Hi folks;

Just my luck, the Guggenheim was closed the day we went. It's one of my favorite buildings. Take an elevator to the top and follow the spiraling galleries to the bottom.

This was taken this last week in NYC with a Kodak DX6490 at f4.0, 1/350 sec. I was using the Schneider Kreuznach 0.7 wide-angle lens. It was kind of overcast, so the sky is quite washed out. The only processing involved is auto-levels and save-for-web.

Let me know what you think. I'm something of a beginner, but eager to learn more.

Nice! I'm impressed by the image quality, considering an attachment lens was used.

Hi there;

The Schneider-Kreuznach 0.7 wide-angle is a huge piece of glass. It captures a lot of light, and it's optically matched to the principal lens of the Kodak dx6490. It is a really easy lens to use, and the results are very consistent. I recommend it for anyony using the 6490.
