Default a couple of landscape pics...

Ok.. not taken in 2010 but I don;t think I posted these and I'm just waiting for the rain to stop! Both PP in LR3beta - now that I know what I'm kind of doing

1. Sunset at Southend





2. Another view of the London eye:



You can just about make the smear on the top right hand corner - its definitely not the lens, or mirror so has to be on the sensor.

Cheers

Me too. And the contrast of at least a century and a half of construction technology.

The eastern US is such a young country that you and I don't normally think to even look for that. It's much more striking in Europe.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the comments. I'm itching to get out and shoot but the weather here has just been a wee bit too cold and wet for me.

I do like how LR allows you to work easy it is to create B&W etc and if your not happy to just instantly remove the changes. The Kelby LR vido's have been really helpful in working with how to get more from the RAW files.

Now regards the ferris wheel it is a pretty big and impressive bit of engineering and yeah those are people in the pods. The other building you'd be surprised to hear is a pretty new building ! Its part of the Houses of Parliament, I had thought it was part new and part existing but according to the link below its all new! I think any new building has to match and fit in with the existing architecture anf I think they've done a pretty good job.

Cheers

Always enjoys your shots Harj. You haven't posted much lately; it's time for the weather to improve so you can get out more.

I really like that first shot, Harj. On the second shot I see a dark shadow bar on the left just about where the left most chimney is and going all the way to the top of the photo. If it was a dot I'd say sensor dust. Were you behind a window?
