Half Dome from around/below North Dome? Been many years for me though. I've actually never approached from that low in front like that so not sure how that ridge to the image left looks from that perspective.

EDIT: If that's her, that's a pretty interesting perspective by the way.

Correct, from Mirror Lake which is dry in the summer. When the pool is full a mirror reflection of Half Dome can be obtained.

I used this lens for a paid industrial shoot that without it, would of had me struggling. It already paid for itself with two images from that day.

ISO 6400, f/2.8 to get the shutter speeds required (moving parts), not enough space to use the 70-200, etc... Lens performs really well, I enjoy it! Great to have with a 24-105 when you need the f/2.8 aperture with a versatile focal length (40mm not wide or long, just right on FF).

Thanks. None are HDR but the first is tone mapped in Photomatix. The other two have been through Topaz Adjust and Lightroom.

Nice clarity and definition, but I think there's something overdone, well to my tastes anyway. The trees look like they are glowing.

Thanks and i agree about the trees (or at least the green and yellow).
I did these on a monitor that was badly calibrated. I thought they looked ok until i got in to work and fired up my PC.
With the first shot i was intending to get an almost illustration/painting look and i think that worked, or at least i got as far as i could without going in to PS, but yes, the other two are a bit heavy looking.

Yes I suppose it does look like a painting! The framing is very nice.

Great hike though. :)

Lens problem

There's an issue with this lens, obviously.

To be fair... it's not a showstopper issue and they are stating it will be fixed via firmware.

Sure. Just thought someone may run into this issue, and then look for what to do with it.
