It was at 28mm on my SK 18-55, and I used AutoStitch.

Yeah, free. Though mine says demo version, so I don't know if there's another version that costs money

Tamron 90mm SP Macro. Though I don't know how "budget" that is for Nikon, but for the quality, it's very well priced.

looks like a good lens. only 269 too. Do you own one? Just wondering if the 11.4in minimum focus distance is close enough.

I'd be interested for the Fisheye as well.

No I don't but I've heard nothing but great things about it. And as for the focusing distance, if it's the Macro you're looking at, then yes, it is. Macro doesn't mean close focusing, it means a 1:1 or greater magnification ratio. Wider Macro lenses will have closer min. focusing distance than longer ones, but still be Macro. My Sigma 70-300 Macro Super has Macro capability between 200-300mm, and the macro focusing range is 0.95m-1.5m

I'd suggest to pony up the dough for a 60mm Micro Nikkor. You'll get a macro lens, a portrait lens (the 60 becomes an ideal 90mm on DX format) and you get one of the sharpest Nikkors out there.

I have one, I love mine.

But the Tamron isn't a bad lens, it's very good in fact. But I don't have any first hand experience with it.

That's why you buy a 2nd hand one and cover it in waterlogged badges and a loop of denim.

I'd like to take this thread to ask for some feedback by you guys

I had fifteen minutes left today, so i took the oppurtunity to walk from the center of the city towards my University with my camera ready. I actually quite like some shots and must say I am impressed with the results RAW-editing can achieve. But you always like your own pictures, right ? So I am very curious as to what you find of these pictures

The hi-res versions are in the .rar file you can find here:
http://rapidshare.com/files/16225333...-2007.rar.html

Any constructive criticism is appreciated so please DO fire away !!!

drakkie, #2 is way too washed out. Unless ofcourse that was the effect you were aiming for. When photographing high contrast scenes like that you need to decide if you want to expose for the highlights or the shadows, in that scene (in most scenes) I'd probably go for the highlights. It looks like you increased the contrast there, too, which IMO doesen't help.

#3 could have been good with a slightly different angle, it's hard to tell what the subject is in that picture is.

I would have used a larger aperture for #4 to put more emphasis on the statue/whatever it is, because again it all looks a bit too busy.

I like #5 and Last one!

Thanks. Im thinking of going there again today, so I will try some of your tips

#2 is way too washed out because i made a mistake by using a too long shutterspeed. The damage was reduced a bit in editing, but as you see, it clearly shows
