Having fun with the new lens!

I'm having lots of fun with the new lens and with photography in general the last few days. Today, I discovered that the NYS museum is having a photography exhibit beginning in September that is dedicated specifically to NYS landscapes. I hurriedly looked through my shots and submitted some, but thought, gee, I think I can find more out there somewhere. This first shot is sort of an accident. I actually just came upon this gorgeous field which I believe might be the same one "Zeezee" found a few days back. I shot in RAW and then changed my white balance to cloudy, uping the contrast just a hair.

This second shot I actually took last night. As the sun began to set, I traveled my vast yard in search of inspiration. I found it beneath my oak tree!

Who knows? Maybe one of my shots will be hanging on the wall of the museum in just a few weeks time! Definitely better than a first prize ribbon :)
