Winter at the marsh

New to the forum and Sigma. But the money I saved up to replace my Canon G5 went to a new SD14.
I new pocket camera will have to wait after seeing what I'm getting from the 14 a DP1 will most likely be in my future 8^)
Still getting used to the camera and SPP. It can be a real challenge on my Mac. I have gotten used to doing 90% of what I need in Aperture with no RAW support for Sigma it's a pain.
Here are a few of my early shots. C&C welcome
All taken with the 18-50 2,6 EX

Some times I found the 18 after crop to tight

Hi,

The first one, with the bare birches, these are a fav of mine in the winter. They seem to have such a dramatic silhouette against a blue sky.

I tend to find the same with the crop on some of my shots, I have 18-200, and even at 18 after a crop it is not what I had hoped for. So I went to a 17-35 hoping it would be better. Have not had a chance to use it outside yet.

All three have nice subject matter and color / composition. : )

Nice landscapes indeed containing beautiful colours!

I like it! :)

See you with nice pictures

Klaus

Klaus,
Thank you. You have some very nice macro shots with lenses not normally thought of as macro lenses.
I'm looking forward to seeing how well the 18-50 does. I'm used to working with 1:1 lenses.

Robert,
Thanks, I do love the colors that are rendered by the SD14. I did not realize the difference between 1.5 and 1.7 till I started shooting 27 vs 31 does not sound like a lot but it is when shooting, 27 was usually OK on my Nikons

Regardless of the width from the focal length, these are all VERY crisp, VERY beautifully toned images. Way to go!
