Fall Creek and Ithaca Falls. A few handheld shots with the sdQ +18-35 + Kolari Hot Mirror (- internal IR cut/dust shield). This setup really requires a tripod to avoid shake and DOF limitations. Most of these were shot in shutter priority mode.
I think that this was our last day of Indian Summer, with some dramatic changes coming this weekend so I took the opportunity to get out and take some snaps. Just received the Sigma 8-16 and this was my first outing with this lens on the sdQ. I had to re-install the internal hot mirror/dust shield because this lens does not take filters. I shot these using 3:2 format except for last one in 16:9 format and all auto WB. Processed raws through SPP 6.4 and exported TIFFS to LR where I applied only minor exposure adjustments and then exported through Piccure+ plugin for light sharpening before sending to Flickr as 50% jpegs (I really wish that Flickr would stop adding sharpening when doing re-sizing.). Click image for the 50% original exported to Flickr. I think that the 8-16 UW is a nice, older generation lens with good distortion and color aberration control.

is focus where it should be?
^^^^ Terry, your work ^^^^
Definitely the most impressive work with an SD Quattro I've seen. I am particularly surprised that the EXIF on some captures show very small apertures, f11 and f16. On my DP01 the captures turn to mush above f8 and as it uses the same sensor (I believe) I'm surprised your photos are so sharp at these apertures.
Anyway, an eye opener - and thanks for links to larger sizes which helps with the evaluation.
