More LBA... what, my Mirror lens wasn't enough?

Heh, while travelling in Nanaimo, BC, I came across a store that had a Sigma 70-300 APO for sale at $199 Can., so I figured hey, why not?

My bags were beyond capacity flying home this morning. A trip for work, meant coming back with an extra Pentax, and three lenses to add to my collection. Man oh man... nothing like a long flight to make you get the itch to take shots with them (-;

Wow - great use of creative exposure. You use spot metering there?

However, I would crop out the window. It's a bit too out of focus.

Firemate those shots are incredible. Can't think of any possible enhancement.

Great shots

The last one is my favorite there.

I meant, just the window, keeping everything else pretty much in. But all those crops are too good effect!

Heh, thanks everyone! Except, Hyena, the rest arent crops (-; I had just placed the camera directly on the (thankfully) clean window for the longer exposures.
