How do you find these amazing shots Sam?. Its just another of your captivating photos.. For some reason upon seeing this shot I am thinking of the film Mad Max 2... Cheers, ~Lex

This looks something like out of a Mad Max film. Greatly evocative. Like it.

Absolutely remarkable photo - whether viewed small or large. I notice you are using a Canon now - 21.1 Mpix! I can't imagine what the file size of this photo original must have been. Regards, JT.

Compliments of the season to you and Beverley too Sam. Its a dramatic scene mate, its not so long since we thought we would never see it again but here she is in all her glory.

Happy new camera mate, just think...tha might be able to do a lot better when tha's larn't drive it proper like;-))....Who said that!!!

I wondered which you would go for mate...good choice.

Lex & KC it sure is apocolyptic so no surprise to see that Mad Max comes to mind. Andy, I'm hoping it's onward and upward this year, having served my apprenticeship I've finally got proper tools to do the job and new impetus as a result. JT, file size does appear to be the only drawback but I'm not complaining at all :o). The original of this is tiny at 10.739 x 5073 pixels and 44.2 MB when compared to the huge dimensions of this one which weighs in at 28,470 x8063 and 232MB. I can see some extra hard drive space will be my next purchase.

Neil, I wondered if you'd spot the change :o) Hopefully as a result of the image quality but as you say I have to get the hang of it first and find my way round the menus and buttons. I goofed initially with these first few images because I'd missed that it was on auto iso. I'll tell you the tale later about the switch to Canon which as you know was always my hope one day :o).

Many thanks to you all for the comments and encouragement.

best wishes, Sam :o)

Superb photo Sam. I appreciate the contrast between background and foreground. What are the huts used for? Regards Derek

I'm hoping so Ian, having learned the ropes with my little Nikon I feel more able to handle the new toy, it's like going from a pick up to a luxury sports car and I'm liking the ride so far :o)

Derek, the huts are used by the owners of the boats seen in this shot.

Pleased to know you have enjoyed both, many thanks for stopping by to comment.

Truly a magnificent image Sam - I had to come back in daylight to make sure it was as good as the first time round.

It is!

Brilliant work that man - Jethro

Can't have been too blustery, the smoke and steam rising amost straight up. One could almost imagine those huts being there for the workers. Stunning image.

Very nice shot! LIKE. Greetings,

Super work Sam, like the composition. I wonder whether cropping the foreground slightly might have enhanced the picture, as I don't think the bold patch of ground lower right is adding anything. You could still keep the first hut as the lead in. Just a suggestion. Regards Stuart
