I took this image last evening at a place called Plum Pt. I was experimenting with a new wide angle lens and am pleased with the results. I like the ability to get up close and yet keep everything in focus. Hope you enjoy.

Awesome! Very cool shot. The stump is slightly positioned to the left allowing a clear view of the sunset in the background!

Thanks for the comments. An astute observation as I did move about to get the stump but also a nice part of the sunset.

I bought the Sigma 10-20mm as I have a Canon 10D. I followed the reviews for awhile and taking into consideration price and image quality it seemed to be a good bet. I haven't been disappointed. I do not intend to be moving to a full size processor for some time to come so I am not concerned about future non-compatability. The lens is solid and distortion if any can be easily controlled by the angle of the shot. What I really like is the range and the new creative options it now gives me. Can't wait for summer. You will note in the photo there is still ice in the cove.

Boily:
Yes I shoot everything in raw format now (except for flash photos). I do conversions with the free version of Raw shooter esentials 2006. Much better than the software I got with the camera. Further post production is done mostly with Paintshop Pro.
