Here I Am, Polishing My Tool - 16/12/2009

So here I am again, polishing my tool, which will come as no surprise to those of you who thought I was a bit of a wanker. For one reason or another, mainly 'elf, people, work and cynicism, photography has taken a bit of a back seat this last eighteen months, but the Winter skies are here and it is time to get on.

That, of course, is one of the differences between the Gentleman Snapper and the Workaday Pro - the pro takes more photos to eat, the GS takes less.

Over the coming days and weeks I'll hopefully be discussing those differences further, answering the question "Did You Photoshop That?", finding some toys for Christmas, looking at tripods, and many other such things I haven't thought of yet. For now, let's have some pictures. Taken half an hour apart at Santa Maria da Luz, near Tavira, in Southern Portugal.

Nothing very complicated here, take one Nikon D3, one tripod, one 14-24, and (the magic bit) one Lee ND filter, and shoot. Developed in CaptureNX.

Right, that'll do for today, I'll go back to cleaning the dust magnet that is the D3.
