I took the jump last week and bought the Composer along with the macro kit, wide-angle and telephoto attachments and optical set. It's almost overkill so I've been trying to stay basic at the beginning, taking "baby steps". All double-glass, mainly f/4 with the wide-angle used almost half the time. I'm an A-type personality so letting go of tack sharp shots with perfect exposure has been liberating! Thanks to a lot of you for some of your samples as inspiration.

Looks like you are enjoying experimenting with your new Composer. I especially like the fence image.

Welcome Steve,
I think you are off to a nice start of getting over your obsession with tack sharp (edge to edge anyway) images. You will have a blast.

Thanks for the encouragement everyone. This appears to be an enjoyable, easy-going forum. I look forward to submitting further work for critique, viewing some of your spectacular art, and getting to know you all better.

Cheers!

Excellent composition all around. I love the subjects and the way you're exploiting the images in post-processing, particularly the bike and your play with saturation. I'm with you on the A-type, and you hit it on the head: the lensbaby changes the rules and makes it liberating!
