A few weeks ago, my wife and I traveled to the American Midwest to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with her family. Her father is a farmer, so I decided to bring my 40D along and see if I could capture anything interesting around the farm.
You'll see that a few of them are in black and white. I almost never use B&W, since I think it's really over-used, but I thought it was well-suited for those particular images. I am interested to know if others agree.
You'll also notice that I was a little overzealous with the polarizer in a couple of these -- note the dark portions of sky. But other than that, I'm pretty pleased with them.
All images were captured with my Canon 40D, paired with either my EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 or my EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6. I'd like to also note that this was the first time I've ever extensively used my 28-135mm lens, other than a few quick shots here or there. When I first tried the lens (about a year ago), I wasn't that impressed with it, but having used it in more real-life situations, I have to say that I'm pretty pleased with the image quality after all. I just wish it went a little wider.
I know these aren't perfect -- please let me know what you like or don't like.
