New User - Australia day photos
Posted By: goddo31, 02-19-2009, 08:24 PM

Hi All,

I am a new user here and was encouraged to post some of my photos in the welcome thread.
I'm a little bit 'nervous' due to the high quality of pictures posted here, but thought I would give it a go. CC is most welcome.

Here are some pics taken from Australia day (26 Jan) this year, from Mindarie Marina here in Perth, Western Australia. At this stage my K200D was only a few days old..

View of the packed Marina late afternoon

Fireworks later that night

Fireworks were done with a tripod and 30sec shutter. All with K200D and 18-55mm kit lens

I really like the fireworks images. So well composed and balanced, even for the colours.
