    Yea, I like the lens also, but to be honest, it doesn't give me the "umph" i look for on landscapes, which is what I originally bought it for. Those cars were the first time I've gotten results I liked from it. For example, from a recent trip to Mexico, I took some pictures at the ruins at Tulum, which overlook the beach & ocean from a cliff. This should be ideal for wide angle IMO, but most of the shots looked like this:

    10mm f/4.5


    The only one I got that I like and thought was effective at wide angle (13mm f/4.5) was this one:



    So maybe I just need to play with the lens more, but I'll take any advice anyone has to offer on this.

    Something about it grabs people of a lot of different nationalities, who I'm sure have no idea WTF Sun Trash is.

    This is one of the shows I set up remote lighting for, in fact it might have been the first one, which shows how easy it is to get it right.

    Here's a link to the comments
    Sun Trash at Alex's Bar on July 12 2008 on Flickr - Photo Sharing!
    That's an interesting thought. I don't often go diving into my stats on Flickr, but your post got me to wondering what was my biggest hit-getter and comment-getter.

    If you didn't have one already on, which it looks like you didn't, try a polarizing filter. The blues, greens, and grays seem to be washed out a bit from the sun especially in the first shot. That sun is in a tough place in shot 1.

    The composition looks fine to me.

    You're right, I don't have any filters for my lenses. I'll start doing some research into them.

    Yeah. That's a five-shot HDR. The D3 makes it really easy to shoot RAW for HDR conversion. Since it can give me nine frames per second in Continuous High mode, I can shoot them hand-held (as that one was) if I've got enough light.

    I don't do much HDR stuff anymore. I think it was sort of a phase I was going through (along with everyone else here at the time).

    I like this shot a lot. The shallow DOF and the shiny countertop are what do it for me. But it might be a wee bit harsh on the highlights, I think. Maybe taking Lightroom and dialing back the exposure 1/3 of a stop or so and checking your highlight recovery to take the wicked bright spot off that right-hand burger's top bun and the onion underneath the front burger would make this one into a total winner?

    Spot on! I was so into showing the dark areas of the meat that I missed the highlights.


    Here's the whole set.

    I sent them in this morning and they will be printed in the District and all over LB within 24 hrs. Instant gratification!
