agreed. except I like the last one the best. expanded HDR + long exposure + stitching. this might be a lot of work unless he had done it several times now that it's just normal routine.

Just to explain the process: 7 long exposures in manual mode with the K10, tweaking shutter speed and ISO as the light fell. Single RAW files pushed and pulled around a bit (so not full HDR), stitched in Microsoft ICE if I remember rightly, little bit more enhancement and cleanup afterwards.

Not my usual approach (far too pp-intensive for a lazybones like me!) but it's nice to step out of the comfort zone and try something new from time to time. Glad people like it anyway!

Sigma 10-20

Here are two from my Florida trip, same place, one a horizontal shot, the other vertical. Taken during the same trip where I used my Sigma 100-300, pictures posted, coincedently, in post right after yours.

So what FL and aperture did you use, if you care to share? I assume you did that with the camera turned vertical. Did you use a panorama device on the tripod?

Just a fantastic panorama, congratulations!

A fellow member of a photo club showed me a 6 shot 360 panorama of a nearby artists studio. Used a tripod but no panorama device and photomatix to do both HDR and stitching(i think stitiching was done with same software). Came out great, printed it up on 2' by 4' i believe. But not nearly as pretty as that village.
3 shot HDRs so a total of 18 shots.

Hi Phil,

Thanks for the kind comments. I don't have those files to hand right now but I'd say they were likely f8-10 and at the very wide end, as that is where mine seems to perform best. If I remember rightly I shot the images landscape with plenty of overlap (no panorama device) to help stitch such a wide-angle panorama together smoothly.

This is the same village in portrait orientation about a year earlier:



and a few more with the 10-20 to keep the thread moving...

I just took this with my new Sigma 10-20 and I don't think it's very clear.

I love mine, I think it's my favorite lens of the bunch!
Here's 2 shots I took with it of my friend's father's first truck...a '39 Dodge:

Great shots. I do have this lens; purchased about six months ago. Has anyone had success indoors with flash? I've the F360z & I can't seem to do any good at all. I've deleted the few attempts I've made.

Also, I can't seem to find any examples in this thread except for a flash assisted one.

Thanks

I shoot it, with success, flash assisted. Keep in mind, I know very little about flash. I have a shot earlier in the thread with the onboard Pentax flash--1000 ISO, btw. I also shoot with a hotshoe flash. You just have to get used to flash. Do you shoot a lot with flash--if so, it should be a cinch for you--if not, just practice a bit.
