Default Hike at Nose Hill Park, Calgary

Here's another look at how the Samyang 14mm 2.8 lens worked on this hike. No other lens used and it performed incredibly. As focus is a manual function on this lens, what I did to focus on the flowers was to use the live view mode on the back of the camera, zoomed in with that feature and adjusted focus that way. Works very well doing it that way.

When it came to photographing the dog, I predetermined where my dog was going to be and made a rough guess and dialled in the focus for it and waited for him to run into the frame.

Wow spy, i love number 3...the depth of field for me is just spot on, colors are excellent and the positioning of the front most flower just draws your gaze the entire time. Love it!

They're all fantastic! I'm partial to #3 and #5.

#3 for the same reasons Travis gave.

#5 because it's just such a happy composition! It looks like a photo that would be in a frame on someone's desk, next to their computer.
