there are worse views
really nice pic RD!
urb2004, is that your website?
ta, starting to get to grips with the compact in a trial and error kind of way
Nice picture. I also pass a castle on my commute but it is little more than a crumbling wall these days.
Bit of a grim commuting week for me so far. Wet and muddy on many parts, farm lanes in a bit of a mess and drivetrain regularly coverered in cack.
Also with the vegetation dying back the full extent of the littering and fly-tipping that is taking place these days is shamefully evident.
Nice pic, any tips for using compacts? ive got a IXUS70 and sometimes struggle to get a good light level (its either too washed out or grainy, especially at dusk)
(im doing this 365 thing too, need to sort out the begining of Jan as i was on holiday and havnt got all the pics yet http://www.flickr.com/photos/dickyelsdon/sets/72157612936627853/)
i used a 10sec shutter (no flash) as castle was about 3/4 mile away and only light was from the castle for that,apart from the tennis courts! but you've got to keep the cam rock steady (i used a bridge rail), a good tip is to use the timer option so you don't move the cam when pressing the button
ok cool, ive got a gripperpod i use for timer shots, ill give that a try tonight or tomorrow morning.
oh, cam was also on 'infinity' setting so it wouldn't auto focus in the foreground
