Slacking again in my posts, but I have been busy. Apart from work, I have been taking plenty of pictures & I will be sharing again soon. This shot was London at sunrise, taken whilst doing the recent London Nightrider challenge.
Nightrider is a 100km ride through London & the other reason for being a little slack on the posts. Training was definitely necessary. A great challenge & it was completed in style – even if I do say so myself.
More to follow soon & I’ll catch up with everyones else’s posts as well. Take care all.
Now, my aim with these pictures was to get the moon nicely reflecting on the sea which I thought would look good. With my sunset pictures, a moving ship didn’t seem to be a problem. I even planned ahead, as I brought the tripod so I could take just this picture. Slower shutter speed due to less light, sat on tripod, no problem.
I forgot the part about the ship moving!! I also failed to swap the lens & stayed with my faithful 24-105 so I didn’t really get a large moon shot either. I suppose I did manage to get the sea smooth which was something but not quite what I was after.
I thought a tungsten setting may help add a little creativity. I actually like the colours, but its still not perfect.
Time to reach for the manual. Where did I go wrong?
One ideal thing about cruising holidays is the opportunity to take a sunset at sea. Whilst this was an early sunset shot, I just love the reflection of the sun in the sea. The light looked fantastic. I captured quite a few sunsets this time.
I’m going to post a few of these over the next couple of nights. Then I’ll share a few moon shots as well. I’d love to get some comments on them. Capturing sun at sea appears to work, moon shots at sea, well wait & see. OMG!!!!
