These three are good especially the first one however I wish it were bigger for me to see it better . I clicked the link but it's not very big for me . That second one , what is making that twisted sparkling twirl ? That very last one(falling) you should make a 16"x20" for showing . Is it winter time for you now ?

Lighting steel wool on fire and spinning it on a string/rope causes it. Gotta be careful though, I cringe whenever I see someone doing this effect in a very dry place with lots of dry brush/vegetation:

I realize that maybe a 35mm is too narrow and I would have been better off with something wider, but my 24-105mm is a f/4. Any tips?

The best tip I can give you is: just take it outside and shoot ;)
Believe me, I follow that advice myself!

First time using my 14mm lens, pretty happy with the results. This was taken a few weeks ago up on Ortega Highway in Orange County, CA.

Please forgive me for being a little off topic. I am looking to get a different lens for astrophotography and landscape shooting. I currently have a Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 for my 7DmkII, but I find myself wanting to zoom in closer many times than the 16mm affords when shooting landscapes. Do any of you have experience with the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 or the Tokina 14-20mm f/2 for astrophotography (not sure this tight enough either)? Or should I continue to save up and just get a Canon 16-35 f/2.8L. I have not seen many reviews on these first two in reference to astrophotography. I am wanting to use the lens for both astrophotography and landscapes on a trip to Golden Colorado area. Thanks for helping

I'm not sure about the coma or distortion of the Sigma, but a constant f1.8 aperture through the entire zoom is almost certainly going to yield significantly better results than the other two lenses. The Sigma at f1.8 and 35mm collects almost 2.5 times as much light as the Canon, so you'd need a 25 second exposure with the Canon to get a similar result as a 10 second exposure with the Sigma.

I don't see why'd you get the Tokina 14-20mm if you already have the 11-16mm, your not getting that much more reach, but the wider aperture is nice. If you got rid of the 11-16mm and got the 14-20mm that'd be the way to go.

Not knowing anything about the coma or glass quality of any of the lenses, I'd recommend the Sigma based on price and the aperture.

I'm from Denver and while there is plenty of landscape options, the Astro is better left for out of town. about 90 min east of denver around Last Chance CO has dark skies. If you want to shoot in the astro in the mountains, you are going to want to be an hour away from any ski resort areas.

What are you trying to shoot? 14-35 range on crop seems to be in the not useful for much range. It seems too tight to do Milky way and too wide for anything deep sky.


Canon 7D/350D, Σ17-50/2.8 OS, 18-55IS, 24-105/4 L IS, Σ30/1.4 EX, 50/1.8, C50/1.4, 55-250IS, 60/2.8, 70-200/4 L IS, 85/1.8, 100/2.8 IS L, 135/2 L 580EX II, 430EX II * 2, 270EX II.
