Frosty Morning

By Moey  
I've just bought some Lee Filters and wanted to try them out, so I thought this morning was the perfect opportunity with the broken clouds and peeps of blue skies. I visited the small village of Walesby, a place i'd accidentally visited before whilst passing by and had decided back then that it would be worth a revisit with more time. Another plus side was that there was a tea room where I could grab a nice cuppa afterwards... ... So off I went, around 9.00am this morning... after a good walk, i came upon this scene. There was no blue in the sky or any distinct sunlight whilst I was setting up, but then the light broke through for a few minutes and I managed to capture this. I used a Sigma 10-20mm with a 0.9 Lee Grad to balance the sky and ground, fitted onto a wide angle adaptor. I was quite pleased with my first attempt with filters and any comments good or bad would be most welcome...

The result speaks for itself. I'm thinking of buying an ultra wide angle lens. What's your opinion of the Sigma?

An excellent composition and the filter brings out the sky colour nicely.

Thanks for your comments guys.... ... Lynne, i've had the Sigma for quite a while now, most of the HDR shots in my portfolio are taken with this lens... ... i really like it, but some people don't like it at the wide end due to the distortion on architecture or subjects which are close to the edge of the image if that makes sense... ... but i tend to use it quite a lot..... i recently bought the 17-55mm 2.8 Nikon lens which is a cracker... ... but i have to have the sigma in the bag when i'm going out... ... to give you an idea of the lens, feel free to browse my portfolio on here... ...

Thanks again!
