Last two are stunners!
Have you got any larger versions of those pics Vigil?
So I guess as a photographer, you need to be fairly brave but approachable at the same time.
These two probably
Glad you like I was lucky enough to be in amazing locations this summer. and yes I can upload larger versions if you like. What size?
probably this one from cornwall in may
I took quite a few good ones from the lake district and scotland but they are on the laptop which I cba to get out yet.
fat woman eating a souvlaki in athens next to monastiraki staion`? ^^
hehe, il give a look at my photos... 10 days in paris, 30 in athens... loads of photographs
Wow the lake district has changed quite a bit!
this has got to be one of my favorite street shots of all time. nice got a bigger one?
where is that?
Tibet I reckon. It's the Dalai Lama palace or something like that. Except Dalai Lama is in refuge in northern India because of the chinese government.
Edit: It's Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet: http://www.100gogo.com/tibet/pa1.htm (yes that's a very low-fi site )
Thanks, its upstream from Niagara Falls.
Not really artistic but we had alot of fun doing some photo sessions by the pool
The Old Man of Storr on the Isle of Skye:
I went for my first real holiday since 2005 and chose a remote part of the world to ensure nobody could contact me! I barely had 1 bar of mobile phone signal for the whole week.
Tim S, what equipment did you use to take that?
Is a fantastic shot!
A circa-1870s servant quarters in the midst of land grading and clearing in the distance. The circa-1820s mansion is just out of view.
The only 1930s-era convenient store in the entire town, amidst a growing storm.
I navigated my way up to the vantage point in <15m visibility (approx 580m up), as the Old Man was covered in cloud when I climbed up. I'd seen the weather report and it said it'd clear up in the afternoon, so I set off around 10am and when I got there at about 11:30, I roughly composed the image using my map & compass before grabbing my sandwiches and waiting for the cloud to break. Three hours later, after sitting through high winds and rain eating sandwiches and drinking tea, the cloud broke, I made some minor composition changes now that I could actually see the subject and then snapped away until I'd got a decent histogram.
The photo was taken with an EOS 450D, EF 17-40 F/4L lens @ 17mm, 1 second exposure at F/18, ISO 100 (tripod mounted of course). I also used a shoe-mount spirit level to get the horizon level and wired remote shutter release with mirror lockup to remove any potential vibrations. To bring out the 'mood' and prevent over-exposure in the sky (and to control the water reflections), I used both a polariser and a 0.9 ND grad (soft edge) filter. Thanks to whisperwolf for the strong recommendation for getting the soft edge grads - I couldn't have captured shots like this with the hard grad kit I own!!
I also used several lint-free cloths to keep the grad filter dry and free from spots of rain and a rain hood to keep the weather out of my 450D. I was cold and wet, but it was hella worth it.
