AAAhh Lowestoft. I know it well, I'm from Ipswich. :D

I really like your photos Richard. I think you've got the time of day spot on and the lighting is really fantastic, especially in photos 2 and 4! I think you've done a great job of making something really run down look beautiful so well done!

Welcome to the forum Richard, the last one seems perfect lighting for the clouds, would suggest using some -EV for blown out skies like #3

Cheers

Thanks for the advice 4xxxx, the problem is I don't know what you mean. lol. Sorry, I am a rank amateur.

I should also point out I use a superzoom (Finepix S2000HD) not a DSLR, so I do not have huge amounts of control. I do always use it on manual, but this only gives me control over the shutter speed and the aperture.

I found a picture of your camera, on the back bottom right hand corner, a black and white button with +/- on it, this controls the amount of EV. -EV reduces the amount of blow out in the sky, makes the sky blue instead out white. Have a look on the forum at the tutorials for more info on + and - EV and its effect .

Cheers

Love shot 3. The colour is doing it for me! And the last one. Which doesn't mean that the other pictures aren't good.

I like it. Is the harbour any big or was that it? Never been to Lowestoft.

Thanks Cris.

There is more harbour, but it's still used, so I can't get on it to photograph. Mind you it's a shadow of what it was when I was a kid, the fishing industry is all but gone.
