love the 10-22. just to lighten up the mood, here is a wave that hasn't crashed yet lol. taken with the 10-22 REAL close. no underwater housing. camera moving with the wave firing away at 6fps. I got drenched but the camera didn't
Just wonder why do you have so much magenta in the left upper corner, is that color fringe or famous red noise, which may be the case because the same thing you can see on the lower right in the dark parts of the water with no contrast.
In case if this was produced by the 10-22 lens, you probably have a bad copy.
well, now you have me doubting that this was in fact the 10-22; the no contrast in the water could be flare, and this could have been the 17-55, although the color fringing at the top of the wave is characteristic 10-22.
as for the magenta itself, I suspect that is an artifact of heavy pp; probably pushed the red sat slider too far. the colors were pretty wacked in post, so that the wave didn't appear too green and poluted
Depth of field seems bit to shallow to, you know, I have taped the focusing ring on that lens and using as fixed focus most of the time!
It has enough depth for regular landscaping work even at f5.6, the only problem is when I have to, very rarely zoom in, it needs small correction to the focus.
yes, I had the CP on, and now I think this was taken with the 17-55. my apologies for drifting the thread here. also -- part of the reason the foreground is not sharp is due to motion blur -- the camera was held at about a foot from the water surface in front of the wave, without me looking through the viewfinder, and moving rapidly in many vectors to pace the incoming wave. at the last moment I stuck the camera into the air and took the wave, which was probably only 3 feet high, I would say. I think the lack of contrast is partially due to lens flare, and the magenta cast is partially because red has been pushed to bring out the sand, which was only a few inches below the water surface.
I just put this photo up for fun. please continue with the OP's inquiry, and discuss the other related shots
