Very nice Joel, where are these shot from mate, The old buses look a little weird left out in the middle of nowhere. Nice perspective with the stream shot. How do find exposure with the sigma 10-20? do you have to adjust EV, or watch your metering?
Cheers.

Hey Scott, thanks..

Both shots are at Adelong Falls which is very near Tumut, which is about 30 minutes East off the Hume Hwy from Gundagai..

Yeah those buses were very strange if I had a wider shot you would see they were really in the middle of nowhere.. Bus graveyard?

Exposure with the Sigma 10-20 is fine, I haven't been using any EV adjustment at all with it and have had no metering/exposure problems.. I was really worried when I got that lens that I would find problems (as had caused me to sell many of my previous Sigma lenses) but I haven't its more than just good value for money, its a surprisingly good lens... Though I am sure sample variation exists as with all Sigma lenses... ;-)

Very nice contrast for the 2nd shot. Tumut seems a good place for photos!

The drive was worth it in the end for sure. Lucky that you had a good weather that day.

Looks like a great spot for lanscape photography, and nice weather as well.
I was wanting to get the Sigma 10-20mm, but was offered the DA 10-17 FE for a cheaper price so went with it instead. I really like the FE, but I have to watch exposure and metering, it's very easy to blow out the sky or bright areas with it. Other than that it's a fun lens, with great results.

You Aussies surely have some spectacular landscape, which you captured nicely. Your tour busses leave something to be desired, though .

I worked in a nearby town before and i did not see much spetacular scenery. It takes a bit of effort to look for them and search the places with a scortching sun. Drought hit everywhere in the rural area so most waterfalls are dried out as well. But part of the fun in these sorts of areas though

Sigma 10-20mm

A question for joele, or anyone who might know.

I am looking to buy a Sigma 10-20mm for my Pentax *ist DL. But my camera need the appeture set to "A". I noticed the Sigma does not have an "A" setting on the lens. How would I get that to work then?

Meter

Actually I just found the feature in the manual. Now will the meter still work?
