Hey Gdad/Code/ukcatfan - just to follow up on what I said during the Summit, the Samyang fisheye I mentioned is apparently a "stereographic fisheye"... there's more info in a review here. It's actually an 8mm F3.5 lens - kind of an odd duck but apparently it makes very nice images. They are selling for $290 on eBay. Samyang is an interesting up-and-coming DSLR lens producer, they also have an 85mm F1.4 that is generally pretty well regarded, they'll have a 35mm F1.4 out later this year, and have just released a full-frame compatible 14mm F2.8 for you UWA lovers out there. They're all manual focus and free from electronics - and they're cheap! The 14mm will probably be $300-350.

Last weekend I decided to use my Tamron 10-24mm F3.5-4.5 almost exclusively for my trip just for a different perspective. I had the lens on for all of Epcot and Magic Kingdom, only switching to the 18-250 for AK. One thing I hadn't really done much before was taking night shots with the UWA lens.

Last Friday was a full moon, and one of the brightest of the year, so I decided to do some tripod night shots with the UWA lens on the A550 around Epcot Center's World Showcase. The UWA perspective was fun at night, the full moon made the sky aglow, and the clouds were thick and fast-moving, which gave some crazy streaks and wild glowing skies.

Here's the China Pavilion's Temple of Heaven and reflecting pool:


China's pavilion gate:


Germany pavilion:




Italy pavilion:






Japan pavilion:






Comments, questions, critique always welcome.

I like China #1 the best -- nice foreground and nice sky enhance the overall composition.

I think the Italy one doesn't work as well, due to the layout of the pavilion. Maybe a different perspective would work better?

Fun stuff. I'm jealous that you live so close and have the opportunity to get over there so often.

Regards,

Boris

Great images Justin. That light from the full moon gives the images a very different look with the dramatic sky. Well done!!

Zackiedawg: Those are awesome shots. You took full advantage of that full moon with some of the best night shots of Epcot I've seen. I even like Italy. I think the lines in the pavement add a lot of interest.

Gdad: Every time I see a new shot has been posted by you, I can't wait to see what you've come up with next. You continue to outdo yourself. That TTA shot is amazing!

Yeah, I should clarify, I meant Italy #1, Number 3 is cool.

I'm at work, and not paying close enough attention.

I concur. Great shot. Was this another of those "stay in the park past closing time to get an empty street" shots?

Regards,

Boris

Thanks. Every night there is "one of those" nights.

Was just catching up on news in the photo world after my trip and read that the Tokina 11-16/2.8 is coming to the Alpha mount. Hmm.... intriguing... tempting to switch from my Sigma maybe?
