Old shearing shed in Omeo, Victoria Australia. Shooting into the sun is always a challenge. This is a composite of 5 exposures to get the detail in the shadow of the shed as well as the detail of the hills and sun. I quite like the lens flare in this shot so was happy to leave the composition as it was and include in the shot.

Seal at the wharf in Marlo, Victoria, Australia.

I think he looks like a Wilbur, what do you think? This seal just hangs out at the wharf eating the left overs from the fisherman. It's a lazy old life and he seems to love it. 

 


Yacht Club - Hamilton Island

The Yacht Club looks spectacular at night. This image was taken at 17mm f8 for 30 seconds.

17mm is a nice wide angle to capture the building in its environment. It also gives a larger depth of field.

F8 gives a decent depth of field given the wide angle lens. Ideally I would have shot this around f10 however that would have required a longer shutter speed.

30sec is the max shutter speed you can use on camera without using a cable release or connecting to my phone. I have no idea why they limit it to this, seems like it would be simple to allow you to extend into the minutes. If I had of remembered/been bothered to get out my cable release I would have shot this at ISO100 instead of 640 and at f10.

Well there you go, a slightly lazy shot is better than non at all right? Hope you liked the shot and enjoyed the read.
