This is a very relaxing and soothing image Sett - a wonderful piece for any wall. So often we see sunset images with the color cranked up so high in post that it looks almost radioactive. This is not one of them; your subtlety and restraint has created a very nice image. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks kind of you Pearl, thank you !!

This shot of Cleveland's Flats was done a few years ago from the Subway level of the Detroit Superior bridge.

They had deployed special lighting for this event which was a perfect addition to the evening sky. My only regret was not having a tripod for this shot. It's not badly done but the shutter speed was a bit low for hand-held at 1/10 second. It looks ok here but the sharpness breaks up a bit once you start enlarging it for print. I lost a hotel print sale because of that. They wanted to blow it up to about 110" in width and it fell apart. We live and learn ;-)a.

Really like that wave side lighting on the first one Gary. That's not something you see everyday.

I live the way the sun is hitting the spray in the first one! How do you like your Sony a7ii compared to your 6D. I get jealous of it's portability! Should I consider exchanging my 6D body for a a7 and EF adapter?

Thanks guys.

It was an awesome spot and the photo's don't do justice to the size of the waves that were coming in.

Sunlight was just perfect, setting to the right hand side behind the rocks.

Re the a7ii and 6D. I really love them both.

I like some of the features of the Sony, manual focus and peaking being a couple of my favourites, and as you say the portabilitly of them is just great. My camera bag doesn't way as much now thats for sure.

I really like the images on the Sony and the DR is a lot better.

I tried to shoot some astro after we finished with the sunset and am a little stuck with the a7ii as I couldn't see anything but noise on the evf and eyepiece, even when I banged the iso up to 25600 to try and focus on some stars. The shots came ok, but I was having to guess at the compostion and just used the infinity mark on the lens. I recently brought the Sharpstar from Lonelyspec to help with focus when shooting astro, but haven't tried it yet. The 6D is just awesome for astro. Wife is not keen on my holding onto it as I also got the a6000 recently too.

I will be trying out the Sony with my Samyang 24mm F1.4 for some astro too, but if anyone has any advice for shooting astro with the Sony I'd love to hear it :)
