My 580EX finally came in the mail yesterday! At time of posting, I only have a couple of shots off with it, but I'm looking forward to lots of experimenting in the coming days. It's a lot more automatic than I thought it would be. It seems to always know whats happening around it and compensating...with amazing results.

This is the entrance of the capitol building (from yesterday's shot). I extracted the red channel, since it gave a lot more detail and brightness to the area above the doors. Thanks yet again to Margaret for the title.

I am simply amazing at the consistent 'crispness' of your shots.
