Winter by Bucky2K Winter by Bucky2K
I believe this is one of my strongest waterscape pieces to date. I must have been quite amusing to watch take this picture. Because of the partly cloudy skies, there were intervals of sun and shade. When a cloud took over, I'd run back to my car and warm up my freezing hands, and perhaps change lenses. Then, as soon as the sun came back out, I'd run back down to the beach and snap a few more shots before my fingers froze. It was worth it!

Thanks to all you fellow D70ers for your kind comments and feedback. This was taking using the Sigma 10-20mm lens, which I love. Any D70er would not be disappointed with this killer ultra-wide lens!

Two exposures combined and adjusted in PSP 10.

Suddenly I want a 10mm lens.
Reply
:iconbucky2k:
Bucky2K Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2006
You would not be disappointed. It's the best thing. I'm going hiking in Montana this summer, and because weight is an issue I can only bring minimal camera gear. My lenses I will bring? The Sigma 10-20mm (which is quite damn heavy), and the trusty Nikkor 50mm f/1.8.

I've heard that the Tokina 12-24mm is a better performer in the same price range. There are many reviews around comparing the super-wides, but I am freaking happy with the Sigma.

:icondiabloadvocati:
DiabloAdvocati Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2006
Yeah, I've always been happy with Sigma lenses. I have the 70-200 2.8 lens, which is fantastic, and the 15-30mm lens, which is great (except I lost the lens hood cover, which means I can't put the lens cap on it)...I keep the 15-30mm on it constantly, since on a digital it's really more like a 20-45mm lens. I also have the Nikon 50mm 1.4, which is as good a portrait lens as you can get.

:iconbucky2k:
Bucky2K Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2006
I hadn't seen the Sigma 15-30mm before; that looks like one solid performer, especially for digital. I found the 50mm to be an awesome portrait lens as well.

DiabloAdvocati Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2006
I have the 50mm 1.4 Nikon lens...great lens, but it only goes up to F16, which means it lets in too much light for the kind of studio work I normally do.
Reply
:iconbucky2k:
Bucky2K Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2006
That's a little surprising to hear; I always wish my lenses were able to let in more light, not less! The f/1.8 lens goes all the way down to f/22; maybe it's worth it to get that lens, just because it's so cheap?

:icondiabloadvocati:

For natural lighting, yeah it's great...but for studio photography, it's no good. :-/
