Thought I'd give this an airing in the gallery. If you aren't a user of the forums, then you may have missed the 365 project that I'm doing for Ephotozine and Tamron, where I'm giving an 18-270mm superzoom travel lens a grilling.
evolving steadily now. It's not so much a review of what the lens can and can't do now - because I think I've covered it most of that now - as it is a guide to getting the best results out of modest equipment.
This was created without image degrading optical filters. I just wave my arms like a prat in front of the lens, covering the bright parts of the image to give the shadows more time to build. It's something I've been calling sensor dodging. It's like HDR, except that it comes out of the camera looking almost exactly like this, with just a bit of colour correction needed in most cases. Good fun.
