The TAMRON 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Model B008) is quite a controversial lens. I just had to get one to find out for myself what this lens is all about. Follow my blog as I use this lens on a daily basis and discover for yourself if this lens is indeed a diamond in the rough, or if it simply just another average, try to do it all, kit level lens.

Beautiful doorway from a building on the corner of Willis St and Ghuznee in Wellington. This shot would not be possible or have the depth if it was not for a bit of HDR from 3 shots all 2 stops apart. I am very glad I took the time to stop and take a couple of shots of the doorway. Initially I walked past it. Whoops, almost a missed opportunity.

One tip I can leave you with is that HDR works best with natural earthy colors, such as browns, golds, yellows and greens. Blue and red can easily become over saturated during your HDR processing. Keep that in mind when you shoot subjects.
