Well after nicely asking and being left to go it alone, I went out for another night of photography.

I ran into a Canonite and a Nikonian at some of my spots, then later one of my work colleagues joined me, he is a Nikonian and had his D50 (we won't hold that against him).

Started the evening off at the beach, hard to get a good water shot when you can't see it.
Tokina 17mm f/3.5 10sec ISO400


Stopped off at the old Brewery site, Not 100% sure I like this shot.
Tokina 17mm f/3.5 at ISO400 f/8 20secs


The Barrack Street Jetty.
Pentax 50mm f/1.7 ISO400 4 secs


The Bell Tower
Pentax 50mm f/1.7 ISO400 4 secs


Tokina 17mm f/3.5 at f/5.6 ISO400 20secs


And lastly up into Kings Park for a look south onto the Kwinana Freeway.
Tamron 200-500 f/5.6 SP at 220mm, f8 ISO400, 8 secs, this is one sharp lens.

wow, beautiful shots! the second last one is my favorite. did you do any post processing? if so what? they are amazingly noiseless. what kind of tripod do you use?

again nice shots.

That outing was really worthwile! I think all of them are hits, difficult light but you really made it. Thanks for posting! Give someone a reason to pay my air ticketsand I'll show up next time!

BTW, it seems like Perth is the capital of Pentaxland. There are just as many of you in this forum asmembers fromthe whole of non-British Europe.

ok feeling real guilty here (maybe, nearly, sort of)

you did get some very nice photos

what beach did you start at?

you seem to have walked a long long long way from the brewery to the bell tower then up the hill to Kings park, thats quite a hike

i like the effect on the lights in the last photo, not the usual looking star pointy things

Tripod is an Optex T265, nothing flash and at its limit with the Tamron lens on it :-)

The Tokina 17mm Lens just takes great shots. A little contrast adjust and that is about it, no noise reduction, the area was quite well lit.

Gumnut, as I was on my own I decided to move about a bit, I went to Cottesloe just after sunset. I only chose The Cott because there was the pylon out in the after I was hoping to shoot, but I wasn'y happy with the results.

That Tamron SP lens is so sharp.

This is from Kings Park down to the South Perth side of the Narrrows, I reckon I might just be able to get his rego# :lol::lol:

500mm f5/6 8 secs ISO400

Crash, love your photos. You really get some nice ones with that 17mm lens of yours....I like the 1st one best. Is thethe light in the bottom left from a flash?

Looking forwardto some more surf shots from Cottesloe. Perhaps you can use that big lens of yours to shoot a passing Great White in the surf....
