This is one of the images I mentioned yesterday, that Camilla liked and I didn't think I could process. Anyway, I had another look at it today and came up with a version that I'm pleased with. I think the main problem I had with this one is that I had a preconceived idea about how I wanted it to look (bright, punchy, and so on) and the lighting conditions at the time just didn't work for that sort of image. Anyway, having processed it in a way that's more sympathetic to the original shot I think I've come up with a version that's ok.

On another matter, I'm selling my 70-200 f/4 L as I'm going to replace it with the f/2.8 IS. I'm selling it boxed, with the original manual, the optional ET-74 hood (not sure what this now costs, as I can't find one online, but suspect it's around £25.00) and a 67mm B+W MRC UV filter (which retails for around £30.00). Jessops are currently selling it for £489.00 (without hood or filter) so I'd be happy to sell it for around £340.00. The lens itself is in mint condition but the hood has a couple of minor scratches. Email me if you're interested.

Just to let you know that I've now sold my 70-200 f/4. Thanks for all the interest.

Related to that: the cheapest price I can find for the 70-200 f/2.8 IS in the UK is £1248.98 from shopping4cameras.com. I'm not sure that it will be cheaper anywhere else but if anyone does know of a less expensive source then I'd be grateful if they could let me know.
