Default Tokina 11-16mm in France

Some pictures in generally cloudy conditions from a recent trip to France. Cities included Paris, Angers, and Chartres, with a visit to the Chateau Azay-le-Rideau near Chinon.

For my first time out with this lens (attached to my nearly 4-year-old XT/350D), I'm very pleased with its performance.

Yes, nice pics. Not too much distortion either. The b&w is great.

This pictures all look amazing! What did you do to make the colors stand out so much? Is it a polarizer?

Just fiddled with the saturation a little. Had a protective UV filter, but that's it. Taking more shots with this lens and continue to love it!

There are a few more shots using this lens in the Landscape section--I took it with me while climbing a couple of Colorado "Fourteeners" a couple of weeks ago.
