    Hello all

    My job requires me to travel interstate or overseas occasionally and I thought I'd share with you some of the photos I have taken so far this year. Hope you will enjoy it and I will update the thread whenever I have new photos. Please feel free to comment and provide constructive feedback which will then allow me to improve on my photography skills.

    Now I have!!! lol

    Was at Govetts Leap this morning. Sunrise wasn't epic and it was freezing!!! I think I didn't get the settings right on this one so I will be back!

    I bet it was cool this morning! With a little (slight amount of) snow overnight & the wind chill factor too. It's certainly a lovely sunrise view of it though.

    This is the best I could get a couple of weeks ago.

    And last Sunday a view from Scenic World, Katoomba of the Three Sisters & Mount Solitary.

    Pretty ordinary lighting unfortunately & either too cloudy or hardly any at all.

    That should be fun. It's been ages since I've been out there & I think it was in my 1974 Corolla during the later 70's that I dove it out as far as I could, crossing some deep ruts & denting the floor on one (I had to panel beat the floor under the seat). I'll be looking forward to seeing some of the photos.

    What a great look at your countryside, thanks for posting these. I love the way the sunlight reflects off the rocks in the Govetts Leap shot.

    Firedogg Have cash, will spend

    Fantastic set of photos Kelvin.
    Looks like you've spent some time around the NSW and Vic coastlines.
    I love the Starry Night.
    I hope to see more of your work soon.

    Hi Michael

    Thanks for your compliments and I'm glad you like the photos that I've taken so far. I'll keep on shooting and post my work whenever I can. :smile:

    I like the Starry Night too but somehow I find that photo a bit too noisy. ISO was 3200 and perhaps my limited Lightroom skills didn't help too. It would be ideal if there is less noise....anyway I'll keep trying!!!

    I took that shot on the observation deck of the Excel tower. Hard place to shoot actually. Lots of people up there, distracting lights, reflections in the window.
