Dave,

No HDR here. I just intentionally overexposed when I shot it to bring out the sky, stars, and the colors in the tree. It had the unintended consequence of blowing out the bottom of the tree a bit, but I think that's minor. I really had one heck of a time getting this shot in the first place...

Sadly we are back. And sadly, I had to send the lens back to lensrental.com today.

The tokina is a lot of fun to shoot with. You can get right up on stuff. It has more vision than my eyes. I shot the first couple of days with it solely.

Here are my initial uploaded sets.

And a couple of examples.

Don't you steal my idea now!!! I honestly was thinking the same thing, that I would shoot HalloWishes standing behind Walt facing the castle and using the Tokina. I guess we'll find out!

Your idea works pretty well, just don't tilt the lens up or the distortion comes in.

Sort of like this?


Clicking the picture takes you to its Flickr page, where you can access camera settings/EXIF data!

Geez!! What does it take to come up with an original idea around here?!

First John with the fisheye fireworks, then everyone else with the UWA shots. Ugh. Back to the drawing board.

Great examples all. Here are a few I finally got processed with my new Sigma 12-24. Debating if I should take it back for Sunday night- it is a lot of fun to use.

They're all fantastic, Jeff. Whether it's the Sigma/D700 combo, you as the photographer or a program you use to process these---they're amazing. I especially love the shot of Minnie's house---I don't often see people posting night pics of Toon Town.

Thanks for all the "SUPER" shots and great ideas of how to use/shoot the WA everyone !!

Jeff...are your "to die for" shots Topaz or HDR?? I don't have any post-processing software except picassa. Is Topaz/HDR a stand alone system or a plug in for PS? Sure wish I did..maybe when I get back.
BTW..Can't believe Minnie's house is coming down...How SAD !!!

Well...didn't get too much practice in during these past 2 weeks, but, my 11-16 is on the camera and ready for Wednesday's arrival at WDW. Hope I'll remember much of what you all have taught me here. Wish me luck!
