Just been over to the Team Digital Blog and I must say there are some pretty cool posts at the moment. Some info on why Eizo monitors are so good, and why I use one, software called Dropbox for syncing your files across your computers and details on how to get you plugins to work with CS5. Also the coolest one, details on the new Gigapan for dslrs. I am hoping to get one to review for the lads and there might even be some extra exciting news from me in the next couple of weeks. Check it out

Thanks to everyone for such awesome comments, I was quite humbled by the support everyone has given me and it almost bought a tear to my eye. I was ready to chuck it all in last night but realise that would be like saying goodbye to my friends. Even though a lot of you I haven’t met we all share a common interest in photography so we will always have something good to talk about.
The blog is pretty hard to keep up with and this is part of my frustration but it goes with the territory. I enjoy looking at everyone else’s blogs when I get time and as you know these things take time so please don’t think I don’t see what your all doing. Posting comments is getting harder to do so remember I’m still out there checking for new awesome images to inspire me too.
I’m proud of this community we have and welcome anyone else who wants to be involved. I am going forward now with a positive outlook and to offer more great images and posts to keep us all enthused about photography.
Now once I get things under control here I have a photo comp to run. I have booked the cabin on True North for the Sydney trip as first prize next year but want to get it up and going asap. So now is the time to get out and shoot, your hard work could get you on the trip of a lifetime. I’m thinking about booking on this trip myself. Now if there are any companies that want to throw up some minor prizes for free publicity let me know.
thanks again everyone, oh and Canon and I are friends again!!

Seems my Nikon post has ruffled a few feathers at Canon. To make it up to them I want to talk about the new 17mm TS that I purchased from Team Digital in Perth. I hope Nikon have had a look at this lens as it is amazing. I have been blown away by its sharpness and it was evident when in live view at 10x magnification. I have the 50mm f/1.2 and the 85mm f1.2 and they are awesome lenses but this is better again. It is a weird looking bit of kit with a bulbous front element and bloody scary to use as that bit of glass can scrape on anything so easily. Don’t know if there is a lens hood for it but I think it needs one. Maybe someone from Canon could enlighten us. The images I have are so sharp and will post some as I get a chance, I am in crisis mode or is that suck up mode. Still a little bit of controversy earned me 36,000 hits on the blog in under two weeks and a few people to take notice. Sorry Canon you still make bloody good gear, if you have any news you want to spread let me know!!
Also a big thanks to Ben at team digital for letting us use two TS lenses to help make our minds up to get one. Cheers buddy, and thanks for the great service!! 😉

I loved this bridge, it is so bold and typical of the cool things they do in Melbourne. Who is running our city, and why is it so plain??? The morning was cold and foggy and I had two dodgy characters checking me out as I took this pic. Made me realize I was in a big city, in a dodgy area and that I was probably stupid for wandering around. This is gang heartland after all, underbelly style!! Luckily it was too cold to hang around for too long so I jumped back in my awesome Hyundi Getz hire car and zoomed off. I’m into white skys at the moment. Something about the simplicity and cleanness, a bit like Tommy P’s mind!!!

I have always wanted to photograph this spot. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be due to the huge contrast. I think shooting this when it was darker outside that would have helped. Still it is pretty amazing and the water was thundering down that hole in the rock. Other shots I have seen of this place the water is just a trickle. Mark and I got lucky, or unlucky, not sure really.

We are currently staying in the Tambourine Mountains and trying to dodge the rain. The positive is that all the creeks and waterfalls are going off. Got some better shots than this one this morning on a great rainforest walk. The photographers here are spoilt. If you can’t get a nice forest pic you are either blind or off your nut! which in the case of Nimbin would be most likely. Today has been perfect for photography. Should get better as the week progresses. Had my first encounter with a Cane Toad yesterday, big ugly suckers they are. I did the right thing and belted it to death, wasn’t pretty though and you could hear my squeals for miles. I then had to pick the sucker up and put it in the bin. Didn’t think they were this far down.

This is a pic I took today of the Leeuwin Sailing Ship that was just off the coast at Meelup. There was lightning going off in the distance and I was thinking to myself…..nah I wouldn’t be sailing off into that. A single image capture, ok it was hard just to take one shot. Lee ND Grads and fuji the wonderdog to keep me company. Hope someone else is taking photos.
