i was just playing around with reverse mounting it by just holding it there, and i realised, ontop of that, you've got to set the aperture on the lens when it's normally mounted, and then press the "aperture preview button" and as your holding it, take off the lens. i hope this is ok to do haha.

thats was piss easy :p

here's another one to guess



no cropping, i revered my 17-85. used it at about 40mm. at 17mm, the magnification is INSANE, but you practically have to have the object inside the lens and you can't get enough light.

not mine, my mum getting a snap of the grandkids, Lochy, Cam and Jasmine at port beach around sunset. I've never met any of them so I like to get the photos.

I don't know how many times I've told her about leveling the horizon... she kills so many potentially great photos with newb mistakes. She just laughs and says she likes them and that's all that matters. My mum much?

ps. another round of akko beach bums. Great granddad would be proud, little cam trooping the club colours. Quite a few years ago, that was me, my brother and my sister. Same beach. Same lady watching us. That's cool.

unlevel horizons are sooo easy to fix though n4te. just run the ruler along the horizon >roate image>arbitary and then crop it

curious as to how many of you have calibrated monitors. i calibrated mine a while back using adobe gamma and all of my photos look really nice on my monitor but when i was looking at them on my dads they looked flat and very shit. bugging the hell out of me.

nice photo too liberabit cuious as to how it would look if you burnt the bottom part though to remove the lights and then cloned out the bits where the buildings are in the clouds. still lovely though... where the clouds meet the yellow it reminds me of a watercolour painting.

he played in almost complete darkness so it was well hard to get a decent shot and even harder having to manually focus!

i'm so excited, i finally got my nokia n95 and have been trialling the camera on it

i've also currently got that set as the background on my 22" monitor and it still looks clean at 1680x1050 <3 (but cropped top and bottom obviously so it's not stretched)

bigger linky
