Very nice.

I'd consider cropping it tighter on the rays and show less water in the foreground.

I hear Badger's available as a willing alternate, incase it doesn't work out... just sayin' that might be an option.

Is it swim-able water?

Thanks. I really wrestled with the decision on how to crop the picture. I tried to keep the composition in thirds, but the dark sky on the close crop was kind of boring, so I went with more water. If I took a wider view and showed more sky, I had to lose some of the thirds composition, but the picture looks more like it looked in real life.

No, that is in my parents hometown of Baakleen, Lebanon. I'm currently visiting over the summer.

The water is very clean and completely swimable but may take some getting used to because it is heavier than salt water. 5- 10 minutes in there and usually everyone is exhausted!

I much prefer this crop. It really emphasizes the drama in the sky.

Was playing around with the 135L yesterday. I made up this little DOF demo. Kind of hokey, but it clearly shows the changes as the aperture gets smaller. It would have worked better with less wind and a better variety of objects in and out of the in-focus area.
