I am having a tough time getting used to the sweet spot on the sweet 35. I must be used to my other optics? Unless the composer pro is that much different than the composer. I bought the composer pro and only use it with the sweet 35 and I seem to be having a tough time with them together and am not sure where my problem is. Definitely a challenge but I'll never give up! Patience and practice...

Actually, I think you're making very effective use of it. I especially like the one of the road and the two on the beach. the first conveys a sense of loneliness and journey; the other two use the sweet spot to isolate one feature of the beach while still allowing us to see the context.

Excellent shots Rhonda. I've also found it a little easier to lose track of the sweet spot in the Sweet35's wider angle of view. Sometimes I'll frame up the shot at a couple stops darker just to I can clearly see the sweet spot. Then, before I shoot I'll open up the aperture a bit - it's pretty cool to watch the sweet spot shrink around the subject this way.

I absolutely love #6. #3 is a great action shot and I love how the trail through the trees is so well defined.
