Here are some photos from my trip last week to Clearwater Beach. These were all taken with my NEX-7, shot in RAW and processed in Lightroom. I rented a SEL 10-18 f/4 for this trip (first time I rented a lens). Overall I enjoyed the wide perspective so much that I never bothered to use my 8mm fisheye. When processing the shots however I noticed the lens had some difficulty which high contrast area, especially the highlights. In reality, it was mostly my fault when setting exposure but I don't have that issue with my Zony 24mm. I am now considering purchasing the SEL 10-18. This was a handheld HDR using the +-3 bracketed shutter. I managed to stay still enough, with a big assist from the bright sun. It was admittedly processed heavily in Photomatix and LR. Loved the yellow umbrellas; long exposure shot showing the view from the back of our rented condo. and the same shot at night... Everyone likes to complain about shooting under a "harsh sun" but it is nice setting the ISO to 100 and forgetting it. This was @ 14mm f/5.6 and 1/1250 sec. another lifeguard and stand... some more on the beach... and some shots as the sun was dropping... We enjoyed our week in Clearwater Beach. I wish the summer water in the Gulf of Mexico was just a bit cooler but some great memories were made and I had a blast with my camera.
