Lovely capture.

This is a really good shot. Well done.
It seems more lyrical than many of the other entries - more about the music and the artistic production of it than the glitz.

On Australian Tiger Snake in the -Snakes- (Full Rich Colours Only + Border) challenge (2 comments in total)

Congratulations, Kris. This is an excellent photo of the aggressive display of this species. It is a beautiful and very dangerous snake. I'm guessing you used a fairly long telephoto lens.

A brilliant pano, Rick. The Quattro really does landscapes beautifully in the right hands.

Marty4650: Sigma really has found their market niche.

Their cameras are designed for people who really value "being different" above all other considerations. It doesn't matter if they cost too much or perform too little as long as they are bizarre in some way.

No one can ever accuse Sigma of running with the herd. And the odds are, no one will ever be stealing their camera designs.

They probably should stick with what they do best.... making lenses, and leave grotesque camera designs for someone else.

And you, Marty, should probably stick to what you do best as well. Believe me, it's NOT commenting on a camera you have never used and passing judgement on an entire segment of the community you know nothing about.

On Evening light in the Beautiful world challenge (2 comments in total)

Well done! One of the very best shots in this challenge.

It bothers me that people are so attracted to bright, garish colours and all but ignore subtly and great composition.

On old blue pavement... in the Sigma Challenge challenge (1 comment in total)

This shot was NOT taken with a Sigma camera. Why was it not disqualified?

Nice overall framing and composition.
Pity the face is out of focus.

Marty4650: I hope the folks who say "Sigma should stop making lenses with Nikon mounts" realize that is precisely how Sigma makes a living. The lions share of their revenue comes from selling lenses to Canon and Nikon users.

You could probably take all the Sigma SA mount users and have a group meeting with them in a two car garage.

If you've got a two car garage, you can host it. I'll even let you try a Sigma + Sigma lens combo. You will definitely like it.

BayAreaWZ: Great interview. It's rare executives speak without marketing spin. I wouldn't be surprised if this interview didn't just boost dp Quattro preorders or at least intent.

Sigma DO produce both a 150 and 180mm Macro. Check their website.
