Q: Best All Around Canon Lens

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

it was a cold, crisp saturday morning as i was driving along the atlantic coastline of new jersey. it was partly cloudy but i didn't let that stop me. i was in search for a shot or two and i came across this pier. so i grabbed my canon and hoodie and proceeded to get a closer look. When i walked under the structure, i saw this shot and it was all mine.

    Besides loving the symmetry and smooth color variations I can't help but hear the song "Under the Boardwalk" while looking at this. You have one heckuva eye. Great shot!

    Matt, you don't know how hard it was not to call this shot "under the boardwalk". I thought that would be overkill.
