Moving away from Africa for a bit - here's one taken in Brisbane last week. The eternal flame at the ANZAC (Australia and New Zealand Army Corps) memorial.. It was ripe for an HDR/LDR (thanks Atha) kind off pp, so here it is.

1/15 @f10, ISO100 and 10mm focal length.

I'll have to catch up with the critiquing later - it's a busy time at the moment..

An effective wide shot David, Great POV and nice play of light and shadows here. Am not sure about the PP as I can see there is a bit overdone in the part of clouds but anyway nice to hear you're learning new thing and techniques in terms of PP aside from what usually you're doing.


Your Photos are always heart stopping David! MAN! I love the effect here! The extreme wide angle is just intense here! Your colors are grand at F10! 1/15 sec? Hand held? Hands of steel! Just beautiful, the tan and blue and nice complimentary colors!

Hi David,
The wide angle gives a terrific effect at this place!
The repetitives curved lines and the play of shadows on the floor compose a dynamic image.
Excellent work! Annie

Great shot! Love the goofy distortion .. makes me just a tad dizzy:) Great composition and view, to see the buildings and sky behind.
Very nice David

Very well done, David.
The polarizer has worked well giving the sky a nice deep shade of blue - a very eye-catching shot

Hi David,

Excellent architectural shot, very interesting details of the
columns. Very good metering and exposure, excellent sharpness.


Hi David,

this image stands out in many ways: great pov, beautiful colors, very good contrast.
I tried a custom grayscale conversion and posted it to the ws - feedback welcome :)

TFS and regards,

David, you sure get around! Do you have your own private jet??? Great use of the ultra wide lens here. Also great detail from the highlights to shadows.
