I just got the DFA 15-30. I really am impressed by its flare resistance. Not DA 15 level, but still pretty good.

This is a sunrise shot with it...

About appropriate versus inappropriate times and situations to take photographs
Yes, there is always controversy when controversial subjects are involved......Here I documented with a photo, that squirrel that found himself a private place int he woods to relax and relieve his tension. Using my good judgment, I did not document just how he did it. I think I did the right thing?


Nothing controversial here. You aim, focus is instant even with the big ol' slow Bigma...and you fire! Gotta love the K1!

Yup, you invaded his privacy. Good thing you weren't using a drone. He'd have legal right to knock it down with a well-aimed acorn.

Thankfully, his mama came along and advised him that if he didn't stop he would eventually go blind. Of course, he wasn't worried.......he said he just intended to keep at it until he needed glasses.

A very nice image.

Are those buildings on the right of the frame meant to be so curved, or are we seeing lens geometric distortion at work? It's hard to tell with modern architecture.

Contemporary architects work hard to design something original, to create a building whose image will linger in your mind long after seeing it just once. Some are remarkably successful, and some oddly shaped, seemingly illogically designed buildings have become iconic.
