Playing With My New Lens

If you've been reading my posts, you know I have been waiting for my Sigma 10-20mm lens to come. I wish I had this lens when my wife and I were visiting her parents in California.

I lost a lot of good photos today because I had my camera ISO set to 1600. I took some nice pictures of the kids too. I keep swearing that I'll check the ISO every time I turn on my camera, but I never do!

Here are a few pictures I took on Sessions Hill Road. I've posted these trees before and I'm sure I'll be back up there several times throughout the next year taking pictures.

I hope they're not oversaturated. I gave them a LAB color boost and sharpened them using a high-pass filter technique I found in the Digital Photography School forums.

It looks like you are enjoying the 10-20mm. Nice shots. I wish I still lived in the country sometimes. Especially at night.

Thanks Craig.

I am enjoying my new lens. It's a lot of fun, especially when shooting the girls. I haven't done too much of that, but I do have some neat photos of them.

I don't think I could live anywhere other than the country. Maybe for a short period, but I would find it to be difficult after a while. I'd take advantage of it, though, and get some nice nighttime shots.
