Normally I try to stay away from the inner city area, but during July I had to do some taxi duty for family, and took the camera along as you do.
Camera: A6000
Lenses: Sony SEL 55-210, Samyang 12mm F2

That was my favourite from the day as well. I can remember visiting this area with my father when it was a a working dock area. I really like that they incorporated the fake rail lines into the new walkways. The way the curve of the false rails then ties into the perspective of the wide lens was a real bonus

Nice series Dave :2thumbs:. Can't remember much of Melbourne CBD. But do remember years ago staying at the Holiday Inn Hotel/Apartments for 2 weeks and commuting almost daily to an associates' office in Box Hill (or is it Boxhill?). One thing peculiar, well at least to me, is how cars wanting to turn right at the traffic lights, pull over to the left side of the carriageway before making the right turn. Yes?

That's right Mus, but only in the CBD on the intersections with trams, it's so that trams get to move freely through instead of being blocked by turning vehicles.

Nice shots, also liked #4 the best. I was wondering if you had thought about correcting the keystoning? All a matter of taste, I thought it might improve the impact of the images.

I looked at a more corrected perspective, but didn't like the end result, as you say Bob it's all a matter of taste, and for me I liked the way the keystoning effect complimented the curve of the path. when I tried correcting it the shot seemed to lose its visual flow for me. That said I'm still very, very new when it comes to post processing, so it's probable others could achieve better reults.

Thankyou, Dave. They are my first real attempts at wide angle photography in many years. I wish I'd had this camera/lenses last year when my wife and I visited the USA

Nice set... I suggest that you adjust your white balance. Many of the images seem overly yellow in color.
Is this a bit more like it?
