I shot this photo using a Tokina 11-16mm AT-X PRO, which I borrowed courtesy of Edwin Catania. For a third-party lens I am positively impressed by its performance. If it wasn’t for its focal length of 11mm I wouldn’t have been able to shoot this image, as I was literally with my back against the wall.
I took three bracketed RAW shots, which were HDR merged and tonemapped in Photomatix. The resulting image was finished in Photoshop. Shot in Victoria, Gozo. Image is best viewed large.
