Walkaround Industrial estate

Waiting for my car to be tested, I just had half an hour to take some pics in the vicinity of the garage on the industrial estate.  Some sunlight for once

Re: Walkaround Industrial estate

Your lead flower shots are very appealing.

Re: Walkaround Industrial estate

thanks

I prefer taking industrial architecture shots myself and have dozens from that day of chemical engineering  towers, pipe manifold and trays and so on but I doubt that anyone else is going to be interested.

Re: Walkaround Industrial estate

I like the juxtaposition of nature and industry in frame #7.

Re: Walkaround Industrial estate

Its an odd place:  someone spent a lot of money in hard and soft landscaping some decades ago most of which has been trashed by now but there are still pockets of shrub planting ( and this pond ) that remain intact.  The pond probably survived because you can't get any nearer to it than the verge from which I was standing.

Re: It takes two

Lovely set of shots again.

My favourites are the semi silhouettes against the hazy backgrounds.

Thanks rich. Frame #3 was taken on a very cold fall morning. Probably a father/daughter. #2 is a bit of a mystery what was going on at that moment in the relationship.

Re: Red Kite

Great work on flying birds. I'm trying to find the cx 70-300 on market but it's too hard. My dx one with ft1 supports only af-c at most so that focusing is hard for quickly moving.

Re: This month with your Nikon 1 - December 2020

Just seen your bird photos and these autumn leaves.  Both sets seriously appealing.

Goid luck with your search for the cx 70-300 by the way

Great shot -and  hope your screens now calibrated.

First look at this on a phone, took me some time to convince myself that it was dirty water and not a muddy wheat field after harvest.

Colors look good to my eye. I'd move the black point a bit and probably add a little more contrast as this looks somewhat flat to me.

Nice action.
