Traveling with my Sigma 10-20mm
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm Camera: K2000 Photo Location: Russia

I posted these in the Sigma 10-20 thread, but thought others might like to see what this lens can do. This was from my first trip after getting this lens - it took me a little bit of time to figure out the best way to use a wide angle lens like this, but I liked how these turned out.

Two very good travel photos. I might try pulling down the highlights a touch in the second, those white walls are on the fringe of really assaulting the eyes, although I image they did at the time.
I found the Sigma 10-20 to be an excellent lens for including foreground elements, such as the bear in your first photo, and especially useful for doing interiors of churches/cathedrals, which I find myself doing often when traveling in GB & continental Europe.

Thanks, everyone! I really like this lens - it's a real chunk to have to carry around, but it was worth it!
