    Tried taking a few pics with a good old film SLR cam. I am an amateur photographer. Here are some pics that I took at Mahabalipuram in Chennai, India.

    Either way, a UWA is a great addition to the kit. You'll be pleased with it.
    I'm looking forward to using one, I just have to remember to get as close as possible to things.

    Works better if you mention that before making us wait for the images to load and fill the screen.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Some good shots Metallics.

    They do appear to be overexposed a little but they are very interesting. On bright sunny days it could be worth trying a bit of minus exposure compensation as most DSLR's do over expose in these conditions. I visited the vally of temples in Sicily and had the same problem but will be going back in a couple of months and this time will use a polarizing filter.

    All shots taken with the aperture setting on 5.6 btw. What aperture setting would you use on sunny days? I used a 100x film for those photos. Some photos had a bluish tint to them which I did not post. What could be the problem?

    For this type of photography I would depending on the lens, try to shoot with an aperture setting around 8-11 as this will give a better depth of field bringing more of the picture into focus and a slower shutter speed. Even with the smaller aperture I would still look at under exposing at least a third.


    So its not a DSLR, then I could have mistaken the quality of the pics if they are scanned in and not actual JPEGS/RAW files from the camera.

    The blue tinge is chromatic distortion, this is due to the brightness of the sky as compared to the deeper tones of the subject. When you have such a large difference in the light areas and dark areas where they merge becomes to hard to define, googling "dynamic range" and "chromatic distortion" will give some good information better explained than I could.

    For sunny days, I'd recommend somewhere between 8 and 32, depending on the cloud cover. I generally use 11 or 16 on bright sunny days. You may also want to try a polarizing filter if you're doing a lot of outdoor shooting, on sunny days.
