Hello from Australia

Hi Everyone,

I have been using this forum as a go to place for great advise and reviews for a while now, so decided it was high time I registered & got involved.

I purchased my first camera about 18 months ago (a K500) and have been taking plenty of photos, watching lots of tutorials trying to improve ever since.

Here are few from the last 12 months I quite like, I'm still very much a beginner, so any constructive criticism would be very much appreciated

I took this one in a hot air balloon over Bagan in Burma using a 18-55 kit lens.

This was an attempt at macro using an old 50mm prime on an extension tube. Thankfully it was a very patient dragonfly, as it took me a while to get!

The marina bay sands in Singapore at night.

Trying something I saw in a 'thatnikonguy' video in Hanoi, Vietnam

Elephants playing in a pond at the surin project.

Finally, a photo of the furry member of the family!
