LT, these are ok, but could stand improvement. No, I'm kidding, they are as Dustin says, stunning. Crazy how a great lens can help so much. I can't wait to see what you get when you figger it out...

That first pic shows what the lens can do.

Thanks for all the kind words...yes knee surgery this morning and if the wife don't watch me close I'll be in Wilson's Creek with the 7D this afternoon...

That 100mm is very cool indeed! I am still a Noobee with the 7D also so I am kinda "shooting from the hip" but "figgering" as I go...it seems I've read more books on photography than I ever did in school...lol..
