    Nice and vibrant. You might want to straighten it out though, and crop it to adhere to the rule of thirds (worth reading about this, whilst you shouldn't ALWAYS stick to it, it's an important thing to learn about)

    Simple straighten and crop:

    Sigma 10-20, Tokina 11-16, Tokina 12-24 are all fantastic lenses. The 11-16 is probably the best out of them.
