Clouds's Pictures


Bricks and Birds
Bricks and Birds (QTEK 9100)

I must admit I have tried to get a picture of birds flying for a while and I set the QTEK9100 to Sports and it was rubbish, and then set it to Burst and it did the job. Not that either mode was right (sports mode is just the same as burst except when you release the picture button burst stops, sports carries on until the end of the pre-defined setting).

This reminds me of Heligan Gardens where I saw a Dove flapping. If I had the time I would have camped out with my Mintolta, tripod and zoom lens but no. Instead we get this; which is pretty good (I think) as they flock around and around but nothing as impressive as I could get with a better camera. Donít get me wrong I like this one.

It's not a bad shot I think but I sometimes think the scatter-gun approach to photography is poor.

Llandudno Pier
Llandudno Pier (Nisis DV5)

A picture of Llandudno Pier last weekend. The sun was out the arcade was full of... OK games and the promanade was good. After a relaxing day there was nothing better than watching my brother and his wife trying to fold a popup tend back into the bag.

The Drive
The Drive (Nisis DV5)

I don't know why but I love this drive thing at Dunham Massey, perhaps it's because it reminds me of a Stephen Poliakoff screenplay, which I think was Perfect Strangers, however I could be wrong. Either way the picture doesn't really live up to what was there because the sun was in front of me and there is no way to control the exposure with the DV5. However where the detail on the ground is missing due to under exposed the clouds do look slightly menacing which I like, so I kept it. I did take another one in landscape and because this took in less bright sky the ground was less under exposed and looked better. The problem with that shot is that it looked so bland.

The Tree
The Tree (Nisis DV5)

This is the tree that had the plaque under it. I didn't know whether it would come out that well what with the LCD screen causing problems with the low sun. I think the sky came out quite well and for a hit and miss shot I think it works well.

On Reflection
On Reflection (Nisis DV5)

A crane in the centre of Manchester taken from as a reflection from Malmaisonís window, you can see the blinds if you look close. What you can also see is where the brightest bit of the sun is. There was a black spot in the sun on the photo due to the cameras detector getting saturated by the brightness of the sun. This has been edited out.
