Happy Election Day!

This vine grows around the courtyard entrance, and it looks really beautiful in the afternoon. This is probably my 25th attempt to capture said beauty, but it’s not really particularly close. This—and all other attempts—lack the subtlety of it all.

In other news, I think I have enough images for the Tokina review… now to make time to finish writing it, give it a couple of days to breathe, slap an edit on it, and share away. Hopefully, I’ll get there this weekend, but I make no promises.

One thing I noticed here, the barrel distortion present at 35mm has become pincushion distortion at 110mm (where this was shot), before becoming wildly complex moustache distortion at 200mm, and this even on a 1.5x crop like the D7000.


D7000. Tokina AT-X 35-200mm f/3.5-4.5. ISO800, 1/125th, f/11. About 4 minutes of slider play, plus maybe 3 minutes of cloning out specks and splotches on the window in Aperture.
