The remains after I heavily culled the collection I took over Easter. Peppercorns: A water feature taken from outside the Crown Casino in Melbourne: Underneath an old bridge: And the area of that same bridge that most people see: I took a few other shots as well, some of them pretty decent, but I think that those -- along with the other shots I've already posted -- are the pick of the bunch. My comments: the water feature was tricky to shoot; AF was never going to be any help, as the water is too ephemeral, and the contrast insufficient for the system to pick up. Overall, though, I think they turned out reasonably well, especially since I didn't have a tripod with me at the time. The peppercorns: I actually prefered the colour in the shots I took without the flash. Trouble was, the lighting was a bit too low; I didn't have a tripod; and the camera shake was just a bit too much. The one (underexposed, bracketed) shot that was any good was also out of focus. Damnit. Above the bridge: nice enough shot, and it does convey a certain image of old times, but I have this feeling that there's something lacking. I'm not sure exactly what, though. Under the bridge: alignment was a little out, but otherwise, not a bad shot. I would have done better if I'd taken it in overcast lighting, though, I think. Anybody care to make comment?
