I have been kindly lent a macro lens – Canon Macro lens EFS  60mm 1:2.8 USM – and it is amazing to shot with :) ! I’ve experimented with water-droplets and generally snapping at anything really close-up, here is a ‘Jumping-Spider’ super close-up with the macro lens and slightly cropped.

Up in country Victoria a couple weeks back – just great to see all the gum trees ‘furry’ with leaves as they rejuvenate since the February ’09 Bushfires. I had the Canon 5D Mark II with me so I was testing all the features and the full frame is really sweet,  was about a metre away from this cottage chimney and was able to take a snap with minimal lens distortion! I thought black and white suited well, what do you think – original just below?

I was in the possession of an amazing camera over the weekend – the Canon 5D Mark II – I captured a few nice shots but didn’t get the chance to fully test it out in the short time I had it. I was using a Canon 70mm-200mm f/2.8 Telephoto Lens while taking these flowers and the DOF-Depth of Field combined with the lens length and aperture of ~2.8 was amazingly small which made great macro shots.

Flinders Street Station is probably photographed hundreds of times a day, but it is at night when it’s best to photograph. I took this at 11pm last weekend, and the streaming car-lights and the warm tones of the building makes it look great by night. I have stacked two photos here to capture both turning and straight-on headlights, and only cropped slightly on the edges to centre the building more, otherwise no more post-processing was needed!
