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.

Old Kick Car

This photo is from the British Car Museum in Napier. To make the little kick car stand out, I've opted to create a semi paint effect on the background.

Fly shake

I've discovered some photos on one of my SD cards that I have not uploaded to Lightroom. Below is a simple closeup using a closeup filter. The image was slightly blurred - my fault. But I've recently upgraded to Photoshop CC and I've not yet used the new Shake Reduction filter. Normally I've would use more conventional sharpening techniques, but I was keen to see what the hype was about, and I stand pleasantly surprised.
