Snow Photos From today (12/09)

Got a new lens a week ago and these are the very first photos i have taken with it. High noon shots so excuse the ify lighting.



[img width=576 height=768]http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k166/Colombia532/Snow%202008/IMG_7908.jpg[/img]











Tomorrow i am going to do a sharpness test on the lens, i am not sure its hitting the right marks. Could be the fact i was freezing, but to me they don't seem as sharp as the should be.

Comments and Criticism are welcome. Thanks!

Re: Snow Photos From today (12/09)

Update:

Stayed up almost all night writing another paper, so i figured why not stay up and catch the sunrise. Taken just a few minutes ago. And sadly i think i am convinced this lens is not as sharp as it should be . Aside from the noise in the image from the high ISO, no tripod, its still not sharp *sigh*

Can you give us some details like camera model, lens, iso speed, shutter speed, and filters?

At that size they look fine, so I assume you mean they aren't sharp at full size?

Canon 350D (XT), Sigma 17-70 f/2.8

The first batch were all taken at ISO 100 various shutter speeds and f-stops. The sunrise one was ISO 800, can't recall the shutter speed and i think it was at f/4.5ish. Oh filter wise, don't laugh... a cheap-o sunpack 72mm UV. The filter will be gone soon, replacing it with a B&W CP or a Hoya UV, or both lol. I got the filter because it only cost me $6 at work (Best Buy). It was a quick fix to protect my new lens since i had no time to pick up the "real" one.

And yeah. At full size they are eh. PB interwebz status makes them look ok.

Oh its very real. If i were to ever actually wake up at a decent time i could catch even better sunrises.

Snow is great the day it falls, but after that it turns everything into either a sheet of ice, or a brown mushy mess of crap. Then its not so nice.. lol
