I've waited months to get this shot - there is a 3-4 week period twice a year when things line up! Same spot up on Studley Park Road that I have used previously. I was hoping desperately that the cloud didn't thicken as I drove over.
I might post a few more once I get through reviewing them.
A few week ago my wife and I spent a few days in Madrid/Spain. I like this city a lot, it felt really authentic Spanish. Not flooded with tourists and lots of interesting places to visit. Plus great food!
I took a compact gear set with me, an Olympus E-M10II camera with Olympus 12-40mm lens and a Samyang fisheye lens. All images processed in Capture One Pro from RAW.
1. Fisheye view from the rooftop bar at 26th floor of our hotel
2. And a "normal" view
3. For fun, shot with in-camera Key Line Art Filter
4. Fisheye view of the ceiling of the Cathedral of Saint Mary the Royal of La Almudena
This morning I found a bit of time and managed to get back to a location overlooking the Melbourne skyline to try and recreate some shots I took a little of 8 years ago. The comparisons are interesting both in the changes in the cityscape and in the cameras available to me.
This was the original shot I wanted to recreate - a crop from a 6Mpixel image taken with a Nikon D50 and 18-55
And the newer image - a slight crop of a 24Mpixel image taken with a Fuji X-E3 and 18-55.
Old down town San Diego, a very nice setup
with stores / museums of how it was in the late 1800's early 1900's in this area
Cigar store - not sure someone would have a dedicated tobacco store in that time but the ambiance of this store was particularly nice, I do not smoke and yet found the smell quite attractive, while my wife could not get in ...
2. cashier at the visitor center, knitting something , oblivious of the people going back and forth, had to shoot between a gap of the passing tourists
3. General store, the countertop is way to modern looking, she moved away a modern coffee pot for the picture and I like her outfit
4. fine goods -
5. Spinning wool
6. a complete explanation was given by him on how people made yarn from wool, cotton threads, used linen , the whole process , quite interesting
