Remington Carriage Museum

Yesterday, Jan 06, 2011, my wife and I visited the Remington Carriage Museum in Cardston, Alberta. The museum has a collection of 280 horse drawn carriages. Lighting was fluorescent and quite dim. Here is a typical result from the DA 12-24 on my K10D. I specifically picked one that was taken at 12mm. I much prefer available lighting, and did not use flash.

EXIF: 12mm, ISO 800, 1/8 sec. @ f/4.
RAW conversion by DxO 6, White balance corrected to tungsten in LR 3.

Thanks! I actually have very mixed feelings about this picture. I like it a lot, but around an hour earlier, the sunrise was gorgeous. I had intended on being there for it, but overslept instead. Of course had I been there in time the lighting elsewhere may not have made for a good picture, but I'll never know

Albert, that is a cool shot! I don't know about where you are, but in many New Engand states, you can still rent rides in these carriages--orginal versions too! You can even have your pic taken while riding in them, though I"m sure it is a C or N shooter.

How do you like the DXO? I hear a lot of good stuff about the software. Also, did you hand hold this @ 1/8th of a sec, or tri-pod it? Wide open, @ 12mm--very nice in deed.

The Remington Carriage Museum is in Cardston, Alberta, Canada about a two hour drive from Sparwood British Columbia where I live. Alberta is cowboy country, so there are lots of carriages around. It's only a few miles North of Montana. Montana I-15 becomes Alberta 2 at the border.

DxO is magic. There is no other way to put it. If you lens/body combination is in there, it will fix a whole bunch of things. Even if I got a K5, I would still use DxO. There is a lot more horsepower in my computer than in a camera body. Download a free copy and see if it is worth using to you, as only your opinion counts. I did a test series with the 16-50, K10 and DxO. It's in my Flickr account here

[Edit]Yes, it was hand held with SR engaged. Works quite well for me.

In Chicago, created by Alexander Calder. I know some people don't like selective saturation, but I do!

That's a great treatment of this sculpture. It's one of the very few modern art works that I actually like.

Spectacular showcase here - vagrant10, those are magnificent.

And at 12mm the distortion is really well controlled:
