    Dis n'dat

    I use a Sigma 150mm macro lens for closer up subjects. Suddenly and for no known reason it went bad. In the camera it would make a constant ticking sound and off the camera the insides rattled.

    Still had 2 weeks on the warranty and had it fixed. An inexplicable other issue that arose was that there is a bright circle along the outer edges of the shots. The repair guy said that I should turn off peripheral illumination correction and that "solved" the issue. Prior to the lens going wonky there was never an issue with the outer edges. Perhaps just a lazy tech who did not want to refer the matter up.

    Some shots from the "fixed" lens.

    Looks like no problemo to me. Tack sharp, great color. Nicely composed too.

    Thanks Mark. Yes seems to be ok but that thing about the "white" ring (vignette?) is still bothering me.

    Very nice. #5 is excellent, though if it were mine I'd probably darken the upper left corner and blur the leaf on the right a little and maybe darken it.

    The sigma 150 macro is a fantastic lens. I should probably bring mine out of storage and start getting some macros and other shots...but my 400mm prime seems to be stuck onto my camera

    Hi Bobo,

    I can't see anything wrong except that the histogram on all of them is a bit to far to the right. On my screen they all seem a tad to light. Otherwise they are fine and really great images.

    Thanks Matt, Andre. I agree with both the comments. Seems trying to go for the "light" look did not quite work out.

    Will revert to "normal" processing....

    I disagree. I really like the brighter workups on these images; the higher key works for the subjects and I didn't notice it as an issue at all. I think these are great.

    Thanks Matt - now that is something to mull over.
