Wide Angle Landscape

The old Barn

The old Barn

This picture was taken during a hike around Frosterley in County Durham during our recent holiday. It shows an old barn we walked past which I took with a Tamron 10-24mm super wide angle lens fitted to my Pentax K5. I find this lens to be superb for taking landscape photos – it has great colour rendition and being so wide a very high depth of field. This lens is rapidly becoming my favorite lens.

I did some post-processing in Lightroom 5 to slightly correct exposure in the sky and then pulled the luminence of the sky down a bit to make it a deeper blue. I also increased the clarity a bit and applied a touch of sharpening.

I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.
