St Annes Pier Night Reflection

Caught this on the way back from shooting tonight's sunset and thought it deserved a separate post :). Stuart

Re: St Annes Pier Night Reflection

Definitely worth a separate post. Great composition. That's definitely a challenge contender, as are your sunset shots. You are on a roll. Maybe you should do an all-nighter.

Re: St Annes Pier Night Reflection

Very good capture, Stuart...the reflection is so clear, almost making it as a mirror image

Was it you, or the camera resting on the sand bag, beautiful image anyway.

Re: St Annes Pier Night Reflection

Thanks Dave, me neither, just a lucky break. I was pleased I stopped, especially when I noticed the puddle to use as a mirror. Stuart

Re: St Annes Pier Night Reflection

Thanks Daniel. Confess, I was feeling quite pleased with myself I do wonder if I really need the dSLR gear or get enough value from it.

Still getting used to the FZ50 and have two gripes with it: the write time with RAW and teh magnified screen when using manual focus - useful when I want it but irritating when it comes on and I do not want it - not sure if can be configured in any way. Stuart

Re: St Annes Pier Night Reflection - John

Thanks John - well, I'd already had my feet sinking into the soft sand, tide was only part way on its way out, thank heavens for waterproof Gortex dog-walking shoes. So, it was just the camera, at 2" above the water it gave me the angle to get the reflection. I'd have tried the same shot with the FZ50 but 35mm wasn't enough to get it all in. Also, its battery was getting quite low - got a spare on order. Stuart

Thanks Ian, Joshua, that was one the best evening's photography I've ever had. I just need to muster the courage to try a very early morning session Stuart
