Here are a few from a few weeks ago along the Mendocino coast

Probably not the strongest compositions, although I do like the 1st.

I need to use this lens more often to get used to using it right
NOTE: These have the PS lens correction applied

I also like the first shot! I feel that it might benefit from a bit of work on the contrast and foreground/background brightness, however. Much of the shot feels a bit dingy, and could use a little punch. Just IMO though.

It was a bit of a dingy day
It sort of looked that way, but I could revisit it for presentation benefits

I don't own mine anymore but after having compared it to various, much more expensive alternatives (14L II, 15ZE) I'm craving for it again. But here are a few old snaps:

Kiddik, I really like those shots. Makes me want to buy one.

dswiger, your shots are not bad, but are under-exposed or not contrasty enough for my taste, just my opinion.

I didn't really thought that this lens was any good, to be honest. That should be a lesson to myself to stop reading so much gear hate on the internet.

I have a thread over in the Nikon forum, but picked this lens up a few months ago. Here is the latest shot, taken last weekend. Heading out tonight for an extended trip..

This is probably as bad as it gets. My initial dislike of HDR tonal mapping takes new high.

it's been slow days, I tried Carsten's HDR process on page 102 of the leica thread on this single shot cropped (3:1 aspect ratio) to a pano. seems way over sharpened to me. end result is 104 degrees of horizontal angle of view and 40.5 degrees of vertical angle of view.

Great shots! Yeah, the process has to be adjusted for each camera/lens, and to taste. I had to dial it back somewhat when I picked up a D800 as well.

The Samyang 14mm is a great bargain lens. Regarding 14mm options, the only gear-hate I read is directed toward the Canon 14L II (which I own). I chose the 14L II over the Samyang and remain very pleased with my decision, but the Samyang is an excellent option and the price is unbeatable.
