Lambton Qy - 交差点

Wellington, New Zealand

Nikon D200
Sigma EX 10-20 F4-5.6 DC HSM @ 10mm
F8, 1/125, ISO-100 

I did not correct strong distortion and did not remove all the lens flare.  Some may find the distortion as a irritation, but I found thus give some idea of large scale object around the big city.


  1. This is one of my favourite corner. I usually go for sculptures there, but this time I went for whole scene because Sigma was attached on my camera.
    It was bit tricky because of the positioning of SUB. I used my hand for extra blocking of unwanted right but that was not enough to remove flair. I might needed to use my cap instead.

    I'm start posting back stage comment ( if any) to face book page from next one.

  2. You know how partial I am about this city, and I must say that I truly enjoyed your Wellington black and whites. You are putting your wide angle to a very good use!

  3. Thanks, Lachezar.
    I just recently got this one. It's fun to use in the city as well as landscape. I try to capture the feel of surrounds. Otherwise, I always need something in very near me to include in foreground. Empty space is good in some case too, bust something or someone would help a lot to fill the space.
    An interesting thing is people wait until I put down the camera or hear the shutter sound where they think they are out of the frame, but they are all in the frame already. Sometime, I keep shooting but I try not to take the photo as they are showing gesture that they do not want in my pic. But, it usually give me a good/interesting composition, though.

  4. Good point, Pete. One day, I woukld like to experiment with wide angle on tripod with ND filters and very slow shutter to capture a movement of a traffic. Wonder how many stopped at the edge of the frame, looks like waiting to the photo shoot is finished.
