On Wednesday I waited until the afternoon when the sun came out, to shoot over to Kings Park around 4 o'clock when I would get the sunset on the war memorial. I thought all the crowds would have gone home but there was still heaps around, it was such a balmy afternoon. I really loved how the photo's came out. The sun was slowly going down behind me creating lovely colours in the sky and coating the buildings with honey. I have included 3 photo's of the same scene to show you how the sun differed every 2 minutes, it was dusk when I got home that is how fast it moves at this time of the day. I love how it lit up the city below as well, bathing it in sunshine. The reflections on the water where amazing. Have a go, you need to watch the sky if it is clear with some clouds it can be magical. The number on the end i.e. 1/ is automatically set by my camera where I set the iso to 100 and the focus to f8.

iso 80 f/5 1/800
iso 125 f28 1/100This was my first day of workshop, the two photo's above I went out before most where up as I wanted to catch the sunrise coming over the land about 6.30 am. this was on manual setting, at this stage we hadn't covered iso etc
iso 100 f4 1/400
We climbed over the fence to take this and the next one, the stubble had been burnt so ground was black. Taken at this angle because the sun was hitting the wall on the left and shadow on the front creating shape and form.
iso 100 f8 1/125
taken with sun behind me, got down real low to look up the creek bed, light hitting the water creates sparkle
iso 100 f8 1/40
iso 100 f8 1/400
I have got down low and used the fence as a frame, which worked really well, I think!
iso 800 f4.5 1/15 -0.3
this is the chapel in Saint Gertrudes boarding house for girls, also where we stayed, this was taken from the upper balcony which was in the middle of two lots of dormitory's that we slept in. camera was tilted upwards to get the lovely shape of the ceiling, photo is a bit crooked and I will straighten it later.
iso 800 f4.5 1/3200 -0.3
this one is for you Phil, thought you would like a close up of the beautiful angels
iso 100 -0.3ev f4.5 1/640
using a block in wall as a frame, nice shadows
iso 100 -0.3ev f4.5 1/2000
This was taken close to the side of the building with the camera on angle and tipped up, makes a more interesting shot of the building
iso 800 -0.3ev f4.5 1/3200
this is a good example of the wrong iso setting it should have been 100 but forgot to change it. This is the boys boarding school and where we had our meals. I toured all over the inside and will share some really good photo's taken inside.
iso 3200 -0.3 ev f4.5 1/80
this one is interesting as we bumped the iso up to 3200. This one is my favourite chapel as it is in a quite naive Spanish style, long and narrow, and very white. there is a guy vacuuming about mid way.
taken late afternoon the flock of birds being the point of interest, blasted things I waited ages to catch them I am sure they had camera radar
late afternoon, lovely shadows giving shape and form
the timber railing giving point of interest
If you are still with me, I gave up putting the other details from the photo info, as I haven't learnt what they mean as yet. Hoped I shared enough info to help you.

ISO 800 f4.5 1/125
The rule of thumb with ISO was inside 800 and outside 100. I learnt the ISO pretty quick but still need to practise on focus. Portraits where only covered very little, mainly landscapes. Will add more later.
