On a visit to see family up to newcastle the other day, managed to persuade the gf to stand around shivering while I got the tripod out and took a few shots:-)Didn't get as many good ones as I'd hoped as a lot of the area was closed off with the Labour party spring conference security... anyway here's the best of the bunch....

Nikon D70, 18-70, Circ Polariser

Hi Jimbojetset,

your photos are excellent. I like especially the first one. What was the reason for you to used the polariser ? Here is my photo of Toronto Canada taken with

Panasonic FZ10 and tripod.

cheers guys...

Nice shot Kostka, have you made the water monochrome or is that just how it looked ? Water, bright lights and cities seem to make great subjects !

To be honest the polariser was a bit of an accident, it was left on from the last time I used the camera. I realised when I got there but remembered reading something about how they affect reflections so had a fiddle about with it - all the shots here were with itgiving as much reflection in the water as possible, although perhaps they would have been like this without the polariser, and polarisers are just used to kill reflections ?:?Have to read up on this one mithinks !

Very nice work on all shots. I'm a big fan of night photography anyway, but the effect on the water is very good in these.

I like the Toronto shot as well. I haven't had the opportunity to do a night cruise there. The landmarks look beautiful at night.

Hi Tom,

I check your galleries and I really like your photos, especially "Heading in",

"Ambassador bridge at night" and " Toronto waterfront".

Can I get the original of "Toronto waterfront"?

I like to have it on my computer as wallpaper.

Thank you very much. Kostka
