A friend of mine asked me to join him on a 2 day trip to Siem Reap. I said I wanted to go but not to shoot Ankhor Wat, sunsets and sunrises (I have been before). So we visited Phnom Kulen Waterfall and wandered around town. Plenty of things to shoot.
Not posted with any vigour for a while, but today was a good day!
A friend (who I am starting a photography based business with) invited me out to his family farm. His brother has a 1949 Allis-Chalmers tractor which was a great subject!
All shot on the A6000, some with the SEL35F18 and some with the SEL16F28, all with a polarising filter.
As you all know the island of Manhattan has many bridges. In fact, NYC is home to over 2000 bridges. That's not a typo. I set out on a bridge hunt about 2 months back with the goal of capturing the more famous bridges. However, that quest is quite an undertaking when photography is only a hobby and a small part of my life. So rather than wait until I am done in a 20 years, I wanted to share what I have so far.
These were shot with the A7 or A6000 and a variety of lenses.

What's under GWB? by iShootPics...
Maria Island is a stunningly tranquil Island off the East Coast of Tasmania. The wildlife is abundant and the ancient geography is amazing. There are fossil cliffs on the beach (featured in David Attenborough's Lonely Plant) and an amazing Dolomite ridge formed from volcanic eruption millions of years ago. It was a penal colony in the 1800's and accommodation is camping style in the old Penitentiary (now called Darlington settlement) - part of which is shown in the night sky shot.
All taken with the Sony A7R and the Sony Vario-Tessar T FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS. For the Landscape shots I generally use the Cokin Z Pro system with either a HiTech 0.9 or 0.6 Soft Grad ND and a Cokin Pro CPL. Most are 3 shot HDR +- 1 EV - except for long exposures.
