thanks - do you remember the old bailey bridge they had before the new bridge was built? much fun to be had launching a car at excessive speed....

probably a stop under what the camera decided was reasonable. Looks rubbish if viewed as-shot!

foggy it was, probably 10 mins after the sun had started breaking through and 1/2 an hour after I was supposed to have been elsewhere working. I blamed the traffic & no-one batted an eyelid :-)

view the other way:

I think I like that better. Yep I remember that bailey bridge, was treacherous in the wet also, particularly if on bikes of both types ;) :)

Like it as well. The only thing that distracts my eye a bit is the billboard at upper left (because it's so bright and has a face on it). Not sure what you'd do about it though (other than heavy Photoshopping). But very nice regardless.

Went down to the beach this morning, settled myself in this little corner, wrapped up the camera in a plastic bag and shot this with a 10-stop ND:

I like this photo, it doesn't look like auckland. my first thought was that it wasn't akl.

Cool. I don't mind the sign in the top right.

i will see what i can do to the sign. its something i never thought about.

Dont do nuffing, it's fine, it fits the scene. There are lots of sort of adjustments you see when other people point them out. When you work on a pic put it down for 24 hrs when you think you have finished and have a fresh look. If you are still happy go ahead and do what you intend, ie print, display, or show and ask questions.

I thought about this one and my nit pick which you can do very little about apart from crop, is the woman with the brolly could be further right and walking into the pic. However I still like the pic as much as I said originally.

Mark, I do believe the sign mentioned would be the billboard, top LEFT  :p:-P

Are phone camera pics frowned upon here? Just came back from a recent trip and haven't yet looked at the photos from the DSLR, but did record quite a collection of photos from my iPhone 6.

not at all frowned upon... pictures are pictures regardless of what's used in the process. I probably like the San Fran one best out of the selection!


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II converted for IR, and now an M5
