I just realized I forgot to upload and show them - they were shot about two months ago:

Same building; different perspective:

I just love those wide angle shots looking from ground up to the sky(-scraper):

Great shots Jiko.

They are all good shots, but I like the convergence in the first one most.

I'm amazed at the sharpness and clarity for night shots.


Cheers

I just really love the combination 5D3 + Sigma 12-24mm! They are a great team.

On this day the plan was to do videos but somehow the buildings were more spectacular than anything that was moving at night.

Agree 100% with the others, number one is an excellent shot. I'm surprised at how nicely the 12-24 performs, and does it ever get wide :shock:

I'd love to visit Frankfurt some day, it looks like a beautiful city.

Wide open @F4.5 the Sigma 12-24mm isn't the sharpest lens and it has some focusing problems but I usually use it manually focused to infinity and at F8 in order to get the best results possible out of the lens. Contrast and colors are quite nice and it doesn't need too much work processing the RAW files. I'm really happy with that lens. ;)

It was quite cold and cloudy that night but at night clouds aren't as bad as at day where shots tend to look too grey.

Wow, usually I'm not a big fan of architecture photography, but #1 IS really great!
