New Year's Eve.

Recommended Posts

My trusty ol' P610 bridge-cam died just before Christmas so I sent it off for repairs.  I got an email back saying they were waiting for spares to arrive, then another saying the bits were coming from Japan!!!  I couldn't wait any longer so, as I'd had a recent windfall, I went and gotted myself a new Nikon D5600+18mm-55mm lens, along with a 70mm-300mm and 40mm macro lenses, plus circular-polarisers for each one.  The shop didn't have the 70mm-300mm in stock at the time, so I had to go back and collect it a couple o' days later.

The most frustrating bit of the whole experience? Waiting for the battery to charge up so I could play with it...   😄

Anyway, these are the first set of photos from it, I went up to the top floor (5th) of the flats where I live, to get some celebration shots.  I'd discovered that I can see part of the London-Eye previously, so there was a lot of hope for something....

  Good to see  you back WereBo ..... urban night  time images require careful attention in my experience. Nicely caught.

Thank you for the kind words folks, 'tis muchly appreciated 🙂

 

@ Clicker - I did my usual trick with a new camera, set it to the appropriate pre-programmed 'Scene', in this instance 'Night Landscape'.  This gives me a chance to see how well the programmed scenes are, and the exif-data gives me an idea of the settings used, so I can play with 'em later as required.

Just out of curiosity I did a comparison between 2 similar photos, 1 from my old Nikon P610 bridge-cam and the new D5600, now I can't decide which is chalk and which is the cheese......  😄

 

From my new D5600......

Very nice start with your new toy WereBo - we get very little opportunity for night photography where we live, no lights like that!

Smashing captures. 

You have a great view. All I have are flats which look directly into my living room. 😥

Thank you NannyFerret  🙂

I have that too from t'other side of my flat.  It's also a 12-storey block which cuts all my afternoon sunshine in Spring/Summer/Autumn ☹
