Sometimes, in regards to my photography I realized I've moved forward. A night shot I took a year ago from this same lookout no longer exists because I deleted it, it was so bad. This one is better but perfect - but nevertheless not one to be ashamed of.
I am a fan of the photographer Steve McCurry, famous for his 'Afghan Girl' link Check out his blog on my sidebar if you like, his photography of people in faraway places is inspiring.
He is known for not giving specifics of his settings for photos because he said you have to figure it out for yourself, it's all about the situation of any given time and the available light. Ah, that's the challenge - understanding all the components that are really how the camera sees the light.
Have a good weekend and if you are in Australia, have a good Australia Day. Like our song says, we do have 'beauty rich and rare'.
