    Vote Ron Paul???

    While working on my large format portfolio project, State Route 94, I came across this little gem:

Size:  383.9 KB
    A900 w/Sigma 28-90 @ 75mm, f/22, 1/50th, ISO 400, cropped and converted to B&W

    Note the camoflauge netting on top of the roof!!!

    But that guy has to compete with someone else in a neighboring community:

    A900 w/Sigma 28-80 @ 50mm, f/11, 1/80th, ISO 100

    This is but one of many such dressed statutes.

    Frank, the tammie is only good stopped down to f16 absolute tops, even then you should try and avoid stopping down past f11 if possible. By f22 you've lost around 40% of your sharpness. With the 5.6 shot, I would have preferred the focus on the top of the pencil as that's where the eye is drawn to.

    Oh, look... the holidays are back!

    So, the snow falls and December arrives... no, in Chicago it was the vice-versa. Mid-December snow, this year. Not much... just reminder of what's in store.

    Of course, the holidays come roaring in and demand we respond... to stave off the grim solace of the coldest season of the year. We fight this distressing period with LIGHT! To that end, I set up my Christmas tree, still sans all the beautiful ornaments... but chuck full of lights and tackled it, this time, with the SIGMA 20mm f/1.8 DG EX RF and my newer SIGMA 85mm f/1.4 DG EX HSM lens, just to see what kind of bokeh I could achieve contrast the two of them. I HDR'd them a bit... just to pop some of the color, and layered in the bokeh, but you can kind of see the specific differences.

    Yes, you might try this at home! LOL

    Season's Greetings, folks!

    EDIT: Finished adding the ornamentation...
