This weekend I had the opportunity to go to my favorite place, the beach! The sun was shining, but it was quite chilly with a bit of a wind. For me, though, any day at the beach is an amazing day no matter the weather. I decided to solely use my 50mm lens to become familiar with it and see what it could do for me in terms of sharpness. I definetly see a difference from my kit lens and along with back button focusing and other things I have been doing to achieve sharp photos, I am happy with the results. For the photo below I wanted to capture the solitude of the beach (only the die hards were out for any long period of time :o). I decided to go creative with the editing to change the hazy dull sky to something a bit more vibrant. Just basic settings to achieve this. I really like the stillness of this photo. 

Settings: ISO 100, 50mm, ss1/200, f/11
