Smoky Port Sunset # 2 by George Petrovsky

This picture is also dedicated to my friend, Dennis Gay.

My previous picture tells the story of the undisputed Prince of Port Macquarie.

Nikon D 80, Sigma 17-70mm lens hand held @ 70mm, Program setting,
1/800sec @ f 7.10, ISO 400, Pattern metering, Auto WB. Minimal levels adjustment in Photoshop Elements 3.

An old photographer and his dog trying to find what turns a photograph into a worthwhile picture. Perhaps try to take a worthwhile photograph in the first place? The digital darkroom is a creative, fascinating place. If only I could learn to use it and the cameras I have to best effect… I love “mucking around”, as you can see!

Now, you know all my stuff is Copyright If you try and pinch any of it, I’ll jump through your screen and rip your bloody arms off!
