If you need to be told what this is then I think you need to get out more :)

The first day in London we went up the tall building in the background, this is called the Shard and it's the tallest building in London.

If you have a look at the bits connecting between each tower for the bridge you can see what looks like it's see thru, this is in fact glass bottoms and yes you can pay to go up. there are lifts (much to mums delight)

I hpoe you guys are liking the photos. I have only started scratching the surface, I got a few more places that I haven't posted yet and with just over 1700 photos, some good and some I don't like.

I don't like the 6D and canon at the moment. I feel like the camera wasn't doing what I wanted it to do, or it could have been me forgetting what to do.

I feel like I want to get something smaller for travelling. I have been looking at the Fuji series.

so I am going to be creating a book so does anyone know a good site to use?

Always jealous of travel photos, make me want to get overseas more! there looking good and keep them coming :)

I have just moved from Canon to Fujifilm, hadnt been feeling the 5D for a while and the size was causing me to not want to use it.
I ended up buying a Fujifilm X-e3 two weeks ago and so far have really been enjoying it, i picked it up with the 23mm F2 lens and the 50-140mm F2.8.

few pictures from Sunday at the Very Vintage Day Out with it.

Frankly Paul, that's the best work I've seen from you. Blame the camera? LOL

so I am going to be creating a book so does anyone know a good site to use?

In all honesty, having grown up with manual film cameras, then an aperture priority auto/man Mamiya NC1000s my first SLR I still treat digital cameras in the old fashioned sense except I have stayed with auto focus, (my eyes change with sinus problems) and mostly use AV. Practice is certainly an aspect, keep doing or you lose it, but when you find you are sort of mental block doing what you see as perhaps mediocre work, try going back to basics, you think, rather than the camera. Frankly most of the 6D is wasted on me, as is digital processing. I just cant get my brain past the basics.

In the past, when asked I have taught, and to me taking a photo goes something like this, first what actually is the subject?, ie my mate's face or the wallpaper behind them? What do I want to do with the pic which then suggests what aperture to shoot at ie wide open or stopped down for depth of field, then consider how much light, and we are lucky, we can speed up the film speed each shot, but I do get bogged down with ISO 100 the old colour print speed.

You are already a competant handler of the camera so making those decisions is over in seconds and you instinct which you have practiced to teach will tell you that you are not going to stop a flying rugby tackler at a1/2000/sec at f16 in a dense fog at 1000 yds and 100ISO.

So after all that rambling my advice is, go back to basics and use the KISS principle. My version is Keep It Simple, Stupid. yourself being the one addressed to as stupid.

As for printing a book that croud that advertise free buisnes cards on tv (you pay delivery?) does that sort of thing too.

Very best wishes, Chris

I had some issues with the 6D, I found the palm of my hand would sometimes turn the wheel on the back, which would adjust the exposure compensation in the wrong direction. A number of times I had been shooting and had to return it back to 0.

I had to lock the wheel a number of times, but then found it annoying to unlock when I changed to manual.

I look at some of the photos that were once in a life time to get and sometimes feel like I didn't get the best I wanted, even tho the camera was in 1/2 auto mode.

I think you will find Chris that you are getting the most of the camera. The basic controls of taking a photo haven't changed since cameras were invented. those extra features we get today, in some ways we don't need, just to take a photo.

Yep. Which is what I was trying to say. Ok, back to practice... sigh :rolleyes:
