Photography Enthusiasts' Thread

  • I've had a passion for photography for many years now from film and slide film to digital. One of the reasons my wife and I enjoy travel is to photograph new places.

    In terms of what I'm hoping to see in this thread, the only rule is that the image be your own (taken by you) and that in terms of propriety it be acceptable for all ages, including children.

  • Cinque Terre is a series of five towns hugging the rock face along the western coast of Italy. We walked to all five towns a few summers ago.

  • A picture of the Shard (building) and the surrounding area in London Bridge, taken (with my Nokia 808 Pureview phone) from one of the buildings I work in.

    Image has been down scaled for posting here, as the original (38 Mega pixel) image is nearly 10 Megabytes in size.

    The Shard

  • Very nice, Linux. With the Lumia you can crop but still retain great detail. My next phone will be the 830 in a couple of months when my contract is up. I have not heard of the Shard building. It looks pretty awesome. Here are a couple from London when we were there a few years ago... the tardis (uh... phone booth) and Big Ben:

  • Searching for a cameraphone, came across Samsung Pixon.
    The description says its matrix is 1/3.2 inches - how's that?
    Corpus type is monoblock and it's 13.8 mm thick:

  • The Big Island of Hawaii... not our favorite but still a wonderful island that continues to grow due to volcanic activity.

  • A few shots of Niagara Falls. I grew up there.

  • From the last time I was on the beach in Porto Seguro, Bahia, Brazil. Taken with my Xperia S (12MP), I was not using the orginal ROM, so the quality could be better.

  • Beautiful beach but where are the swimmers? Is the water warm there?

  • Not sure if I have an underlying fetish for tall buildings ?, but anyway here is another one.

    This was taken from another building I work in, over on Canary Wharf island, of the HSBC (Bank) building.

    The picture was mainly taken because the building appears a lot taller (because of its shape ?) than it actually is (42 floors).

  • Beautiful beach but where are the swimmers? Is the water warm there?

    In July, the water is cold. I took this pic before swimmers show up.

  • @linuxmint7: that shot is amazing, particularly because of the perspective. Can you imagine being a window washer there? LOL 🙂

    @sidney: I always thought ocean water in Brazil would be warm. I'm surprised that it can be cold as well.

  • It is in the summer 🙂

  • Sky Wheel in Niagara Falls, Canada.

  • Elora, Ontario. Son lives in the region.

  • Old Fort Stevens. They say it is haunted. All I can say is: it gives you the creeps when you walk inside its tunnels.

  • What's your camera, Leushino?

  • I have a few, joshl. Currently I have a Sony RX100 which I absolutely love and a Nikon D90. Some of the images were taken with a Nikon D3200 and a Panasonic FZ200 but I got rid of both of these cameras and in truth, I seldom use my Nikon D90 anymore (it's too bulky and heavy). The Sony RX100 is small and easy to travel with so it has become my main camera. My wife liked it so much that I bought one for her as well. We also both use our Windows Phones (HTC 8x) for some grab shots when our cameras aren't with us. In a couple of months our contracts are up so we're considering the Lumia 830. We can't get the Lumia 930 here.

    I like your sky, Linux.
    Natural colours... :wizard:

    What contracts?

    :yes:, the main tip to make good photos is not an advanced camera - but a camera that is with you.
