    ohh right, I knew that. Someone awhile back posted an absolutely amazing panoramic extremely high res picture of that bridge (long night exposure). Might want to check that thread, somewhere in the depths of the OT Art/Photography forum...

    Yeah ive never been a sigma fan, but this lens is really quite solid.

    HSM squeals like a little girl (maybe why tomash likes sigma). little bit of green lens flare :greddy: but overall im very impressed, pretty sharp, little to no CA.

    I couldnt justify the price of a canon 10-22, in reality i probably should have got a 17-40L, but the 10mm is very wide even on the 1.6 crop which is a +

    I agree. Not very good subject matter in the first one but the second looks great!

    Yeah, most people always put the AF on Sigmas to be loud (and slow).

    very nice for first try, famous bridge and looks great.
     
  18. I orignally thought the first one looked good then I scrolled down and saw the second one and then the first one didn't look good anymore. :hs: :dunno:

    But they're both really good to me :bigthumb:

    In the first one you should photoshop that one building out though, the building on the far left half way in the border. It's adding light that doesn't need to be there. Just grab the smudge tool and take 3 slides to the left and you're done :bigthumb:

    hmm ... try a larger f/ ... works better for night shots .. also reduces the overbearing effect of lights

    I will try :)

    I did try doing some at a smaller aperture thinking it would be sharper, like say F9-11, but it never exposed properly so i stoped doing that. :ugh2:
