A short walk from my hotel and I am in Hyde Park looking at the very nice fountain. With so many visitors around, I used BIG Stopper from LEE filter for long exposure to blur out the people so that I will get a cleaner image of the fountain. Please enjoy my picture.
In a Christmas season like this, there were Christmas trees everywhere and while in Sydney, I saw a great combination of a St Mary’s Cathedral with Christmas tree all in one picture. I found a great spot for setting up my tripod for a long exposure shot. This is a HDR image and I love how the movement scattered clouds in the sky created a great background like it was painted by a brush! Please enjoy and have a merry merry Xmas!
I made a walking trip around the city in Sydney and came across El Alamein Memorial Fountain and was fascinated by it at how it looks like a dandelion beautifully spraying the water making it an almost perfect round shape. It was in the day time and not many people around so I took that chance to grab a long exposed RAW file shot to make it into HDR.
As this month is the month for Christmas, I would like to share a shot of Fukuoka tower showing a beautiful Christmas tree lighted on the tower. It was a cooling night but I wanted to capture a good composition of the Fukuoka tower with the right timing of long exposure to get the Christmas tree. Merry Christmas!
As I made way back out, I caught a view of the steps downwards towards torii gate and I decided to take a last shot before I leave this awesome place. A visit to Kamishikimi Shrine definitely leaves me a very strong and great memory. It is beautiful, mysterious and peace where not all foreigners like me had visited before. I am very glad to have been there.
At the back of the Kamishikimi Shrine, there is a beaten path up to the top and I saw a faded leading line up and I knew I had to capture a composition like this with trees in the surroundings. This was definitely not an easy climb for me as the soil on the ground was not as firm as it looks like. Please enjoy.
