Don't worry Nige. I like the way ya muck around with your pics. Ya gotta expect to cop a bit of heat from Revo, cos he's so super onto it :!: :wink:

Not really back on topic. I took this shot y'day, and really like the way the spray shows up against the cliff. I'll admit, I even tried to improve the pic with a bit of post processing (don't crucify me Rev), but really had no idea. I coulda got some really good shots if I could be bothered playing with camera settings. It was kinda difficult shooting straight into the sun.

I wasnt having a go at you. I like the shots and the effect works for a few of them... just adding my two cents.

Oh and ive kept putting off the camera for numerous reasons, i.e. ive gotta save up for a new computer (which is hard when i keep going on holidays :oops: ) because the old family one cant run basic programs and has zero memory to store photo's so basically only DSLR stuff i do is with my mates camera or for my course.

I like the picture , but the text doesn't flow naturally, but i wouldn't know what to recommend in its place.

I was hoping to see some more Bondi bowl photo's. This arvo's session was all time.
If it feels good, do it.

Salts, i think this was my fav choice from memory?? Pretty much technically perfect. The text is too aggressive and spoils the shot. There would be a more appropriate choice for font.

Yeah, that would be one of the very rare occasions that you'd be happy to have the ski in the shot. It privides the scale to actually see how solid that wave is. Otherwise as Salts mentioned, it woulda looked like your garden variety 3ft reef slab.

The Tigress has turned into a bit of a bird nerd, it's one of those things that happen to you when you live out in the sticks. You always know when something out of the ordinary is around. There's a large family of Noisy Miners that live amongst the trees on our property, and they go apeshit whenever something that could potentially eat them or their babies is around. It's usually a snake, or monitor lizard, or a tawny frogmouth. In this case it was a family of Crested Hawks. The Tigress snapped off a couple of pics of them, that I quite like. As much of a pain in the arse type birds those noisy miners are, I'm glad they alert us to come out and check out wildlife we otherwise woulda missed.

Crows are weird aren't they? They're so bad-ass, evil and vacant looking. I don't know if they just get a bad rap, but most people don't like 'em.

Tigress aint a fan of 'em. And the noisy miners fcukin' hate 'em, reckon they've seen the truly evil side of the crow.
