This was an exercise in a number of things. We were walking towards Darlinghurst for a night out and on the way saw the sunset. I quickly took 4 portrait shots with the X100, handheld f8 at 1/125 just to see how it would come out.
Been getting up early a few mornings now for sunrise shots. The sky has been very clear. Perhaps a little for really moody and exciting shots. But this gives me a bit more time to practice and keep it simple. At least, the weather has been warm enough. At about 5.30am, there is more light than I expect. You can see alot of features. Apart from the runners, bikers and fishermen, there are late party goers who just want to sit down, have a deep meaningful chat and watch the sunrise. On the following Saturday, a couple from Cairns flew down to catch the holiday P&O cruise. They were so excited to watch the sunrise and their boat coming in to the passenger terminal. Hopefully, this will be the first of a series of sun rise shots.
