Humber Bridge 4

Standing about 15 feet from the bottom of the tower looking upward, again with the lens set at 12mm showing the distortion that is so evident with very wide angle lenses. Colours are a pretty much as taken with just a bit of dodging and burning along with a slight curves adjustment for contrast. The Sigma 12-24 lens does not have a filter thread due to the quite pronounced dome to the front element. Sigma do make an filter adaptor of some sorts but only for use at the 24mm end, and that is no doubt far from cheap!!

Excellent shot Dave and to me it makes the bridge twist to the point that you can see the far pillars leaning to a high degree.I do not know the bridge well- have only been over it once- so I wonder if the lens exagerates the span even more than it's real length.

Great shot Dave, I like the twist effect and the lean of the far pillar. Thanks too for the explanation.

That extra wide angle of 12mm is gonna take a bit of getting used to and controlling. But certainly is a stunning lump of glass
