    Post Sunset Series 1

    I had to increase the contrast and lowered the brightness to reduce the scan lines on my flatbed scanner.

    Shot in Melbourne

    I think it's dark cos of my flatbed scanner.

    In my opinion, in Melbourne Autumn has the best sunsets. Or during winter on days when it isn't as cloudy. And summer evenings hav some nice blue skies. But it's going to be about 40 oC now.

    for these series of shots I left the camera on auto, which is matrix metering. What I do now, is depending on which area I want exposed I meter from there, and I over expose by 1 or 1/2 a stop. My camera does not have spot, so it's center weighted, i have to take a general reading of the scene then decide accordingly. Then I let the lab know I over exposed those shots, and they pull it down (I dunno if my usage of terms here is correct) for me.
