I went to stay at some friends this weekend in Barrow and managed to get a few snaps. A few of my favourite shots are below. As always feedback is welcomed (it's how we improve) .






















Thanks in advance

A very nice set, love the third shot, very symetrical. Last two are very good.
My piccies.

Thanks snappychappy, I have just noticed that shot 3 is slightly slanted to the left... I think I will tweak it to make it more symmetrical.

Barrow-in-Furness (Cumbria).

I have adjusted the train station as it was also skew-whiff

Impressive knowledge... yes it is, but I thought the title would be too long, if I said Barrow-in-Furness and Ulverston. You've caught me out

I like the goose shots, in particular. And the opening b/w townscape. Is the band stand shot a little over exposed? The sky looks rather washed out. (Bane of my existence: do you expose for foreground or sky? Can't have both with digital, in my experience.)

Well done!
Best wishes,

Andrew

If you're owning up...I did a whole shoot with my K100 D set on asa 800 the other day. It's so remarkably clean and lacking in noise that I only noticed a slight softness when I started post-processing and cropping... Quite liked the results, actually.

Jealous of your fish-eye...

Ha ha... maybe we could make this the unofficial 'confession' thread.
