  • Kaj386NL 3y

    Wow great picture! I love this one.
  • Stephen Kacirek 3y

    Your processing really put some shine on this shot for sure, I like the angle and you are right the POV adds a huge amount of depth... Brian I know you shoot pentax, but I think tokina makes a pentax compatible lens (not sure though) I've tried both Nikon wides and owned the sigma 10-20 and the tokina 11-16 is the best of the bunch in my opinion and very low distortion for an UWA. If you can try one out, it's a contstant f2.8 if that matters to you but i'm usually in the f5.6-f10 range so I don't need it but it is there.

    I actually the ghost pedestrians crossing the gold tones man...

    Stephen Kacirek I looked into the Tokina, but they don't make it for Pentax. I was thinking sigma 10-20 or tamron 10-24. I'll have to do some research. Thanks for the tips.

    Processing looks great, well done Brian! I had the 10-20 for my nikon and it was very nice, can't say much about the tamron.

    Awesome work again Brian, your post work is always killer and this is no exception! I had a sigma 10-20mm for a few years and just sold it off. It was a good lens for the price point but I'd not buy it again as I found it too soft when wide open. The quality can differ from lens to lens I've been told though...
  • Jason Mrachina 3y

    That Sigma is a great lens, this is tack sharp! I need to get this one. Nice image!
  • Brian Koprowski 3y

    Dave Brookfield That's good to know, Dave. Thanks you everyone!
  • Basic Elements Photography 3y

    very cool shot. Love the tone.
  • Simon James Foot 3y

    Excellent Blue Hour shot with those great lights Brian! I have the Sigma 10-20 f/3.5 EX DC HSM and have to say it's as sharp as me shoulder blade for the most part but, as Dave said, a little soft round the edges wide open. I've seen mixed reviews regarding performance which may go to prove that Sigma have not quite got their quality control in order.

    Spectacular wide angle image of this street scene in Chicago. I agree with the previous comments in regards to the post-processing. Very, very eye-catching.
