    I love the strong lines and use of shadows. Wonderful pics! That is a lens I've drooled over a ton.... you're not helping any! :biggrin:

    At first glance, I noticed mostly the archtiecture/structure, then shadows and people.

    Interesting when I looked at the pics twice, for all the light and how bright they are, there almost seems to be a lonely vibe to them (except for the kids running)...maybe introspective? ... people walking away, in shadows, etc.

    Thank you for posting up a few pics to enjoy and make me think a little during my break between conference calls!

    I like the very bold framing and compositions. Many of these could even be considered architecture shots, not something I would normally think of for a short telephoto. Learned something to try in future.

    Beautiful work. I love the combination of architecture and street photography, along with the use of shadows. Well done!

    Love the photos, but I have to wonder what's up with all the solitary people waking around large open spaces! :eek::D:)

    I especially like the 2nd and 5th images, as the incorporation of a lone person provides perspective and size. The second demonstrates excellent utilization of repeating lines/patterns, with a bit of "rulebreaking" by having the woman walking out of the scene. Nicely done!
