HI,
I requested this a while back and people helped. I'd like to ask it again-
could some people post up some photos taken from the same spot at 17mm and then at 10mm please? (or 8mm if your lens will go that wide?)
thanks,
Pa.

Beautiful landscape, Disco! Love the highlights on the clouds, especially.

Kalyan/nirvanaguy19, I'd say you are learning this lens very well indeed. Very appealing photos you link to there.

Here you go, Pa. Each picture is labeled with the focal length in the lower right corner. For completeness' sake, I've included the 20mm end of the scale as well. All shot from the same point.

10mm




17mm




20mm

Here in the Adirondacks the daytime temperatures are cold enough now for skim ice to form on the quiet pools.

I'm guessing he has the Tammy 17-50 like me and is debating the worth of a 10-20. I must admit, it's a huge difference in field of view.

I might get one in the new year, but probably the f/3.5 version.

Nice one Tamia. Still too warm for that here.

Very nice, but I think I would prefer it with the distortion straightened (camera held level).

Me too. With wide angle in particular, it's ideal to minimize perspective distortion by keeping the camera level. The competing ideal, however, is the client's desire to see certain things within a single photo. These ideals often conflict, and for my money, the client's ideal wins. For example, in this case, I couldn't back up any farther without completely losing the angle, so keeping the camera level would have either lost too much of the countertop, or too much of the stonework.

Of course, the clients view is the only one that Really counts.

Thanks Tamia , I used a Lee Filter 0.9 Grand ND hard for that shot , but I personally I think 3 stops was
a little too Dark , IMO 0.6 Grad ND would have been perfect .

Hi guys. I reprocessed (just into Black and White) a shot from June in Paris:

'Used 3 filters to achieve a 94 s exposure.
Lee: 10 stop ND, 3 stop soft grad ND and Heliopan Polariser 105mm with about 2 stops
