Yana with the K-1
Why do I never find a Yana cluttering up my view, when I'm oot and aboot with K1 and "Ladies".

A great couple of shoots.

I shouldn't speak for Clackers, but I suspect he didn't accidentally meet Yana on the boardwalk. I like the way the sunlight backlights her hair in the second shot. I do find the Melbourne scenery (I have never been to Melbourne, so this is only an assumption) in the background a little distracting, especially when the scenery in the foreground is so attractive.

Don't spoil it for me...

I've spent all day in the rain (that's Summer in Scotland)... looking for a Yana.

I think you should do more shots of her with every lens you own, so we can compare. The only thing I can think about her is "Above my pay grade."

Or if caught eyeballing a Yana... being murdered by the "Luverly Tess".

That also is a possibility.

Well I think the use of flash creates a very good technical exposure value balance between the foreground object and the background .....that's how I'm seeing it.

Or, another way of seeing it, Yana is ruining a perfectly good city skyline.

Yes, as pretty as she is (and with that wonderful steely at first, warm when you get to know them Russian personality), I did also want to get the great location, too. When we host the F1 Grand Prix each year it's around this lake.

Lovely shots for all the reasons mentioned. I wonder if a polarizer might have helped the second one with fewer hot spots and maybe slightly cooler blues to the sky?

IIRC, there was a CPL on the lens, MSL! Might be wrong on that, though.
