Hey folks.
Thank you again for all your tips and suggestions regarding recent uploads. Will keep striving to improve.
Anyway, I don't have anything interesting to show yet but I wanted to share this one. My boyfriends mate brought round his photography kit. It was a an old film camera, a Nikon, with lots of extras. I was impressed. He did have these filters however that I can use if I hold them up to the lens and shoot through them. I really like the effects. Will try and use them a bit more.
Anyway, I hope you like this. As always, all comments welcome.
Have a great day.

That's called a star filter. You can achieve a similar effect without the filter by switching to Aperture Priority (Av) or Manual and stopping the lens down to its smallest aperture (usually f16 or f22). Another one you might like to try involves zooming during the exposure. That can be spectacular with the right subject, but you need to have some means of keeping the camera still because it requires a very slow shutter speed (usually about 1/2sec).

All in all, an impressive shot, Louise, and totally different from anything else you have been doing recently. You are branching out.
