Went for a walk around the Melbourne Yarra River last night taking some photos of the usual suspects.

Your thoughts and comments are first photo post

Great use of the time exposure shots adds a well tried method plus a individual touch

very well done! nicely framed, great colors... I like these a lot! only criticism would be.... these are too small I have to go to Melbourne sometime... I've heard and seen wonderful things about your city.

wow! I really like dark images with lots of colors and im pretty sure im not the only one.
4. picture, the green and wide, is the one id print out and put hanging on wall.
And as for criticism, 5. picture would be very good if youd taken your time to clean that trash away. And that 6. picture with much yellow, very nice reflections on lamp posts and ghosts walking around - i dont like these ghosts very much and nex time you walk there, try shooting from somewhat different angle. Maybe close to ground and so - just an idea.
But the other pictures are very nice!

Thank you to all for sharing your comments.

Tiit - Have Photoshop the rubbish out of #5. I actually like the ghosting in #6...I took some photos without any people on the walkway, but it felt like it was missing something. Will try another angle next time.

Vagrant10 - image sizes increased. You'd love Melb...all the wonderful things you've heard are true.

I noticed that when I converted these images from Raw to Jpeg and then on to flickr, they lost a lot of detail and clarity...anyone know a way to keep IQ high when posting photos?

Wonderful shots, I especially like the 4th one of the park along the water.

Spectacular series, I especially like the first one, the tunnel and the ghosts on the bridge.

Wonderful shots. I've never tried night photography. I'll have to give it a try soon.
