    These are all from the FahrFromHome show in Sylvan Lake, AB, while driving down. Have tons more, but I'm working like a dog lately, so no time for processing yet.

    Here's a few I went through quickly, C&C not really needed.. I know they're not great :dunno::

    i probably would have gone with a slower shutter to get some more background blur.

    Don't sell yourself short. Some of those are great shots.

    I'm pretty sure most were at f14 or even smaller. I've never really taken pics at those numbers, so I didn't know if I should keep going, didn't know if I'd be sacrificing sharpness :dunno:


    And yeah, I thought about the ND filter when I got home, but I was using a 77mm lens I bought the day before, and I only have one ND filter, 52mm

    circular polarizer would have gotten you a stop or two as well.

    CPOL on a Sigma 10-20 looks way too weird. Ultra wize angles polarize naturally, so it would have looked super fake.

    Basically what I thought. It's my first time doing anything more than snapping casually at a passing car. It was the very first time I'd used that lens too, so I'm not overly excited about it, but I'm not disappointed either.

    I got 3 printed today that looked great after processing. These ones I basically just did basic touch-up stuff.

    I'm really surprised it took so long for people to comment on it. I just made an action for it, first time I've tried it, it worked, and I didnt wanna re-do it :o
