    Nice shots mate, you did really well on the move!

    Some nice shots from Q1 too Craig! My only tip would be to pay careful attention to the horizon and try to make sure you have it level in your shot. Unless you're trying to be particularly arty of course That and get a tripod for the night shots. I like the last one.
    I actually was with a pro photographer that day and I was using his tripod. Everything was taken with a 70mm zoom. I will try and get more photos from Japan and Vietnam up in the next few days.

    BTW Heef, nice photos, especially the bird (what type is it) one. I'm surprised you were able to get such a close up. Where you using your big lenses to take those photos?

    A 1/1600 exposure though is quite a short one, which suggests (as your camera was on auto) that the light conditions were pretty good.

    The f number is a bit more complicated to explain, but I think (in my knowledge as a layman) generally equates to sharpness of the picture. You will generally have a better sharpness of image and resolution if you are able to use a lower f number. I think it equates to how much light you are able to get into the camera in a particular exposure and is a factor of lens diameter and focal length of the length.

    I think you can get quite low f numbers in short focal length lenses, but the really expensive lenses will have a long focal length (and thus "zoom") but still have a low f number.
    Yeah, it's hard to explain but basically a lower 'f' no. (Like 2.8) will see less of the shot in focus than a higher 'f' no (like 22) as far as I understand it
    (It's called 'Depth of Field' I think). So if you were shooting a portrait and you wanted the background blurred out you'd shot with a low f no. like 2.8. If you're shooting something where you want as much of the shot in focus as possible then you'd go higher into the 10's-20's etc. In low light though you need a tripod or a nice solid wall if you're going to use high aperture no's as you're letting less light into the camera than with low no's like f2.8.

    Basically you balance your aperture with your shutter speed to get the shot you want under the conditions I think.

    Or something like that Saw a good diagram to explain it on a camera forum, I'll post it if I can find it again this weekend.

    I thought the last one looked pretty clear. Another tip is if you're taking shots from a tripod and you don't have a remote switch use the timer setting on the camera so it has time to settle after you've pressed the shutter release button. I use the 10 sec timer when I have the time so it can stop shaking before it takes the shot.

    Liking the first one heef.

    That's interesting re aperture. I'm pretty sure there is a way to change that but don't have the camera handy to check. Also interesting about higher aperture. The following picture was taken with at f/7.1, twice as much as the sunset pic. Wonder what made the camera decide that.

    RIP Craigos

    It might be because you're not moving in that picture (I assume haha) and so the camera could balance a lower shutter speed with a higher aperture to take the shot. In the first sunset from a moving vehicle the focus points may have picked up on movement in the frame and decided you needed to let as much light in as possible to allow you to shoot at a high shutter speed. If you took the first shot standing still you might get different settings again.

    That might be completely wrong, but I think that's how it would work.

    The last one I posted, I took about 7 or 8 photos and using the remote switch, just to try and get it right.

    Yeah we have lots of canels on the Gold Coast. Nothing like Venice of course. That said I wouldn't swim in the canels either, unless getting attacked by a Bull Shark is your thing

    I had no idea about those. I'm a sucker for cityscapes, I love those you've taken.

    Thanks. The 3rd photo I posted up is my current desktop The photos were taken 230m up! (link)

    Some more from a town called Hue, about the half way point between Hanoi and Saigon (used to be where the old border was for North and South Vietnam).

    A few pics from canon I took during the last couple of months. It includes one in HDR, one from a village and a mosque in Lahore.






    Wasim Akram: The most sKiLlFuL bowler in history!

    Mcgrath said he is fond of the genius "Akram would power through the crease and do whatever he wanted with the old and new ball"

    Allan Border "If I ever get a chance to be reborn as a cricketer, I would want to be Wasim"

    Richards, Tendulkar and Waugh described Akram as the most dangerous bowler they had ever faced.
