This was my view on the way home for most of the night. Speedo on zero and parked up in traffic with an occasional stroll around when people got out for a chat :)

Nice shot of the Mrs mate. Video is superb quality for an internet video :thumbup: . Which camera are you using? or is it something to do with the way you have uploaded?

it's from the 5Dmk2 mate. i'm still in the process of working out conversation, codecs...etc etc. i'm getting the hang of it now though. editing is a whole new ball game, nothing like stills. i did take 20 or so clips but thought i'd just bang 2 together to see what it looked like.

lovely first pic caroline. :thumbup:

John! a couple of things i do is....shoot manually. get a correct exposure manually and fire away in the knowledge your camera wont be fooled with dodgy metering. just watch for the sun coming out.

if you can, shoot in RAW. giving you way more control over W/B, which can be really tricky with snow. different times of day give different W/B settings, more so than normal. don't be too concerned with blowing highlights! it's nearly impossible to get that 'wonderfully' exposed shot, after all snow is white! in my last pic, i had highlight warning, but wasn't really bothered.

if it's not blue sky, go with B&W...like what you did. the little bit of colour there is on a cloudy, snowy day is negligible, so dump the colour.

Thanks guys :D

They're on the Norfolk coast - just up from Winterton-on-Sea. We parked there and then just kept walking up the coast. You can probably get in closer. We were there at dawn - so it was an early start!

Edited to say: Agree with Aaron - really like that last BW pic, John. I like the colour one above it too - lovely and crisp.

Quit all this HDR stuff and start using ND grads you bunch of lazy gets! :lol:

That upside down baby seal could possibly make you a few quid Caroline. The eye contact is fantastic.
