Oh wow, thanks for sharing! Ok cool I think I'm getting a better idea of how I could try for this kind of shot. I guess it's easier to pull detail out of the shadows than it is from the highlights.. So underexpose slightly to get all the highlights in and bring it back up in post.

I'm guessing you managed to get the computer sorted then?

Yeah, the main trick to getting this shot was just being there. I've lived in Florida most of my life so am pretty familiar with the weather patterns. The west coast where this was taken is famous for it's sunsets. I live on the east coast where we get the sunrises.

Sea breezes come off the Atlantic and off the Gulf of Mexico and collide in the middle creating spectacular thunderstorms. Sometimes they happen in the center of the state, sometimes in the east and at other times in the west. The weather forecast for that period favored the west coast so we decided to head over there and book a room for a couple of days. Though daytime temperatures reached an unbearable 50,000 degrees f, we toughed it out and were rewarded in the end.

All is fine with my computer now, thank you. Turned out, in the end, to be an overheating power supply. I'm a retired computer tech, so was no big deal. More fun for me than headache.

This lens is absolutely fantastic. I've been having so much fun. I got some stars that I've never been able to get before. This shot is with a 6D at ISO 800, f/2, and 8s exposure. These are the stars over the glow of New Orleans from the northshore of Lake Ponchartrain. The car lights are from vehicles on the Causeway.

Mine is not autofocus on anything within a few feet of the MFD. Anyone else have that issue? Focusing farther than 6' feet from the lens is OK, but on nearer subjects the lens just sits there with the AF whirring-but-not moving? I suppose I need to send it in to Sigma for servicing.

I don't suppose the USB dock would help would it?

You have something wrong and the dock won't help. The dock can tweak focus millimeters this way and that at various distances, but you're not even locking in incorrectly. Send it in.
