I'm back from San Juan Island where i managed to take a few good shots during a two days period. i Love San Juan Island. the scenery is amazing, and we went to see the orcas with Captain Jim, a great figure. he's based at snug harbor and certainly knows how to find these killer whales. kudos to him for keeping his calm in front of the 6 squeeking kids we brought on his boat!
So i'm starting to experiment with the 16-35 2.8 L and it's a great
piece of glass. i'm needing a bit of time as switching to wide angle
stuff is complicated when you're a telephoto freak. i also gave it a
try with that Cokin square filter and it works great, except i'm
bummed by the fact you have a LOT of vignetting at 16mm, even with the
supposedly wide angle filter holder. if the wide angle filter holder
is still showing such vignetting, then what are the options to truly
eradicate vignetting at 16mm? anyway i still have a lot of things to
discover here really.
in order to avoid having vignetting, i actually kept the shot at 21mm
