The D7000 is a crop sensor. 35mm is normal. If you want wide you need more like 17mm.

Depends on what you shoot and what style you like. For most of my photos the longest lens I use is my 50/1.4. I love it. I get delicious results almost every time. Other than that I use the 10-20 - I just wish it went below f/4. I have a love/hate relationship with that lens. Next on my list is a 24-70/2.8 b/c I'm tired of swapping out lenses so much, particularly at car shows. For car shows, landscapes/cityscapes, and most of my night photography I use the 10-20. for picking out details in a setting and some portrait stuff I use the 50/1.4 or the 28/1.8.

And, yes, I love the steel wool. Really lights up the night. Just be careful you don't set your surroundings on fire. Happened to a friend of mine.

Yeah I should have mentioned I also have a 10-20 that I use for most wide shots (and steel wool shots.)

Yeah I used my 10-20 a lot over the years and I really liked it but it seems like it is not an all around lens or something that I enjoy KEEPING on my camera, otherwise it is a really fun lens. However I would be mostly shooting cars and sometimes objects or landscapes so the 35mm almost sounds best, but the compression of the 85 I think would be awesome to have.

I don't think I'd be a "normal" focal length for landscapes or cars. Even just for walking around at car shows I would want something wider. For pre-planned car shots I think I would want something 85mm to 200mm for the perspective compression.

I know people are going to say the sky is blown out...but I did it on purpose. This is one of those "breaking the rules" times that I did off of my own personal preference.

Technically. Because the car is correctly exposed and in a shadow. I did take multiple exposures so I could have layered the sky correctly exposed in with the car...but I ended up really liking the way it looked without doing that.

I, too, like the way the photo looks with the sky like that. I think it brings out the car more and kind of makes you create your own story for the picture (like it just escaped something behind it, haha)... nice work!

Sacrificing exposure for exposure. Nice shot rsutton1223.

I tried lowering the exposure on the sky to bring some of the details back in, and I think it looks really good!
