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

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

Excellent! I love the lens-flare on this one. At what aperture was this taken?
I've got a 14mm Rokinon (Samyang) f/2.8 in hand right now for review purposes. I'm having fun with it; 14mm is VERY wide on FF. Here's one taken yesterday:
?? Dustin, this image is quite different from your usual, I find the colors quite oversaturated, unpleasingly so. An interesting effect if you were trying for it....but not if you weren't. Mayhaps a resizing issue. It also looks like you had to push things in less than ideal light. I DO like the composition and subject. That's a lens I really want to like on FF. Cheers!
Im tryna find a prime lens for my 7D to walk the streets with. Im currently using my 5DMKIII with the 50mm 1.4 and i love it. Which lens out of the 2 would match the quality and look of that FF combo??
Any thought or suggestions would be great.. Thanks
Here's another I took yesterday. My favorite aspect using UWA is the ability to emphasize foregrounds.
It is, and that's the proper way to use an UWA im many cases, imho. What did you do with the colors???
I've got a copy of the 14mm Rokinon in hand for a review right now, so I'll be posting some images. That wide a lens makes for some very creative options!
Thanks for the inspirational photo Dustin! No autumn colors here, yet - but I will be sure to whip out the 14 mm when the time is right! Last year I took some great shots with my 20 mm Siggy so let's see what I can do with the 14mm Samyang
