This was taken while trying out some Kenko extension tubes. I used some fill flash to try and eliminate some shadows but left the ISO too high and overexposed the petals. I kinda like the end result though as it emphasises the centre more.
I just got my first Corkin filters and thought I might go make the best of a good sunset. I headed out to the coast and took a bunch of different shots, this one caught my eye as I went back through my camera. I hope you like it!
I bought a new camera over the weekend (upgraded from a 350D to a 40D) and took it out for a test drive today. The sunset was muted due to the cloud cover, but I still got some amazing colours out of the camera (this image has very little post processing). Unfortauntely it was a bit windy so there's some motion blur in the foreground, but I'm still pretty happy with it. Taken at Ambury Park, Auckland.
I wanted to create an image with the feeling of a dream. I mean, when you look at the landscape and everything is perfect and you want to be there to feel free a.s.o. And capturing the moment of a falling star makes the title of it.
For some reason I really like this photo as a wallpaper. The fact that it's out of focus allows your icons to really look like they are in foreground. Oh and it just looks so damn bright and happy. Enjoy!
