Allaire State Park is a place where you can get a pretty vivid look at times gone by…. Many of the shops that operated back in the early 1800’s are open on the weekends with workers honing their craft. There’s a blacksmith, a tinsmith, a bakery and this wheelwright shop amongst others. The unfortunate part of this is that taking pictures inside any buildings is not allowed because the park is run by the state. How much sense does this make? Someone please help me! What would the downside be to this? It’s a shame because great shots could be had with the tinsmiths and blacksmiths actually working !
Oh well, on another note….this lens (Sigma 10-20) in the early going, has not disappointed. This shot, at f/11 has got to be the sweet spot for this lens…at least at this point. This , in my eyes, is tack sharp. What do you see? Agree, disagree? Let me know. Stay tuned as a review of this lens is forthcoming.
This is a 6 shot HDR, tonemapped in Photomatix and then finished in Lightroom by adjusting the dark tones, white balance and saturation level.
