It's been a little while (almost two months) since I did any serious photography. Today I went out with my newly aquired lens -- an Olympus Digital Zuiko 7-14mm that I purchased used from B&H before the holidays which arrived today.
Being a rather grey day outdoors I decided to put it to work on some indoor architectural photography. One of my favourite photog' venues in Toronto is Union Station so I thought I'd try the new lens out there. I was quite happy with the results. I did discover that this lens will have a quite a learning curve. The incredibly wide field of view means that the photographer must be very careful to align the shot properly and to ensure that the camera is level. For spaces like Union, straight lines will produe a huge amount of "floor" in the frame. To avoid that I tried using the stairwell as a forground subject and am very happy with the results of the shot considering it was my first time shooting this wide (8mm for this photo).
I don't typically post process my photos (beyond a crop, shirnk, shapen) but was convinced to add an "aged" effect to this one!
