I used a Canon 60D and a Tamron Lens 18-270mm. I took the image on 18/10/2012 in the afternoon in my back yard. I hand held the camera. It was shot at f/5.6, exposure 1/60 second, ISO 160, and focal length was 84mm.
Canola near Goran Lake, Spring Ridge. I shot this with a Samsung Galaxy Note2 on the way to a breakfast meeting back in Sept 2012.
“Magical Sun Kisses”
First time seeing real snow. Came across this just before sunset. Started out shooting in Manual & Aperture modes, but light was changing every few seconds & was just too cold to be standing still adjusting settings, so switched to semi-auto mode & let camera do its thing. No lens hood, but sun flares hitting the snow was so captivating. Shielded with my hand as best I could, kept snapping & hoped for the best until my fingers were so cold they refused to depress the shutter again! Happiest with this one, less lens flare than the many others. Cropped panorama-style because I liked the look of it (& to avoid a distracting flare in foreground I didn’t know how to edit!)
“Sunrise at Pensioners” Nick Clark
Canon 550d, f22, 1/30 second, ISO 100. I used f22 to get the pointed star effect. I was looking for something simple for the foreground and found the chair which I’ve tried to silhouette against the colours of the sky.
“Kieth Urban Lights My Fuse” Dee Woodward WINNER!
This photo was taken last winter at Narrabri. Keith Urban toured Narrabri’s part of his “Light my fuse” tour, and I was lucky enough to get tickets and up close to the stage as I am a huge Keith fan. The night was freezing, but very much worth it. Was a fantastic experience, one I would love to repeat.
