A quick update to the site changed the looks significantly, though I still need to flush out some of the pages. I'll be streamlining the website to decrease clutter a little.

It's capable of crisp, sharp images while being versatile enough to even do portraits. I'm pretty impressed. The 10-22mm is at home in tight
