Great angle and excellent processing. Any specific thing you did to get that look?

Well spotted Jamooche it's my lucky shot. In LR I've edited my first picture of the pack, lowering highlights and raising shadows, adding a bit of contrast and saturation then copied the setting and pasted it on all my other pictures as a base. When I reached that photo, I was like wooooooh, it's perfect, dont touch it anymore!

The sky was cloudy and there's some light reflection probably coming from a white car in front, it really make a nice effect.

A big batch, sorry!!

To my dismay I noticed only at home that I've left the shutter speed to 1/500 for all my nigh shots. This one is terribly noisy. That's a stupid mistake to do.

Hey Earwax, that 6d and siggy 35 is hot! Your shots are awesome, could be the gear, your work in post or just your eye for the shot, but I can't take my eyes off them.

Thanks guys! The Sigma sure make things easy. I've used the 135L a lot too but I got a lot less keepers out of it. This 35mm f1.4 is by far my best tool.

Yea, Earwax, you're making it reaaaallllly hard for me to keep saving for the 6D kit, I'm very tempted to go pick up the body this weekend after those shots and start saving for this lens. What ISO did you have your camera limited too? I can't believe those were at 1/500sec!

Thanks for the info. Simple edits, so you definitely captured some amazing lighting.

So, I'm seeing amazing pics...but is this lens worth 3x more than a 50mm 1.4 lens? What are the improvements over the already well regarded canon/sigma 50mm 1.4?

with 35mm you get MORE DOF than 50mm 1.4. Is this lens that good that it's worth not having to take a few steps back with a 50mm? Or is there no distortion even at minimum focusing distance of less than 1 foot?

I really want to know..not trying to bash the price...

Thanks guys for all the nice comments. Really appreciated. I got to go out of my home more often!!

but is this lens worth 3x more than a 50mm 1.4 lens?

The Canon 35L is 1400$, the Sigma is a bargain if you compare. But as far as quality go, I'd say they are in different class. The 50mm f1.4 is not so usable wide open. It's sharp at f2. You can get keepers at f1.4 but the S35 is just stellar wide open. As for the FC, well, even if you step back with the 50mm, the perspective is not the same. They are different tools.

I need a 50mm though... When Sigma is going to release the 50mm Art, I'm going to jump on it.

You're comparing two different focal lengths. Taking a few steps back with a 50mm isn't the same as shooting with a 35. A better comparison would be to ask how it compares with the Sigma 30mm or Canon 35 f/2 lenses.

oh I see, thanks. I didn't realize the perspective wouldn't be the same. It'd be pretty much the same I think...not that much compression on the 50mm lens.

I will probably wait a while and look for a used one a few years from now :) Although, having a 35mm + 85mm probably makes more sense than my current 50mm + 85mm..

I just looked at what aperture you were using for your shots.. my lawd, they are super sharp at 1.4 -__-

I may be wrong, but it's not the same b/c the 50mm will have slightly more compression right? Or is it the fact that the 35mm has more distortion (although I've read it has none)...

If you mean perspective distortion, that's dependent on your distance from the subject, not on the lens. If you mean optical distortion, then both lenses are well controlled.
