Shorncliffe Art

or what passes for a sun shelter in eastern Brisbane....

This didn't turn out how I wanted it to, but I guess you can't have everything.

See where this picture was taken.

    i thought for a minute this was an extreme fish-eye... or is it?
  • David de Groot said:
    Well there is a little distortion, as I was using the 10-20mm lens at 10mm and aiming upwards, but it's not a fisheye, these structures are really curved.

    Nice shot David. Hope your meetup went well. I thought about it but the 5am start was a bit early for me.
  • David de Groot said:
    Ah ya slacker ;-) Besides, 5am is when you'd have to be there, there's getting up and travel time before that. We left my place at a titch before 4am.

    wow, love the colours...great to see you up so early
  • yinyang said:
    lovely colours...but i suppose that's a dawn thing!!
  • rumblemumbles said:
    great colours....makes it much more interesting than if this had been shot during the normal hours of the day for a normal person :)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks John. Yeah, stayed up all night, 'twas easier than trying to get up at 3am.

    It is indeed - worth seeing at least once ;-)

    Normal person indeed! :-P

    Staying up all night to prepare for an early morning photo-shoot is the definition of the word "dedication"!! Great shot David... the awesome light really makes this one!!
  • David de Groot said:
    Yep, that's me ;-) Dawn is such a nasty time to have to get up for, so it's easier to see it if one doesn't go to sleep in the first place ;-)

    I like it...

    With winter coming you won't have to get up as early.
    That's a plus isn't it?
  • David de Groot said:
    Goes both ways - it's not as early, but it's a lot colder !

    I like the lines in this one. Think it works pretty well.

    Thanks, I'm still not 100% happy with it though.
