    Wow you really can sink into the photos. You got some great angles and perspective that really makes these interesting. I definitely think you captured this building successfully

    Wow, great shots. I saw this from your link in the beginner's forum on the Tokina wide angle lens. You certainly sold me here.

    Thanks for your feedback. I agree on this regarding #1 –I probably should increase contrast on that one. Number 2 does have some good contrast, and #3 I specifically reduced the contrast in order to bring out some detail on the door.

    Glad you like this lens. Two of these three photos were shot wide open, yet the lens is still very sharp.

    Thanks everybody for stopping by, much appreciated.

    I'd be cautious about increasing contrast in #1. There's already a good range in value there, and darkening might cause loss of shadow detail, while lightening would need to be selectively done, or the light sky rectangles at bottom would be blown.

    Yup... I've tried to improve contrast in #1 but have failed once and again.

    Thanks John and Rere!
