While in Sydney, I kept playing with the HDR on my 5D. The biggest lesson when shooting handheld HDR is ghosting is a pain, and simply doesn’t work when there is motion. The options are to keep the originals (The 5D has the option of just keeping the combined HDR or keeping all shots) or shooting with the knowledge that you will discard a few shots (or a lot of shots, depending on the situation). An example of the ghosting below.
Despite the handheld challenges, I do like the way it brings out the colors.
Now on to Manly Beach in Sydney. We wandered around Manly late in the afternoon after coming off a very long – 18 hour travel through the night. As you would expect the seafood choices were fantastic.
I enjoyed the Fish Shack .. and we had a chuckle at their Est.
I am not a big beer drinker, but sitting on the beach makes it taste different. I have a new favourite brew, and it is from Australia: Little Creatures pale ale.
A few shots from Manly beach.
Great food abounds.
A very purple bike. I cannot picture myself riding this bike (smile).
A side street, with graffiti art.
A very cool little town.
