    Some of you might recall not so long ago I posted a dramatic shot of the washington monument at sunset. Using a 12mm Tokina lens, I got some dreat distortions on this shot as well.

    Yeah, a 12mm makes it lean for sure.

    Yes, it's the Tokina 12-24mm f/4 AT-X 124AF Pro DX. The lens runs about 500.00 new. It's a sweet lens. It's one lens in my kit I would replace over and over again if it ever were to get broken or stolen. Get one! I tried to Nikon 10mm fisheye right before I bought this and was not very impressed and thought the fisheye would have a limited use where the 12mm end of this lens can be used much more often and the distortions are minimal. It's built strong and rugged, all metal housing, yet it's light enough to walk around the city with all day. I am meeting with some friends tomorrow if it does not rain and I plan on using this lens to shoot some ghetto street scenes. I should have more postings from this lens soon.

    What I like about this picture is how the clouds make the monument POP. Great job.
