Why are you taking pictures of locks?

Crown Hill

Posted on Mon 6th Nov, 2006, 9:33pm

ISO: 200, Shutter speed: 1/25, Aperture: f/1.4,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: Minor,
Lens: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L, Focal length: 35mm,
Captured: 5th November 2006, 6:11pm,

This is Crown Hill in Croydon. I'd never actually noticed the church and skyline before but yesterday evening it was a nice sunset and this was the scene.

I did try some more conventional shots (ie normal angle, whole scene in focus) but they looked crap. I was much happier with this.

Great DOF, and the 'odd' angle makes the photo

WoW! Jamey this has definitely got to sit in your portfolio.

It's already there :)

Looks rather out of place among the others, now I go to look at it but to hell with it. I like it.

Nice mate, love the DOF

This is a lot BETTER Jamey, love the DOF and sharpness to the sign... I like sign photo's and I really need to have a bash at taking some oneday.

Nice shot. When I saw the sign of the tram and the name Croydon, I thought this was in Melbourne.

Really clear definition on the signpost with the colour being mirrored in the sunset.

At a recommendation from Jide Alakija's blog, I paid your site a visit and got addicted. The images are off the hook! This is a cool shot. The sky in the background is brilliant. I like unique shots of signs like these. Very nice. You just got yourself another fan!

Awesome mate. The colours, the odd angle, the DOF are all fab. It just shows that you can take something as mundane as a tram sign and turn it into a piece of art!
