Straight to my favorites Michelle!! Gorgeous capture and treatments. I've been seriously considering this lens, mainly because I'd like to have one lens to help cut down the amount of times I have to cleam my sensor. My worry was the quality at the wide end, but looking at this it looks terrific to me. Does it have some kind of vibration compensation? I ask here instead of a forum lol. #7186093

Fascinated with the New Jersey State House's gold dome, I shot it at a variety of angles, and found it extraordinary at each. Thank you, everyone, for continuing to look at these Trenton sites.
This is the right side, where the "house" appears almost residential. Applied a small collection of OnOne PhotoTools effects, and stopped when it looked like THIS!
By the way, I am crazy about this Tamron 18-270 lens at the end of my D50. It is just so versatile, and its image stabilization superb.
Shot this at the wide end.

Exif: F Number: 5, Exposure Bias Value: 1.33, ExposureTime: 1/250 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 18.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 50D
