Yesterday morning (yesterday? Well, it’s Tuesday morning 5:30 now, I have just woken up) when I went to work, I still had the Sigma 70/2.8 Macro mounted from the weekend’s macro sessions. Boy, did that lens feel good on the street! It’s that combination of a short telephoto lens with the incredible control of depth of field. I absolutely love using this lens wide open.
In the end I have only worked on this single image. There are some others that would be worthwhile (and that I would have taken anytime on a lesser day), one that I’ll try again because of too tight framing, and a gorgeous bicycle that was unfortunately marred by litter on the ground that I failed to see and remove. What’s wrong with Photoshop, you ask? Well, have you ever tried to clone behind the spokes of a bicycle’s wheel? Believe me, there are selections you don’t want to make 🙂
