I love the colors! The depth changes between close and far is great. Everything looks so calm and comfortable...it makes you want to go and walk it!

Love the shots you have been producing with this new lens mate. The sheer clarity, colour, and focus from it, and this image is superb. Looks like such a good road for a drive as well.

Thank you Mary. The DOF makes it look somewhat miniature I think :)

I'm getting mad hearing people who want the trees along roads to be cut down due to safety of the drivers and passangers. And there are some in my country, unfortunately, and sometimes they win :( Good you have such scenic roads! :)

just meaning that the roads here are larger, most have shoulders.. so from what im used to seeing this looks tiny, almost a miniature version of our streets. it looks quaint. :P

Beautiful scene and perfectly composed. Personally I would've liked either much more DOF or much less.

This was wide open 2.8 at 200mm. I have a few others stopped down around f/8 - 11 but prefer the softer DOF in this one myself. Cheers Phil.
