I continue to take a shot each day.

I'd love to be able to shoot some architecture, especially at night, this lens would be a shoe-in!


Just look at the nice sunbursts it can do.  (you might need to look at the full size shot on flickr)

A very late evening shot, in dim light at a very narrow aperture, a torture test for the D600 sensor, and the Sigma's focusing ability.

I missed shooting on Nov. 15, so I took a shot on the 16th, and warped back in time just enough to post this one.

There might be a little PP going on with this shot.

Thanks banjogal.  I sometimes fall behind due to work (and pleasure).  Anyone can start the daily threads.

Having a flat spot, I hope my shots get better.

When all else fails, take a photo of a pet, or child, or prized possession.

To all who promised to join in, see, it's not that hard to participate?

Come on in everyone, post your shots!


Sigma 35/1.4 does macro?

Sort of, but it's sharp enough to get away with it.  It really nails the focus too.  The butterfly is about 1/2 inch long.

I think it is an Orange Skipper.

And now for something completely different.

Very low light, my D600 struggled to focus, had to use manual focus adjustment.  I missed the focus too, but judicious downsizing took care of noise, and some of the softness.  I quite like the result (but I'm biased).

The challenge is meant to help each photographer get to know a lens, in all situations from architecture to street, good and bad light, and learn how to "see" a good shot.

One day you're going to get caught out, and may even miss a shot.  

There's still time to join in.


Wired has joined me, his theme is bridges.

Me, I just want to "see" everything in the world around me.


Here's the entrance to a Japanese garden in downtown Adelaide.

Good luck to everyone.

Less than a week to go now, can I have a show of hands, who is still interested in participating?
