As seen on the pedal home tonight...
Lens: DA40

These are pretty cliche I know, but all it looked very picturesque to me on my pedal home from work.

Thanks. Itís was fun to be able to put my K-x with DA40 in my back pocket of my cycle jersey, made it easy to snap a few photos on the way home. Sometimes having a small camera and lens is a big advantage.

Twitch, I see the rowers most days on the Yarra river and it's still has that serenity feeling about those photos.
Gotta love the feel of Melbourne this time of the year.

These are not cliche pictures, I think it was a very clever use of an ominous, black city background setting off the quiet beauty of the river, the sky and the rower. Nice job.

First one is very nice - wish I'd have taken it with my DA 40.

Me and my DA40 had a bit of rocky start while I got use to the focal length and couldn't get a decent picture for the first couple of weeks, now I'm use to it and love it.
