Went for a walk near the river "Schelde" this saturday. There wasn't much interesting to shoot, but I did have my camera with me, and I couldn't come home empty handed now could I? Wink

I used my Cosinon 35mm f2.8 for these. Actually I'm quite surprised at how it performed, not nearly as bad as I expected.
They were all shot at f4 or f8.
f2.8 is unusable on this lens...

Bedankt, Guido Smile


Don't toss that kit lens away though, 35mm is hardly wide-angle on a DSLR, so if I really need wide-angle I use it too. (don't have anything else for it)
+ the kit lens is pretty decent quality compared to other brands...

I just wanted to see how that lens did really. It had been lying around unused for a few months.

The third one is my favorite. Nice composition.

Tom, nice B&W shots! When you don't have mountains, valley shots
work just as well! Wink I can relate to that, my last name, Ruyle, is
derived from rulles (Dutch), or one who lives in the valley.

Pretty country, Tom!

Beautiful pictures Tom. Despite its history, it always seems so peaceful in Belgium. Your pictures of these lovely meadows really bring out this feeling of timeless tranquility.

Can I ask exactly where are these pictures taken? I found the River Schelde on the map at Antwerp, but I lost its route somewhere following it upstream. My wife's uncle is buried at Isieres, near Ath, and we once visited his grave there in 1984. I guess it must be somewhere near there?

I like the composition of all of them. Nos 1 & 2 have good contrast but No 3 seems a little too dark for me, maybe it's my monitor. I also like the one of the old building on your site, is it a church?
