No, the Sigma 10-20mm is quite good, (and even at 10mm). Better than some Canon zooms I've had. Smile

Has to be the b/w version for me; a confusion of strong diagonal, vertical and horizontal lines then the lone figure making sense out of the confusion. Hope that makes some sense, either way like this image a lot.

I can't decide between them. B&W is so bleak, colour is distinctly lacking in the mellow warmth that you might expect with that golden glow. Powerful either way.

No. 1 is a powerful Mono image which I prefer to No. 2

My favourite lens too, and perfect for shots like this Smile Like the lines and angles here, Chris, and think the mono just wins it for me Wink

Yes mono for me. It looks much more sinister and mysterious.

Very powerful and very clever images-- I think V1 gets it for me, but both are great.
