Peter Chin is my real name.
In lieu of Year of The Snake, a local store had 3 snakes for customers to get a free photo with. I like this one not for composition but more for the reactions on the faces you can see.

19mm is great for tight space photo Ops, i'm right in the action.

I don't know if I have a bad copy but I have issues focusing with my 19 Sigma. I'm about to return it. Here's one sample image.

Autofocus...and yes, hunting for focus and when it appears to have focused, the part of the image that should be in focus is not....I'll go back and check the shutter speeds but don't think it was that. Light was adequate, indoor and outdoor. Camera was last updated couple weeks ago with 1.01(?) software...

Well I am a newbie man and I have heard many times that a 19mm is not good for portraits. At the same time I see a very nice image and I am tempted to ask though, why not crop the head now and produce a nice portrait?
