Yes! I like the "feel" of those photographs. Good atmosphere, or whatever you call it. (Why is it I get so inarticulate talking about photographs? Talk about cameras . . . no problem. Talk about images . . . yikes!)One more set and I'm done for the day. Promise! I wanted to see how the lens handled the strong backlight of the low evening sun. When the sun's rays were directly a part of the scene, it washed out the colors and detail, as I'd expect, but I never saw any purple flare. When I focused in tighter to remove the sun, the image cleaned up nicely.
