Interesting shots. The first one is spoiled by the path being blurred?
It also shows quite serious moire on the roller shutter to the right
of the man.

There's also moire on the aluminium above the handrail on the second shot
and on the sloping roof of the last.

Is the moire due to the camera or processing.

Hi Algi, thanks for the comments. What you are seeing is not moire and is not due to the camera or the processing. This is due to compression artefacts caused by reducing / compressing the images for upload onto this Forum; I have checked all of the originals and the full size processed versions are clean. Let's not set any hares running about the K-5iis 'moire' issue!

Regarding the first shot, the 'blurring' on the path is intentional. The image has been combined with a textured background to add a different look to the buildings and the path; whether this adds to the image or not is down to personal preference, but it's not blurring.

I think you will see similar things if you zoom right in on any images uploaded to the Gallery or the Forum, as the size of image it allows is massively compressed from the original. The extent of this will depend on he method of compression used; I have used 'bicubic sharper' on these are this seems to suit web images well.

Nice set David.

Really like 'Girl on a Picture Stall' and the vibrant colours in contrast to the buildings in 'Ghost Town'.

Very creative shots David, amazing variety from this trip. Favourites for me here are 2 & 3, for the simplicity, but the detail in the other shots is a perfect contrast. No 4 is weaker I think, not much of interest, but I guess its a grab shot thrown in for variety.

This is a good set of varied shots David. #2 is OK but doesn't really interest me and the sunset might appeal to me more at a larger size. In the shop window, the arm of the bloke inside is rather distracting. At the top for me are the first and last, although the others also have lots of interesting details.

Hi Chris, it was 'The Adventure of The Seas', Royal Caribbean. Highly recommended.
