Shooting with the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 Zoom

Nikkor 14-24mm at the Kraus House site in Kirkwood. This is Kirkwood's Frank Lloyd Wright house and it's a beautiful site with the low house set behind the tall trees.

I bought this lens a week ago and it's pretty obvious that it's going to take some time to learn how to use it effectively - to get into the super-wide mindset. I hope to be shooting with this a lot and will post more examples soon.

Nikon D3, AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 @14mm, 1/1250 @ f/5.6, ISO 200.

So, is it the snow or the new lens that's getting you out in the cold?

Man, that is crisp! Do you let the camera do corrections, like vignette compensation?

Good question. I meant to mention that I didn't use any of the lens correction tools in Lightroom. The only adjustments made were contrast +5 and blacks -2.

Ben - It's the snow - I've always liked getting out for snow pics...
