Another seascape from Manly.
I used a CPL and an ND grad hard edge.

Nice one :)
Was the sun just about to rise or had it just set? The orange glow is what suggests either, but I don't know :|

I can't compete with the sun and the beautiful landscapes, but a cold, cloudy day has a beauty all its own. I caught this just seconds before the sun broke through the clouds. The leaves are all gone now and snow was threatening...

It has a gloomy feeling that makes it stand out in my opinion, nice shot :)

Thanks mate, it was taken at sunset.
I've never been up early enough to snap a sunrise. :)

Here's a sunrise one for you, just so you know what one looks like (actually didn't catch the sun, but the color on the ice is nice... :)

Looking across Windermere from a nearby track. The lake is under the mist - again! Actually took the pic in October. This is a crop from a portrait-orientated take because I liked the colours enough to want it to fill the screen as desktop wallpaper. D600/70-300mmVR Nikkor at 125mm/f11 at 1/50th second/ISO 100. Hand held.

Nice picture, Steve. Somehow I thought the trees in Sydney would look different from the ones that grow here. The trees here are bare now and the ground is covered with snow. I'm trying to upload some pictures to Photobucket, but am not having any luck today. But comparing our summer with your winter, here's a picture from here that compares to your winter scene.

X, I looked at your camera review from DPreviw and a few shots. These looked pretty good to me. What made me look is your shots always look crazed and out of focus to me. It reminds me of someone who asked me to look at their camera and found the lens with finger prints and the like, once cleaned it was ok.

I’m not saying your lens is dirty but from what I've seen that camera will produce better shots, I would suggest having a look at the photography tips for landscapes.

Hope you take this opinion in the spirit it was given.


Cheers

Thanks, 4xxxx. I do appreciate the comments and the tips. I know my pictures aren't at the same level as the rest here yet, but I do hope they will be improving before long. I just recently learned the difference between the digital zoom and the optical zoom. Most of the pictures I posted (including this last one) were taken with the digital zoom. And I am now working with the shutter speeds and f stops (up until recently, everything was on auto.) I do apologize for not having great pictures yet, but I came here to learn. You and the others here have some great pictures, and tons of tips, and I have learned more in the last two months than I did in the last year on my own. Thanks!
