Something a little different. It didn't turn out how I wanted it to, but it was an interesting experiment all the same.

    I thought for a minute that it was the Big Pineapple, but this is a real one. :-)
    Perhaps we'll see the large fake next week en route to Noosa.

    hehehe Yeah Lea said it was the Big Pineapple too, but no, this one was just a regular sized one.
    Darn clouds weren't moving as quickly as I wanted either.

    I actually thought it was the big pineapple too.

  • David de Groot said:
    Obviously deeply ingrained in the Aussie psyche ;-)
    And goes well on pizza ;-)
    Yep sure did - ND400 (8-9 stops).

    I like it. Instantly made me think of this place :-)
  • David de Groot said:
    hehehe I guess it'll get anyone that has heard of the Big Pineapple. ;-)
    hahaha that's too funny. If you're heading up to the Noosa meet next weekend, stop off at the Big Pineapple for Sundae. Then you too will know what it is ;-)
    Oh my! I'd not heard of that place before.

  • David de Groot said:
    Nah, had a portrait shoot for a family yesterday - 'twas invaluable for that.

    The "recent updates" thumbnail got me thinking Big Pineapple! :)
    What kind of effect does the moving clouds give?
  • David de Groot said:
    Well the plan was for faster moving clouds that would streak across the sky, showing the pineapple stationary and everything else moving...
  • Margot- said:
    Is that a giant pineapple?
    Hey, you bought a new camera!
    How is it?
  • David de Groot said:
    hehee No Margot, it's a normal sized pineapple, up close :)
    And yes, new camera (and lens) - absolutely awesome :)
