    Garry??? - I thought it was a sheepdog! :-)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Kane :) Almost impressionistic.
    Hahaha, I'm sure he'll love that comparison.

    That's what I was going to say... almost looks like a painting. What's with the funny OOF bits? Was that PP or an effect of the lens?
  • David de Groot said:
    Artefact of the Sigma 10-20 at f/5 with close focus. Funnily enough, the Mrs also thought Garry was a dog.

    Where's all the reptile and amphibian shots? :)
    Cool shot.
  • David de Groot said:
    They're coming ;-) Although it's only a couple of Golden Skinks. No snakes or dragons I'm afraid.

    David have you had any shots using the Sigma 10 20 accepted by Stock agencies at all?
  • David de Groot said:
    Two so far Jeff.
    This one of the Story Bridge and this one of Shorncliffe Pier.
  • FrAcTuReD...fOtOs said:
    I think this is their best lens from what I gather.
  • David de Groot said:
    I've certainly been mostly happy with it. The Sigma 105 and 150 macros are also quite good (but then I've yet to see a bad true macro lens from anyone).
