^ Agreed, there's a certain presence and calm in those photos I really like.
I brought my new XC 50-230 on a short bike run today. Sun was high in the sky, harsh light, nothing real interesting to shoot and not a lot of time for it. But I have to say... seems pretty impressive IQ wise for what you pay. I got a great deal on mine from someone who got it free with the camera and didn't have any use for it. And really, neither do I. But for the price I figured it could be fun to have once in a while. I had already decided not to get the 55-200 since, for me, it would certainly be sitting at home on a shelf the few times I would like to have it, due to size and weight.
Anyway, I met a few very friendly ducks. One of them tried to stand on my shoe but fell off, when I was busy shooting the one in the pics. Quick edit, LR5, RAW, minor adjustments and a few local (clarity, sharpness, nothing fancy...). The BW is Nik.
