Sunset at Honokowai



I took these two shots out in front of our condo one night. They were both shot with the Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens.

Honokowai is in West Maui and just a few miles from Ka'anapali Beach and the town of Lahaina. Just far enough to be out of the hussle and bussle but close enough for a short car ride to all of the restaurants and shops.

  3. Perfect time of day for these shots! You never would have captured the whole essence of your surroundings without your Sigma ultra wide.

  4. Thanks Sandy! You have a great weekend too!

    Paul, I have to hand it to you for the Sigma. Had you not told me about it I may never have bought a wide angle at all.

    I'm shopping for one for the D700 now. I may go with the Nikon 17-35mm 2.8 if I can get me a deal.

  8. Great colors! Good choice on the 17-35mm f/2.8, I have my over 10 years, and love everything about it. I hope you will find a good deal on that, but it's not cheap!

  9. Thanks Q! I read a lot of reviews about the lens and it sounded like the way to go.

    I found one this weekend and should have it by Tuesday or Wednesday of this week. I'll be ready to go back to Hawaii soon! LOL

  10. Well, it looks like you have all the lens you needed. All you have to do is look into some Lee filters.

  11. Lee filters?? I've never heard of them. I will have to check that out. I have UV filters for all of the lenses now and I have a set of ND filters and a CPL along with a couple of different colored filters.

    The best thing about all of these lenses and something that Paul pointed out a while back is that they all use the same size filter. That makes it A LOT easier!
