking and shooting, but still managed to get something out of it. Misty lakes at sunset are not very easy to get point and shoot style...
