Everglades Holiday Park

Sunsets can be kind of boring. They're such a commonly photographed subject. Which is why you should always strive to place a foreground element whenever you take a sunset, or sunrise for that matter.
Today I went out to test a Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 lens a friend had loaned me. I've been feeling the need to up my game in lenses lately, having mostly kit lenses to work with at the moment. Not that there's anything wrong with kit lenses (although many would disagree), I've always thought that if you're not a low light shooter, and if you're careful about selecting the right aperture for your intended subject, kit lenses work just fine. In fact, some do, however once you begin to advance a bit in your photography you begin to notice subtle differences in performance that you just can't deny. Things like chromatic aberration, corner sharpness, and contrast. This little walkabout cemented this for me. I could definitely benefit from an upgrade, and so hence begins my quest to purchase one of these lenses.
