One of my good photography friends, Valerio, highly recommended that I get this new lens – the Sigma 10-20mm. We spent the weekend together in Napoli and took a bunch of pictures together…we put that set here on Flickr. Here is one of the first shots I have taken with the new lens from Chicago last night; I think this lens is amazing. I look forward to doing some landscapes with it as well. The second picture is one of my favorites with that lens from Valerio… who is one of the most popular photographers on Flickr… here are some of his top shots.
This was taken with nine exposures on a late summer evening in Chicago. The light made the lake have sort of a Caribbean blue color. It was one of my few trips there where I did not absolutely freeze to death or get shredded by ice crystals in monsoon-strength winds.
