"Inside Antelope Canyon" by agsy
Ever since my wife and I were planning our western US trip I was researching which wide angle lens to take with me. I did read that the Antelope Canyons are one of the most photographed places in the US so I wanted to take advantage of our visit and take as many great shots as I could. I read a few reviews about the 14mm Rokinon and I decided to buy it. And I did manage to take some really good photos with it.
As we entered into the canyons that morning, I had my Rokinon 14mm on my K5II. I tried a couple of settings in aperture priority mode and I ended up using exposure bracketing (-1.3, 0 +1.3) since I wanted to be able to capture the dark and the bright areas without blowing the highlights. Usually the under exposed image was the most acceptable since the dark areas can be easily brightened without losing much detail.
