Hi folks. The light was very flat for our time in Sydney but I wanted to start with a bridge so I've done a bit of pseudo-HDR processing on this one.

Had a great time in Oz and got an awful lot of images to process as well as catching up with everyone on this site - could be sitting in front of my computer for a while. I won't tell you how hot it was down under but it's a darn sight colder in the Uk!!

Looking forward to seeing what you've all been up to...

Dave

Good to see you again. Like the pov you have chosen, and the HDR treatment is not too much, giving a pleasant effect to the image.

Welcome home to winterTongue

I've just come across this image of a bridge which was uploaded yesterday and I thought to myself, there's only one person I know that takes this type of shot mmmmmm.....reasonably well Wink. But then I thought it can't be, if they had any sense thay have kept the doors locked once he was out of the country, how wrong can one be.......Grin
Welcome back Dave, look forward to seeing some good shots over the next few weeks.
