OK, gang, bowls went very nice..

But you know what? They were very round. Let's get something with the angles this time. Something simple. Let's shoot some triangles.

If you're totally out of ideas - some "yield" road signs will do, but this should be your last resort.

As always: fresh pictures, moderate post-processing.
For the rest of the basic rules and index please check out this sticky.

Let's get some triangles! :-) :wink

    And just for Nik (shooting while driving, so quality sucks)

    Yeah I do, I drive & shoot quite often (I know it's not safe, but it's fun =c). They do always seem to get in the way.

    Stairwell, Goodrich Castle. These stairs are sandstone, parts of the castle date from the 12th Century.

    Very interesting take on the triangles - and a great picture all by itself! thumb.gif

    I own both Nikolai. And now I use both. Lucky guy!:D
    I think you do know, only you don't remember...:D
    The 350 was was for my wife but ...
    Good for me.

    The 16-35 is on the 20D, while the 350 is with the 70-200.
    BUT
    As it is much easier to shoot with 2 cameras alike, I am going to borough my daughter's 20D to go to the next travel.
    Quite comfortable: 2 cameras = same procedure = no changing lens (not exactly because I may want to insert the 1.4 multiplier )

    I see. Yes, I do remember you got both 350 and 20. I was simply wondering why you were using "the lesser body", so to speak. mwink.gif
    And yes, I agree that having multiple bodies is heaven sent! deal.gif

    Just another proof of the fact that it's not the camera, it's the photographer...thumb.gif
