    Had a wander up to Edinburgh with photosoc this weekend - really nice city and had a pretty good time, alas not that much picture taking went down... :) Couple of them look a bit washed out when looking at them on my lappy, maybe my monitor on my main box isn't calibrated, I dunno :/

    The HDR treatment really works well on those, very nice shots.

    #5 is the winner for me. The composition is great, the subject matter is interesting to look at, and the exposure is well done. This is one of the better HDR treatments I've seen in this forum.

    #6 is a pretty cool abstract shot. It would make a fantastic desktop.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Be nice to it. Remember, as with all delicate electronics; garbage in-garbage out. The E550's 6mp should be more then enough to get a photo like this. You would need a light tripod and some patience, but I got great stuff from my Canon SD400. Provided I had the time and will.

    oh, and I also like the pictures.

    Thanks all :)

    A tripod isn't that essential - I do all my stuff handheld because I've not got round to buying a tripod yet and they can be a bit of a bugger to carry.

    I love the photo's although your Scottish Parliment one is a little flat. Its a shame they spent half a billion pounds on a building which only really has one interesting part to photograph. :p Did you take any photo's of Dynamic Earth, the building opposite?

    Good work with the HDR too, it bring out the details with out being too in your face. :thumb:

    Yeah, the parliament buildings are alright inside, but they're a bit dark and I didn't have a tripod so there wasn't much I could do.

    Didn't get any of Dynamic Earth that were any good but I'm going there again this weekend so I might take my camera up.

    They wont let you take photo's inside which is a bit cheeky as my taxes will be paying for the thing for the rest of my life. :) I would recommend a walk around Greyfriars kirk yard too, i got some great shots there. Across the road from there is the museum of scotland, which is free to get into the and the central atrium is quite impressive.

    I like the shot of the Scottish Parliament you got in #6, well worth the extra few hundred million we payed for it. Hope you liked Edinburgh, it is a really beautiful City, although I prefer Glasgow for shopping.
