Long exposure landscape combined with environmental portrait looks really cool.

Travis or Eddie needs to try something like this. I suppose the technique (in this case) relies on the fact that the couple is reclining against a static subject (normal exposure) that can easily be composited with the LE exposure. Anyway, I thought this was pretty creative. :)

[BTW: What's that guy doing with Jason Bourne's wife? :p]

The background looks good....the WA distortion of the subjects' legs and the unflattering pose bugs the hell out of me. You definitely need to make sure you don't have appendages leaning towards the edges of the frame when you shoot people with UWA lenses.

David, I can see that landscape photogs might like this but the posing for portrait is pretty poor IMHO. Closest to the camera is the sole of one of her boots and the other leg looks like it's disjointed. The lower half of her body is far too pronounced because of the wide-angle perspective. Does she only have one arm? The couple look like at any moment they might fall backwards and disappear! And don't let me mention the way his left hand is grabbing her belly.... I could go on and on. Just my view (pun intended).

Ah, I hadn't seen this when I wrote my critique! Touche.

I like the concept, not too keen on the execution for the reasons mentioned above. I do like it when landscape and portrait combine, I saw amazing wedding photos once and the photographer had lit them in front of an amazing Astro scene

Playing around with ideas here and since I'm liking my voigt 15 a lot more than expected do you guys think 12mm is too close to 15mm to own both? I think the cv10 is a bit extreme for me

I think you and Carlo are tripped up by the posing and lens choice. I posted the link not because it's an amazing portrait, but because of the cleverness of the technical concept and execution of a LE portrait composite.

I hadn't seen this type of LE composite before, so it was unfortunately my only example to share. Admittedly, I'm not a portrait guy and don't love portraits enough to even care about posing and lens choices...will just keep any portrait thoughts to myself in the future.

You need the 12mm (and I need the 15mm :) ) and I agree that 10mm is extreme.

I would rather own 10 + 15 or simply 12 to split the difference.

Either way, 12 is quite a bit wider than 15, and 10 quite a bit wider than 12. I'm on the opposite boat, 15 vs 18 vs 21 to fill the gap :-P

Or just let the gap exist and continue with simplicity....

Did not mean to sound condescending so sorry if it came out that way.

Different types of photographer's have an eye for different things....and we all look at photos differently. Sort of like how I get called for tilted verticals and what not because I don't intuitively have an eye for it (I wish I did!)

As a portrait guy, the distortion becomes too much of a distraction from what really is a great concept. Environmental portraits in general are really challenging because you're basically taking a portrait and a landscape simultaneously, and if either part isn't executed well, the image falls apart.

Thanks David / Charlie. Not going to rush into anything as I've only taken a handful of images with the cv15 so far and haven't even used the 100-300 so need to get some time in with those first before I think of adding anything

I like having the CV12 and the B18, I can't really see wanting anything in between those two, and 10mm is just too wide for me...and I love UWA...

This has nothing to do with Sony cameras other than that is what I use. This is a "Lower Thirds" I created to place at the beginning of any videos I create in the future. I used the free program "Hitfilm 4 Express" to create it on a green screen. That way, I can place it above my video and key out the green screen to show the video below.

I just used the still image from my website background as the "video" for this example.
