I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised by the power of software to bring out something interesting in images that might otherwise be a wash, but wouldn’t you know it, I’m still capable of being amazed.
I’m currently shooting with the Nikon D800 of late as part of an assignment (more to come on that later), and I was up in the hills overlooking the San Francisco Bay Area at night, hoping to get some shots of the brilliantly-lit vista that encompassed San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, and parts of the Peninsula area.

At BorrowLenses.com we get a lot of phone calls from potential customers with questions regarding which gear to use for certain types of photography. Of those calls, one of the most prominent is “What is the best wide angle lens to rent for landscapes?” The answer is there are plenty of great lenses to choose from, but which lens is best depends heavily on which camera body you are using. When we ask people what camera they have, the majority respond that they are shooting with a crop-sensor body, and this affects lens selection in a significant way. Crop sensor bodies from Canon include the 10-60D, Rebel series and 7D. On the Nikon side there are the D4/5/6/7/8/90, D7000 and D300 series.
