The early bird catches the bus by 

Well… this was not my bus and while it was very early in the morning, I had actually finished my nightshift and was waiting for a bus to take me home.

I had just got my “new” IXUS 850is and was (and still am) trying to configure it enough so that I could replicate photographs that I took from my old battered 850is. Just after a few shots it was already on its way to being better than any other IXUS model I have tried and owned… of course still not quite at the level that my original 850is could do… but some more tweaks and I think that this twin will indeed do what it needs to.

Anyway… while there are obvious problems with this, I am VERY happy with the bus effect :-)

    Whoooooooosh!! that’s fabulous!!!

  • Hehe, thank you! I was very happy with how it came out… am definitely happy that I bought a “new” 850is… nothing else in the IXUS range lived up to it IMO. :-)

    Wowa!! Cool capture Ellis!! Love the speedy colors of the bus, greatly captured!!

  • Thank you so much! It was nice to be able to take that sort of image again with a point and shoot, it’s been a while since I had a decent one that works!

    Excellent! And a nice touch with the ‘Photo & Digital Specialists’ across the road ;)

  • Thank you! The shop behind was a lucky coincidence :-) If I tried to recreate this, I bet I couldn’t ;-)
