Because a dark morning at the train platform can be quite dull, I thought I'd take advantage of the low light with my phone camera. Was very much a spur of the moment shot, but I may have to do it properly one morning with a tripod and actually compose the shot!

Trying to make more time for photography in my busy life, and it occurred to me that in all the time I've had a DSLR, I've never made the effort to go shoot a sunset landscape! :O So here's my first attempt.

This was originally 7 bracketed shots, but I didn't want to HDR it, so I took the first normal exposure (exposed for foreground where I focused, thanks to Canon's unique metering system :/ ), and the -3EV shot near the end and just layered them with the gradient tool and a layer mask. I twiddled with them a bit in adobe RAW  first to get the colours right, but there wasn't much work to be done with the exception of trying to remove some flare I didn't spot (always check for flare when you're shooting into the sun. Never trust your hood!). Let me know if you can see it, because I still can, despite my best efforts :( Warmer clothing necessary to prevent rushing (gloves!).

Feedback always very welcome!

Little horror self portrait I stuck together today. It's fun to try something a bit less straight-faced every now and then ;)

A slight variation on my last #browars  shot for #moviemashuptuesday   curated by +Mark Rodriguez +shane holsclaw and +Isabelle Fortin. This was a lot easier, and I reckon +Brooke Purdon  is gonna like it!

After a long time away, I thought I'd try to get more active on G+, so here are a few landscape shots I took while my PC was in pieces.

Another one from tonight. I got lazy and DID use photomatix for this, but with 7 shots, it turned out surprisingly clean. I went for a more natural feel than most of my HDR shots, and I'm hoping it isn't too underwhelming. I didn't like the composition too much, hence why I didn't bother doing anything to it.

Our local curry house of choice. I've been many a time and always have been happy with the food (not the BEST curry I've ever had, but certainly decent). The service is good, and the value is unbeatable. 4 stars purely because I think the food could be marginally better, but I'm really just being picky. Very good bang for buck. Recommended.

Food was decidedly average. As a passionate fan of the burrito, I was really disappointed by the example they presented to me. The starter plate we had was decent, but the mains lacked in quality. It wasn't really bad food, but I wouldn't go back by choice. Maybe a good place for drinks at the bar though.
