    Hoozah: the sunset is pretty enough, but 1) are those your fingers on the right blocking part of the lens? 2) as you can see, the sunset is clearly visible (though really white at some points) but the buildings and the street aren't. That's because your camera just can't see as much contrast as you do. Now, there are some people who like this look as it is, but I would advocate showing more of the sky and less street in that case because the sky is really what you want to show then. Another option is to place a graduated filter over your lens, that looks like this:

    What it does, is make the camera think that the top half is darker than it actually is, which allows you get detail in both the sky and the street. (that's not my picture by the way)

    Another option is to make an HDR: you take several pictures, one is the normal exposure, another -1 or -2 stop which shows the details in the lighter areas and a final one +1 or +2 which shows details in the shadow areas. You then combine the pictures in software on your computer (photoshop, photomatrix): (my picture)

    Well... you can get a lens mount for an iPhone and that can allow you to use one of those filters...

    lol I figured they'd have something like that seeing how they have the adapter to put on a huge telezoom.. seems a bit ridiculous. On another note I got some smith-victor continuous lights on rental today to play with :)

    Don't know what to make of it NOBD - it's all a little bland and gray and there's nothing really to catch the eye. What was your plan with this shot?

    Good question, Kas. I'm not sure myself, but I liked the combination of elements. The flowers in the front, the line in the water, the rust, and the storm surge barrier in the background.

    I think a close up of the rusted tank in the water would've been nice.

    I think there is potential in the shot. It's just not an exciting perspective or light. But I'm sure you could come up with some good shots at that location when shooting it at sunset and perhaps down from the gangway connecting to the swimming thing.
