Horseshoe Fence

Hurriedly doing my "fence post" again.  I'm test driving a Tamron 16-300 mm lens. 

What do you think?  It seems a little sharp on some landscapes, at least for me. Time to make in camera adjustments. Not sure if i will keep or return. 

I'm so behind again, seems like I have little time anymore for visiting. I must get ready to go to work again in about 15 minutes. 




Of course I'm linking with Tex at GOOD FENCES.

Stop over to see more great fences.

I think these are great images, Felicia! I use a Tamron zoom too...100-300. I say play around some more...they look good to me!

I do like that rusty old horseshoe, and I don't object to the foreground sharpness. Just looks like a strong sunny day.

I say keep the lens, my friend Diane has one and it took her a while to get use to it. one thing she found is she was getting to close the the object. love the horseshoe

I actually do prefer a little "sharper" image.

Wonderful shots! I was just reading about that lens on B&H. I am envious. It seems like a pretty good deal for a pretty nice lens. And it's good to see what it can do. Of course, the person behind the lens has something to do with the quality as well.

Awesome photo, Felicia.
I didn't know you were so good at Horseshoes :)

Have a Happy Day and may you get a breather @ work.

Peace :)

Excellent detail with that lens Felicia. I'd give it a further workout before discarding it.

Hope you find time to put your feet up.

I rather like the sharpness of the shots. The detail is really great. That rusty horseshoe shows up so well with the barbed wire fencing.
Brian King said…
Beautiful photos! Love the wire and horseshoe!

I'm laughing just a bit because I've never ever heard anyone complain about a lens being too sharp. :-) Sharpness is what you want in a lens. Most gripes about lenses are because they aren't sharp enough (too soft). You can always "soften" your photos in post processing if you think they're too sharp. If that lens is that tack sharp, I may have to get one for myself!
I love the diagonals of the second shot :)

What a cool shot - I like the horseshoe.
And I like the sharpness of the lense, especially in landscape photography.

A horseshoe on the fence - must be a lucky one!

I really like the clarity/sharpness of the images. Good captures.
Stephanie said…
Splendid images, Felicia. Hope you can keep the lens awhile longer to experiment further. Oh I know how you feel about time limits these days.

Very nice images from this lens and really useful telephoto range too!

Can't say I've ever heard of any one returning a lens because it's too sharp before... Difficult to make an out of focus picture sharper but no problem making an in focus picture a little softer.
Ileana said…
I think this lens is great! You should keep it! :)

Many greetings,
Marco
I feel lucky just for stopping by!

Great shots, wonderful patina on that horseshoe!
Susan said…
Such a nice image :D)
Rose said…
Great captures. We had to make a quick run to daughter's house and I have hardly visited any Fence shots, even though I joined...I had done posted the night before, and went ahead and joined even though I didn't have much time.

Life happens and we just do what we can do.

the horseshoe makes this a wonderful image, for me.
These look like just perfect images to me! It's good to see the sharpness of the barbs on the wire so clearly!
