  • Bright and breezy

    back at Southwold today with work, much better than Monday, bright but breezy...took a number of shots but just couldn't see any worth posting but here are the best of the bunch...taken with my new 12-54 lens, but not sure if I am happy with the results as the clarity seems about the same as my 14-42, perhaps I am doing something wrong...??



    The same log from a different angle...


    This one was right at the end and looks as if it gets the full brunt of the incoming wind, slightly on the 'Huh' as we say in suffolk.




    the shadow effect didn't quite look right in colour so I thought it looked better in B&W... anyway i'll keep trying..

    Hi Peter.
    I like these shots (and Southwold). The beach hut on the "Huh" (we use that expression in Essex too) is good. The name on it looks as if it could be "Carl Marx" if so it's most appropriate ( leaning to the left ).

    I don't think you are doing anything "wrong" but would offer a couple of observations.
    In the first two you used a wide aperture of f3.5 which has given a shutter speed of 1/4000 in the bright conditions, a smaller aperture might have been better.
    The histograms for the first two are bunched in the middle. A tweak of the levels and a little sharpening would give more "clarity".

    Hope you don't mind but here's one I tweaked.



    I've put some others in an album in my gallery. Please say if you'd prefer I removed them all.

    Regards
    Peter

      Thanks Peter....don't mind at all...the log looks almost gold in colour which wasn't evident before I took the photo's.

      Thanks for your input i'm happy for any advice I can gain...it's all about trial and error. I'll be out and about again at the weekend camera in hand.

        Old decaying wood and tumbledown beach huts at Southwold was a milestone in my digital photography development - my first trip out with my new Digilux 2. I learnt so much from that visit and the subsequent pp and deletions that Southwold has a permanent place in my heart!
