While waiting for the bus this afternoon the sun and clouds offered me this HDR opportunity. Re-edited in Snapseed.

Complete with factory ghost. :)

Shot while in the grip of a terrible headache, in a desperate desire to do something positive with the day. Edited the following day in Snapseed while on the train home from work.

I've organised a free photowalk along the Cottesloe foreshore on the afternoon of June 27. If you've got an interest in photography, or just want an excuse to take some winter sea-side photos, this will be a lot of fun!
Rob Masters originally shared:
 
Free Cottesloe Photowalk - Supported by +Dots To Spots Printing and Camera Electronic ( http://www.cameraelectronic.com.au ).

A social Photowalk along the Cottesloe foreshore from Grant St to the Cottesloe Groyne. This is for photographers of all levels, and will be a lot of fun.

We will be starting from the Grant Marine Park, near the corner of Marine Pde and Grant St, and finishing near the Surf Lifesaving Club. After, we can retire to either the OBH or the Cottesloe Hotel to chat and compare notes.

A map of our route is here:
https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=z0azKEDbGFZc.k38OfhzwQM60&usp=sharing

Cottesloe offers all sorts of opportunities for subjects - some great buildings, stunning seaside geography, ships and boats of all sizes, street photography, birdlife (keep your eyes peeled for the Sea Eagle that hunts around the area), and the amazing sunset as we wind up.

Also, Dan from Camera Electronic will be helping out through the afternoon, and will have gear available to demo and for participants to try out.

There will be two contests running - one for the Best Architectural Photo and one for the Best Photo of Water. The contests are being judged by Dick from Camera Electronic, and the prize for each is a 16"x24" print of your choice - delivered to you - from the wonderful folks at Dots to Spots Printing. 

Contest Details: 
Photos should be (ideally) posted to the Google+ Event page (url to follow), or, if you do not have a Google account, emailed to rdmasters@gmail.com for me to post on your behalf. Other entry methods may become available - watch this space for more information. The deadline for the entries is 5PM AWST June 4, and winners will be announced on June 11, and will be notified by email. Winners will have until 5PM AWST June 18 to claim their prizes.

Moonshot.

F11 1/200s ISO100 Samsung NX1, and a Vivitar 500mm lens, jpeg, edited in +Snapseed​ to boost contrast, structure, and to process to monochrome. I'll play with the raw later.

Fun fact: Unlike the NX300, the NX1 supports focus peaking on manual lenses.

Story
Tagline
SF Fan, Gamer, Kayaker, KoLer, Disc Golfer, Rock-climber, Sysadmin ... Just your usual geek.
Introduction

Born and raised in the West, grew up sailing on the river and reading of other worlds. Discovered computers too early, and became first an operator, then a programmer, next an analyst, then a DBA, and now a sysadmin.

Spends his spare time play boardgames, KoL (where he is known as The Grey Mauser), kayaking, reading SF&F, RPGing with his friends, and playing the odd round of disc golf.

He also rides a recumbent trike, and has been known to rock-climb, birdwatch, and geocache.


 

Bragging rights
Sailed an open boat on the open sea, designed and built a mach .9 craft, filmed an air-crash (with no casualties), and (most importantly) married a wonderfully brilliant artist.
