    Although I would still like to go full frame someday, the Sigma 8-16mm has really satiated my main desire for going full frame: the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8. The Sigma is obviously not on par with the Nikon, but it's a sweet lens, nonetheless. Some may not like the "falling over" look it sometimes gives to architecture, but most of the time, I think this look gives structures a more dynamic look (and if not, I usually correct it). So thank you, Sigma, for saving me a considerable amount of money!

    Sorry for the sporadic commenting and photo-posting as of late. The real world has intervened as of late, with work, other projects, and trying to improve our house all taking priority over Flickr. Hopefully I will get my priorities in line soon ;) but it looks like I'll be fairly busy for a couple more weeks at least.

      What do you usually shoot with?

      I have the Sigma 8-16 also and enjoy the high quality artifact free shots it provides. Sigma is a winner for crop sensor cameras. This looks interesting, but what most caught my eye was the hooded lights on the barn. When combined with the door look like some kind of 4 eye'd monster glaring down at you.

      Love that sky!

      You're an expensive Flickr contact, you have me thinking of one of those Sigma wides now to go with my 17-55.

      If you don't want to buy more camera gear, I highly recommend you don't read this: www.disneytouristblog.com/featured-post/disneyland-walt-d... ;-)

      I like the dizzying, 'fall over' effect from these lenses. Really draws you right into the photo as well as knocking you out of your chair. Unique location for a shot here, and what a doozy of a shot it is. Your photos never cease to amaze me Tom - keep it up!

      This is just fantastic! I have really come to love the look of a wide angle lens.

      Already read it several times, thanks.

      Love the POV here, Tom. The trees and building behind look 1000 feet tall! The hint of moon and that dark blue sky also add to this shot. Very cool!

      Totally awesome, as always! I'm so jealous of the deep blues that you get out of your skies on the night shots, I've really gotta learn how to do that.

      Excellent perspective of this space. I so love zooming in on the details but, after seeing so many fantastic wide shots lately, I'm starting to get the UWA itch.

      Great capture Tom.

      Like this one, Tom! I personally like the "falling over" look.

      All last school year, I got so busy in the school nurse office that I wasn't having as much time for flickr as I wanted. (It was the first time in like 10 years I had worked 5 day weeks as a nurse and although I loved the job, I was busy)! It happens to the best of us. I did find I could at least take my phone with me and answer through my flickr app. I have been using my summer off to get my computer/ext drive organized so it hopefully doesn't happen this next year. Hope things get a little less crazy for you and to see you back more often!
