Default One more shot from the Sigma DP2

Here's 70 percent of the full image, followed by a 100 percent crop.

This image was shot from the Williamsburgh Bridge, while I was driving (Bad Dave, bad Dave)....

This morning I took this lousy shot. Dark, cloudy day, slow speed shot.

But just before I deleted it, I figured it would make a great example of how this little camera resolves detail...

So here's the full frame shot, followed by the 100 percent crop.

Am I nuts, or is that not _outstanding_ for a shot taken from a moving car? (NB: I am a raw beginner w. photography.)

No, no, I was standing around waiting for something interesting to happen, and simply took this shot, which is now long deleted, except I thought it would be a decent example of the resolving power of the Sigma. The focal lenght equivalent of the Sigma is 41mm, certainly not "wide angle," but not that bad. Sigma does sell a wide angle (as well as telephoto) adapters, but I have no idea how good they are.

Here's another example of the resolving power of this machine. The first image is about three quarters of the frame, the second is a 100 percent crop. It's a war memorial to those on my block who fought in WWII.
