Absabloominfabulous Dianne, this image is stunning, the reflections superb! Definitely not one for the B&W today!! I forgot to say yesterday, that I usually shoot in colour and convert to black & white in Picasa, then have a bit of a play around.

Carole Meisenhelter said...

now THERE'S a picture and a half! I delight in this photograph you've taken on the Torren's river. You must've gotten such a buzz when you saw the results on your monitor.

Beautiful shot.
Sydney - City and Suburbs

Ann said...

the deep orange is beautiful. Are you still using the point & shoot?

Dianne said...

Ann:- Yes!! Still point & shoot - why am I procrastinating about a new camera purchase I should just bite the bullet and buy it!!

Valerie said...

I concur with all the comments above Dianne - just a wonderful, wonderful capture; rich colours and love the wavy reflections!

Arija said...

That is a spectacular shot Dianne!

Hi Dianne,

having had both the Nikon D40 and now the Canon, there are a few points of difference,
Unfortunately my Nikon is still in for repairs or you could try out both at the same time but I am happy to get together and let you have a play with my Canon so you see what it feels lie in the hand and what it's capabilities are. I chose the Emron 18-270mm lens for the greater range it gave me and was surprised at the optical quality in comparison to the Nikon 300mm.
There are +'s and -'s in each camera and in the end it comes down to personal preference.

The main thing is to get the greatest capacity memory card if you want to shoot at the highest resolution or make video clips. I know they are expensive but also well worth it.
When I bought mine at Ted's in Rundle St., I though tI got the biggest one available but my son (a professional Photographer) told me there was a 64G available (if I am not mistaken) so I want to head into town one day anyway to get one and also investigate monopods and if you would like, we could meet up at the Bot. Gardens and have some photographic fun together.

Regards . . . Arija

Beautiful meeting of daylight and night! Love the perspective of the bridge and water reflections!

Jack said...

Well done, Dianne. You caught the light at a good time and you composed the photo in a way that leads the eye through it.

Joe said...

Top shot Dianne. "Rich" is certainly the word to describe those warm colours you have captured in the bridge. Congrats.

Joan Elizabeth said...

Love the title to go with this post.

Fantastic photo!

Dianne said...

Arija:- That would be wonderful if you could spare some time - I don't know why my e-mail didn't work but please try it again as I don't have your contact info. puddinglane@optusnet.com.au

Ann said...

Further to Arja's comment - I also use a Tamron 18-270 most of the time. Its a little soft at maximum zoom but the quality overall is good for something with that range. It means you can travel with just the one lens. Only downside is its quite a slow lens so not good in low light although the performance at high ISOs on the new cameras compensates for that a lot.

Dianne said...

Ann... Thanks - using different lens is going to be new to me but I'm sure will open up a whole new world.

The colour is so rich and the ripply reflections are super. Great shot with a P&S. (Maybe you don't need a big camera) Go Canon if you do.

Kath Lockett said...

Hi there, I've wandered over and am very glad I did.

...*sniffle* but it does make me feel homesick - I can imagine walking across this bridge to head to the oval with my Dad on a warm summer's evening! *sniffle*
