    Issue with Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 OS

    Ahh! I did contact Sigma directly and explained the problem but the guy said there's no reason for it not to work and for me to contact my dealer instead. At least if it happens again I'd have some idea now :)

    Issue with Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 OS

    I recently purchased the Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX DG OS HSM lens for my Nikon D5000 from Amazon UK. As soon as I got it out of the box, I took it into the garden to test it out. I quickly discovered that the focussing seemed to be awry. Although pictures appeared to be in focus through the...

    Daily Vicktrr's 365 challenge

    After my first 365 challenge attempt lead to the incredibly frustrating result of 364 photos (I realised I'd missed a day about half an hour into the next day :gag:) I've decided to try again and i'm determined to complete it this time! I'm posting on Tumblr because I don't want to clog up my...

    Quorn Hunt Boxing Day 2011

    So number 3 is perfectly fine even though there's only half a horse, and yet number 5 is bin-friendly because there are no ears... I'm sorry, I honestly would rather have #5 printed and framed on my wall :lol: Haha, each to their own I guess - I suppose composition can be incredibly subjective...

    Boxing Day Hunt Meet

    #5 is definitely my favourite :) The effect in #1 is interesting - selective HDR - it works, although personally I'd make the HDR on the horses a little less intense, it looks a bit like you photoshopped them in, hehe :)

    equine cross country photos

    I agree about the backgrounds - I'm sure from another angle you might have got less 'clutter'? By early he means the horses back feet are still on the ground - a little later and the whole horse would have been suspended with more of a shape over the jump. They're nice sharp pictures, but...

    Light Ghosting!

    Thanks guys, your comments are appreciated :) These would look awesome in a cemetery, that's something to think about! We were using a single flash from an off camera hot-shoe flash hence the intensity, but yeah, I think that's something we could change next time. And I hate that red...

    Burghley Cross Country

    I literally JUST added Nico Morgan as a contact on Flickr after months of admiring his work :lol: Co-incidence! And yes, I heard that terrible story too, so sad :( And my later lake shots are taken slightly more to the right so don't have that annoying pole in, just happened that the first...

    I officially finished My 365 Challenge yesterday! I started on the 1st September 2010 and thought it would make a nice record of my first year of University. I'm so pleased I did it and even though I've only got 364 pictures (gutted to have missed Day 251) I feel all accomplished :D...

    Messing with HDR

    Personally, I prefer the first one compositionally. The second looks a little over-sharp although I really like the top half :)

    If it's worth doing, it's worth over doing.....

    These are brilliant! I love the POV in all three! The goats have the best expression though :D
