Sakthik, just using a table lamp and getting this quality was a great inspiration for me not to give up. Sigma ought to use this in their next brochure. I'd email them the link to the photo ans see what they say!

I will. I jusy emailed them with the link to your gallery. I encouraged them to contact you directly. this photo needs to be in their catalog. It's so sharp and colorful, they'd be nuts not to use it.
