Stuff like taking photos on my perspective on life and getting messages across / people etc more emotion is what i'm after.

Here is the story:

 

- NZ Was booked for my brother and his gf, they've been dating for about 2 years. Anyway it came about 3 weeks off, and it was her 18th, was a good night etc etc etc and the next night she dumped him for an unknown reason. Therefore this NZ trip was all messed up as my parents already paid the x amount. Mum and dad set down a few laws for me to catch up on schoolwork when i returned and i promised etc, so all the details got changed into my name so now i was going to NZ for the 2 week holiday. Last weekend comes and I go out Saturday night, telling them one place and i ended up at another anyway they found out and i didn't return home that night cause i was pretty ruined stayed 200M up the road at a mates gf's, woke up with 15 missed calls from dad/home and about 10msgs telling me to come now especially from my brother saying "come home now, mum isn't happy doesn't look like your coming to NZ" as soon as i red that i BOLTED home.. not to a good welcoming, they'd changed all the names to my brothers mate...

 

They left this afternoon, with me watching out my blinds them driving off for the flight...

I've been good since etc and today mum booked for me to head off Friday with her so it'll be Friday-Thursday so a good week. Really happy and thankful and i can't wait to get some good photos!

 

Two from today:

casey - sorry to hear mate.. Chicks eh.. Similar thing has happened to me before.. I dont get why the name got changed again and you arent going? Btw dont take to many shots with the lens facing directly at the sun. Not good for the camera or your eye.. Otherwise i like the effect from the 1st pic..

 

 

s15pwnd - welcome to this side of the forum :) Thanks for sharing some of your pics.. They look good :) Looking forward to seeing more.

Casey, 5D2 is gun!! FF advantage FTW...subject isolation is better

Sounds like you have been a naughty boy, lol

So i guess you're not going to NZ anymore, doh

I like that moon shot (good perspective), but the other 2 dont do anything for me.

 

Vicks, Hosier Lane, lol

Maybe a little overexposed for me, but the pano is a nice touch.

 

S15pwnd, me likey those skating shots, got anymore?

Considering the alley way is on a slant as well, was freaking annoying.

for most of the day all i was using was my 17-55mm with then with a few a really cheap screw on fish eye wideangle from china...

also a few with my 50 mm...

 

Some of the angles arent the best ill admit, think i may need to try more? maybe a little closer too :S

S15pwnd, that china fisheye doesnt seem to have any distortion effect...lol @ the china copy

Nah, just reminded me of some shots i took with a crop lens on FF with tunnel vision effect, full vignetting.

Yea man its so cruel caging them up and chaining them.. No freedom!!

 

I went on a wild safari a year ago and spotted three different wild tigers.. They are just incredible animals and the shear size of them and athleticism is just beyond extraordinary. So how was your trip overall?

when we got to the tiger temple they just seemed so placid and docile, i think they must have drugged them so they dont cause a threat to people... they are such beatiful animals...you cant imagine how big they are till you see one really close up. so sleek!

 

the trip was awesome, i started in phuket and did a few tours there, explored, the culture is awesome except for the people constanly trying to pressure you to buy things or take a taxi ride!

I felt terrible when we saw the elephants as well, i went for a ride on them but felt horrible afterwards, that long stick thing they hit them with looks painful!

its an amazing country, went through the canals to the floating markets/to phi phi island & heaps more!

 

ive seen you've been all through europe? how was that overall?

id love to one day but its not cheap! i guess i could sell the s15? <_ src="%7B___base_url___%7D/uploads/emoticons/default_tongue.png" alt=":P">

Ah, dont be soft :lol:

U have a 1D MkII right?? its got weather seals...

(not that i'ld trust that anyway; i've seen 1Ds MkIIIs stuffing up regardless)

Its those shots that u can get when others dont that count :thumbsup:

 

Don't worry, I'm sure after a few clicks enjoying urself in the snow you wont bother about the gear...

very very nice pics you got there.. especially loved the tiger the the boats/beach photos.

 

+1 to disagree with caging them and chaining them down
