Zee wieners do enjoy that hedge - and especially all the imaginary critters they believe it to hold..
Yep brettania, it's that kit lens - and I too am quite fond of it. Would have liked the VR version, but optically I find it rather amazing, considering the price. Build and the front focus ring is revealing of it's price, but I don't bangit around and I can focus manually quite well with it.
For the most part I enjoy the ka-pow colors, but I'm developing an increasing appreciation of more low-key images. Things more subtle and soft.
Love yours and palakaboys flower shots in this forum-section - both of which gives me ideas for other shots. There is a magnificent park here in Vancouver with over 7.500 different species of plants and flowers and now that the summer is beginning to take hold, I'm going to have to go there to give you a run for your money..lol.
