Here's another Rokinon example:

Ah ! The Rokinon has made your Ford look like an Aston Martin. It must be a really good lens !

But why is the steering wheel on the wrong side ?


Yes, I think Ford may have "borrowed" some the design elements from its time of ownership of Aston.

Nice dappled light

Here's a change of pace.  My old Helios does flare pretty badly.  It loses contrast like mad.  But like a lot of other things, it does it in a very artistic way.  I find I get memorable images even when it shows its defects.

Great image - the flare causing the steam to break up is a really interesting effect. The overall softness works very well with the tone. Nice.

Thanks.  The effect was pretty unique; I've not seen it in many other pics before.

I'm pretty sure I stopped down to f/11 to enhance the sunstar.  That is my personal favorite aperture on most of my lenses for achieving the effect.  The arms on the sunstar become more defined.

Thanks, I'll try to keep that in mind. Still, I'll have to be patient; when I cycled home from work today I looked at the trees, and they're all still green! Well, I can wait because I don't particularly like winter ;)

I'm in no rush for winter to arrive either!  I get burned out in shooting what is essentially monochrome!

I Rise Before Dawn by Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott, on Flickr


Interesting picture Dustin, pleasing effect, very polished. I always find portrait used for landscapes quite challenging but this works well !


Thank you.  I find using a UWA lens this that my eye most naturally wants to shoot vertical compositions with it.  At 14mm you can really emphasize a foreground, and this lens is pretty amazingly sharp throughout the frame.  You can't see it at this magnification, but you can zoom in anywhere and the detail is there.

Excellent! I love the lens-flare on this one. At what aperture was this taken?
