Jim, Nothing too spectacular here but all taken with the 24-85 on Day 1. I have done a bit of post processing in lightroom but nothing dramatic. Next time, I will even be able to shoot RAW! duh! there is a dedicated button to select image mode!
Brisbane River 5 minutes walk from work showing the (fairly new) Kurrilpa Pedestrian bridge
Did a bit of work to try to tone down the sign and a very slight crop to remove some foreground clutter.
Nothing is pixel peaking sharp but then the conditions were probably not ideal. I could not have taken a few of these photos with my old camera. I will leave you to judge the sharpness. I was still struggling with focus points and focus modes.
