June 2 2010


Here’s another random picture as I wait on the Sony NEX stuff to review, and some more prime comps with the Sony 24-70mm.

The image below was taken with the Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 @35mm, F/32 at ISO 100.  I used F/32 to slow the shutter speed (1/15s) and smooth out the waterfall.  I forgot my ND filter, so I had no choice.  The original image actually looks pretty good, even at 100%, and is probably as sharp as a typical fixed lens camera shot.  This image was tweaked with some minor highlight and shadow adjustments, and straightened.
This watery wonderland is the Sabino Canyon Dam, and is only about a thirty minute drive from downtown Tucson, AZ.   The Dam used to support a good sized lake for fishing (where the trees are), but now it has long silted in, and is almost dry during the hottest and driest part of the year.
