Splendid sunset on this lake. Cheer.
Many thanks, David! I had just bought my new camera & was trying it out, so I was delighted to see this view emerging through the mist at 4pm on a late December evening.
I love your photos - just had time to look through the Texture series.
Thanks again for your kind comment,
What a beautiful scenery!
Many thanks, wx! I was very pleased at how this turned out. It is a delightful spot on a summer's day, too, with students sitting out having lunch on the boating lake steps. I have to say that i prefer it moody & atmospheric like this, though!
I like the monochrome look of this photo. It almost looks like an painting. It makes me feel very relaxed and at ease.
Thanks very much, Larry! I can promise you that the colour is completely untouched. It was a magical evening!
Cheers, T NL
Thanks very much for visiting, T NL, & for your kind comment!
Good colours and textures the water is of burnished Bronze.
Very many thanks, Peter!
Hi Sarah, Happy New Year,
I used to play in and around this lake as a child!
Your photo is excellent.
I am currently use a Sony Digital Compact (DSC-T1)and realised it's limitations some time ago. Your photo has almost convinced me to go and by a 35mm Digital! Must go and look around the sales whilst they're still on!
Have a great 2009..............
You're very kind, Raysalaugh, thanks very much!
This photo, though, is taken with a compact - a Panasonic DMC-LX2. It is absolutely brilliant - so many features in such a compact body, & with wide-angle lens, too - but I bought it over 2 yaers ago & I'd bet there are better compacts out there now.
I got fed up of the shutter lag, though, & it wasn't good at taking photos of kids indoors - the main focus of my photography since the birth of my son - & wanted a DSLR for litle money, so my newer photos are with a Nikon D40. Fewer MPs than this Panasonic (6, don't tell anyone), but I infinitely prefer the results, especially with flash or in low light.
It's all a question of which trade-offs you're prepared to make. Now when I handle this Panasonic I marvel at its small size & relative power - but I'd almost always rather take my Nikon in a relatively bulky case & just put up with it being bigger.
Let me know what you decide - & Hapy New(ish) 2009 to you, too!
All best wishes,
Interesting colours ...
All the best from Scotland,
