Widely seen

One of the most exciting things to me when I got my D700 a year and a half ago was the upgrade to the wide angle lens.  I had borrowed some friends’ glass before, including a fisheye and a 10-20mm, but those were just for some shots here and there.  Whenever I finally got the 16-35mm lens though, I was like a kid in a candy store and still can’t seem to put it down when I go shooting.  I did make it my goal to try and be more versatile with my use of lenses in 2012, so we’ll see where that goes!


All that being said, today I wanted to share a few more shots of Pittsburgh that I’ve taken over the last month.  The first one above was taken from the Duquesne Incline, during the same storm we had on January 2nd that I captured the snow as it blanketed the city.  The snow had moved on by the time that I shot this one, but I still really liked the shot.  The second shot above is the same view, just in B&W, which I recently haven’t been able to shake my addiction to!


Sticking around the Duquesne Incline, this is the actual incline building, which I shot while I was waiting for the snow to roll in.  It’s really interesting inside as well and I plan to go back there shooting soon.


Next we head down to the North Shore when I had made my way inside PNC Park the same day.  The moon was just barely visible over the Pittsburgh skyline.


Finally we have one that doesn’t really fit the title as I shot it with my 70-200mm the day that Zach Frailey was in town and we did some shooting.  It was pretty hazy when we were at the West End Overlook and the light never really did cooperate, but we still managed to fire off a few brackets.


Thanks for dropping by today everyone, see you all tomorrow.

    I like the color version of the first shot for the contrast in colors and the Duquesne Incline is really nice. Love the green standing out to the blue stormy sky.ReplyCancel

    These images really rock Dave. I was going to tell you my favorite but I can’t pick one. I have always heard that Pittsburgh is a great place to visit and through your images I can see why.ReplyCancel

    Wow another great series of shots Dave. I love the vantage point of the first image.ReplyCancel

  • Ryan Sexton - January 31, 2012 - 1:35 pm

    Great set Dave! I really like the one from PNC Park. A skyline photo from an angle where your looking up at the world, pretty badass. Dave you have the most uniquely looking photos I see on the web. Your processing is like no other. If I were to see one of you photos on the web, I could say Hey that’s Dave’s.

    FYI – The last 2 photos did not load in Firefox 9.01 I tried twice. They did load in IE.ReplyCancel

    Wonderful series Dave. I envy your wide angle lens! These are really great.ReplyCancel

  • Adam Allegro - February 1, 2012 - 3:41 am

    I remember another shot from that first loaction. I think you had a funiculare in motion on that shot. I just dig your processing style, always have. Keep em coming my friend. These are so cool.ReplyCancel
