Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave ‘topics’ of imagery :-))

    Beautifully framed and I love the way the light just highlights his watch, wonderful capture Ell

  • Thank you very much Jus :-)
    He was sort of restless and moving about some, and initially I tried to catch that ear-ring … then saw the watch face catch the light, which was a lucky capture! ;-)

    Brillant waht a great capture. Well done yu seeing this and also having the nerve to take your camera out and capture it.

  • Thank you Karen :-)
    I always have the camera out on the tram, just sitting inconspicuously on my lap ;-) ya just never know when an image presents itself! Though I do make sure the tram is travelling along, so that the noise it makes hides the sound of the camera focus beep/actuation ;-)

    Hi Ell, this a really nice tram study. Perfect exposure and framing. What a chunk of chrome :—))

  • Thank you Rhoufi :)
    The tram was starting to slow up to stop for traffic lights under the rail bridge corner Flinders and Spencer, so didn’t expect the light under there to be great (or enough) so was pleasantly surprised when I got this home – it’s better than expected :)
    Yeah, that’s a decent bit of chrome, thankfully: show’s up great in relative low light! ;-)
