Stanchion on Waverton Station, Sydney, Australia

Processing: cropped, unsharp radius 1, level 0.5, threshhold 0

300+ photos and nothing really stands out yet, but I've been having a lot of fun taking closeups
- one of the reasons I went for an E-1 over alternatives is that the 14-54 makes a decent macro lens.

300 Photos & Having Fun...

What more could you ask for? Don't give up Danny, even the pros shoot lots of stuff before they get that gem!

thanks Blayne

I'm off on my first trip with the E-1 tomorrow - a week in Canberra - and there should be lots to photograph!

This is a great subjet Danny!! Rust, texture, colors, i just wish you composed it more centered. Here it looks like it's escaping the eyes to the bottom left corner. Still a good shot INHO.

thanks Jamal

I've had a play with it and I think you're right -- the little spot on the bottom right was just a distraction, and a tighter crop works better. I've uploaded a new version of the image.
