Cloud Reflections.
Lens: Sigma 8-16 Camera: K3 Photo Location: Grand Rapids, Michigan Aperture: F11 
Posted By: Scorpio71GR, 07-10-2016, 09:41 AM

The heat finally broke today so I took a walk downtown. I put the Sigma 8-16 on the K3 and only shot with that. The Sigma 8-16 has been giving me mixed results at best and I know there is nothing wrong with the lens. So I set a User mode just for the Sigma. Then it was back to remembering all about composition and holding the camera correctly. The 8-16 is a very unforgiving lens especially at 8mm.

Looking down the river, 8mm.


Looking across the river, 11mm.


8mm again.


Same spot 12mm, there is really big difference between 12 and 8mm.


Looking through the trees, 12mm.


Looking back down the river, 8mm.


Another shot across the river at 8mm.


I think the only shot I took at 16mm.


Same spot 8mm, I liked how the cloud fit in between the buildings here.



All photos had the Sigma 8-16 lens profile applied in Lightroom. A few shots had a few minor distortion tweeks applied but nothing major. All shots were at f11.

The 8-16mm really gives these shots and interesting look. I especially like the last. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Adam, the 8-16 really is a different lens. Some complain about lack of filter threads but I have yet to really see where a polarizer would be needed.

The database must have gotten a bit glitchy there!
