Some good shots so far. Seeing some of the shots so far in this challenge reminds me of how much more I need to shoot to become better.

I'm still going, but I am a bit behind on processing, so the 28mm shots and the first part of 35mm won't get posted until after I'm back from Canada...

So, I have 3 28mm lenses (not a single 24mm.... ).
Been having fun with all three, this focal lenght suits me?

Gregja CNRedAgain BonJ & WaldoPosth; your thumbnail profile just figure out great together.

Great work all around though, Keep it up

Thanks clk20 - I cannot claim credit for the colours, just praise the unknown architect who had the optimism to choose orange for those few days of blue sky we laughingly call summer over here.

very, veeery late to the party! -understatement!-
and hopefully still welcome? ??

at 1st I couldn't find the 24 , stored it away because it wasn't functioning like it should/-used to on Minolta.
MF helped a lot, but not all the time. malfunctioning again at times and jumping out of MF all the time. at times.
been busy since. sorting out pics for instance, figuring out what was shot with the appropriate lens. shot a lot with several lenses. but nothing special.

great challenge so far!!! a pleasure to watch!

As with most challenges I'll comment some on the outtakes. Usually there are a lot of gems in there as well

Page 1

mariuszlo, pity about the vignette, because the rest seems to be a happy boatride on a nice day
Dopol, nice to put these very different technologies in one picture, the wide angle/close perspective works well with the subject
Macca, very nice, especially #4. I would like to find a place like that close to here, plenty of opportunity as you show.
Howard_S, I really like the New Physics mono, great B&W conversion and a nice composition and contrast between modern architecture, old architecture and natural textures.
Bob J, When you look quickly your chin looks like a hedgehog [no offence]. The texture in the second comes out nicely.
Fred_S, I think #2 (against the light) is really the best of the bunch and could easily have gone in the main thread.
pdeley, nice play of lines and textures in 2a, also good (evening?) light. I like the bokeh of 2c.
Howard_S, good light on the church, brings out the colours and textures of the stones very well.
Macca, gorgious landscape, but looking at the last the restauration doesn't seem to go fast.


Page 2

Dopol, the second looks "almost real"
mariuszlo, maybe no fireworks but the airplane light trail is a nice touch
Howard_S, nice piece of relevant art in that environment
Dopol, indeed amazing sharpness, who needs a real 90 or 100 mm macro
Howard_S, the lens might be technically crippled, but still produces nice images with maybe just a tad too much vignette
Snegren, nice bubbly backgrounds, or should I say frothy?
Bob J, the way you placed the tram track and the foot bridge is almost like a diptich. I also like the Frankfort crane a lot.
Robbie, nice piece of architecture and well captured. Also the play of lines in the second works well.
Fred_S, The colour version of the old houses has some appeal as well, but the B&W shines, so for my taste you made the right choice
Bob J, the arselnal metal men almost looks like an IR capture
Robbie, great play with geometric shapes, the first might even look better if you crop some from the right (but leave top/bottom as is)


Page 3

waldo_posth, your footbridge is an amazing couple with my last photo of the post above. Another (unintended) diptich
Dopol, I think the B&W exhibition is the absolute top of this series   , the last need a little crop or clone on the top left due to the perspective correction
mikey2000, I've never seen such lines in the sky, is that an English phenomena?
Robbie, what a nice place, especially thge untitled thistles in the first have a nice "flow"
Macca, nice composition but WB seems a bit cool (and you have a dust bunny on your sensor)
Howard_S, the first is very mysterious, well seen. The second also has a special mood.
Bob J, what a car and nicely captured and converted to B&W. Is that the one from your brother in law?
mariuszlo, well seen shadows!
Fred_S, I like the unconventional way you used your car window to frame the subject in the first!
Howard_S, I also like the bubbles a lot and really can't see much wrong with the focus (at this size)
Dopol, reminds me of the kitchen shelf in my grandmother's home, very similar tins on there as well.
Robbie, nice how the path leads to the eye to the walkers.


More to come as the outtakes fill up further
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Do you have a picture of the lens? It seems the original superwide was a manual focus lens introduced in 1981 and it was superseded by the manual focus superwide II in 1986. I do not know where the 1998 release year comes from in out lensdatabase, but that seems wrong as the styling seems more late eighties, early nineties, not late nineties. Also, why would they release the discontinued version in AF when they could release the newer version?

This is my Minolta SR-mount (MD) Sigma 24/2.8:

Thanks for picking up this task again Pieter!

Bob_J made a similar comment on my #2. It seems I picked the wrong one to please the big audience in the main tread

That was how I saw this scene in the first place and decided to shoot one to capture that. The 29mm allowed for that conveniently.
