Default D7000+Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 lens

Saw the forecast last night for the weather this morning and decided to call a friend, go out and shoot some early morning landscape/seascape shots.
Hard to believe that the temp was 48degrees when I got up this morning at 5:00am. Temps like that in Cape Cod are a rarity in December.

Took along the D7000 with a Tokina 11-16mm 2.8 lens. The point was to shoot low light and sunrise shots. These are a few of the first image taken:

This is actually a photo merge of 3 shots taken. The camera was set up on a Manfrotto tripod with a #393 gimbal head. the 3 images were processed using CS5 and photo merge:



next 2 shots are single frame images. Post processing done in ACR.

If you can't tell by now, I just love to get up and out early in the morning

Very nice zig. Love the soft colours you have captured.
I find the 11-16 produces the look of a watercolour painting - don't know why.

Hi,

Thanks for your comment and you're observation regarding the 11-16mm lens.
I've only had mine a relatively short time, so I can't really positively confirm your assessment of the results.

But, to your point, most of the images taken this morning were from early gray light to sunup and then shortly thereafter. And, I have to agree with you, the early morning light images do indeed have a bit of a watercolor affect.

Zig

Hi Zig,

This is an example of what I mean by the watercolour effect. Taken with hubby's D90 + 11-16 lens. No pp done.
Cheers

Fantastic... you are having fun with your new system.

My favorite is the second shot.
